Biscayne Boulevard's iconic Vagabond Motel is getting an extensive restoration by developer and historic preservationist Avra Jain. Her team is working overtime to complete the project in time to throw a swanky party during Art Basel Miami Beach in December. Historic design advocates hail the Vagabond as a prime example of 1950s and 1960s MiMo architectural design with characteristics like an open-air plan, jalousie windows and geometric designs.
The former lobby will become the seafood restaurant. Leading out from the restaurant, there will be an outdoor dining area.
