A Site Plan Level III application for a 12-story mixed-use development at 730 Northeast 4th Avenue in downtown Fort Lauderdale was officially submitted for review on November 14. The 163-foot-tall structure would include 77 multifamily residential units and 1,682 square feet of commercial space. The developing entity is 730 NE 4th Avenue LLC – an affiliate of West Long Branch, NJ-based entities Albo Group, LLC, and TRL PROPERTY USA LLC, with MODE Architects as the architect. Flynn Engineering Services, P.A., serves as the civil engineer/land planner, EcoPlan as the landscape architect, and DC Engineers as the traffic consultant.

Located in the vibrant Flagler Village neighborhood, the project strategically occupies a position south of NE 8th Street, on the eastern side of NE 4th Avenue, just a stone’s throw from Federal Highway. Flagler Village, known for its lively urban atmosphere, has rapidly evolved into a desirable destination in Fort Lauderdale.

This development aligns seamlessly with the RAC-UV (Urban Village) District zoning, designed to complement the RAC-CC district by fostering a diverse mix of uses, with a particular emphasis on housing for the Downtown RAC. The project’s design is meticulously considered in response to these zoning criteria. The ground floor, facing NE 4th Avenue, is designed to host an active streetscape featuring a residential lobby and 1,682 square feet of commercial space. This commercial area is intended to accommodate a neighborhood ‘Bodega’ and a compact gym that will be accessible to both residents and the local community. Drawing inspiration from the neighboring multi-family development to the south, Village Place, the project aims to elevate the overall streetscape experience.

A distinctive feature of this project is its unique tower design. Characterized by rounded balconies, extensive glazing with horizontal banding, and architectural elements designed to captivate, the development seeks to make a notable visual impact on the downtown Fort Lauderdale skyline. This design ethos harmonizes seamlessly with the urban neighborhood character area (DMP), adding to the visual allure of the locality.

Parking requirements are thoughtfully addressed, with 106 valet parking spaces in a fully enclosed, fully automatic garage. Including liner units ensures the parking garage remains concealed from public view, contributing positively to the project’s aesthetics. Furthermore, all service activities will be confined within the project, ensuring a seamless and unobtrusive experience for residents and the neighborhood.

The developer is pursuing a Site Plan Level III application for a ‘conditional use’ process per ULDR (Unified Land Development Regulations). This process allows for specific height allowances as permitted by the ULDR. At the same time, the development will carefully adhere to all other code requirements, ensuring a project that integrates seamlessly with the local environment and enriches the community.
