Abae, a Boutique Apartment-Hotel Coming to West Avenue, is Almost Finished
Construction at the Abae Hotel South Beach, a new boutique apartment-hotel at 1215 West Avenue, is wrapping up just in time for its planned summer 2016 opening, as posted on its teaser website. Its the latest in a wave of new hotels that have opened within the last couple years along the West Avenue and nearby Bay Road, bringing a bit more activity to what has always been one of the quieter, more residential, quarters of South Beach.
The Abae follows hotels like the Gaythering Hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn, and even the slightly older Mondrian, the last of which is barely a few blocks away. Don’t expect too much action though. The Abae is the third hotel/residential project to come out of local developer/hotelier Eskape Collection, and already has the secluded, sanctuary-vibe of its two siblings, 1818 Meridian Avenue, a boutique hotel, and 6080 Collins Avenue, a condo hotel, both also on Miami Beach.
