New York Developer Proposes Another New Tallest In Fort Lauderdale, With 830 Apartments

Plans have been submitted for yet another Fort Lauderdale tower that is taller than any existing building in the city.

The new tower is planned at 633 SE 3rd Avenue, with:

  • 830 multifamily units
  • 12,798 square feet of commercial use
  • 951 parking spaces, in a 10-level garage

The top off height of the roof is planned at 530 feet, with the top of structure planned at 563 feet.

No name has been given yet for the development.

ODA Architecture is designing the tower.

Dependable Equities is the developer.

A hearing before Fort Lauderdale’s Development Review Committee is planned September 13.

For those who prefer to live in Miami’s shadow because they’re too afraid to actually be a part of it.

Maybe that’s why the buildings are taller in Miami? So they can look north to better places.

No, in the real world it’s because of height limits due to airport closeness and zoning

DT FTL resident here. This is great! The south side of the river is honestly pretty bleak. All the redevelopment downtown has primarily been on the north side. This area looks like it did 20 years ago. A bunch of surface parking lots, and old office buildings with “for lease” signs in the windows. Will be interesting to see this one go through the approval process because a lot of FTL’s nimbys live in the adjacent residential neighborhoods.

At least their not owned by a local community college who has no intention to sell or lease for development, and lets historic structures become dilapidated. Broward College redeveloped one of their old properties quite well.

Nice building but a weird location for it. Its pretty far south of the main downtown action in an area that is mostly courts and bail bondsman. A building like this on the river would do well.

I currently live South. I actually like it its much calmer.. Less traffic and still a short walk to get across the river

A former tallest tower is on this side of the river. Who knows, maybe the south side will surpass what historically was downtown on the north side, like a certain other city?

The amount of negativity in these comments is so… embarrassing. Think of something more productive to do with your time. South Florida as a whole is growing at a tremendous pace, and we should embrace positive change while making sure the fabric of our neighborhoods is not eroded away.

I welcome a project of this design and scale, though not every new development needs to be the “tallest.” Looking forward to seeing how this area south of the river will evolve in the next 5, 10, 20 years.

The building has nice aesthetics and it’s nice that Ft Lauderdale is allowing such projects south of New River as opposed to north of it. Hopefully in the near future, Ft Lauderdale can grow into a major city similar to Miami!

The amount of tall buildings is not what makes a major city. Its economic output and cultural cache are what does. Los Angeles is huge without a large number of high rises. Without Broward County or the Palm Beaches, Miami would not be a major city. Miami is just a piece of a more significant metro area that includes hundreds of cities.

Nice building model; however, that area at the south of downtown Fort Lauderdale, is not the best area to live. Actually it’s not a nice area, and its neighborhoods are not the best. I would not invest in that area.

Developers are thinking ahead.. Remember when no one would touch Flagler Village… Now it’s become expensive.. Same thing may happen here… Related and others I think also propose building south

Our city of Fort Lauderdale is definitely changing. I have witnessed it over the past 10 years in photos and even longer living between here and Miami. Ricardo I hear your message and I would say that things are definitely changing on the south side. There’s really just not a lot happening It’s not a bad neighborhood it’s an evolving neighborhood. The TREAD District It’s just a hop skip and a jump from this location and the new federal courthouse will also be one block two blocks south. For all of you next Miami haters of Fort Lauderdale… Why don’t we look at our three beautiful cities as cities that are connected. We can’t all live in Miami and have a job in Miami. Many will have to commute via Brightline or Tri-Rail And sooner than you think maybe the tri-rail commuter link along the brightline corridor. We all need to just get along and appreciate things for what they are and if you don’t like something do your part talk to your commissioners talk to your city and make things happen let’s work together peace out.

If you contrast it to any neighborhoods adjoining downtown Miami, there’s nothing wrong with the area south of Downtown Fort Lauderdale. It’s quiet, but far from being the worst area anywhere in South Florida.

The living downtown thing only works when there’s a large concentration of high paying jobs centered in the downtown. Neither Miami nor Ft. Lauderdale have that. The ratio of condos to office towers is like literally 10 to 1. That won’t work.

Downtowner

It’s a shame that Ft. Lauderdale is trying to emulate Miami by allowing construction of this kind. It would be better to create more of an alternative to Miami, with rowhouses, low-rise condos, townhouses, etc.
