Developer Applies To Install 710-Foot Crane To Build Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Residences

Fort Lauderdale’s 43-story Riverwalk Residences appears to be moving forward with construction with several milestones in recent months.

On August 2, an application was submitted to the FAA for approval to install a 710-foot construction crane at the site. A work schedule lists an October 1 start date, lasting 18 months.

On August 4, a separate application was submitted to the FAA for a permanent building height of 493 above ground, or 499 above sea level. That would make the tower among the tallest in Fort Lauderdale.

In June, Gables Residential purchased the property with fully approved plans for $33.16 million.

Records show that a construction permit has been under processing over the past few months, with Kast Construction listed as the contractor.

The total hard construction cost is estimated at $87,974,475.

The project was originally approved in 2017 as a senior living facility.

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

Borges is the architect.

Well, if you guys don’t like it, then don’t read the article, it’s just that simple. That’s like saying you don’t like Japan for example.. if you don’t like Japan, who cares?.. don’t go there!

No it’s more like boarding on a plane to Europe and landing in Japan. The page is called The Next Miami and that is what people come here for. Not Fort Lauderdale.

If you paid for a plane ticket to take you to Europe only without stopping anywhere else, then you have the right to get teed off. But TNM provides you with free information to read so why are you upset with them and their site?

Nothing is free. This site is full of advertising and our presence here allows the site to survive. If we were to stop reading it, then the advertisement would be gone and so would TNM. So yes, they own their readers some consistency and quality content.

“If we were to stop reading”

Now you’re admitting the truth.. you want everyone who reads the articles on this site and doesn’t care about the occasional mention of what’s going on in Ft Lauderdale to join in with you in bashing TNM every time they say anything about our cousins next door.

“I don’t mind it maybe once a month but not daily”

You seem to be full of trivial desires and complaints.

“If we were to stop reading it, then the advertisement would be gone and so would TNM”

Again, TNM makes an occasional mention about something happening in Ft Lauderdale and that has gotten you and others who think like you so butt hurt to the point that you are thinking about abstaining from coming this site altogether?

Okay Karen.

We get 4 articles a day, not 40 or 400. FOUR! We would like them to be about Miami. For instance, the FTX Arena just removed the sign! What’s the deal there? That’s what we come here for.

TNM is a site that’s free to read. Before it, there wasn’t anything in the city that provided you with free development news four times a week.

Amazing the amount of GROWN spoiled people there are in this city.

There’s no such thing as “free”. TNM gets paid through the advertisement and the advertisement is there because of us, the readers.

Really people. Fort Lauderdale is a part of the Miami-Fort Lauderdale metro area. Is this really a controversy?

So glad this project is moving forward, the old 90s looking building on it now is a dump on such a prime location. There’s a bunch of other recently completed project all around it. Going to be a great addition to the riverwalk and skyline.

Covid is ravishing the USA and the world, insurrectionist Trump Storm Troopers are planning to overthrow the government by doing another Capitol Building invasion, and California is burning up, but those things doesn’t worry me. Now TNM posting about some development in Fort Lauderdale.. that really gets me mad and brings out my rage!!!

The Next Miami, please keep posting FTL news whenever they pop up. This comment section ain’t it. It’s not like there’s Fort Lauderdale news every day anyway… It’s also nice to know what’s happening to our neighbors further up the road

If I’m not mistaken, isn’t this a luxury senior housing project? I love seeing the growth of Fort Lauderdale, but considering how young the city is, isn’t this project slightly out of touch with what Fort Lauderdale is trying to become?

I agree with your comment 100%! I think anyone should be able to move into this building once it’s completed. Hopefully they reconsider the age limitations.

Historically, Fort Lauderdale’s problem was it was considered too young as the Spring Break capital. However, I agree we don’t need a vertical God’s waiting room. Gables Residential is a conventional rental community, so it might be built as all ages.

Florida is in the borderline of breaking off of the continental US, because of the much added construction weight, and floating down into the Caribbean and becoming another island—-
