The Fairwind Hotel is getting closer to completion, but no timetable has been set for the opening.
The 28,5000 square foot lot and three buildings were purchased for $14.5 million in 2012 by The Chetrit Group and renovations began in the Fall of 2014. The new designs by Shulman + Associates has the restoration of the existing three buildings and a new five story building at the rear of the property. There will be a swimming pool on the roof of the new building, plus a courtyard with a water fountain at the front. An underground bar, 15 feet below sea level will open in the bottom of the new building.
The original two structures were built in 1936 by architect L. Murray Dixon and the third building was later built in 1955.
