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

The South Florida real estate market is experiencing an unprecedented buying boom fueled by the normalization of work-from-home practices, the idea of a better quality of life near the ocean and as scores of new businesses are relocating here. And developers across Fort Lauderdale and Miami are responding. As inventory has steadily dropped for the last two quarters, pre-construction projects are the next product to see a surge in demand and developers are responding by stepping up progress.

This May, developers at Fort Lauderdale’s Harbors Edge reported a 70% sell-out in just 2 months after launching sales. Related Group’s Solemar is speeding through for a 2021 delivery. And, there’s speculation of a condo property changing hands. Read on for details on these Fort Lauderdale projects and more in our May 2021 condo pre-construction market roundup:

Fort Lauderdale New Construction Projects that Broke Ground

Shortly after launching sales in September 2020, the project is already 80% sold. This first-of-its-kind project brings unmatched views and luxury to Pompano Beach’s quiet waterfront, along with giving residents access to the Related Living app that allows on-demand, completely contactless communication to all amenities and services.

Breezes at Palm-Aire – Pompano Beach

Technically not pre-construction, but given the seller-friendly climate these days we’re keeping an eye on all the properties that could potentially turn up on the pre-construction roll. This May, New York-based Axonic Properties bought 153 of the 288 units in the complex for $25.4 million – that’s more than half the condos on the property for approximately $166,000 per unit.

The 1987 development features one- and two-bedroom units along with a pool and gym. What remains to be seen is whether Axonic will simply flip the units or buy the remaining to make way for a brand-new development.
