The NEW Surf Club Condominium & Hotel Resort in Surfside, Miami Beach officially broken ground in March 2014, for the restoration and renovations of the original historic oceanfront Surfside Surf Club property with the addition of 2 luxury oceanfront condominium towers and a luxury hotel managed by the Four Seasons.
The historic and iconic Miami Beach Surf Club in Surfside was built in 1929 and designed by archtect Russell Pancoast. This previously private club sits on 6 acres on the ocean side with 815 feet of oceanfront and just under 3 acres on the west side of Collins Ave. Over the last 80+ years, the membership and visitors to the Surf Club in Surfside, Miami Beach is a long list of who’s who of the elite and many world famous figures.
As the original Miami Beach Surf Club has long been designated as a historic landmark, the additional development on the property will incorporate the original building with it’s planned restoration and renovation, returning the existing Surf Club to it’s original splendor. The newly restored club will also be upgraded with many new luxury features and amenities. As Surfside also has a strict 12-story height limit, the additional condominium towers and condo / hotel property will not tower over the existing property (as many other oceanfront hi-rises outside of Surfside can), but are designed to keep the original Surf Club as the center focal point for the new development.
The change to the site is still dramatic, with three 12-story glass towers flanking the restored 1929 Russell Pancoast-designed club on either side. Current developer diagrams of the lot shows 3 new towers – two 12-story sweeping oceanfront towers to the north and south of the original Surf Club offering luxury condominium residences and select penthouse homes only. These 2 condominium towers will be home to just 150 residences. Each Surf Club condominium tower will feature it’s own gym and spa, residents only pool and much more…
A third smaller Four Seasons Surf Club hotel only tower in the center of the oceanfront property will be home to an 80 unit luxury hotel managed and serviced by the Four Seasons.. The original Surf Club building, situated in the center of the property has been planned (pending) to also include a number of newly designed ultra-luxury hotel units. The Surf Club’s remaining 2 acres across the street on the west side of Collins Ave. will feature an additional parking structure and new retail spaces bringing great shopping and specialty shops mere steps from the Surf Club residents homes.
With almost fifty unique floor plan configurations within the 150 condominium residences and penthouse homes at The Surf Club condominium residences. All considerations have been taken into account with the residences being meticulously designed to anticipate the needs of virtually any lifestyle. Ranging in size from 1,200 square feet to 8,000 square feet, with floor-to-ceiling glass “walls” and up to 20-foot ceiling heights, The Surf Club residences also feature expansive balconies up to 12-foot deep that create outdoor living rooms separated from the interior spaces by the broad floor-to ceiling sliding glass doors.
The center oceanfront Four Seasons Surf Club tower will feature a five-star condominium hotel and spa, managed by the Four Seasons. The hotel section will also feature a specialty food store, a new cabana section – similar to the original curving cabana section of the original Surf Club – which will be built in front of the southern tower. At least three oceanfront pools are featured on and around the club’s ocean frontage, with two of those pools for the exclusive use of the residents. A number of long lawns provide beautiful ocean view vistas through the highly landscaped grounds and recreated sand dunes. Two large driveways will lead to each of the twin oceanfront towers, with the Surf Club’s original arrival drive still at the center of the property.
