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.

Previous construction photos of the Fairwind Hotel can be viewed here.

Fairwind Hotel Renovation

Progress is being made at the Fairwind Hotel on Miami Beach since we last looked in April of this year. 

The newly built guest room blocks at the rear of the site have topped out and will include a rooftop amenity deck. 

The restoration of the original Fairwind Building built by architect L. Murray Dixon in 1936 is taking shape, considering two years ago it was just an empty shell.

The property was purchased by The Chetrit Group for $14.5 million in 2012 and was designed by Shulman + Associates.

Construction on the Fairwind Hotel

The Fairwind Hotel is still under construction on Miami Beach since we first looked in October 2014. The hotel located at 1000 Collins Avenue, was purchased in July 2012 by the Chetrit Group for $14.5 million. 

This is what the Fairwind Hotel looked like in 1980 and 2014.

Currently, the Fairwind Hotel is undergoing a renovation and may look slightly different than it did in the top left photo in 1980. The hotel was built in 1936 by famed architect L. Murray Dixon in the classic Art Deco architecture. The building has sat abandoned for a number of years and hopefully the new owners, Chetrit Group, will be able to restore the hotel to its former glory like in the photo below.

Constructed in 1936 by famed architect L. Murry Dixon, The Fairwind Hotel (Originally Fairmont Hotel) is undergoing a renovation after being abandoned for awhile. 

The building was purchased in July 2012 for $14.5 million by Chetrit Group, who are also in the middle of developing the massive Miami River project.

The original redesign of the building called for three additional guest rooms in the back along with an outdoor patio and rooftop decks. 

No word on whether they are keeping with these designs or altering them in any way.
