A large beachside hotel sat empty for years along A1A. That’s all about to change.

A beachside hotel building near the entrance of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is in for a big comeback after sitting dormant for seven years.

The five-story, 183-room hotel building — once home to a Holiday Inn — is being bought by developers who plan to add a “state-of-the-art hotel.”

The deal is among a growing lineup of new properties across Broward County, as many beachside communities add new tourist and business hotels to beef up their commercial centers.

A joint venture of Concord Wilshire Capital LLC and TLG Investment Partners LLC said Tuesday they signed a purchase-and-sale agreement to acquire the now-idle site along with the former Villa Caprice beachfront site nearby. The prices were not disclosed.
