On a very hot Tuesday, April 16th at approximately 10:10am the South Shore Hospital was imploded. The South Shore’s empty shell or carcass, which stood at the gateway to Miami Beach for over 10 years tumbled down in a controlled demolition that took but 5 seconds.
The implosion breakfast event was attended by Miami notables, public figures and officials who came to witness a rare, controlled demolition explosion of the hospital. The demolition of South Shore Hospital gives way to The Park On Fifth, which will be a mixed use development done by Crescent Heights and Terra Group Miami.
Developers Russell Galbut of Crescent Heights and David Martin of Terra Group will develop the 500-700 blocks of Alton Road. The Park on Fifth will include a three acre park donated to Miami Beach, a 44 story condo tower, over 50,000 sf of amenities and retail/restaurant spaces.
