SURFSIDE, Fla. – Three years after the sudden, tragic collapse of Champlain Towers South near Miami, a Dubai-based developer and London-based architect are preparing three potential design proposals for a luxury living community to be built at the exact location where 98 individuals perished.

Construction of a 52-unit condominium development by DAMAC International, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, could begin in early 2025. Commissioners representing the town of Surfside approved the developer’s plan in a 3-2 vote back in September 2023. Three final concept designs are anticipated to come forward in the next 30 to 60 days. The architect is also known for its design of downtown Miami skyscraper One Thousand Museum.

The developer’s units will span a two-block, 1.8-acre site, with each of the 52 residential units listed in excess of $1 million.

Champlain Towers South collapsed in the middle of the night on June 24, 2021. The uncollapsed portion of the tower was demolished 10 days later.
