When a proposed high-rise condo tower threatened to permanently alter the look of Miami Beach’s “Hotel Row,” the owners of the National asked us to tell their story — how the 84-year-old Art Deco gem, along with the Delano and Ritz Plaza hotels, had helped define Golden Age Miami Beach, and how the current fight against the tower was an extension of the efforts that created the South Beach Historic District in the first place. The resulting video was Exhibit A when the National took its case to the city’s preservation board, urging it to reject the project.
