Accor, under an agreement with Miami-based real estate developer RPC (Royal Palm Companies), will manage and operate Downtown Miami’s newest mixed-use tower, Legacy Hotel & Residences under the Morgans Originals brand.
This announcement marks the launch of Morgans Originals, Accor’s newest lifestyle brand. Over the next few months, Legacy will be joined within the Morgans Original portfolio by select properties all individual in nature, but rooted in the heritage of lifestyle hospitality.
Expected to break ground this year, Legacy Hotel & Residences is the latest property to join Accor’s network of luxury and lifestyle properties in Miami. Located in the heart of mega-project Miami Worldcenter (MWC), the second-largest urban development in the U.S., Legacy Hotel & Residences will offer 310 residences sitting atop a 219-room hotel with ground-floor retail in Downtown Miami.
The luxury skyscraper will feature an eight-floor 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, a real estate and development company. “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.”
The agreement allows Legacy to provide its residents with membership to Accor’s Ownership Benefits Program. Guests and members will receive complimentary beach access at other Accor properties, priority reservations, perks and discounts at restaurants and more.
Legacy will be home to downtown’s largest hotel pool deck, spanning a full acre. The deck will blend both luxury and lifestyle amenities, including multiple F&B offerings and poolside service. It will also reveal plans for the tower’s collection of restaurants, casual eateries and bar concepts.
The property launched sales of its branded residences with OneWorld Properties in January 2020. Its signature microLUXE concept offers homeowners a mobile, small living lifestyle with the flexibility to live in or rent their home without any rental restrictions. The microLUXE residences, available for long or short-term rentals, will be managed directly through the hotel. MicroLUXE residences start at US$300,000.
