In this short note, I present a generalization of a set of static D-dimensional (D >= 3) Lifshitz black holes, which are solutions of the gravitational model obtained by amending the cosmological Einstein theory with the addition of only the curvature-scalar-squared term and that are described by two parameters, to a more general class of exact, analytic solutions that involves an additional parameter which now renders them stationary. In the special D = 3 and the dynamical exponent z = 1 cases, the parameters can be adjusted so that the solution becomes identical to the celebrated BTZ black hole metric.
