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.

There are two sets of tracks. One set is two blocks west of the Great Southern, with freight trains going right through downtown Hollywood, adjacent to Dixie Highway . The second set is about 1.5 miles further west, adjacent to I-95. Tri-Rail and Brightline runs on the tracks near I-95.

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).

Not true, hallandale is booming too. Only a matter of time until Hollywood threads the needle.

Hallandale is booming, but there is space between Hollywood and there that still has hookers on the stroll, and drug dealers controlling the bus stops.

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.

True about comparison of Las Olas and Hollywood Blvd. I lived in Las Olas area and loved it. I then moved to Hollywood in 2000 because I loved downtown Hollywood even more. However, that was before the battle of the loud music started and really did so much to ruin otherwise lovely evenings on Hollywood Blvd. Chocolada started the problem in the early 2000s. Their extremely loud live music out on the sidewalk ruined business for the terrific, French restaurant next door. The French restaurant tried to get even by starting their own live program to drown out the Chocolada noise. Then no one could even pass, much less sit there. It was just deafening. The French restaurant finally had no choice but to go out of business. Too bad. It had been a long-time favorite of so many before Chocolada opened and ruined lovely evenings for everyone. Too bad the City of Hollywood, who is usually johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to getting in residents’ personal business, did not step in and enforce some kind of noise ordinance.
