This is the Monte Carlo, on Collins Avenue and 65th Street. It - or more precisely, a hotel somewhat similar to it - was built on this site in 1948 by architect Roy France, one of the masters of hotel architecture on Miami Beach. At some point between then and now the hotel was demolished and now it's being replaced with something new. Only, the something new - a condo tower - looks kinda like the old hotel. Well, that's the whole point. This is historic preservation, err, recreation, duplication, whatever, by architect Luis Revuelta in action. Oh, and as of a week ago, it looks like construction has hit the 5th floor.
