1.4M-Square-Foot The Main Las Olas Now Under Construction In Fort Lauderdale

Construction is now underway on a 1.4 million square foot twin-tower project in Fort Lauderdale called The Main Las Olas.

It is the biggest project ever for developer Stiles Corp, which was founded in 1951, according to the SFBJ.

Twin towers connected by a plaza are being built an 2.7 acres of land. A 10-story garage topped by an amenity deck will be in between the two buildings.

A 25-story glassy office tower will include 357,000 square feet of Class A space, with 85,000 square feet already pre-leased, according to the Sun Sentinel. The second tower will be 27 stories and include 341 apartments for rent.

At the ground floor, 17,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space is planned under the office tower. An additional 26,000 square feet of grocer is planned under the residential tower.

Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale station is about a half mile walk away from the site.

Work got underway this summer, with completion in 2020.

Cooper Carry is the architect.

FLL is going in the right direction. it’s becoming incredibly dense with good designs.

Except the new commie mayor killed The Wave streetcar, and is waging war on development, some good and some bad.

As a FtL local, I agree he is commie, but the Wave was actually a horrible idea. It was costing over a billion to travel a 2.8 mile track, that honestly didn’t go anywhere. It also ran on street level which would be horrible for safely and traffic. Unfortunately FtL is not Miami and density should be treated the same way.

I stopped reading after “commie”. Please learn what communism actually is before making idiotic comments.

Love that all glass tower on the left in the renderings.

Can Miami finally get a solid size office tower???

peej

The office tower’s curtain wall design is impressive, just wish I could say the same for the rental tower. The enormous podium needs some contrast as well, especially when viewed from the Northwest (4th render). Some greenery &/or art would be an improvement to what’s currently shown.

The most exciting news for this project is the Publix, & downtown residents not having to cross the Andrews Ave bridge south for groceries.

Well I think it looks neat and tidy and of high quality, much better compared to most stuff from Arquitectonica, etc.

By “art,” you mean a loud and obnoxious excuse of a mural like Related’s developments? No thanks! Fort Lauderdale tried that with intersections, and now it looks awful.

Guess it’s a matter of opinion, but yes–I’d prefer an “obnoxious excuse” instead of a blank wall, or generic metal screens as currently rendered.

Some of the intersections don’t currently look great due to patchy roadwork, but overall I think they’re a great idea. We can agree that they should be maintained better, but again, still my preference over asphalt & white lines.

downtown Miami needs sidewalks like these

Its interesting that no commercial space fronts Las Olas. It would have been nice to finally extend the restaurants west towards Andrews.

That’s okay, let him hate… that’s why some people in Fort Lauderdale call Miami a “Banana Republic.”
