Iconic Miami Beach Lifeguard Stands to be Removed by 2015

The iconic South Beach lifeguard stands that are beloved by locals and tourist will be all removed by March 2015. Then they will be replaced by what city officials say are even better, more modern and artistic ones. The city promises that the new designs are “really really hip, they’re really cool, ” and match the style of Miami Beach much better than the current ones. A good sign is that Architect William Lane, who design some of the current ones, has given the designs the thumbs up. In fact, he has designed some of the new ones as well.”The cost is about $30,000-$50,000 each — out of probably about $1.2 to $1.5 million that’s already been budgeted,” Levine said. The city is still debating whether to auction the old lifeguard stands or take another creative approach to what to do with them. A total of 29 lifeguard stands are budgeted for the project.
