Downtown Boutique Hotel Invites Miamians to Pitch Their Ideas to Restore Old Post Office Building to Historic Grandeur

After beautifully restoring the historic Miami National Bank building and transforming it into The Langford Hotel, Miami-based Stambul Development today unveils details about the Old Post Office Development Contest, which invites local artists, urban planners, architects, students, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and any other concerned Miamian to offer their personal vision of what should now become of the Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse Building. Stambul Development encourages contestants to present ideas that are innovative, authentic, and original.

Stambul, a development and construction company specializing in the development of new structures including custom homes, commercial buildings and hospitality projects, recently embarked on a journey to revive downtown Miami. This journey began when Stambul teamed up with Coral Gables-based Trust Hospitality to convert the historic Beaux Arts edifice at 121 SE First Street into T

he Langford Hotel. Now that The Langford Hotel has become a reality, Stambul has strategically chosen The Old Post Office building as the next target of its revitalization efforts.

Located at the heart of downtown Miami at 100-118 Northeast Avenue, the Old Post Office is a significant landmark to the history of architecture, government, economics and community development in Miami. The four-story, Neo-Classical building was the first major federal facility in Miami, and was constructed over a three year period, from 1912-1914. It was designed by Kiehnel, Elliott and Oscar Wenderoth, and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on January 4, 1989. The Miami-Dade County Tax Records say this building was built in 1917.

Contest Goals

The aim of the Old Post Office Development Contest is to restore the Old Post Office to its original, historic grandeur while also providing the best use for the building and serving the surrounding downtown market. Stambul Development seeks to seamlessly integrate the Old Post Office building with the downtown community, and develop a project that is feasible, profitable, and that will attract people to the downtown area.

Contest Schedule

The Old Post Office Development Contest will adhere to the following schedule: The contest begins on January 01, 2015 and ends on June 19, 2015 (the “Contest Period”).

Participant submissions (“Proposals”) will be accepted from 9:00 a.m. EST on April 21, 2015 until 5:00 p.m. EST on June 5, 2015 (the “Proposal Period”). Winners will be announced on June 19, 2015.

Contest Prizes

The three most deserving projects will be chosen by a jury made up of members of the board of the company and local professionals based on the following criteria: creativity, feasibility, compliance with the contest’s goals, and innovation. The winners will have the opportunity to see their vision realized, showcase their Proposals at The Langford Hotel, and receive both a two-night stay at The Langford and one following money Prizes: First Prize: $5,000; Second Prize: $2,000; Third Prize: $1,000.
