In Progress: Restoration of the Vagabond Motel in Miami
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.
