Lightstone Celebrates Topping Out of Moxy South Beach

USA, Miami, Florida. October 03, 2019

National real estate investor and developer Lightstone announced today the topping out of construction at Moxy South Beach, which is scheduled to open in Fall 2020. The 202-key, eight-story hotel, located at 915 Washington Ave. marks Lightstone's fourth Moxy Hotel development in partnership with Marriott and the company's first Moxy property outside of New York.

With interiors designed by Rockwell Group and architecture designed by Kobi Karp, Moxy South Beach will span 78,000 gross square feet. Its lobby will feature an outdoor courtyard that threads together a series of spaces, including a restaurant; all-day bar; Cuban-themed bodega offering stylish beach accessories; and a co-working lounge which transitions into meeting studios. The second floor will feature a 72-foot pool, fitness center, and indoor/outdoor bar and café. The rooftop offers breathtaking views of Miami Beach, a large shallow pool to cool off in, and a screening area. Moxy South Beach will offer multiple vibes, all under one roof. Local DJs and live music will activate the lobby bar and pool area. Additionally, fitness partners will host morning rooftop workouts for the complimentary #SweatAtMoxy wellness series.

"We're excited to be bringing Moxy to Miami on the heels of successful openings at Moxy Times Square and Moxy Chelsea," said Mitchell Hochberg, president of Lightstone. "We're confident that the Moxy ethos will resonate with both the Miami traveler and local residents."

Moxy South Beach adds to Lightstone's growing hotel development portfolio, which includes over 1,500 Moxy hotel rooms in New York City, including the 612-room property in Times Square that opened in the Fall of 2017, a 349-room Moxy Hotel in Chelsea, and the upcoming Moxy East Village, a 286-key hotel opening in September 2019. The company is developing a total of seven Moxy properties in New York, Miami, and Downtown Los Angeles.

G.T. McDonald Enterprises is serving as construction manager on the project, and the hotel will be operated by Urgo Hotels & Resorts.

Revenue Management: Maximizing Profit

Hotel Revenue Management continues to evolve at a blistering pace. Driven by technological innovation and new distribution channels, there are some dynamic opportunities for expansion in this fast-growing field. The technology is primarily designed to help revenue managers further refine their operations and pricing models to maximize hotel profit. For example, hotels can't be all things to all people, so a key strategy is to precisely identify their target audience. By employing geo-targeting techniques and analyzing behavior such as previous bookings, on-property purchases and online shopping practices, there is an increased capability to define guest demographics. By segmenting customers in more specific ways, hotels are able to create more personalized experiences which, in turn, allow managers to optimize their room rates. It is also an effective way to fulfill the unique needs and preferences of the individual. Another methodology is to consistently monitor the competition's pricing strategies. There are software tools that analyze a competitor's current rates, and then allow a hotel to make its own pricing adjustments. It is also a useful means to conduct forecasting models. Other technologies that are being integrated into a revenue manager's toolkit include Artificial Intelligence in the form of automated algorithms, and Voice Recognition (VR) for data inquiries, rate changes, and booking behavior. Predictive and analytic software programs are also being leveraged to provide more forward-looking data, instead of the usual reliance on historical performance. These metrics allow managers to be more proactive - rather than reactive - with their revenue strategy. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
