The Surf Club is a proposed condo-hotel at the site of the historic Surf Club located at 9011 Collins Avenue in Surfside.
The site plan includes:
A 285 unit condo hotel including a gourmet specialty food product store, a five-star hotel and spa, roof top decks, pools, 661 parking spaces.
There will be three 12-story buildings on the east side of Collins Avenue, and two four-story buildings on the west side of Collins Avenue.
Members of the Surf Club have accepted an offer to sell for $116 million. There were multiple offers on the club, all of which were unsolicited.
The buyer is Turkish multinational conglomerate Koc group, which is based in Istanbul. Koc had $38 billion in annual revenues last year.
The club is 6 acres, but designated as historic which will hinder development. Additionally, Surfside has a strict 12-story height limit.
The Surf Club was built in 1930 and designed by architect Russell Pancoast.
