Miami National Bank Building

Since 2011 Stambul LLC has been involved  in the Renovation of the "Miami National Bank Building" which will be renovated  to become  "The Langford Hotel", designed to preserve  its history, providing the guest the feeling that it the hotel has been in operation since the original completion of the building.

Built in 1925 represents an example of the Commercial style of architecture in Downtown Miami, with elements of the Neo- Classical mode and characteristics of a popular architectural trend of the 1920s in South Florida

The façade of the building serves as a visual reminder of Miami’s Boom years, when architects in the recently established metropolis were seeking a design identity through the utilization of easily recognizable architectural styles. (Sara E Eaton [1])

The Hotel will include 125 rooms and one Presidential Suite, conferences rooms, a restaurant and a roof-top Bar, all designed to meet the stylish concept and the 1925’s style.
