The developers who got approval for a 40-story, 477-room waterfront hotel or condo-hotel in Hollywood Beach have tapped Ackman-Ziff to help find a joint-venture partner for the project. Shefaor Development announced it wants an experienced, deep-pocketed partner to help complete the project, slated to be designed by Carlos Ott, at 4111 South Ocean Drive.
The firm was founded by Jacques Claudio Stivelman and Gilbert Benhamou, and developed the Artech Resdiences and Uptown Marinal Lofts. It tapped the head of Ackman-Ziff’s Florida office, Robert Kaplan, to shop the opportunity. The project calls for a 477-room hotel or condo-hotel project with more than 200,000 square feet of residential space. Leading architect Carlos Ott designed the project.
