The Tower Hotel in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood has been purchased by the Miami-based Barlington Group for $1.7 million. The 50-room hotel, which hosted musicians from Billie Holiday to Louis Armstrong in its heyday, is located at 1450 SW 7th Street. “Barlington Group has been doing business in Little Havana for more than 10 years, and all along, we have had our eyes on the Tower Hotel,” said Bill Fuller, managing partner of Barlington Group. The deal was brokered by Greg Celentano of Union Street Partners, who represented Barlington and seller Loujen Realty. The company plans to redevelop the property into a boutique hotel. — Alexander Britell
