A hotel and retail building located in South Beach at 6th & Washington is now going vertical.
The hotel will have 312 rooms, 46,849 square feet of retail and a parking garage with 258 spaces.
Previously on the site was a 1 story building built in 1934 and designed by architect E.L. Robertson. On the corner of 7th and Washington was Friedman's Bakery, which was used to test a new color pallet that would kick off the the Art Deco preservation in Miami Beach. The façade of the building is being saved as part of the new design and construction.
