New Proposal Submitted To Build Fort Lauderdale’s Tallest Building

A developer has filed plans to build a 600-foot tower in Fort Lauderdale, which would be the tallest ever in the city.

According to plans filed with the Federal Aviation Administration, the new tower would rise 596 feet above ground, or 600 feet above sea level.

Two temporary construction cranes are also set to be installed, at 646 and 647 feet above ground or 650 feet above sea level. The cranes were submitted under a separate application filed for the same site.

Both the crane and permanent tower height applications were submitted on November 11.

The tallest permanent height previously approved by the FAA in Fort Lauderdale is 515 feet above ground, or 519 feet above sea level for the recently completed 100 Las Olas tower. However, the actual roof height of that building is 499 feet, with the remaining height used for a lightning rod.

The project site appears to be land owned by a joint development between Kushner Companies and NYSE-listed Aimco.

Aimco recently paid $25 million for a 51% stake in the property.

The developer also released renderings to investors of a potential Fort Lauderdale development.

According to Aimco, entitlements are in place to build approximately three million square feet, consisting of multifamily homes and commercial space.

Brightline’s station is nearby, allowing easy access to Miami, West Palm Beach, Aventura, Boca Raton, and Orlando.

ODA is the design architect of the new towers.

 

The most recent rendering released by Aimco:

Very interesting design. Might be broward but definitely cooler than most buildings going up in Miami

Esses projetos “diferentes”, que uns amam, outros odeiam, são importantes para compor a diversidade do skyline da cidade, caso contrário, irão predominar os caixotes, que todos abominam.

this building is cooler than most buildings in miami? Monterrey mexico has a couple of skyscrapers that are cooler than most buildings in miami but i don’t think that is nothing to brag about. broward always wants to compete with miami so they should think about having a better skyline but being happy with having just one nice skyscraper is having a mediocre mentality

Having nine out of ten towers a box in Miami and believing you’re better than everyone else because “muh 1000 Museum” isn’t healthy mentality either.

” having nine out of ten towers a box in miami and believing you’re better than any one else is n’t healthy mentality either” i never said or heard any one on this blog say that miami has the best skyline in the world. miami has good and bad buildings but i believe that we have a higher percentage of good buildings than 1 out of 10

In case you haven’t noticed, practically all the high rises – not sky scrapers – in Broward are boxes.

🤣🤣🤣 do people actually think broward and Miami “compete”… people fail to realize Miami broward and west palm are ONE metro region. Growth for one is growth for all but everyone knows Miami is the epicenter. Broward and west palm mostly feed off the residual growth from Miami. This isn’t the 1920-30s when cities were competing to build the tallest buildings for prestige. Cities aren’t competing to build buildings. Cities only set the zoning and have minor design input. Developer are the ones building and I think very few are in it for prestige… they’re in it for profit

Actually, you can’t really compare. Palm Beach County has by far the Wealthiest Cities in the State ( Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Jupiter, Jupiter Island, Gulf Steam, Highland Beach, the list goes on. Most of us NEVER get near Miami. Miami is a complete disaster and will only get worse

Certainly a refined improvement over giant stacked PEZ, although that might have been conceptual.
