The Ritz Carlton Residences South Beach Contributes To Historical Transformation Of Morris Lapidus' Lincoln Road Beachwalk Entrance


The developers of the new Ritz Carlton Residences South Beach are teaming up with the City of Miami Beach to bring Morris Lapidus’ vision of the Lincoln Road beachwalk to fruition. Utilizing a $4.85 million grant from the state of Florida and contributions from the developers and the City of Miami Beach, locals will soon enjoy a new street redesign with an Art Walk, beachwalk beautification and general pedestrian-friendly redesign all the way from the sand to Washington Avenue.

For those who are new to Miami Beach, Morris Lapidus is the famed architect behind Miami Beach’s historic MiMo designs. You will recognize his work throughout Lincoln Road, the Fontainebleau Hotel, and the Eden Roc, among others. He is one of the most important architects in Miami Beach’s history.

The project has been approved by the developers of the Ritz Carlton Residences South Beach, Historic Preservation Board, Florida Legislature and Governor DeSantis. City leaders are working to ensure that improved traffic flow and pedestrian safety are maintained throughout the redesign, which will revive Morris Lapidus’ vision of the “Lapidus Arch” that was meant to connect the South Beach sand to Lincoln Road.

Status of the Project

Now that funding and support for the 100 block of Lincoln Road has been obtained, the final development agreement will be presented to the City Commission in early summer, followed by a Request for Proposals so that construction may begin.

The team is garnering support to extend the improvements through the 200 and 300 blocks of Lincoln Road, which would connect the sand to Washington Avenue and complete the vision. The community’s support for this expansion is very important for the beautification, increased safety and flow of traffic that residents and property owners will soon enjoy.

The New South Beach

When completed, the new beachwalk entrance will compliment the exclusive feel of the Ritz Carlton Residences South Beach while incorporating the history of Lincoln Road and South Beach with Morris Lapidus’ touch.

Additionally, South Beach in general is experiencing a renaissance. Recent investments into luxury residences, Class A office spaces and a nationwide public relations campaign all distance the area from its hard-partying tourist destination reputation. Going forward, South Beach will be synonymous with class, luxury and artistic decor that pays homage to the rich history of the exclusive neighborhood.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences South Beach is expected to be completed at in the Spring of 2027.
