Miami, Nov. 8, 2021 – JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group announced today that it closed the sale of the Conrad Miami, a 203-key, recently renovated hotel in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood.

JLL represented the seller, a joint venture consisting of Mast Capital and Angelo Gordon. A partnership between Electra America and Korman Companies purchased the hotel with plans to rebrand the property to an AKA.

Conrad Miami recently underwent a $14.5 million state-of-the-art renovation to its guestrooms, public areas, and food and beverage outlets. The property offers 203 traditional guest rooms and an additional 20 rooms in a rental management program. Hotel amenities include the Nativo Kitchen and Bar, Sky Pool Bar, the Spa at Conrad Miami, a rooftop lap pool, fitness center and rooftop tennis courts.

Located at 1395 Brickell Ave. the Conrad Miami is positioned in the heart of Miami’s financial district. The immediate area surrounding the hotel boasts top financial institutions, luxury residential condos, high-end retail and restaurants, and a variety of arts and entertainment offerings. The hotel has immediate access to the Financial District Metromover station and is convenient to Interstate 95 providing access to the entire Miami metro.

The JLL Hotels & Hospitality team representing the seller was led by Managing Director Andrew Dickey, as well as Senior Managing Director Gregory Rumpel and Vice President Maciej Polek.

”The seller along with Hilton and HEI Hotels & Resorts led the property through extensive renovation resulting in prime market positioning to take advantage of the growth in Miami. Furthermore, the Downtown and Brickell submarkets are leading the way in Miami, largely due to the Wall Street movement to Miami in the financial sector, which directly impacts assets like the Conrad Miami,” said Dickey.

JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group has completed more transactions than any other hotels and hospitality real estate advisor over the last five years, totaling $83 billion worldwide. The group’s 350-strong global team in over 20 countries also closed more than 7,350 advisory, valuation and asset management assignments.
