SHVO and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts announce the restoration of Miami Beach’s most storied property, The Raleigh, by renowned architect Peter Marino

SHVO, the New York-based, culture-defining real estate development and investment firm, and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts®, the ultra-luxury global hospitality brand, are pleased to announce the next chapter of the iconic Miami Beach property, The Raleigh, with a highly anticipated revival and restoration. Located at 1775 Collins Avenue, the re-imagined, three-acre retreat with 220 feet of ocean frontage in the heart of Miami’s vibrant Art Deco district will feature three distinct components designed by famed architect Peter Marino:

A 60 room and suite hotel managed by Rosewood, entirely restored and elegantly modernized with ultra-luxury service and amenities.

Rosewood Residences Miami Beach, a newly constructed 17-story oceanfront tower featuring 44 residences and timeless architecture.

A private member’s club offering beachfront dining and leisure.

“As the steward of Miami’s most iconic property, The Raleigh, I am thrilled to partner with preeminent luxury hotel brand, Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, and world-renowned architect Peter Marino to reimagine and secure the rich legacy of The Raleigh, creating a new, unparalleled hospitality experience in Miami Beach,” says Michael Shvo, Chairman and CEO of SHVO. “We are excited to introduce the hotel as well as the residences at The Raleigh, which offer the unique opportunity, for the first time ever, to live on property.”

Acclaimed American architect and frequent SHVO collaborator Peter Marino is helming the design and restoration of the property in collaboration with Miami-based Kobi Karp Architects, engaging celebrated artists and craftsmen to imagine an elegant and authentic contemporary design. Keeping The Raleigh’s distinct Miami history in mind, The Raleigh’s famed gathering places, the Martini Bar and Tiger Room, will be restored and reborn with an eye for both Miami’s historic Art Deco elegance and its modern roots.

“At Rosewood, we are committed to preserving historical gems that truly embody their destinations, while also breathing new life into the properties,” says Sonia Cheng, Chief Executive Officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “Our commitment to the local community is to ensure that The Raleigh honors its legacy for locals and visitors to once again relish this long-cherished property.”

Originally constructed in the 1940s by Miami architect Lawrence Murray Dixon, The Raleigh will be complemented with the addition of its two historic neighbors, the Richmond and South Seas Hotels, with each buildings’ historic Art Deco facade restored and integrated within the ultra-luxury hotel, in line with Rosewood’s guiding A Sense of Place® philosophy. SHVO is developing The Raleigh, South Seas, and Richmond Hotels together with Deutsche Finance America.

Working closely with the Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board, SHVO’s comprehensive and meticulous restoration plans are now underway and include Miami’s most iconic swimming pool known for its curvaceous design and tropical foliage, designated the most beautiful pool in America by Time Magazine.

“This fresh, historic restoration and renovation of The Raleigh joins a private beach club with a Latin beat and elegant residences of demure black, white and ivory. This mixture is the best Miami cocktail that I can imagine,” says Peter Marino.

The contemporary new tower adjacent to the historic Raleigh hotel will house Rosewood Residences Miami Beach featuring 44 private homes with unobstructed ocean views and prime ocean proximity. The tower’s façade features white columns and black mullions that create rhythm and movement while prioritizing large windows for maximum light, air, and ocean views. In the interiors, a calm material palette featuring artisan plasters, hand-painted millwork, and noble stones with impeccable detailing create a serene and elegant place for living. The residences are accessible via private porte-cochere and two dedicated residential lobbies featuring art and furnishings curated by Peter Marino.
