(businesspress24) - SOUTH BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 12/30/14 -- The Collins Park neighborhood of Miami''s South Beach in Florida has been experiencing a renaissance, thanks to the Think Hotel Group (THG), a real estate development company that has been renovating and reopening a number of classic historical properties in the area. Collins Park has benefitted greatly from the group''s chic condo hotel program at the Boulan South Beach, which opened in 2011, and from the newer and more casual addition of 2014 -- SBH . Up next for are the Ansonia House and Plymouth Hotel, which are planning to open their doors to the flourishing community in 2015.

Founded by three lifelong friends in their early 30s -- Mark Shemel, Shawn Vardi, and Hunter Gellin -- Think Hotel Group started in the early 2000s, acquiring and managing several small apartments in Brooklyn. When the opportunity to take over the Boulan arose in 2011, the trio jumped at the chance to relocate to Florida and leave their hospitality footprint in the resurgent scene of the iconic South Beach area. With its four properties on the 21st block of Collins Avenue, the group is changing the landscape of the Collins Park neighborhood, known for its eclectic art scene and home to Miami City Ballet, the Jackie Gleason Theater, and the Bass Museum of Art.

The modern design of SBH is characterized by a minimalist approach to its interior design and the original contemporary art by the local Miami photographer Santino "Santlov" Sverdlov, whose pictures from the 2012 collection ToysRLikeUs are exhibited in rooms and hallways throughout the hotel. During its renovation, the group carefully preserved the original hotel''s details, such as the private outdoor courtyard and terrazzo flooring that adorns the lobby, created by its architect, Henry Hohauser, when it was built in 1939 as the Liberty Arms Hotel.

For Think Hotel Group, Miami''s is part of realizing their vision of turning the exclusive Collins Park neighborhood into a mecca for art fans from the rest of Florida and all over the world. To achieve that, the eager trio seized the opportunity to acquire the entire block of Miami''s 21st Street and is now restoring its iconic Art Deco buildings while infusing a modern vibe into the neighborhood. The proximity to the attractive Lincoln Road Mall, which features art galleries and gourmet restaurants, beckons visitors to the world-renowned Ocean Drive nightlife.
