New Buildings Reshape Fort Lauderdale’s Skyline

New buildings are springing up in the Fort Lauderdale area and the city’s skyline is taking on a new landscape. Take a look at the various parts of the city and you will notice that cranes have been a part of the views as many new construction projects are flourishing across town.

One of the most significant developments is named 100 Las Olas and it is scheduled to be the tallest tower in Fort Lauderdale at nearly 500 feet.

“Fort Lauderdale is coming into a transformation from the retail standpoint and of course, a residential standpoint,” Peggy Fucci, a real estate strategist, said.

Jack Seiler, Fort Lauderdale Mayor, was recently attending the groundbreaking ceremony for the tower. The development is slated to include a hotel, over 120 residential units as well as 8,500 square feet of retail space. “We’re trying to create a very walkable, livable, 24/7 live, work, play downtown and I think these buildings are helping to deliver that,” Seiler said.

Down the street to the east you will find the next prominent building amidst the changing skyline. Las Olas Condominium Tower is located next to the Federal Highway Tunnel and best of all is conveniently just steps from countless restaurants and shops. An ideal setting where you can access endless entertainment options outside your door without needing to use your car.

Another new project is Gale Residences, Fort Lauderdale Beach. This development is currently in the works and is scheduled for completion in 2018. Perks of this residential tower include nearly 130 units with views of both the beach as well as the intracoastal.

“We’re not trying to be any other city, we’re just trying to be the best city we can be,” Seiler said.
