Touring the Fasano Hotel & Residences Model Unit & Sales Center
The historic Shore Club has had a few major incarnations since it was built over 50 years ago. Having been managed by Morgans Hotels in recent years, the hotel is officially closing later this year to be converted into the first Fasano-branded hotel in the United States, the Fasano Hotel & Residences Miami Beach.
The renovation, although very extensive, will preserve the exterior facades of the original art deco and midcentury structures on the site, as well as the Shore Club’s lobby. Practically everything else, including the 1990s main tower, is being transformed by architect Issy Winfield, to a contemporary style with a subtle Brazilian modernist aesthetic. The sales center and model unit both show off that modern look, with a design that’s bathed in whites and creams. As the sales center shows, the 17 remaining units (prices and details below) come with kitchens and bathrooms dripping with two kinds of Italian marble, and blonde wooden floors. Prices begin at $940,000.
