HFZ Capital Group Acquires Shore Club South Beach

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- Ziel Feldman, Founder & Managing Principal of HFZ Capital Group ("HFZ"), the real estate investment and development company based in New York City, announced today that, in conjunction with an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group LLC ("Fortress") (NYSE: FIG), HFZ has purchased The Shore Club South Beach ("Shore Club"), the luxury, boutique resort property prominently located at 1901 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach, Florida. Philips International will continue to be involved with the new ownership group.

Shore Club, known worldwide for its fresh modern vibe, is currently a 309-key luxury hotel including a tower addition designed by world-renowned, British architect David Chipperfield. It sits on nearly three acres of prime oceanfront real estate and is arguably the only remaining large-scale unencumbered property available to be repositioned and rebranded in the immediate area. In close proximity to the excitement and shopping of Ocean Drive, the Art Deco District, the Lincoln Road retail corridor and South Beach nightlife, Shore Club also enjoys one of the widest beach frontages on South Beach and breathtaking views of Miami Beach.

"We have an extraordinary, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to re-imagine and reposition a world-class property in a market that has seen continued demand for luxury properties," said Mr. Feldman. "The development of oceanfront real estate on South Beach has been fueled by an expanding market for business and tourism, accessibility to international airports and year-round warm weather," he noted.

"With ongoing demand from domestic and international buyers for prime South Beach properties and with Miami Beach's increasing global significance as a tourist destination, we expect the luxury residential and hospitality markets to continue their dynamic growth," added Nir Meir, Principal & Managing Director of HFZ.
