South Beach’s Berkeley Shore Hotel Renovation Definitely Won’t be Done by the Date on the Construction Fencing

South Beach’s Berkeley Shore Hotel Renovation Definitely Won’t be Done by the Date on the Construction Fencing

August 30, 2016by Sean McCaughan
Maybe there's just too much bold paint and too many wacky interior details to handle, but the historic Art Deco Berkeley Shore Hotel on Collins Avenue near the recently restored Haddon Hall, now just known as 'The Hall' even though the historic 'Haddon' part is still on the sign, is clearly going to miss the opening timeframe of 'Fall 2016' announced on the construction fence liner out front.

Miami Hasn’t Seen a Hurricane in 11 Years, and That Big Beautiful Streak Will Continue

Miami Hasn’t Seen a Hurricane in 11 Years, and That Big Beautiful Streak Will Continue

August 30, 2016by Sean McCaughan
My dad was just telling me the other day that Miami's mini-mini Zika plague one the longer term might serve the same purpose as a good old hurricane, which our subtropical metropolis hasn't seen in ages. Its been 11 years since Wilma hit us and we've been lucky since with placid skies, the occasional tropical shower, and a hardly Superstorm-calibre sideswipe by Sandy, but that's about it. Meanwhile the people keep on coming, as tourists, new residents, and probably a lot of people trying to navigate the sketchy gray area in between. Hurricanes, dad pointed out, when they came would thin out the crowds for a while after, tempering Miami's growth and opening the proverbial release valve a bit. Read More

On Friday, Another New Britto Gallery Opened on Lincoln Road

On Friday, Another New Britto Gallery Opened on Lincoln Road

August 29, 2016by Sean McCaughan
Artist Romero Britto has just plopped down another one of his eponymous art galleries near the east end of Lincoln Road, longitudinally opposite his ever-so-so-slightly older (but still brand new) gallery at Lincoln Road's west end. The new Britto Store occupies the former Ricky's Costumes space, and as of Saturday was still missing its 'Britto' signage. Not that anyone would confuse it for any other artist's gallery. There are now more Britto Galleries on On Lincoln Road than any other retail brand except Swatch, 4D, or Starbucks. Read More

Faena Selling the Twelve Penthouses of the Faena Hotel, Where a Nightclub Used to Be

August 26, 2016by Sean McCaughan
In the middle of the 20th Century, when the Faena Hotel was the Saxony Hotel, a penthouse floor was added that contained a rooftop nightclub, with an exterior non-stop elevator for access from the lobby. When Alan Faena redeveloped the hotel, the decision was made to turn that level, as well as the level below, into luxury residences, and to sell them as The Residences at Faena Hotel Miami Beach.

Anybody Want to Buy The $20 Million Penthouse Jorge Perez Said He Was Going to Retire In Before He ‘Traded Up’ a $2 Million Place In Fort Lauderdale?

August 25, 2016by Sean McCaughan
When the Related Group's One Ocean was under development, company President Jorge Perez declared he would be moving out of his large family home (in Coconut Grove, if I remember correctly) into the premier penthouse of this building. The kids were all grown up, so he and the wife were doing what empty nesters do, looking forward to retirement, and moving into a $20 million condo by the beach. Read More
