40-Year-Old South Beach Condo Building Gets Face Lift With Hurricane Glass

A 40-year-old South Beach condo building is proving that replacing glass windows and doors can dramatically improve the appearance of a building.

These photos show how the 252-unit Mirasol at 2655 Collins Avenue, built in 1975, is getting a drastic face lift thanks to the new glass.

In addition to the aesthetic improvements, the building will also likely benefit from energy savings and better hurricane protection .
