“Aww?” Its a beautiful project in Miami’s neighbor city in the Miami Metro area. Why do people belittle Fort Lauderdale?

Because there’s nothing worse than people who live in Delray Beach saying “yeah I live in Miami”

Delray Beach isn’t near Fort Lauderdale, but having lived in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton which neighbors Delray, I’ve never heard anyone from those cities stating they live in Miami. They don’t even go to Miami. They refer to the metro area simply as South Florida.

Yeah I agree born in Fort Lauderdale here, grew up in Boca Raton…Back in Fort Lauderdale and I never say I am from Miami. Friends of mine from Boca don’t even say they are from anywhere but Boca. People can hate all they want on Fort Lauderdale, but at the end of the day I will take it over Miami 7 days of the week.

typically I find they say I am from “south Florida”, in fact most “americans” don’t want to admit to living in Miami.

Neighborhood rivalry

I like rivalry. Keeps everybody on their toes and accomplishes things with more acceleration.

‘Cause they are trying to be Miami but is failing miserably.

If by “failing to be miami” you mean they are clean, affordable, quiet communities reasonably priced, then yeah, they are failing all the way to the bank.

Half of Broward is miserable, dumpy, dirty, blighted suburbs and has been since I was a kid in the 80s so, uh, no. Not that there’s any reason to shit on FTL, it’s a nice enough place more or less.

When was the last time you drove around Miami? Go from downtown in any direction and you’ll find exactly what you are describing. That’s not the case with Fort Lauderdale.

Uh, yes it is in fact. FTL has miles and miles of miserable ghettoes and that’s before you even get to dumps like Tamarac and Lauderhill and Margate. My point wasn’t that Miami doesn’t have the same issues, it’s that Broward isn’t nicer and that’s just a fact.

Broward IS nicer, but we are not talking about Broward VS. Dade, which is a lost battle. I could rattle off dozens of nicer communities in Broward over anything in Dade County and Miami. Fort Lauderdale is not nearly as blighted as Miami on a city VS. city basis either. I love Miami with its flaws in the face of everything, but it remains inherently the most blighted and dangerous part of South Florida. Drive around for a minute. Research the crime data.

Looks like the FTL defense force is out in full swing! Fort Lauderdale is a nice suburb of Miami

Fort Lauderdale isn’t a suburb and never has been. Perhaps you can call it a satellite city, but even that is historically iffy. Both Miami (Fort Dallas) and Fort Lauderdale were originally outposts during the Seminole War in the 1830s. Both cities grew substantially after Flagler built his railroad.

Miami isn’t really the parent to Fort Lauderdale in a historic sense nor is it as reliant economically as you might think. According to FDOT 124,000 people commute from Broward to Miami-Dade, and 70,000 people commute from Miami-Dade to Broward. That’s 54,000 net commuters out of 2 million total workers.

Fort Lauderdale is also far too urban to call a suburb. It’s one of the most urban areas in Florida!

Who the hell had the genius and suspicious idea of naming this ‘City Centre’, with the British spelling? This project, which seems okay save for the hideous parking pedestal, will forever be unfavorably compared to the adult-sized, nicely designed, open and airy ‘real’ ‘City Centre’. I hope they give it a different name, and do something to the blunt garage outer walls staring at the street.
