Residential Towers Rising 42 & 45 Stories Proposed In Fort Lauderdale, With 716 Units

A developer has submitted plans to build two residential towers in Fort Lauderdale.

Merrimac Ventures is the developer behind the proposal.

Two towers would be built, with the first phase rising 42 stories, or 453 feet, and including 390 rental apartments.

The second phase would rise 45 stories, or 496 feet, and include 326 residential units.

A total of 1,083 parking spaces will be built between the two towers.

The developer told the SFBJ that he is a partner in the Society Las Olas project, and that demand for rental units there is strong, particularly for smaller units.

The second phase will have larger units could be either high-end rental or condos.

A Greyhound bus station on the site of the first phase will need to move, he said.

The project was set for a hearing before the city’s Development Review Committee on April 13.

NBWW is the architect.

That area is tending with brand new apartments and cranes, going to look like a mini brickell soon, but with a barcade called glitch bar

I think this would be the first true skyscrapers in Flagler Village. Across the street, next to the Delmar, the Selo hotel and Condo is now planned at 30 stories. Still have to see what is happening with FAT City development, FAT village Redevelopment, and Searstown redevelopment. Flagler really is happening

The first true skyscraper and it’s hideous. Too bad, because Flagler Village was redeveloped so well with decent architecture at the human scale.

These units are junk. I’m pro development and business and I say keep it coming, but anybody with half way decent money isn’t living in a Flagler village shoe box w/ 32 year old frat bros. Great place to bang Tinder dates 100%. I’ll be at my house on the intercostal 2.5 miles east- value is going through the roof. These rental units going up are like the projects for middle class white people with no savings. FTL is a great place though keep the business coming in!!

YUCK. Fort Lauderdale likes to build very basic looking projects. Hardly any glass exterior.

Please get creative with this project. All the buildings are the same style.

If that’s notable, that could only be because of a lack of tall buildings in Fort Lauderdale.

There is a 500′ height limit in Fort Lauderdale due to flight paths above.

I think he has a fair point. This is called the next Miami so why post things about another city?!

If you scroll down the main page you will notice many projects aren’t in the City of Miami.

He or she can read TNM and whine about what they’re reporting because it’s free. Other than that, you wouldn’t find these complainers on this site.

When you watch local news, is it just Miami-Dade County or is Broward included?

It’s both included, West Palm Beach have their own local news stations.

It’s in Metro Miami. Covering nothing but Miami city limits development is limiting.

Miami by itself INCLUDES all of Greater Miami which encompasses all of Miami-Dade and parts of Broward and Palm Beach counties. Now, if this site was called the Next City of Miami then you’d have a point.

Fort Lauderdale is NOT in Miami and it is NOT part of Miami Coty, Miami Beach or Miami-Dade.

Yeah Miami, always thinking you can go without Broward or Palm Beach. Remember, Miami and Miami-Dade is fairly small in population compared to other metro areas and without the other counties, you are just a city in a jungle.

Look up the Miami metro area…includes Broward and Palm Beach counties, plus this is a site about development so in both regards this is relevant so stop whining.

Nope. This page is about Miami and NOT Fort Lauderdale. Case closed.

If you’re that offended when TNM occasionally does an article about some proposed project in Fort Lauderdale, you can always just stop reading it.
