The History of 221 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

The history of 221 Collins Avenue is quite unique and one of Miami Beach’s most beloved citizens, Rose Weiss, owned the former Royal Apartment House from 1921 to the mid-1930’s. Rose Weiss moved to Miami Beach in 1920 from New York due to her Asthma condition and on a recommendation from a friend she relocated to the area and loved it. Miami Beach was like paradise to Rose and she knew very quickly she wanted to make it her permanent residence.

Rose landed at the Brown Hotel on 1st street and Ocean Drive and shortly after purchased the Royal Apartment House while it was under construction in 1921.
After purchasing the Apartment House Rose got involved with her community through welfare work and was instrumental in developing Miami Beach’s welfare department in the late 1920s. She was one of the earliest members of the young city’s Chamber of Commerce and was instrumental in developing Miami Beach’s welfare department in the late 1920s. She also suggested the city’s official slogan, “Forward with Caution,” and designed the city’s flag.

These contributions, plus her frequent attendance at city council meetings, led many to refer to Weiss as the “Mother of Miami Beach,” and an “unelected councilman” of the city. In 1975, the City of Miami Beach passed Resolution 75-14749 assigning the name “Rose Weiss Park” to a public space at the corner of Washington Avenue and Second Street.
