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.

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.

A New Look For Ocean Drive?

Previously, city officials debated whether to close Ocean Drive off for cars, and even having rainbow colored signage.

Architect Allan Shulman presented to Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board a proposal that would expand the pedestrian sidewalks and raise the street level to the sidewalks, according to The Next Miami.

Several patterns for the road were presented that would make the road stand out.
