Commune Hotels & Resorts, which opened the Thompson Miami Beach in November, announced Wednesday it is expanding California-based brand Joie de Vivre Hotels to South Beach.

The Hall, a 164-room hotel at 1500 Collins Ave., will open this summer. Formerly the Haddon Hall hotel and an adjacent apartment complex, the property will include a restaurant, courtyard, library, bar, pool and beer garden after extensive renovations.

Rockwood Capital bought the property in 2013 for a reported $34.5 million.

ADD Inc., a Miami architectural firm, and interior design company Robert McKinley Creative Services are handling the project, which will preserve Art Deco details and add Latin American design influences.

The company said a new 229-room Joie de Vivre hotel in New York City, another East Coast expansion, is set to open in 2016.

Hotels under the Joie de Vivre brand are individually designed with their locations in mind; the brand includes nearly 30 properties in California, Hawaii, Illinois, Washington, D.C. and Arizona.
