Fort Lauderdale’s Design Review Committee on Tuesday will consider plans to build a 2.3 million-square-foot, mixed-use development along South Andrews Avenue with apartments, hotel rooms, offices and retail stores.

The three-building development, called Southside City Centre, would be built on a 3.32-acre city block just south of the New River along Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale.

The owner of the property has a contract to sell it to Southside River LLC, managed by Kevin J. Reilly in Miami. Attorney Robert Lochrie represents Southside River LLC.

Two existing office buildings on the one-block property would be demolished. The property  address is 519, 529 and 597 South Andrews Avenue and 518 and 532 Southwest 1 Avenue.

The developer would build two 43-story buildings with a total of 879 apartments and a 35-story, 330-room hotel. The designer of the development is Dorsky Yue International.

Each building would have office and retail space, plus a pool deck and such amenities as club rooms and exercise facilities. The planned development also would include a parking garage with 1,695 spaces. [South Florida Business Journal] Mike Seemuth
