Jeffrey Soffer closed on a $1.175 billion refinancing of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, marking the latest restructuring of debt for the beachfront resort.

The Soffer family-led Turnberry Associates paid $325 million for the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in 2005 and paid another $15 million for a nearby lot where an expansion is planned. Turnberry then spent $650 million on gutting and renovating the 1954 historic hotel, which ranks as the largest hotel in Miami-Dade County.

Designed by architect Morris Lapidus, the Fontainebleau sits on more than 15 acres of land with 11 pools, a 40,000-square-foot spa, and 12 food and beverage venues. The hotel is made up of four towers: the Chateau and Versailles buildings with 846 hotel rooms and the Tresor and Sorrento buildings with 748 condo-hotel units, designed by NBWW Architects.

In June, Jeffrey Soffer received $91 million in financing for the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa from the Bank of China, boosting its loan to $340 million for the Aventura resort, also designed by NBWW.

Soffer is also reportedly in talks to buy the 1,000-room Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood from Brookfield Asset Management’s Thayer Lodging Group.
