557-Foot Tower Proposed In Fort Lauderdale

Plans have just been filed for a 46-story Fort Lauderdale residential tower taller than any existing building in the city.

The project has no name, and is referred to by its address in the new filing – 101 SE 7th Street.

101 SE 7th Street is planned to rise 557 feet and include:

  • 630 residential units
  • 5,682 square feet of commercial space
  • 713 parking spaces on levels 1-9

ODA of New York is the architect. Levon Capital of Jackson, New Jersey is the developer.

A hearing before Fort Lauderdale’s Development Review Committee is scheduled for November 29.

You people who always write against Fort Lauderdale and west palm probably weren’t even born and raised in Miami. If you had half a brain you’d know what’s good for Miami is good for FTL and WPB and vice versa. It’s one metro area. And if it’s because you feel threatened that those cities are gonna steal Miami’s shine, then you’re even more dumb. Miami will always be the principle city in south Florida.

Also these other areas are within Miami’s metropolitan area by definition. A rising tied should lift all boats here in Soflo and Miami should understand a little competition is never a bad thing.

Who are all these down voters being competitive with Fort Lauderdale? We all do better when our neighbors do better. It’s the same with home values. Would you rather see your neighbors foreclose, or build equity? Some people are clueless.

It’s embarrassing we can’t even get genuine architectural debate on this site because one group of people is so, so bothered by nice architecture being produced in Fort Lauderdale.

It’s pathetic.

Don’t worry. Us genuine people see through the down votes and comments, it’s so obvious. This is clearly a stunning design and objectively valuable. All of south Florida can learn from this for future designs 👍

Because the site is called the next MIAMI not Broward. We would debate on the next broward, but it doesn’t exist because Broawrd is irrelevant. Plus Broward doesn’t have a nice ring to it because it’s named after a white man, booooring.

It also shares the name of a long-extinct Indian tribe with a college town in Flagler’s shared home state, because he didn’t want the city to be named after him.

Funny, but I never said anything about “robots.” I wrote the statement that said “Any woman (or man if you’re a woman).” I wasn’t talking about or assuming any person’s sexual preference, I was only assuming someone from Miami taste only for somebody from Miami, because if Ft Lauderdale or some other city or state is mentioned on this site, some people go bonkers!

I get your point but when you say “any woman (or man if you’re a woman)”, it’s like saying those are the only two options. I believe you didn’t mean it that way, and your underlying point was a good one. People wouldn’t reject one another for being from Ft Lauderdale or Miami. No worries ✌️

Learn from this stunner, Miami!!! This is what you get when you put design over size. Seems like Miami is sacrificing design in order to get more size, sad. It’s not the size of the tower that makes a city flower. Look at DC or Paris for example.

Half of it is in Europe and the other half is in the Middle East. The European side is largely ancient architecture and the middle eastern side is very modern, but both sides have their fare share of the other and it’s a beautiful harmonious city. Sounds like you haven’t been there have you? Check out a map and photos. It’s pretty cool and you can fly direct from Miami on the luxurious air line Turkish Air.

Gaudy? This has elegant arches, smooth repetition of shapes, modern glass and not just a flat cube like Waldorf building. The Waldorf looks like something you’d find in NYC in the 70s/80s basic rectangular box. The build on this page looks like a new style of engineering and will age better. It also has a more tropical vibe, as the shapes are more organic and found in nature. The Waldorf looks very corporate and does not go well with the Miami skyline.

It will not age better, the Waldorf has a tried and tested design hence why you’re so pressed over it’s supposed “70s/80s design”. This building is vomit inducing and hideous with all its curves and glass.

They stopped building those 70s/80s rectangular designs. People are moving away from them. Miami looks good with rounded edges and organic shapes.

Please see the new high- rise designs in NY below.

Some ideas to modernize the WA design: incorporate a pattern to the top block like 45 Broad Street, tilt the top plane diagonally like Skyline tower, or incorporate crossing structural lines like 53W53.
