Dashboard: PLACE

Downtown Fort Lauderdale's coastal cool vibe complements a blossoming culinary scene as well as thriving arts and cultural experiences. A compact downtown connected to the New River ranks as highly walkable compared to peer cities across the country. Major investment in downtown public spaces are ready to be realized to further enhance the public realm. Linked to Miami and West Palm Beach via Brightline and just minutes from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, DowntownFTL is at the center of a rapidly growing region of 6 million people. Fort Lauderdale is one of the few downtown beach cities in the country, located just two miles from the Atlantic Ocean. This quality of life was recognized in 2022 by PwC's annual Emerging Trends In Real Estate Report where Fort Lauderdale was named a Top 18 Hour City in a peer group with Denver, Charlotte, Salt Lake City, Portland, and Minneapolis. These factors, combined with DowntownFTL's strong focus on residential usage position Fort Lauderdale well for a future where trends like hybrid and remote work are becoming more normalized.
