Fort Lauderdale Neighborhood Spotlight: Flagler Village
Development is afoot in Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village area. Since the early 2,000s, the area has been gaining popularity among developers with recently built and proposed projects for housing while restaurants, cafes and breweries have been opening up. Namely “FAT Village,” (Flagler Arts and Technology Village), an area within the neighborhood has been a focus as of late. Both Henry’s Sandwich Station debuted earlier this year as well as General Provision, a co-working space nearby.
According to Clarence Woods, Fort Lauderdale Community Redevelopment Agency manage for the Northwest-Progresso-Flagler Heights area, these local and successful businesses are inspiring developers to want to build nearby.
“What’s happening in Flagler is happening naturally, and what we’re looking to do is take advantage of what’s happening to allow that momentum to come northwest and westward in a managed way,” Woods said. “What’s exciting about that is that the area’s been populated and there’s density that’s going to create the need for more goods and services. Developers are talking about commercial development opportunities that would bring in more amenities.”
Woods has shared that there are 13 sizeable projects that lie on the northwest and west sides of Flagler that are scheduled to bring hundreds of residential units to the area as well as mixed-use projects. Here is a quick snapshot at what is coming down the pike:
