A 76-year old house in Fort Lauderdale Beach could be replaced by a 13-story hotel if a developer is successful in a pitch to city commissioners.

The proposal to build the 61-room Vintro hotel on a quarter-acre parcel on Alhambra Street is scheduled to be voted on by Fort Lauderdale commissioners tomorrow, Sun-Sentinel reported. If approved, the project would be another example of the ongoing transformation of the beach from low-density buildings and 60-year-old hotels to modern and taller hotel structures. Vintro would be built directly behind the Casablanca Cafe.

Vintro’s plans include a rooftop pool, penthouse restaurant and ground-floor bar, according to the attorney for the Miami-based company. It is also opening a Miami Beach Vintro in March and building another hotel in New York City.

The boutique hotel would replace a 1936 home currently listed on Fort Lauderdale’s historical survey. The house was the city’s first bed and breakfast. Former Maryland-based U.S. Senator Millard Tydings once lived there. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
