Construction Begins At 36-Story New River Yacht Club Phase 2 In Fort Lauderdale

Related Group has obtained financing and commenced construction the 36-story New River Yacht Club Tower 2 in Fort Lauderdale, according to the SFBJ.

The developer is building a design that was approved in 2016.

A $99 million construction loan has been issued that will fund construction.

New River Yacht Club Tower 2 will include 349 apartments, ground floor retail and parking. A pool deck will be located on the eighth floor.

Cohen, Freedman, Encinosa is the architect.

Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale station is about a 15-minute walk from the site.

Hopefully, no silly comments on article not being constrained exclusively to properties in Miami. It is all metropolitan Miami, or South Florida now, and yes including golf and doctor retirement City of Boca Raton.

You’re comment is silly because Boca hasn’t been considered God’s waiting room for quite some time.

Boynton Beach is the place with all the adult living 55 plus communities. Boca is mostly screaming kids and SUVs.

Hard to get the education, amass money, become a developer, then go through government red tape in another country and build apartments and other projects.

But its very easy and cost nothing to criticize on this site.

Unless it’s Aria or their developments fifteen years ago, Melo doesn’t build towers with nice curves. The peach color is also better than gunmetal grey and giant mural pathetically concealing a parking garage. In fact, the same goes for Related, so I’m surprised it hasn’t been redesigned with some recycled Arquitectonica eyesore.

I hate that Related is building with the old design…its the same thing they’re doing with CasaBella on Biscayne (formerly Auberge Miami). Ensuring a building will look dated before its even completed

Just looking at the renderings, it already looks dated

By dated, you mean circa 2000s boom back when developers built stuff that weren’t exclusively cigarette boxes with juxtaposed balconies, with words like “game changer” and iconic slapped on?

Baccarat Residences is the worst. From 2015… after they fired Pelli. who would would have given us beauty, hired Arqueeftectonica, and then resurrected it ten years later with a brand name stamped on it like they’re trying to compete with Aston Martin.

Sad to see new river and Miami river both losing their working history and becoming a NIMBY yuppie tax hole

All the industrial activity left years ago. All that’s left are junkers clogging up traffic every time bridges need to go up.

So why do they keep increasing the population density and at the same time close down roads in and out of the area. Traffic was already terrible.

This worn out comment is boring.

It has curves, setbacks, and a crown, all staples of good architecture. If that isn’t character, what is? Stacked boxes?

Looks very outdated, very fitting for Broward!

Here go the, muh every building has to be over the top. Name a city where the majority of their buildings look better than this design other than Dubai.

Plenty of reasons we why cant be like Dubai, look at their construction cost, not paying workers, many of their towers arent connected with the sewage system including the Burj and they’re catering to different markets.

I thought it had more to do with the fact that we’re not in the middle of a desert that was nothing until 30 years ago, and economy was not based on oil until tourism.

But boy
Do they pack a punch in architecture style.
You literally have to stop and gawk at the buildings there.
Definitely no boring squares other than the “Frame”

Funny, when every other building proposed for Downtown Miami looks straight from the 1950s, except without the symmetry and proportion.
