Hollywood Florida’s Block 40 tower continues to rise and is nearly topped off. The building has now reached level 17 of construction, according to a contractor Cavossa Management & Kast Construction. Block 40 will include 166 apartments and a 103-room Hilton Garden Inn in a 19-story tower. It is being built on the site of the Great Southern Hotel at N Young Cir & 1858 Hollywood Blvd. The hotel closed in 1991. A portion of the historic hotel’s interiors and northern and western walls will be integrated into the new project. GCF Development and Chip Abele of Florida Gold Coast are the project developers. Adache Group is the architect. International Design Concepts is the interior designer. The project will be completed in January 2022 at a cost of $90 million.
