Miami Riverbridge is a new mixed-use development proposed for the site of the Hyatt Regency Miami and the James L. Knight Center in Downtown Miami. The location is the nexus between the Central Business District and Brickell Financial District, and it sits at a vital entry point for many people entering and visiting the urban core.

Miami Riverbridge will optimize the current site by combining hotel and meeting space, shops, restaurants and entertainment on the Riverwalk and and adding a significant number of rental residential apartments as demand for housing in Downtown Miami soars.


Public Space and Riverfront Plaza

The plan proposes nearly 500 feet of improved Riverwalk for strolling, exercising and family-friendly dining while inviting Miamians to relax and watch the flow of people, water and boats.

  • The plan makes it easy to get from SE 2nd Avenue to the riverfront through a welcoming public walkway that leads to green space, riverfront dining and shops, and a much-enhanced Riverwalk.
  • The planned Riverfront Plaza will provide a long-awaited connection to Biscayne Bay and Bayfront Park to the east, as well as the Metromover’s Riverwalk station to the west.
  • New seating, shade and trees will make Miamians comfortable all year round.
  • An improved pedestrian bridge will offer residents, guests, and meeting attendees direct and covered connectivity to the Metromover’s Knight Center Station.
  • Four zones within the Miami Riverbridge site will be designated for bike parking.
  • Further activation of a ferry dock currently used by a ferry service between Downtown Miami and Miami Beach is currently being studied.

Entertainment and Activities

The new public space is designed to be lively and inviting for Miami residents and families to enjoy.

  • Frequent entertainment and activities—from live music to activities for all ages, outdoor fitness classes and farmers’ markets—will make the riverfront a gathering place and destination for all.

Hyatt Regency Miami

The new Hyatt Regency Miami will be a North American flagship for the brand and become a destination for visitors and conference-goers from North, Central and South America.

  • The new Hyatt Regency Miami will offer a combination of Miami’s best location and facilities.
  • Home to 615 hotel rooms, the hotel will feature Hyatt’s most innovative design and technology, riverfront dining and meeting spaces.
  • The new hotel’s 264 Hyatt-branded serviced apartments, a first on the site, will make longer-term stays accessible.

Meeting Space

Miami has outgrown the former James L. Knight Center, which has hosted countless events over the years. The planned 200,000 square feet of Class A meeting space in the new Hyatt Regency Miami represents 50% more space for world-class events. And with the addition of spacious and inviting outdoor terraces accessible from the meeting rooms, there’ll be even more space and great views for every event. The new meeting and event space is designed for the business and social events of the future, with ample natural light, flexible configurations and cutting-edge technology that will make gatherings as efficient as they are memorable.



Two of the three towers of Miami Riverbridge will be linked 700 feet above the street by a spectacular glassed-in Skybridge that will be home to a destination restaurant and lounge. It’ll be the perfect place for special occasions and celebrations.



More than 120,000 people now call Downtown Miami home, and the city is attracting newcomers every day. This underscores the need to build additional quality apartments to meet the current and future demand for housing. Miami Riverbridge is bringing some 1,500 new rental apartments to the neighborhood.


Improved Traffic Flows

The development includes millions of dollars of investment in roadway improvements to ease access on SE 2nd Avenue and Brickell Avenue.
