A new highrise hotel is headed to the oceanfront at the end of 21st Avenue North.

The 26-story Marriott tower is being built at the former Breakers registration building, located at 2004 N. Ocean Blvd., which was demolished in January.

Renderings created by LS3P, a local architecture firm, shows space for an outdoor pool, a lazy river and laundry units on each floor. On the 26th floor, there is space for a restaurant and bar area, with a glass floor on the ocean side of the building. There also is space for outdoor seating on the top floor.

On the side of the building there is space for a walkway to the ocean. Renderings show the path with landscaping and benches.
