The Development Review Committee of the City of Fort Lauderdale is now reviewing proposals for 2025 East Sunrise Boulevard, a 15-story commercial building near Victoria Park and Lake Ridge neighborhoods. The development would rise on a vacant 18,949-square-foot lot west of the Middle River, bound by the East Sunrise Boulevard bridge crossing into Coral Ridge on the south and the East Point Towers residential complex on the north and west along North Federal Highway. The project is designed by Jose L. Gomez of Miami-based Beilinson Gomez Architects and being developed by Sunrise 2025 LLC, planned to yield 132 hotel units with 108 parking spaces.
Newly revealed renderings depicts the 147-foot-tall structure designed in the modern contemporary architectural style, resembling the concept of a modular building with multiple hanging terraces enclosed in floor-to-ceiling sized glass, protruding from a mostly orthodox rectangular superstructure. The 5-story base of the building takes a similar approach, designed to hide the parking garage with cube-like forms arranged like a checker board and sealed in with vertical metal louvers for aesthetic purposes. The exposed concrete core is visible running down the middle of the structure, while the entrance is enclosed in an aluminum impact resistant storefront with clear glass. The remaining concrete walls will be smooth down with a light grey or white stucco finish. Mechanicals and the parapet atop the structure will add 12-feet from the rooftop, bring the total height to approximately 159-feet.
All of the lodging units will be arranged to fit a King-sized beds, ranging from 385 to 635-square-foot dens, 600 to 675-square-foot studios, and 820 to 920-square-foot one and two bedrooms, all with access to common terraces and private balconies. Rooftop amenities include a landscaped pool deck with seating and cabanas. There will also be a restaurant on the 14th floor.
