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.

Thank god!!! I live near there and this block (along with the 7-11) has always attracted the riff raff. This is great news.

Just wait. I’m sure the historical preservationists are out there right now pulling some strings to prevent redevelopment and have this beautiful building protected.

How close is this to residential buildings? As seen this past weekend, having Airbnbs in residential areas can bring noise and crime to areas where they shouldn’t be.

Dude what are you talking about ?? If anything, if it wasn’t for the allowed Airbnb rentals on south beach where ALL if not MOSTof them are in residential areas all the old small multifamily and condo buildings in the area would still look like shit and still have sub-par tenants. This is great for that block and the area… Go read a book or something and go back to sleep kid.

Found the “investor” who rents out on Airbnb.

Wether it’d be renting out those new 110 units on Airbnb, regular 6month-1 year leases or as hotel rooms, that entire street and block would benefit from it and it’d better than having the eyesore of a building that’s currently in place there today bud…FACT. So guess the “investor” above does have a valid point
