Luxury Restroom Trailers for Miami’s Newest Downtown Attraction

Posted on June 16, 2018 by Jenn Piorkowski in Outdoor Events

When you think about the nightlife in downtown Miami, luxury restroom trailers probably aren’t the first thing that springs to mind. Miami is known for its world-class nightclubs, international food scene, and the over-the-top opulence of South Beach. But with the opening of Miami’s newest downtown event venue last fall – PRT’s luxury restroom trailers are now a permanent fixture in The Magic City.

With the swamps of the Everglades National Park to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east – Miami is a city surrounded by water. To control drainage and flooding in the watery region, a vast network of man-made canals was constructed in the early 1900s. Today those canals crisscross the entire metropolitan area – with many of them draining directly into the Miami River, which cuts straight through the heart of downtown Miami.

While parts of the river banks are occupied by well-manicured city parks and private estates, other parts have not attracted much investment. Some stretches host unsightly industrial loading and storage operations, while others remain completely undeveloped and are not maintained at all. Our new client recognized a glaring opportunity along the undeveloped river banks, and set out to convert a stretch of unmaintained land into a beautiful and bustling downtown event venue.

Food and Fun in the Famous Miami Nights

The new venue is a 30,000-square foot open-air space that sprawls along the historic river bank and hosts a myriad of activities for the entertainment of Miami’s citizens and visiting tourists.  It has quickly become an important center for the city’s rich culinary and cultural identity – and we’re proud that our luxury restroom trailers have helped to make it all possible.

The space includes five retail huts, three bars, and a lot where Miami’s hottest food trucks keep a rotating schedule – so that there is always something fresh and exciting for adventurous eaters.  One of the city’s most famous fish markets hosts a market stall and a raw seafood bar onsite. And there is an extensive layout of wooden decks and open dining areas for people to relax with friends and enjoy their food and beverages together.

For special events, the venue hosts a curated culinary series featuring several of Miami’s most acclaimed chefs.  Some of the city’s hottest local performing artists make regular appearances on the weekends. And there is a dedicated private space that can be reserved by individuals or groups for networking events, private parties, receptions, and more.

Creating an Exceptional Experience with Luxury Restroom Trailers

When the venue’s management reached out to PRT, they were searching for a way to provide upscale restroom accommodations for the huge crowds they were anticipating.  The extensive permitting process to construct permanent restrooms on the river banks would have severely delayed their opening date – so they were seeking a solution that would provide the same level of comfort while avoiding the red tape and engineering fees associated with a permanent structure.  Our luxury restroom trailers were the perfect solution, and we were happy to help the venue bring their vision to life.

We helped the management quantify their capacity requirements, and we helped them navigate their options for specifying and customizing their new luxury restroom trailers.  The units that they eventually selected are a perfect blend of comfort and convenience – with all the amenities that you would expect in a permanent brick and mortar restroom.

Commercial Capacity and High-End Luxury in One Convenient Package

We delivered three 10-station units from our Calypso Series of luxury restroom trailers last fall, in time for the venue’s grand opening.  Each trailer is divided into two dedicated suites – one for men and one for women.  Inside the women’s suite there are five private toilet stalls and a large vanity with double sinks.  The men’s suite features two private stalls, three wall-mounted urinals with privacy dividers, and two single sink vanities.

The interior of both suites is as comfortable and luxurious as any traditional restroom.  The floors feature designer wood-grain vinyl, and the walls are made with complementary beige fiberglass panels.  The vanities and all trim are a crisp white – and the full-length privacy doors on all stalls are a stark black that ties in the black granite-look solid surface countertops.  Soft interior lighting is provided by recessed can lights throughout both suites.

Each of the vanities is paired with a large shatterproof glass mirror.  The metered sinks provide hot water for hand washing thanks to an on-demand hot water heater located in the trailer’s mechanical room.  And liquid soap dispensers, paper towel dispensers, and in-counter waste baskets are pre-installed standard on all our luxury restroom trailers.

High-Tech Luxury Restroom Trailers for Minimal Maintenance

The units we delivered to Miami all included PRT’s signature smartphone application – the Smarter Restrooms app.  With Smarter Restrooms, maintenance and upkeep are kept to a minimum – ensuring that you only travel to service your restrooms when it is absolutely necessary.

The app runs on any standard Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, and it allows you to control most of the trailer’s critical functions remotely from your device.  You can lock the trailer, monitor the tank level of all fresh water and waste water tanks, and switch the lights on or off with the swipe of a finger. The app also gives you remote control of the trailer’s thermostat – so that you can monitor the interior temperature and make adjustments without traveling to change the temperature in person.

Our luxury restroom trailers have roof-mounted low-profile air conditioners that keep the inside temperature cool and comfortable – even in the hottest tropical environments.  Electric heat strips are integrated into the trailers interior trim to provide warmth in cool weather. Because the venue in Miami needed to keep their restrooms operation all year round – they opted to upgrade to our 4-season package, which adds additional insulation and a ducted liquid propane-powered furnace for comfortable use in cold winter temperatures.
