MIAMI—Fasano, a Brazilian based hospitality and gastronomy firm, is expanding its global brand by opening its first Fasano hotel in the U.S. at Miami Beach’s Shore Club, according to HFZ Capital Group, a New York-based real estate investment and development firm.
The hotel is expected to open at the end of 2017. The Shore Club is being completely transformed to include an approximately 100-room hotel and 75 luxury condominium residences, which are being designed by Brazilian architect and designer Isay Weinfeld. The entire property will be known as Fasano Hotel and Residences at Shore Club.
For more than a century, the Fasano family has aimed to provide impeccable service and the finest experience in hospitality through its portfolio of restaurants and hotels, according to the company. The first Fasano Hotel opened in 2003 in São Paulo. It also marked Isay Weinfeld’s first hotel project.
“Fasano has an unparalleled tradition of excellence which aligns perfectly with our vision for a completely transformed Shore Club. We are thrilled to have Fasano as our partner and to introduce Miami Beach to their unique approach to hospitality,” said Ziel Feldman, founder and chairman, HFZ Capital Group.
Fasano Hotel and Residences at Shore Club is located on the oceanfront in Miami Beach. This will be Weinfeld’s first large-scale project in Miami. The City of Miami Beach Historic Preservation Board unanimously approved Weinfeld’s design plans for the project earlier this year.
