Okan Tower Miami
New Condo Hotel Coming to Downtown

Hilton-Branded Condo Hotel Residences Start in the $300,000s

May 22, 2018

 Hello, Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center.

Quick trivia question for you: What country calls the tulip its official national flower?

A. The Netherlands

B. Canada

C. Turkey

If you guessed A) the Netherlands, you are mistaken. That country has no official flower, despite the pictures you may have seen of Holland’s magnificent tulip fields.

As for B) Canada, that country has chosen maple trees and specifically the maple leaf as its emblem.

The correct answer is C) Turkey. Tulips were originally cultivated in the Ottoman Empire (present-day Turkey) as early as 1000AD before being imported into Holland in the sixteenth century. In fact, the word “tulip” derives from the Turkish word “tulbent,” referring to the Sultan’s turban, which the flower resembled in shape.

My reason for giving you the history of tulips is that today’s featured property is a condo hotel that’s to be built with an iconic look inspired by the tulip. The design is an artistic nod to the national flower of Turkey, where the project’s developer is based. Intrigued? Read on for details.

Okan Tower Miami

The tulip-shaped Okan Tower Miami will rise 70 stories.

The Tulip-Shaped Okan Tower Miami

Okan Tower, soon to be one of the tallest buildings in Miami, will rise 70 stories high and offer unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay and Miami’s impressive skyline.

Okan Tower will have a curved apex and rippling glass facade.

Expected to be of five-star quality, it will be a mixed-use building that features:

  • 293 hotel suites by Hilton Hotels & Resorts
  • 236 condo hotel residences
  • 149 private condo residences with 1-3 bedrooms
  • 4 premium duplex-style penthouse residences
  • 64,000 sq. ft. of Class A office space
  • Numerous amenity and entertainment levels

The developer is Okan Group, founded in 1972 by billionaire Turkish developer Bekir Okan. The company will build the Okan Tower with its own equity and hopes to appeal to international investors “looking for value opportunities.”

The property will be branded a five-star Hilton.

Hilton Amenities

The 236 condo hotel residences at Okan Tower are what I’ll be focusing on today. I can provide information about the traditional condos and penthouse residences upon request.

Owners of the condo hotel residences will be permitted to use their unit a maximum of 150 days per year and then have the option of placing them in Hilton’s rental program for which they’ll receive a portion of the revenue generated, offsetting the cost of ownership.

A Budding Industry

As I mentioned at the top of this write-up, tulips originated in Turkey. The country is now staging a tulip comeback. About three years ago the city of Istanbul launched a massive bulb-planting program and now boasts a tulip blooming for every one of its 12 million inhabitants and has an annual tulip festival.

The city hopes to remind the world that Turkey was the original home of the flower now more usually associated with clogs, cheese and windmills. And Miami will soon have its own tulip on display in the form of Okan Tower.

As always, thank you for your interest in my Property Alerts. Feel free to share them with friends interested in real estate. Again, you can request the Okan Tower Miami data sheet here.

Last bud not least, if there’s a different south Florida property you’re interested in or are seeking real estate investment opportunities, I hope you’ll give me a call. I’m happy to provide all the information you need to make an informed decision.

Have a sunny day!
