US: SH Hotels & Resorts, an affiliate of Starwood Capital Group, has announced it will debut the brand in the United States with its first location in Miami opening 2023.
Treehouse Brickell, in downtown Miami, will be designed in collaboration with Rockwell Group and SHoP Architects.
JDS Development Group, an acquisition, development and construction firm, will lead development of the property.
The 62-storey, 191-room property will incorporate environmental design strategies and feature repurposed materials and found objects, like reclaimed flooring and wooden beams. Energy and water efficiencies will be included, for example rainwater harvesting and electric car recharging stations.
Hotel amenities include two rooftop pools with several bar options. The main dining area will provide an indoor/outdoor experience with a designated terrace and private bar.
An events space will occupy the 25th floor and will include san outdoor area with vegetation throughout.
“Downtown Miami, Brickell is the perfect place for a Treehouse. Like its London counterpart, Treehouse Brickell will be as much a destination for travellers as a local hangout, and will introduce a new kind of thoughtful, fun and imaginative hospitality experience to the area,” said Starwood Capital Group Chairman and CEO Barry Sternlicht.
“We are proud to partner with industry trailblazer Barry Sternlicht to create a Treehouse at 1 Southside Park,” said Michael Stern, founder and CEO of JDS Development Group. “Barry continually raises the bar for exceptional experiences in hospitality, and our location will provide the perfect environment to welcome Treehouse to Brickell, Miami, and celebrate the hotel’s first US location.”
