Canyon Ranch Miami Beach Hotel Sells for $21.6 Million

Canyon Ranch Miami Beach residents should sleep a little bit better at night. The uncertainty of having their beloved building stuck in a whirlwind of negativity has now subsided to a degree with some new news. It’s been a tense few months as the amazing destination resort, based on positive energy, health and well-being, was paralyzed by the gloom and doom of a bankruptcy auction that could easily place the development into the wrong hands. I was personally involved with a couple of different groups that had interest in the auction process, so I was able to hear a wide range of opinions on the state of affairs and potential future of the hotel and amenities.  Some of the potential resolutions to the auction were good and some were quite bad.  I’m happy to report that I am quite optimistic about the outcome to-date.

The good news is that a winner bidder has now surfaced from the auction of Canyon Ranch Miami Beach.  I was delighted to hear that Z Capital Partners won with a bid of $21.6 million, which was above the stalking horse bid of $12 Million by 360 Vox, LLC out of Canada.  The winning bid was easily enough to pay off the estimated $17.3 million in liabilities that is owed.  There is a word of caution though, the results of auction still need to be approved by a bankruptcy judge on September 12th. So, what is it about Z Capital Partners, based out of Chicago, that has me excited? What is the grounds for optimism?

Canyon Ranch Miami Beach Set for Bankruptcy Auction

Canyon Ranch Miami Beach has some bad news circulating that may be quite harmful to the amazing brand. Some big news has hit the press this week regarding the filing of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection by a Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. subsidiary that owns the Canyon Ranch Hotel and Spa. Apparently, the filing of the status is meant to be a positive mechanism to help complete a sale of the amazing property with the best condo amenities in Miami.  A new potential buyer appears to be a conglomerate with a portfolio of hospitality properties that include the Enchantment Resort in Sedona.

So, what do we make of this negative news about the amazing Canyon Ranch Miami Beach?  How should it be interpreted?  Lets first look at the conditions leading to problems. Back during the Great Recession, a Lehman Brothers implosion was the talk of the financial community.  It secured ownership of Canyon Ranch Miami Beach through a deed in lieu of foreclosure.  The development group, WSG, experienced some significant difficulties in bringing the half a billion dollar+ development to the market unscathed during teeth of the Great Recession.  So consequently, the project fell into the wrong hands at the wrong time. Lehman Brothers had massive problems of its own and was ill-equipped to properly manage the new five star trophy property.
