South Florida Crane Watch

February 20, 2024

South Florida Business Journal recently updated it’s Crane Watch map to include Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.

Why This Matters:

Both cities are evolving into dynamic places to live, work, and visit. New buildings coming online across South Florida’s urban centers are helping to create more walkable communities full of new amenities.

But with more than 18K units planned in DowntownFTL alone, our urban core has double as many apartments in the pipeline as the entire City of West Palm Beach.

By The Numbers:

Here is how Fort Lauderdale’s citywide development pipeline compares to West Palm Beach’s.

  • Fort Lauderdale is building three times as many apartments and hotel rooms as West Palm Beach.

  • Fort Lauderdale is projected to add 50% more retail and dining space than West Palm Beach.

  • 75% of all planned apartments in Fort Lauderdale are in downtown.

Dive deeper into Crane Watch to learn more about the new projects on the drawing board.
