The Related Group’s $150M Beachwalk Resort in South Florida Opens
HALLANDALE, FLA. — Beachwalk Resort, a 33-story, $150 million resort developed by Miami-based The Related Group and managed by Gemstone Hotels & Resorts, opened today in South Florida.
Beachwalk Resort is comprised of 300 units, 216 of which are two-bedroom suites. Each of the units is a privately owned condominium. The resort’s owners and guests have access to a three-story beach club with pool, lockers, showers, restrooms, an outdoor bar and restaurant with chaise service and beach facilities, all accessible by a complimentary, electric trolley.
“Because of their deep understanding of the luxury residential market, The Related Group has developed a vacation resort that speaks to the needs and desires of the modern family,” says Thomas Prins, principal of Gemstone.
“With two more similarly positioned resorts coming on line in 2016 and in 2018, I expect that we will dramatically shift the mix of vacation options in this part of South Florida, and perhaps even define a new standard.”
Beachwalk features interiors designed by Italian car design firm Pininfarina and contemporary Italian furnishings. The hotel also features original works of art from the collection of Jorge Pérez, patron of the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
Other amenities on the property include an infinity-edged pool, fitness center, complimentary bicycles for city touring, grocery shopping services and a complimentary shuttle to the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, Gulfstream Park racetrack and casino and Aventura Mall.
The resort’s restaurants include Beachwalk Bistro & Market, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, as well as the Beachwalk Bar and Pool Grill. The Beachwalk Resort is located near to white-sand beaches, outlet mall shopping and nightlife.
Gemstone will operate two other projects under development by The Related Group in Broward County.
Founded in 1979, The Related Group is one of the country’s largest real estate conglomerates. Since its inception, the company has built, rehabilitated and managed more than 90,000 condominium and apartment residences.
