Chicago-based real estate developer Fifield Companies (Fifield) has filed plans for a 48-story mixed-use project at 109 Northeast 2nd Street in Fort Lauderdale’s Downtown Core. Designed by Cohen Freedman Encinosa & Associates Architects (CFE Architects) with landscape design by Rhett Roy Landscape Architecture and Kimley-Horn serving as the civil engineer, the 495-foot-tall structure is proposed to yield 400 residential units, 4,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and an 8-story garage with 514 parking spaces. Units would come in a mix of 37 studios, 179 one-bedroom, 182 two-bedroom, and 2 three-bedroom floor plans spanning 520 to 1,540 square feet with an average unit scope of 909 square feet. The Development Review Committee (DRC) of Fort Lauderdale will consider plans for the project on December 13.
Plans are underway for Radius at Sawgrass, a 32-acre mixed-use community in Broward County, Florida. The venture, estimated to cost more than $400 million to finish, will offer 750,000 square feet of office space, 50,000 square feet of commercial space, and 750 residences.
Veteran real estate executive Jonathan Landau recently announced the launch of his new venture, Landau Properties, a family-owned firm that will develop, acquire and operate properties in New York, South Florida, and Boston. Landau will be joined by his daughter and son-in-law, Yaeli and DC Lowinger, and the company will begin construction on its first residential development next year.
Kolter Group hopes to move forward with Antillia, a townhome development near Florida City. The South Florida Business Journal reports that homes will range from 1,338 square feet to 1,815 square feet each. The project will offer 563 residences.
Fort Lauderdale’s new tallest building could soon join the existing crop of skyscrapers in the Downtown area. A November 30 filing with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) shows a review is now in progress for 633 Southeast 3rd Avenue, a 47-story mixed-use high-rise building planned for a 1.7-acre assemblage located between Southeast 6th Court and Southeast 7th Street, in the Rio Vista neighborhood south of the New River. Designed by ODA New York, led by architect and owner Eran Chen, and developed by Brooklyn, NY-based real estate developer Dependable Equities, the proposed sculptural tower is planned to yield 1,099,811 square feet of space, including 830 residential units, 12,798 square feet of commercial space, and a 9-story parking garage for 951 vehicles integrated into the podium. Flynn Engineering is serving as the civil engineer, and Witkin Hults + Partners is the landscape architect. Approval from the FAA could make this building the next tallest building in Fort Lauderdale and the first to reach the 600-foot mark.
