Dezer May Be Planning 749-Foot Tower To Replace Thunderbird In Sunny Isles

Dezer May Be Planning 749-Foot Tower To Replace Thunderbird In Sunny Isles

Gil Dezer may already be working on his next development in Sunny Isles, taller than anything he has built so far.

Yesterday, an application was submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration to build a tower at 18401 Collins Avenue, agency records show.

According to the application, the tower will rise 741 feet above ground, or 749 feet above sea level. No tower in Sunny Isles has yet surpassed the 649-foot mark, but Estates at Acqualina has asked for approval to build two towers at 749 feet.

Days Hotel by Wyndham Thunderbird Beach Resort is currently operating at the site, with Dezer Hotel Management Ltd listed as the owner.

 

 

 

 

The new tower would rise just south of the 649-foot Turnberry Ocean Club and the 649-foot Porsche Design Tower, surpassing each by about 100 feet:

Does it cost you anything? If some developers wants to waste his money on another project like this, I don’t care, it doesn’t take one dime out of my pocket.

Yes, two or three towers pass the 649ft mark will give Sunny Isles skyline some variation that it needs.

If this was Miami or Miami Beach, NIMBYs would try and kill it by calling it “MiMo” and historic as an unworthy, auto-centric mid-century motel.
