Icon Las Olas is going vertical in Fort Lauderdale.
Developer Related Group decided to build the project without selling any of the 272 units. The 45-story tower is being as a rental project, but could later be switched over to condos.
At 455 feet, it would barely beat out Las Olas River House for the title of the city’s tallest tower by just three feet.
Completion is scheduled for late 2016 or early 2017. A residential tower had first been proposed for the site in 1999, but was delayed for years due to opposition from some in the city.
Sieger Suarez is the architect. Moss & Associates is the contractor.
