Condo, hotel towers may rise on the beach

A developer plans a 191-unit mixed-use resort to replace the Adams’ Mark Hotel on Clearwater Beach. By AARON SHAROCKMAN Published May 28, 2005 CLEARWATER BEACH – A boxy beach hotel could make way for condominium and resort rooms, adding more swank to a beach already headed four star. Developers submitted plans this week to remake the 217-room Adam’s Mark Hotel into a lavish 191-unit mixed-use resort. It’s a drastic change for the tourist district’s pedestrian southern gateway, but status quo for rapidly changing Clearwater Beach, where more than $1-billion in projects are now contemplated, all upscale. In this case, two West Indies-style towers, 100 and 150 feet tall, would replace the now-closed Adam’s Mark, according to plans submitted to the city. A courtyard bordered with Christmas palms and tiled mosaics would separate the buildings, the taller of which would be shaped like an “L,” stretching along the Gulf of Mexico. That building would include 113 condominiums in 15 stories, the top two floors called “Diplomat levels.” The smaller building, which would be a 78-room hotel, would face S Gulfview Boulevard. In renderings the towers seem to blend together, 584,000 total square feet separated only by the small courtyard. The developer, international home builder Taylor Woodrow, declined to comment Friday on the proposal. The company, a publicly traded British firm that boasts $5-billion in annual revenue, is not the listed owner of the 2.44-acre site. The owners, Pyramid Advisors of Boston, could not be reached for comment Friday. Along with the hotel and condominium, plans call for a small retail space of 2,910 square feet. Developers will also build an expansive promenade with plazas and water fountains along the stretch of the property, meant to match the city’s grandiose $16.2-million Beach Walk program. Beach Walk will remake the main tourist stretch of S Gulfview. Taylor Woodrow’s project would anchor the southern block. The Adam’s Mark has been closed since October because of damage sustained during the hurricane season. Its owners have said the hotel would be remodeled and reopened as a Radisson resort. But developers now plan to tear the building down.
