Owners of the neighboring Setai resort had challenged the May 10th board vote

Witkoff and Monroe’s plans to redevelop the Shore Club — and rebrand it as Auberge — are moving forward.

The Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board on Tuesday voted against a rehearing of the redevelopment proposal that the board had approved four months ago. The developers’ attorney Michael Larkin revealed the Auberge branding at the meeting.

The Setai Resort & Residences condo association had challenged the same board’s May 10 decision in favor of Witkoff and Monroe Capital’s plans for the oceanfront historic hotel at 1901 Collins Avenue. Setai entities tied to the Nakash family — creators of Jordache Jeans and owners of the former Versace Mansion — as well as other unit owners, also opposed the Shore Club redevelopment approval.

The board voted 4 to 1 to deny the petitions to hold a new hearing for the project. Board member Stuart Reed, an attorney, was the sole vote in favor of a rehearing.
