A Fresh Approach at DCOTA:

A renovation of the former Sheraton at the Design Center of the Americas, more commonly known by the acronym DCOTA, this ongoing project is being developed by Charles Cohen of The Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation of New York. The hotel is part of a 40-acre, 800,000 square-foot design and office campus. Partnering with Starwood, the 245-key hotel will now be known as Le Méridien, and boasts a completely smoke-free environment. Features include computer work stations in the lobby, business center, multiple meeting rooms, lobby lounge, and Toro, a Latin Gastro Bar, offering casual dining in an atrium setting. Designed by the award-winning architectural firm Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates of Coral Gables, the interiors will be provided by Dash Design of Coconut Grove.

“Since Coastal has come onboard to manage our Hotel Renovation project, they have already proved to be a resourceful, agile partner. We have full confidence in their ability to execute quickly and efficiently, while keeping the meticulous Le Méridien brand standards top of mind. Coastal’s expertise and attention to detail will prove instrumental as we launch an outstanding new luxury property.”
