Expected to break ground this year, Legacy Hotel & Residences will be located in the heart of mega-project Miami Worldcenter (MWC) in Downtown Miami. MWC is reported to be the second-largest urban development in the United States. Legacy Hotels & Residences will have 310 residences sitting atop a 219-room hotel with ground-floor retail.

The luxury skyscraper will feature:

  • a first-of-its-kind Center for Health + Performance,
  • Miami’s first enclosed seven-floor rooftop atrium with a restaurant bar and lounge,
  • the city’s first Singapore-inspired cantilevered pool soaring 500 feet in the sky,
  • and a members-only lounge.

“We are effectively taking the biggest brands and trends in hospitality, wellness, luxury and lifestyle and bringing them under one roof,” said Daniel Kodsi, founder and CEO of RPC. “Partnering with Accor was a natural business decision; they fulfill that lifestyle element missing in downtown and offer a piece of the famed SLS and Delano South Beach experience on the mainland.”

Chadi Farhat, chief operating officer of sbe, said, “We are very proud to work with Miami-leading developer RPC and its founder and CEO, Dan Kodsi. This project is expanding our lifestyle footprint to Miami Worldcenter and we are excited for Legacy Hotels & Residences to join the curated lifestyle experiences of the Morgans Originals brand in this very important urban development.”

Legacy Hotel & Residences is the latest property to join Accor’s network of luxury and lifestyle properties in Miami, a portfolio that includes properties across leading brands such as Delano, Mondrian, SLS, Hyde, MGallery and more. Morgans Originals is the company’s newest lifestyle brand. It is described as providing more than a conventional hotel experience and offering the best in food, mixology, design and atmosphere. Select properties, all individual in nature, are slated to join the brand in the next few months.
