Global architecture firm Broadway Malyan has been chosen by Royal Caribbean Cruises to design a $100 million cruise ship terminal in Miami.

The proposal, named “Crown of Miami,” will look like a crown when viewed from the sea and look like an “M”, for Miami, when viewed from the sides. 

“Our aim was to create an iconic destination and arrival experience for passengers, which provides a great experience from curbside to ship in an innovative and modern cruise terminal,” Ian Simpson, director at Broadway Malyan, said in a statement.

 

 

The building is meant to impress arrivals. Open space and large windows will allow visitors to see expansive views of the passing cruise ships and the ocean. At night, the terminal’s façade will illuminate in a blue glow.

In terms of sustainability, the facility will feature energy-efficient glazing, rainwater collection systems for cooling and irrigation, and aluminium fins for ventilation in the parking structure. 

The is the first time Broadway Malyan has been appointed for a project in the United States. The firm says that members of the staff will be based in Miami and supported by the Singapore studio.

Construction is expected to begin in early 2017, and the terminal will be operational by late 2018.
