All eyes on Fort Lauderdale

Over 300 miles of inland waterways, dubbing the area Venice of America and the Yachting Capital of the World.

Six beaches in Broward County—Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Deerfield, Pompano, Dania, and Lauderdale by the Sea—totaling 23 miles. And they’re all Blue Wave certified by the Clean Beaches Council.

Thousands of upscale restaurants, boutiques, and attractions.

For OneWorld Properties, Fort Lauderdale is an easy sell.

OneWorld is the exclusive broker for two projects in the middle of the action.

PARAMOUNT Fort Lauderdale Beach opened last fall and is nearly sold out. The 18-story tower’s 95 luxurious residences overlook the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Intracoastal Waterway to the west.

100 Las Olas is on the rise downtown. The Kolter Group’s 46-level tower will house 121 residences and 238 Hyatt Centric rooms. At 499 feet, it will be the tallest building in Fort Lauderdale come fall 2019.

The 100 Las Olas team recently hosted a White Party to kick off the 2018 season.

The project was featured in the South Florida Luxury Guide Spring 2018 Real Estate Showcase.

“Living in a central location that allows them to walk to shopping, dining and entertainment is a feature that 100 Las Olas offers,” says OneWorld President and CEO and Fort Lauderdalian Peggy Fucci.

“Also, having a separate hotel component at the base allows our residents to enjoy the benefits of a hotel and still keep their private home environment. Imagine having your guests come to visit but staying just downstairs and meeting at the lobby for a drink right before you walk down the street for dinner. It’s truly an exceptional lifestyle.”

The nearby upcoming All Aboard Brightline station and busy Fort Lauderdale International Airport will make it easy to travel back and forth, she adds.

Peggy says buyers are typically from the Northeast and Midwest buying second homes and empty nesters from South Florida western suburbs looking to downsize.

Fort Lauderdale was just featured on Week 5 of The Bachelor.

The two-hour episode titillated some 6 million viewers with scenes of yachting and jetskiing the famed Intracoastal Waterway and visiting the historic Bonnet House Museum & Gardens, located just north of PARAMOUNT.

“We are absolutely thrilled to share our cosmopolitan and vibrant destination,” according to Stacy Ritter, president and CEO of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, sunny.org.

The contestants stayed at the W hotel on Fort Lauderdale Beach, which just got a $55 million makeover.

Inspired by the show and just in time for Valentine’s Day, the hotel is offering a romantic Can Buy Me Love package.

Another Fort Lauderdale site we recommend checking out is the 45-acre Hugh Taylor Birch State Park where you can go canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding, take a water taxi, go to the beach, go on a Segway tour, bike, and take your kids to a playground.
