Part of Miami Beach history is slated for demolition. The mansion once owned by notorious gangster Al Capone, has been purchased and the new owners plan to tear it down. The house is located at 93 Palm Avenue, and now is your last chance to see it.

New owner Todd Glaser, told the Herald the home, which is about 3 feet below sea level, has flood damage and standing water underneath it. The new owners plan to build a two-story modern spec home with 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a Jacuzzi, spa and sauna. The city had been discussing plans to give the home, which was refurbished in 2015, a historic designation but the new owners are ready to tear it down.

Al Capone bought the house in 1928 and died there in 1947 from a heart attack.

This is not the house from the movie ‘Scarface”. That house is located at 42 Star Island Drive

Here’s some pictures from when the home was fixed up in 2015.
