TURNBERRY ASSOCIATES BEGINS RENOVATION AND EXPANSION OF TURNBERRY ISLE MIAMI

August 3, 2017

Aventura, Florida, August 3, 2017: Turnberry Associates announced today it is beginning a renovation and expansion of Turnberry Isle Miami, the iconic resort in the heart of Aventura. This investment underscores Turnberry Associates’ long-standing commitment to the Aventura community and speaks to the enduring appeal and growing demand for the world-class resort experience Turnberry Isle Miami provides club members and resort guests. Upon completion of the renovation, Turnberry Isle Miami will be rebranded as a JW Marriott, a member of Marriott’s prestigious group of luxury brands.

A new luxury building designed by Nichols, Brosch, Wurst, Wolfe and Associates, which will create additional meeting space, will offer endless flexibility for corporate groups and event planners. The growing list of Turnberry Isle’s best-in-class resort amenities including the legendary Soffer and Miller championship golf courses, the Cañas Tennis Center, and the state-of-the-art âme Spa & Wellness Collective, have made the property a sought-after destination with something to offer every kind of traveler for almost 50 years.

“This investment in Turnberry Isle ensures we continue to deliver the best experience and amenities to our guests and club members. Our renovated and enhanced facilities will join world-famous features of the property including championship golf courses, members’ private rooms, and the âme Spa & Wellness Collective. We’re preserving the elements of Turnberry Isle that have made it an enduring and beloved destination, while adding features that keep the property at the cutting edge of service and style. Turnberry Associates continues to be profoundly committed to the prosperity of Aventura — a community created by my father Don Soffer, with Turnberry Isle Miami at its heart — and to maintaining the highest standard of excellence and luxury,” said Jeff Soffer, Co-Chairman and CEO of Turnberry Associates.

Upgrades to the main lobby and building, front drive, and other key thoroughfares and resort facilities are also planned in this project. The resort and services for members and guests will remain open throughout the project and every effort will be made to minimize disruption to the visitor experience by staggering the phases of work. The hotel will continue to operate, and members and guests will have access to tennis facilities, both golf courses and one resort pool during construction. Certain parts of the golf course will be offline during a portion of the project. Corsair will be closed during part of the project and may have modified hours of operation based on construction schedules.

During the construction phase, staffing levels will be based on the resort’s room capacity and operations. The newly renovated and expanded Turnberry Isle Miami is expected to create new jobs for the community, including a 20-percent increase in resort staff.
