Fort Lauderdale’s New and Pre-Construction Condo Update: August 2021

Sep 01, 2021 September 01, 2021

The luxury real estate market in South Florida is booming at an unprecedented scale -- and developers across Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami are keenly tuned in. With more out-of-towners choosing to settle down by the sea, the $1 million-plus condo market has been growing exponentially. This has developers rushing to secure every prime parcel of land they can find, replacing older buildings, and stepping up efforts on new projects.

This August, New Jersey-based developer U.S. Construction, and Icon Realty Capital, both secured financing for their waterfront condo projects. Both projects are scheduled to replace older buildings in the area, in sync with the trend we’re seeing across Miami and Miami Beach. On the other hand, the high-end, boutique 160 Marina Bay has already broken ground in Fort Lauderdale, all geared for its 2022 delivery.
