New York Developer Submits Plans For Twin-Tower Ombelle In Fort Lauderdale

A New York developer has submitted plans to build a massive twin-tower apartment project in Fort Lauderdale called Ombelle.

Ombelle is proposed to include:

  • 1,100 apartments
  • 11,217 square feet of commercial/retail
  • 1,100 parking spaces, in a 9-story podium mostly lined with residential

The developer told the SFBJ that the units would be premium rental apartments, with a condo-like experience and large amenity spaces.

Both towers are proposed to rise 43 stories, with the top of the structures at 525 feet above ground and a roof height of 493 feet above ground

Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale station is around a ten minute walk from the project site.

Dependable Equities is the developer.

New York’s ODA is the architect.

The project is scheduled for a hearing before Fort Lauderdale’s Development Review Committee on May 24.

The building itself is stunning! The one thing I would change are the balcony guard railing. I personally think glass panels would finish it perfectly!

It would be nice if there were all evenly spaces and lined up, too. It detracts from the sleekness and massing, and looks like two blobs.

Why the railings? Glass adds more definition and minimal design to the building but overall it’s pretty good

Wait for a drought in, Florida. Putting too many buildings here. We will have droughts normal at times.

Interesting buildings. I think it would look a lot less busy if they simply had wrap around balconies instead of this random placement. Mixed with the vertical slits and twisting, a lot going on here.

Last night I went to enjoy myself with a night out on south Miami Beach but had to scrap that and go back home because I couldn’t find somewhere to park.

Not finding somewhere to park on south beach is like NIMBY terrorism imo …

Fort Lauderdale used to be beautiful. Now it us endless concrete, people, traffic, stress and misery. Paradise ruined.

Disagree. Hope they continue building. Fort Lauderdale shouldn’t be a sleepy town. There are plenty of places in Florida for that. Think of FTL as a whiter and gayer version of Miami.

The Strip on Fort Lauderdale, Beach, use to be run down in the mid-80’s and in the past years new motels/ Hotels developers have really done a marvelous job in the area, voting in the right people helps control traffic and brings in tourists to the area.

It would have elegance if the balconies lined up. Simplicity? Sorry, but Missoni Baia is boring.

Just what fort Lauderdale needs. More traffic, more stress on aging sewer and water infrastructure.

I love the preponderance of positive comments no doubt posted by bots and paid promoters of the project.

I was at the city commission meeting when this mega ploink was proposed to a mostly disbelieving audience.

Wake up city of Fort Lauderdale. This is not a good direction for our city.

There’s people that get paid to post comments here? Do you really believe this? If you follow construction, than you would know these projects pay for the sewer projects. It’s NIMBYs like you that have no idea how a city works that ruins it for the rest of us.

TNM covers multiple municipalities including Miami Beach, Aventura, Coral Gables, Fort Lauderdale, Sunny Isles, etc. If you don’t like it go somewhere else.

Guys as much as you want to make it tri-county, I don’t see why Broward cannot have a separate TNM, like TNB for The Next Broward. No point in getting upset because we want to concentrate on what’s happening in Miami-Dade.
