DAMAC Submits Plans for Former Champlain Towers South Site

DAMAC International has submitted its application for planning approval to the Town of Surfside, incorporating a pair of design variations by Zaha Hadid Architects for a 12-story oceanfront condominium with 57 residences at 8777 Collins Ave. 

Both designs feature a twin-building duality, with a sculptural form modulated with nested crescents that coalesce at the corners. 

It is the former site of Champlain Towers South, a 12-story beachfront condominium that partially collapsed June 24, 2021, resulting in 98 deaths. DAMAC purchased the 1.8-acre oceanfront property in July 2022. 

“We know we cannot replace what was so painfully lost, but it is our desire that the building honors and respects its location at the heart of Surfside’s community and offers a sense of closure to the tragic event of the past while also providing a sense of a new beginning,” said Niall Mc Loughlin, DAMAC International senior vice president of communications.
