Daily Progress Report. Gulfstream Hotel, Lake Worth, Florida.

Saturday, July 8th, 2017.


“Architecture is a visual art, and the buildings speak for themselves.”
Julia Morgan, American architect, 18721957.


The video below is from early last year, following all the initial excitement our Gulfstream Hotel was to shortly begin its renovation and spring back to life:



“Maybe it’s our Gulfstream Hotel, still an eyesore in our Downtown following all that excitement in January 2016, that stands a constant reminder what historic preservation cannot do. What needs to happen is not happening.”

Why are there no press releases, community, or neighborhood updates about what’s happening with the Gulfstream Hotel? Do you want to know?
