Proposal Would Convert South Beach Nursing Home Into 110-Room Hotel

In South Beach, a proposal has been submitted to convert a nursing home facility into a hotel with 110 rooms.

If approved, the five-story structure would be renovated and expanded. The building currently has 88 hospital rooms.

A variance will need to be approved to allow a rooftop pool deck, and for hotel rooms at 265 square feet (compared to the minimum requirement of 300 square feet). Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board will review the plans on April 10.

550 Ninth, LLC is the developer, managed by Simon Nemni and with ownership by individuals in Israel, France and Miami.

Shulman and Associates is the architect.
