This 410,000 square foot complex located on the northern end of the historic district of Miami Beach combines hotel, condominium, and retail uses on its 2.27-acre oceanfront site. Two main structures occupy the site. The existing 1936-1938 hotel, fronting Collins Avenue, built as the Dempsey Vanderbilt, is restored to its original Art Deco exterior. Its 80 reconfigured guestrooms and all public spaces and service areas are fully renovated. A new 40-story tower will be built on the eastern portion of the parcel. The 8-story podium, detailed to respect the scale and spirit of the context, contains the lobby, service, and parking areas. The two-story base of the 27-story residential component houses the exercise rooms, spa, meeting rooms, and exterior terraces. The tower plate is articulated to express the programmatic dichotomy – the western end, facing the city, contains condominium-hotel suites, while the eastern end facing the ocean contains large condominium units with generous balconies. A lushly landscaped resort-style pool and cabana area lead from the existing hotel down to the beach.
