Sun Sentinel: Margaritaville Resort Tops Off Final Floor
Workers have topped off the final floor of the new Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort, which is set to open in summer 2015.. The 17-story, 349-room hotel is rising up on five acres at Johnson Street and A1A along the famed Hollywood Beach Broadwalk. Construction began in August 2013, according to Adache Group Architects, the Fort Lauderdale firm that designed the resort. The Jimmy Buffett-inspired resort will feature seven restaurants and bars, ocean-side pools, a FlowRider wave ride, spa and fitness center and 30,000 square feet of convention space, among other amenities. The resort site also includes a new 1,056 car garage, a water park and boat docks along the Intracoastal Waterway.
