Aloft Hotel

Davie, FL

Located on a 3.15-acre site at Indian Trace and I-75, nestled between three municipalities, the Aloft Hotel presented multiple challenges: triangular-shaped lot, wetland mitigation, and zoning and permitting processes requiring approval from four distinct administrative agencies. Relying on SRS’s outstanding reputation in government relations, Starwood and the developer were confident the five-story, 78,394 SF hotel would be streamlined from permitting through construction completion. Site plan approval and coordination for building permit were sought and granted by the Town of Davie, access easement by Weston, and water services by Sunrise. A Broward County plat amendment is the final stage of authorization. The wetlands lot was mitigated by a land swap and transformed from swamp to desirable purpose, including a 57,880 SF lake that offers natural beauty, aquatic life refuge, as well as storm drainage.

The hotel is configured in a linear shape, with fitness center, swimming pool, and lakeside and outdoor amenities at one end. The reception center, guest workspace, and restaurant are at the other end. Known for its iconic casual and relaxed social, dining, and entertainment spaces, the Aloft offers comfortable, intimate, and colorfully refreshing interiors. The four upper floors, at 14,000 SF each, feature a total of 136 rooms and suites.
