Construction of hotel and condo project is underway
Developer Michael Shvo is moving forward with his major redevelopment of the Raleigh Hotel and adjacent properties in Miami Beach after obtaining approval for a deeper underground garage.
Shvo’s attorney, Alfredo Gonzalez of Greenberg Traurig, and architect Kobi Karp presented a proposal to the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board last month, with modifications to the previously approved plans for the project at 1751, 1757, and 1775 Collins Avenue. The board unanimously approved the changes, allowing Shvo to begin major work to the nearly 3-acre assemblage fronting the ocean.
Shvo plans to build a new 175-foot luxury condo tower and restore the Raleigh, South Seas, and Richmond hotels. New York architect Peter Marino designed the plans along with Kobi Karp Architecture & Interior Design.
Construction is underway, according to a spokesperson. The project marks the first in South Florida for the New York developer.
