A new 30-story apartment tower in downtown Fort Lauderdale hosted a grand opening last week.
Stiles, Greystar and the Rockefeller Group developed the luxury apartment building at 215 Southeast Eighth Avenue, where monthly rents range from upwards of $2,000 to $5,800 for units sized 768 square feet to 2,450 square feet. The rents are above Broward County’s overall average of about $1,600, according to published reports.
Developers said they’re targeting Fort Lauderdale professionals who want big apartments and little home maintenance. Leasing began in January.
The property will tower over a cluster of newer apartment buildings in the Flagler Village area just north of the city’s downtown.
“A lot of what you see is eight-story [buildings] or below, so 30 stories will offer city views, Intracoastal Waterway views and ocean views that are unmatched,” Jeff McDonough, president of Stiles Residential Group, previously told The Real Deal. – Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
