The Deauville Beach Resort, that postwar resort hotel most famously known as the place where the Beatles stayed (and appeared on the Ed Sullivan show) when they came to Miami Beach on their first U.S. visit, is getting a whole lot bigger. The 1957 hotel was designed by iconic Miami Beach architect Melvin Grossman. The hotel's owners are seeking approval for changes to a previously planned, but never built, 21 story tower to rise above the hotel's current ballroom and pool area, "partial demolition, partial reconstruction, alteration, renovation, and rehabilitation," and a twelve unit rooftop addition.
From the HPB's November 20th agenda:
HPB File No. 1844, 6701 Collins Avenue – Deauville Beach Resort. The applicant, Deauville Associates, LLC., is requesting modifications to a previously issued Certificate of Appropriateness for the for the partial demolition, partial reconstruction, alteration, renovation and rehabilitation of an existing hotel complex, as well as the construction of a new 21-story residential structure. Specifically, the applicant is requesting revisions to the previously approved new residential building, modification of the south retail portion of the property allow for additional parking and a 12-unit rooftop addition above the existing Deauville Hotel.
The submission will go before the Miami Beach HP Board Nov. 20th, but we're still hunting for renderings. If you've got any clues, by all means send them into the tip line, thanks!
