JMH Development Launches 235-Room Hotel Project at the heart of Miami Beach


JMH Development develops the project in conjunction with Madden Real Estate Ventures as an adaptive re-use of the historically significant Motel Ankara. A new eight-story tower will be constructed as well. Aloft South Beach comes in as the first hotel to be constructed anew in South Beach since the year 2009, with significantly spacious rooms.

The project will open up the Aloft South Beach and present a waterfront location that accesses the Lake Pancoast and the magnificent Collins Canal wrapping around the property.

The area is populated with numerous art galleries, night clubs, boutiques, restaurants, and the Bass Museum of Art.


Guests can enjoy a roof deck lounge, outdoor pool, a 24-hour fitness center and flexible meeting space of over 200 square feet, ideal for social gatherings as well as business meetings.
