From the Miami Herald: “Hollywood beach to get its own Margaritaville”
Hollywood city commissioners voted Wednesday night to go with a Cheeseburger in Paradise rather than Somewhere Over the Rainbow as they voted unanimously to approve plans for a $100 million Margaritaville resort on the city’s most prized piece of oceanfront land.
From WSVN channel 7: “City decides on beach’s landscape”
City leaders have made a decision that will dramatically alter Hollywood Beach’s landscape.
City leaders have approved a proposal for Margaritaville to begin plans to reside on Hollywood Beach.
Initially two $100 million hotel proposals were being considered for 25 acres of beach, between the Intracoastal and the boardwalk at Johnson Street.
Margaritaville and Jimmy Buffet were up against Sylvester Stallone and his Planet Hollywood. The developer of Planet Hollywood said the opinion polls are swinging his way. “Planet Hollywood is leading two to one in all the public opinion polls,” Jim Wilson said.
