MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Fontainebleau Miami Beach plans to construct a 50,000-square-foot event center featuring state-of-the-art technology and modern design, the property announced in a media release. Scheduled to open in early 2025, the center will be adjacent to the iconic hotel and connected by a sky bridge.
The new center will include two dividable ballrooms, 10 breakout rooms, and an expansive 9,000-square-foot rooftop deck, adding to the property’s 200,000 square feet of existing indoor and outdoor meetings and events space.
The project is designed to address large-scale event needs and meet the growing market for business and leisure events in Miami, which has seen explosive growth as both a vacation destination and a business center.
“As we witnessed the influx of people and companies moving to Miami over the last three years, there was a clear opportunity to build on the long legacy of Fontainebleau Miami Beach as a leading destination for elite travelers and create an epicenter of experiences and events in South Florida,” Brett Mufson, president of Fontainebleau Development, said in the release. “The elevated design and state-of-the-art features of the center will bring a new level of modern-day luxury to Miami Beach.”
The center’s 18,000-square-foot Grand Ballroom will feature an outdoor terrace and divide into four smaller spaces, while the 9,000-square-foot Junior Ballroom will divide in three. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer water views, as well as a connection to the outdoors. The event center will be attached to the hotel’s Tresor Tower by an indoor sky bridge.
Advanced digital amenities planned throughout the center include LED walls, touchscreens, and audiovisual tools. The center is being constructed to meet LEED certification standards, with features such as insulated glass and rainwater collection and recycling systems.
