The iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach will reveal one of the most significant expansions in its seven-decade history with the opening of the all-new Coastal Convention Center in Q4 2024.

Coinciding with the fabled beachfront resort’s 70th year, the addition will span five stories and 45,000 sf, with meeting and event spaces ranging from personal and intimate to grand and large scale and an overall look reflecting the architectural legacy of its original designer, Morris Lapidus.

“The Coastal Convention Center will be a jewel in the crown of Fontainebleau Miami
Beach and also this city’s social and tourism sector, a new, magnificent home for
business and leisure events along the oceanfront,” says Fontainebleau Development
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Soffer in a media announcement. “This is the next evolution of our brand, further solidifying our role as a global hospitality leader, and we look forward to showing guests the world-class features and unparalleled service that are synonymous with the name ‘Fontainebleau.’”

The Coastal Convention Center will include a 16,500-sf divisible ballroom with an outdoor terrace; a 9,500-sf junior ballroom; 15 total meeting rooms; and 15,000 square feet of pre-function space. Accenting the entire facility will be hints of the property’s legacy of luxury, with decorative art and murals by Kevin Barry Art Advisory and Jean-Paul Philippe throughout.

Other standout features include a grand staircase that pays homage to Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s “Stairway to Nowhere;” floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe meeting rooms in natural light; outdoor, street-level meeting space; LED walls and wayfinders; and a 7,000-sf, flexible Tides Rooftop Terrace with scenic ocean views.

With sustainability a top priority, the Coastal Convention Center is being constructed to
meet LEED certification standards, including features such as insulated glass to control
internal temperatures and reduce energy use, and a rainwater collection and recycling
system to increase water efficiency.
