Miami Beach’s new construction is continuing with a pair of newly-proposed towers, according to a report from brokerage and consultancy Condo Vultures. The condo towers include the Deauville Hotel Beach Resort and the Residences at the Miami Beach Edition, which would together comprise around 440 units. There are now more than 13,315 units proposed in the tri-county area since the beginning of the real estate downturn, with 88 new towers planned. — Alexander Britell

Miami’s famed Deauville Beach Resort — known for hosting the Beatles — is seeking permission to add a new 21-story tower, according to Curbed. The owners have asked the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board to discuss the issue at their November 20th meeting. If built, the tower would rise above the hotel’s current ballroom and pool area.
During the housing boom a new residential tower had been approved and the new proposal seems to be a modification of Kobi Karp’s original designs, according to Curbed. [more]
The Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach — site of one of the Beatles’ most famous performance and the hotel of choice for a number of past presidents and celebrities — is facing a city-mandated shutdown because of more than 100 building and fire code violations. The 484-room property must address the problems, many of which have been outstanding since October, by the end of this month or it could be shuttered, the city said. On June 30, the hotel’s theater and three ballrooms — including the Napolean Ballroom, where the Beatles performed on the “Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964 — were closed down because of problems with their exits and the fire alarm system. Also closed was the Richelieu Ballroom, the would-have-been site of a South Miami couple’s wedding last month. They instead were forced to hold the ceremony in the hotel lobby and are now considering taking legal action against the resort. Assistant City Manager Jorge Gomez said the city has been meeting with the ownership and management and doubts closing the Deauville will be necessary. [Miami Herald]
