The tallest building in Fort Lauderdale is officially 100 Las Olas.
At 499 feet and 46 levels, the tower recently topped off.
We marked the momentous event Jan. 23 at the nearby NSU Art Museum downtown.
“We are the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale so you may want to get a piece of that now,” said OWP President and CEO Peggy Olin. “We encourage you to come visit us and see really what the views are from there which are amazing.”
Kolter Urban is the developer of the modern building, which will offer 113 luxury condominiums. Sixty have been released, half of which have sold. The luxury residences are two- and three-bedrooms plus den starting from the $800,000s.
“It’s going to be the first luxury residential project in over a decade,” said Ed Jahn, senior VP of Kolter Urban. “Walkability is so great in this area–it’s one of the nicest features that our residents that are buying a condo and also staying in the hotel will experience.”
Downtown is downstairs.
“We are delivering exactly what we promised, and that is something Kolter across their portfolio has done over and over again. We’re very proud to work with them and represent them on this property,” Peggy adds.
“This is the kickoff of really the entire revitalization of what Las Olas is going to offer from all the restaurants and the shopping and really now you have the opportunity of buying something.”
Fort Lauderdale Vice Mayor Ben Sorensen was pleased to attend the topping-off event.
“We’re going to be investing over $200 million into our stormwater service,” he said. “We’re going to be redoing all of Las Olas from Andrews here all the way to the beach, massive upgrades in terms of walkability, the landscaping, the streetscape, so now is the time to invest in Fort Lauderdale because it’s only going up.”
He also spoke of the partnership driving the city forward.
“For the first time ever we’ve had Broward County, the City of Fort Lauderdale, businesses, service providers address our homeless population,” he said, referring to a downtown encampment that was located just north of the museum.
“We moved all those folks into housing with case manager support,” he said to applause. “It’s doing it with compassion.”
Above the 238-room Hyatt Centric hotel, 100 Las Olas’ 16th floor amenities include a resort-style pool, hot tub area, day cabanas, fitness center, private workout rooms, club room, and new and notes lounge.
100 Las Olas is slated to be complete this year.
The sales gallery is open from 10-6 Monday-Friday and 12-5 Saturday-Sunday at 200 E. Olas Blvd., Suite 150, 954-800-6263, onehundredlasolas.com.
