Originally opened in 1930 and founded by Harvey Firestone, the Surf Club was designed by architect Russell Pancoast as a Mediterranean style villa located in Surfside, Florida. Over the years it was attended by the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra.
The property was purchased by Fort Capital in 2012 and transformed into three glass towers surrounded by the original restored clubhouse on 9 acres of property. There are two 12 story residential towers, the North Tower and South Tower, plus a Four Seasons Hotel with 80 rooms. The North Tower is expected to open next month while the South Tower is expected to open in sometime in August/September. The Four Seasons Hotel officially opened in March of this year.
The Surf Club Four Seasons Hotel and Residences was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Richard Meier in collaboration with Kobi Karp, with interiors by Joseph Dirand. The Surf Club Four Seasons Hotel and Residences was created to maximize the views of the ocean to the East and the city views to the West. The new towers were created to make a harmonizing blend with the existing Surf Club building.
