Ft. Lauderdale apartment tower gets green light

September 9, 2017 by  

A new high rise building has been approved in Ft. Lauderdale.

Featuring a grocery store on the ground floor, the new building will be at 212 SE Second Avenue, and will be close to the Wave rail system. This will give both downtown workers and residents easy access to a grocery store without needing a car.

Currently, there is no grocery store in that segment of the urban core. Previously, a supermarket was open within the Hyde Park Market, but that area is now a condo site.

Stiles Corp is the builder in place for the new apartment tower, and the project won unanimous approval from the City Commission in Fort Lauderdale. The tower is expected to house almost 350 units, with an office tower being constructed directly south of the new building.

Ft. Lauderdale is experiencing a building boom, according to the Sun Sentinel paper, and the 27 floor tower is just one example of this. Development rules changed in the 1990s, causing new buildings to favor projects that are both tall and dense. More than 15,000 units have been constructed since that change, with more than 3,000 in the pipeline for approval.

New apartment towers often use banner printing as a technique to alert potential residents of openings, as well as advertising during construction phases. To learn more about the project, contact the Stiles Corp.
