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.

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.
