Wow this developer assembled 7 lots in Flagler Village with a waiver to go from the max 6 stories to a newly requested height of 12.
It’s not a done deal as it still needs to be reviewed by the Development Review Committee, but if I was a betting man, I’d say it’s going to happen one way or the other. Fort Lauderdale is on a building spree, and Flagler Village is absolutely blowing up, but in a good way!
Flagler Village has seen a surge in development as people desire to live near downtown Fort Lauderdale’s job core. What was formerly mostly an industrial neighborhood with a high concentration of low-income housing has transformed into one of the city’s fastest-growing areas, with a pipeline of projects, including this one.
The development would cover 333,094 square feet and include 240 apartments, 1,256 square feet of retail space, and 253 parking spaces. The developer is requesting a waiver to allow for the construction of 12 floors on the property instead of the current six.
The structure would have two live/work units on the ground floor and a pool on the seventh story amenity deck.
The apartments would be 755 square feet on average, with sizes ranging from 480 to 1,181 square feet. A total of 41 studios, 123 one-bedroom units, and 76 two-bedroom units would be available.
Prospect Real Estate Group loves the location because it’s on Sistrunk Boulevard and Third Avenue, across from Peter Feldman Park, as per local attorney Robert B. Lochrie III, who represents the developer in the application.
