Renovations are currently underway and the exterior shell of the building has been completed. Additional exterior and interior renovations are in progress and the project is expected to be completed in 2011. Miami Springs Curtiss Mansion is a two-story building in the Pueblo-Mission Revival architectural style utilized by the Curtiss-Bright Company in the 1920s. The 14,733 square foot structure is located on a triangular-shaped 3.35-acre tract in Miami Springs.
The site is locally and nationally designated as historic and protected under a City preservation ordinance. The scope of the restoration work includes a completely new structural system including a new floor and roof structure.
Existing exterior walls will be braced to meet current building code requirements and new mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems will also be installed. Architectural restorations include new interior partitions, windows, doors, stairways, elevators and interior finishes. Exterior improvements include painting and waterproofing. Also, a new catering kitchen will also be installed to facilitate the building’s new community functions.
