JV plans to renovate pool deck, bring in new food and beverage concepts

A joint venture between The Allen Morris Company and Stormont Hospitality partnered with Black Salmon to buy a boutique hotel in Miami Beach, the second in a series of planned purchases together.

AMS Hospitality Group and Black Salmon paid $25.5 million for Circa 39, a 97-key hotel at 3900 Collins Avenue, according to a press release. The Art Deco-style property includes two buildings and a surface parking lot across the street.

Records show ThirtyNine Collins LLC, led by Kent Janzon, co-owner of The Palms Hotel & Spa, sold Circa 39.

The price breaks down to $263,000 per key. Host Hotels holds the per-room record in Miami-Dade County. It paid $1.42 million per key for the 1 Hotel South Beach in 2019.

The two companies plan to spend $300 million acquiring hotels and other hospitality properties. Their first purchase together was in December when they acquired the Pelham Hotel New Orleans.

Jorge Escobar of Black Salmon said the joint venture is focused on buying value-add hotels in the Southeast.
“As the market has been recovering so fast, we had to move also very fast,” he said.
