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.
All the windows and balconies have been installed on the North, South and Four Seasons Hotel since we last looked at the project in May. The roof and exterior of the original Surf Club ballroom by architect Russell Pancoast in the front of the project is almost completely restored. The ballroom will be used as a lobby and reception area.
The Surf Club Four Seasons has two 12 story residences with 150 residential units plus 9 rooftop penthouses. The Four Seasons hotel will have 80 rooms. The project is being developed by Fort Capital and designed by Richard Meier and Partners Architects and Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Fort Capital has submitted plans for a second phase expansion of The Surf Club Four Seasons in Surfside, according to The SFBJ.
Part of the second phase would include demolishing the apartment at 9133 Collins Avenue and replacing it with an 11 story condo with 38 residential units. Fort Capital also wants to renovate the Seaway Villa Condominium at 9149 Collins Avenue with 18 two bedrooms units.

All the cranes have been removed from the site and the windows and balconies have been installed on the North Tower and Hotel. The installation of the windows and balconies on the South Tower will be completed soon.
The restoration of the original Surf Club façade is also taking place.
The project is being developed by Fort Partners and was designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects along with Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design.
