A Miami-based group appears to be considering development of a WoodSpring Suites hotel near the Bentley dealership planned along Bonneval Road.

Gold Coast Premier Properties is indicated in city documents as the developer of a proposed 122-room, four-story hotel on 2.19 acres along Bonneval Road.

The city issued a mobility fee calculation certificate and a conditional capacity availability statement for the 49,250-square-foot project, which is off Butler Boulevard near Interstate 95.

It calculated a fee of $223,726 to mitigate the traffic impact.

The property is owned by Miami-based MNAR - Real Estate Holdings LLC, whose manager is Mario Murgado, the Bentley dealer. England-Thims & Miller Inc. is the civil engineer.

Murgado, president and CEO of Miami-based Brickell Motors and Miami Automotive Retail Inc., bought a 7.5-acre site in February, where he intends to develop the dealership.

He also bought a 1.5-acre site next to it.

England-Thims & Miller Inc. is the civil engineer.
