A proposed project to renovate the iconic Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina, known for its revolving rooftop restaurant, could also add more than 100 new homes.

The 32-acre site of the hotel could get a mix of condos, villas and single-family homes, plus shops and restaurants. The plan is scheduled to go before the Fort Lauderdale Development Review Committee on Nov. 13.

“We want to bring some life and some energy to the marina and celebrate Fort Lauderdale as the yachting capital of the world,” said Jessi Blakley, spokeswoman for the developer, Tavistock Development Co.

The plan for 127 new homes includes:

Condos: Two 11-story towers on the southwest portion of the site with 38 units each. The first and second floors of both condo buildings would have office space and commercial space for retail and restaurants.

Villas: Four, four-story buildings on the north side of the site with 39 villas.

Single-family homes: 12, four-story houses that would measure about 5,000 square feet each and have private yards.

In addition to the new residential projects, the plan calls for renovating hotel rooms.
