By William Gjebre, FloridaBulldog.org, Special to SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct 14, 2015 – A proposal for a massive, four-tower project in Hallandale Beach featuring three hotels, 938 rooms and a 250-unit high-rise condominium under the Diplomat brand will be officially unveiled to nearby residents at a meeting Thursday in the city’s Cultural Center.
The four towers will elevate the city’s skyline and represent a significant expansion of an existing 60-room hotel at the Diplomat Golf Resort and Spa, placing its room count on par — and then some — with the nearby 998-room Diplomat Resort and Spa, on Hollywood Beach.
The project is estimated to cost $100 million.
Hallandale city officials said owners of the new mixed-use development, to be called the Diplomat Hotel and Country Club, have said the two facilities are not directly tied and are apparently separate operations. Previously media reports, however, have linked the two to the Thayer Lodging Group of Annapolis, Md.
