Fort Lauderdale’s Development Review Committee is scheduled to review a new proposal by ILFC Corp, led by Gonzalo Sanchez, for a mixed-use development named FL-Design, located at 1102 Northwest 6th Street in the Dorsey Riverbend area, on May 28. The project, designed MUVE Architecture to rise four stories to a height of 49 feet, aims to transform a currently vacant 6,342-square-foot lot into a vibrant urban space combining residential and commercial uses. The application is represented by Yanina Mauro of Red Octopus LLC. JCM Consultants, LLC is the civil engineer, and Kimley-Horn is the traffic engineer.

The property, positioned on the southern frontage of NW 6th Street—also known as Sistrunk Boulevard—where it intersects with NW 11th Avenue, was acquired by ILFC Corp from Vacant Land Men LLC in February 2023 for $295,000. The site is designated Lot 2 of Block 3 within the Tuskegee Park subdivision.

The proposed development will provide pedestrian access from NW 6th Street, complemented by vehicular access through an adjacent alley. The ground floor is designed to include 585 square feet of commercial space at the forefront, followed by an innovative parking solution. This includes 9 double parking spaces equipped with an elevator system to optimize space, allowing for 18 stacked parking spaces, plus an additional 3 independent parking spaces, totaling 21 spaces.

A mezzanine level above will offer flexible space suitable for various functions, enhancing the building’s utility. The upper two floors will house 10 residential units, offering diverse living options to cater to the community’s needs. This development seeks to enrich the neighborhood by integrating commercial and living spaces within a thoughtfully designed urban setting.

Kimley-Horn conducted a trip generation analysis for the proposed development. The analysis indicates that the project is expected to generate fewer than 1000 daily trips, with less than 20% of this traffic occurring during peak hours. These figures fall below the thresholds set by the City of Fort Lauderdale’s traffic study requirements.
