Plans Submitted To Build Fort Lauderdale’s Tallest Tower Ever Next To Brightline

Plans have been filed to build what would become the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale:

The tower, currently known as 200 West Broward Blvd., is proposed to rise 48 floors. The top design element will reach a height of 580 feet above ground, or 587 feet above sea level.

200 West Broward Blvd. is proposed to include:

  • 381 residential units
  • 180,259 square feet amenity/storage/service
  • 7,527 square feet commercial
  • 434 parking spaces, in a 9.5-level podium

Brightline’s tracks are adjacent to the property, and the Fort Lauderdale station is around a 5 minute walk.

Aimco and Kushner Companies are the developers.

Adache Group is the architect.

Fort Lauderdale’s Design Review Committee is scheduled to review the proposal at a meeting today (July 26).

Ft. Lauderdale is on fire. Happy to see growth in the whole metropolitan area of Miami

The Next Miami does an excellent job covering so many exciting Miami projects! For those of you hating on occasional stories related to FTL or WPB just read the header of this page The Next Miami could mean many different things. For someone like myself who has covered Fort Lauderdale developments nearly 10 years now it’s an honor to even have one of our usually dismal projects even mentioned up against the spectacular and iconic buildings and developments your city gets. Just a thought.

This is a website about Miami and we only get 4 articles a day for 4 days a week. We just don’t like seeing them wasted on places that are not in Miami as it makes the website nonsensical and it gives us less relevant content in relation to what this website is about. You can call names and make assumptions all you want but that speaks more about your character than anyone else’s.

This website is about development in the greater Miami area. Obviously. Hence the Broward articles. Don’t like it? Start another website.

The Fort Lauderdale Airport is not the Miami International Airport either but many, many people fly into Fort Lauderdale’s Airport (sometimes including me) to go to Miami. If you don’t want to read an article about Fort Lauderdale on this website, then just skip the article. And believe me, there will be times when this website shut down because there isn’t enough development news to report on.

I look at all the cities in appropriate venues. I wouldn’t read the New York Post to see what’s happening in Miami just like I wouldn’t read The Next Miami to see what’s happening in Tampa or Fort Lauderdale. Personally I am happy for the growth of Fort Lauderdale, I just don’t see what’s that got to do with this website. Is it so hard to understand?

Development blogs usually focus on metro areas and not specific municipalities – NYC development blogs will also cover Jersey City, for example. It doesn’t matter that it’s In another state; the two cities are closely linked, so it’s relevant.

Similarly, FTL is just a 35 minute train ride north and is intrinsically linked to Miami; with residents and commuters in both.

It makes perfect sense for a greater Miami-area development blog to cover major developments in our sister city.

Why this enrages readers of this blog to the point of furiously commenting in ALL CAPS every time one of these articles is posted is frankly more indicative of their intelligence (or lack there of) lack of curiosity, and ignorance than anything else.

Oh boy

The title of website is in all caps too… also if you want to call people ignorant, at least spell it correctly😝 it’s *thereof (one word not two).

Personally I don’t care if this blog covers Fort Lauderdale but by reading the reasons why people are upset, I can understand whomever made these comments. In the end, rents are going up and we soon won’t be able to live in either city so who cares, soon we’ll get to read the Next Wichita or something.

If Miami and FtL both keep growing at their current rate then we’ll probably get a twin cities thing going like in Minnesota.

Revolution will see its day eventually, but this proposal doesn’t affect it. Look closely and this is only being built on the parking lot to to the North.

Can we talk about how boring this tower is for Fort Lauderdale’s tallest instead of complaining about an article outside of Miami? I mean, it’s not a bad building, but hopefully won’t stay the tallest for too long.

The tower portion looks good but I don’t get the podium or why they went with straight balconies when the rest are undulating. Either way, good for FT!

It’s all Miami-land, I don’t care what Broward Boosters say Miami is the center of gravity of this region and the only reason they’re relevant is because they ride on our coattails. Everything they do will always be in relation to Miami. If they grow its because Miami is growing faster. If they get a train its because people want to get to Miami faster. If their airport grows its because people want to visit Miami and need a cheaper alternative.

Good for them.

Just wait until you hear that this train is supposed to connect three of Florida’s largest metro areas. Gasp! The train is not solely focused on Miami, but also Orlando and Tampa? The horror!
