MIAMI, Oct. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- sbe, the Los Angeles-based leading lifestyle hospitality company that develops, manages and operates award-winning hospitality venues, announced today the opening of SLS Brickell, its second SLS Miami hotel. The stunning property marks sbe's first hotel and residence project in partnership with Related Group. The formidable talents of sbe Founder and CEO, Sam Nazarian, The Related Group founder and Chairman Jorge Perez, Arquitectonica co-founding Principal Bernardo Fort-Brescia and designer Philippe Starck, have joined together to present a property poised to become a Miami landmark hotel, set in the heart of the city's rapidly transforming Brickell neighborhood.
"sbe is proud to unveil our first SLS Hotel & Residences with Related and look forward to the addition of sister property, SLS LUX Brickell and expanding our South Florida portfolio further together with Hyde Midtown and Hyde Beach House," said Nazarian. "SLS has created a new paradigm in the luxury hotel experience that resonates with a global audience. We already offer the ultimate South Beach experience with SLS South Beach and are now bringing our unique brand downtown. SLS Brickell epitomizes what we stand for; an uncompromising, yet modern approach to luxury, infused with playfulness, spirit, creativity and world-class cuisine and design."
The prominent Arquitectonica designed, 55-story tower takes its cue from the lively movement of Brickell with a faceted bas relief pattern aiming to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. The project encompasses 124 striking Philippe Starck-appointed SLS hotel rooms and suites and 450 SLS-branded condo residences. Boasting an enviable position on South Miami Avenue, SLS Brickell is just steps from Downtown Miami and the Miami Design District, as well as an array of world-class shopping, fine dining and entertainment options. Spanning an impressive acre of amenities, SLS Brickell is a true urban oasis that will cater to business guests, leisure travelers and Miami locals alike. Infused with art, the property offers a sensory feast, from the arresting vision of Markus Linnenbrink's mural to the striking lobby sculpture by Bernardi Roig.
"SLS Hotel & Residences Brickell is envisioned as a sophisticated and contemporary urban paradise, and serves a pivotal role in reshaping Miami's financial district with tremendous culture and hospitality," said Perez. "I'm extremely pleased with our debut SLS branded residences and excited for our partnership with sbe to grow with forthcoming ventures, including SLS LUX Puerto Madero in my hometown of Buenos Aires."
The property features premier culinary options from two James Beard Award-winning chefs: SLS Culinary Director, Chef José Andrés and Chef Michael Schwartz. Alongside the property's October 21st unveiling, Chef Michael Schwartz will launch his first Italian concept with Fi'lia, featuring fresh ingredients from the hearth and the simplicity of handmade artisanal breads and pasta. Shortly after, Chef José Andrés will present Bazaar Mar, his latest creative culinary concept celebrating the bounty of the oceans, with a seasonal emphasis on Miami and the Caribbean. Bazaar Mar will serve as Jose Andrés' second Miami restaurant and sixth project with sbe. Jose Andrés will also oversee food and beverage for the property's in-room dining, mezzanine and pool bar.
In addition to its dynamic dining options, SLS Brickell hosts an unprecedented range of 24-hour lifestyle amenities, including concierge services, valet parking, in-room dining, babysitting services and a BMW-7 series house car available for transport within a three-mile radius. A state-of-the-art Fitness Center and the exclusive Ciel Spa will cater to guests' wellness and fitness needs.
Arash Azarbarzin, President, sbe Hotel Group, added: "It's very exciting to see sbe's vision for SLS-branded residences come to fruition with this venture. The immediate sale of the residences highlights the demand for the fully-integrated hospitality experience we are known for."

Optional services include housekeeping, personal training, spa treatments, childcare, catering, BMW transportation, laundry and dry cleaning, grocery shopping, pet services, IT support and 'while you're away' services, amongst others, extending to securing preferred theater and event tickets.

Further reflecting the brand's commitment to fulfilling guests' every desire, SLS Brickell will serve as an urban retreat, providing access to three pools and a hot and cold plunge, all located on the sprawling pool deck where alfresco dining and eight private cabanas will be available. Guests and residents will also have the exclusive opportunity to take advantage of complimentary VIP Beach access at SLS's stunning oceanfront property, SLS South Beach.
