Fort Lauderdale to Consider 456 Residential Units Downtown

The Las Olas Co. has proposed building 456 residential units in two buildings along Federal Highway in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but the site would likely be sold to another developer.

The city’s Development Review Committee will meet on Oct. 25 to consider the site plan for the projects at 116 and 200 S. Federal Highway. The applicant is Las Olas Co., a longtime local developer led by President Michael Weymouth that has owned the land for more than three decades. A spokesperson for the company said the real estate would be sold to another developer for the projects.

The application lists the builder of the project as Orlando-based apartment developer ZOM USA. An official at ZOM USA couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. It was designed by architect CallisonRTKL with Architectural Alliance Landscape.

The overall project would be called Las Olas Walk. It would be north of Las Olas Boulevard, home to many restaurants, retailers, office buildings and residential towers.

The larger building would have 329 residential units at the northeast corner of Federal Highway and Southeast 2nd Street, where Las Olas Co. owns about 2.09 acres. The furniture store built in 1950 would be demolished. The new 8-story building would total 385,076 square feet, including 319,342 square feet of residential. It would include a pool on the ground floor.

The 1.38-acre site at the southeast corner of Federal Highway and Southeast 2nd Street would have 127 residential units and a 656-space parking garage. The 8-story building would total 342,567 square feet, with 128,721 square feet of that dedicated to residential space. The units would range from efficiency sized to three bedrooms. There would be an amenity terrace on the top floor. Residential units line the perimeter of the garage to improve its appearance from the street level.

Scaled Back Galleria Mall Re-design Project Still Large at $750 Million

Keystone-Florida Property Holding Corp. has further scaled back its redevelopment plans for the Galleria mall in Fort Lauderdale, but it would still be a large project valued at more than $750 million.

On Oct. 19, the city’s Planning and Zoning Board will consider the application for Live Galleria, a rezoning of the 35-acre site at 2414 E. Sunrise Blvd. The new buildings would be built on the surface parking lots around the existing mall.

The developer has proposed 1,250 residential units, 47,251 square feet of new retail space, 18,700 square feet of new restaurants, 12,362 square feet of community event facilities and eight acres of open community space. The developer would build parking garages to replace the surface lots, leading to 1,360 new spaces.

By comparison, the original Galleria redevelopment plan had 1,640 residential units, a hotel, significantly more retail space, and office space. The revamped proposal has no hotel or offices.

The tallest building in the new proposal would be 285 feet. It would have seven new buildings, with all of them containing some residential, including three towers, built in three phases.

The designers of the Live Galleria are Adache Group Architects, TBG Partners, and Perkins + Will. The developers are represented by attorney Stephen Tillbrook of GrayRobinson and Courtney Crush of Crush Law.

“We have listened carefully to the community’s input and have revised the original redevelopment plan for Live Galleria several times accordingly,” said Peter Flotz, managing member of FLL Development Enterprise, one of the developers. “In its current form, the proposed plan will deliver an innovative, walkable, environmentally-friendly and interactive community which will transform the existing Galleria mall and be an asset to Fort Lauderdale.”

Many traditional malls around the country have been exploring ways to maximize their real estate as retailers deal with competition from online retailers and more entertainment-oriented destinations.

Live Galleria could generate more retail traffic by building residential on the property. It also aims to invite the public in with more pedestrian space, such as a linear park looping around the property, outdoor fitness equipment, a yoga area, a dog park, two welcome plazas, and a rooftop garden.

Keystone would also fund $24.1 million in multi-modal improvements to deal with traffic, such as redesigned streets, improved signal timing, turn lane enhancements, better pedestrian paths, new bicycle parking stations, and new bus shelters.

Once the three-phase project is completed in 2015, it would generate 476 a.m.trips and 697 p.m. trips, according to the developer’s traffic study.
