Miami-based real estate development and construction firm Cymbal DLT Companies closed on a $32 million loan from 3650 REIT that will allow it to officially prepare for the groundbreaking of its highly anticipated billion-dollar Downtown Fort Lauderdale Riverwalk district project. The first phase of the project, Riverwalk Raintree Residences, is slated to break ground on its first building in the summer of 2023. It will include two eco-friendly, mixed-use multifamily apartment towers of 28 stories and 29 stories by acclaimed architecture firm Jo Palma + Partners comprising a combined 677 residential units and 21,000 square feet of commercial space. The second phase will include an Arquitectonica-designed branded condominium tower, a branded full-service hotel, a branded yacht valet and yacht club, membership clubs, and significant food and beverage operations, which will be announced next year.
Raintree Riverwalk Residences
The Planning and Zoning Board of Fort Lauderdale has unanimously approved site plans for Raintree Riverwalk Residences, a two-towered mixed-use development of 28 and 29 stories anticipated to break ground this summer within a 2.42-acre site encompassing the addresses 408 Southwest 4th Street and 403 Southwest 3rd Avenue in the Tarpon River neighborhood. The project is located on the south bank of the New River, bound by Southwest 4th Court on the South, the Esplanade On The River condominium to the West and the South Florida Boat Club to the East. Designed by PALMA and developed by Cymbal Development led by real estate developer Asi Cymbal, the development will yield 677 residential units, 21,000 square feet and 1,075 parking spaces.
Fort Lauderdale has seen an influx of construction projects come to life in recent years; a construction boom cycle so to say. And developers have wasted no time in taking advantage of lucrative opportunities to build as the migration of people to South Florida has created favorable real estate market conditions.
