In Hollywood, Block 40 Has Reached Level 17 And Is Nearly Topped Off (Photos)

Hollywood’s Block 40 tower continues to rise and is nearly topped off.

The building has now reached level 17 of construction, according to an Instagram post from contractor Cavossa Management.

Block 40 will include 166 apartments and a 103-room Hilton Garden Inn in a 19-story tower.

It is being built on the site of the Great Southern Hotel, which was built by city founder Joseph W. Young in 1924. The hotel closed in 1991.

A portion of the the historic hotel’s interiors and northern and western walls will be integrated into the new project, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Chip Abele is the developer.

Adache Group is the architect.

the train line is 1/2 mile west. hard to re-reoute tracks. yet another station is possible in Hollywood, requires some forward thinking.

Glad to see they preserved the old façade at street level.

Agreed, 2500 Biscayne/Wynwood Bay should have been something like this, but instead completely dismembered the historic Wolpert Apartments for a box with ugly asymmetrical balconies.

They didn’t preserve it, they’re building a replica

I think that might be a safer option and bring some flexibility to the project

Nice looking building, but after you drive a few blocks south on federal, it turns into a very undesirable area.

Train station yes, tunnel Federal Highway under the circle Yes. Just like it goes under the New River at Los Olas in Ft Lauderdale. (no circling around hoping not to get hit by whacky race drivers).

Downtown Hollywood is changing fast, but it is a shame that this building is garbage. I hope BTI does something worthy at the old Publix.

It’s all spanish, with the loudest spanish music trying to drown out everyone else. No thanks, Las Olas is so much classier, up scale shops and a sophisticated clientel.
