The developers have started leasing units at a 30-story luxury apartment building in  downtown Fort Lauderdale called Amaray Las Olas, scheduled to open in spring.

Monthly rents generally range from $2,000 to $5,800 for apartments that range in size from 768 to 2,450 square feet.

The rents are higher than Broward County’s overall average of $1,553, according to L. Keith White, president of Reinhold Wolff Economic Research in Oakland Park.

But White told the Sun-Sentinel premium rents for luxury apartments near downtown night life have become the norm: “It’ s to be expected. It’s not unusual anymore.”

The Rockefeller Group and  a division of Stiles Corporation are the developers of Amaray Las Olas at 215 Southeast 8 Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. They have opened  a leasing center at 790 East Broward Boulevard.

Amaray’s amenities will include a coffee bar, yoga studio, swimming pool, billiard lounge, dog spa and dog park.

The developers of Amaray are targeting professionals in Fort Lauderdale who want big apartments and little home-maintenance duty.

Dog Eagon, president of Stiles, told the Sun-Sentinel: “It’s amazing how many people I talk to who feel exactly that way.” [Sun-Sentinel]  Mike Seemuth
