New York Fortifies Stronghold on South Florida

22Mar08

Just when you thought that South Florida couldn’t be more like New York (save for the weather, the flora, and the Cuban Diaspora), UrbanDaddy reports that the Hotel Gansevoort is opening up shop in Miami Beach. Whew! In recent years, Hotel Gansevoort has taken a sharp turn down Lombard Street, despite Garden of Ono’s best efforts. Suffice it to say, the corporation could use a refresher. Not to mention, the Delano could use some competition down in sunny Florida, and Gansevoort is just the establishment to bring the noise. Creatively named “Gansevoort South,” the Florida outpost features the same brand of modernist décor, albeit with a brighter palate. Rooftop amenities are also available; however, cabanas are present only at Gansevoort South (the Gansevoort New York offers cabanas in Ono, but they are neither rooftop, nor poolside). The on-premises shopping and cuisine also invokes the New York scene, featuring Big Apple favorites such as STK and Big Drop. Opening Monday at 2377 Collins Avenue, Gansevoort South is located roughly one-half mile from Lincoln Road.
