W South Beach To Do List: Demolish Holiday Inn
According to the W South Beach website, the hotel and residences are expected to open "at the end of 2007". Granted, that means the cast and crew has a whole year to finish this 511 unit development, but damn they have some work to do in that timeframe.
When it is finished, and if we were the gambling kind we would pick 08 instead of 07, all units will face the ocean with unobstructed views, all units will have 9 foot ceilings, 5 1350 sq. ft bungalows will be for sale, and all condo owners will have the option of participating in the W Hotels rental program--Setai style--we are guessing.
After the jump we have posted a photo with the crumbling Holiday Inn (soon to be the W South Beach) in the foreground and the starting to sparkle Gansevoort South in the background so you can get a sense of which hotel is in the development lead at this point. In any event, once W South Beach is complete it will this stretch of Miami Beach will be able to boast the Setai, W South Beach, Gansevoort South, in that order. Damn, that should be one high luxe triumvirate.
