The developers of the Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale are hoping some star power will help them sell a penthouse for what would be a record price in the Broward County city.

Fredrik Eklund of Douglas Elliman’s Eklund-Gomes team was hired to list the penthouse, a five-bedroom, six-bathroom unit with 19,000 square feet of indoor and exterior space. The penthouse is the most expensive residential listing in Fort Lauderdale.

“I like to set records, what can I say?” Eklund said. “All jokes aside, there hasn’t really been anything like this in Miami, in Fort Lauderdale. There’s hardly anything like this in New York or L.A. either.”

Eklund-Gomes opened an office in Miami Beach last year.

The Fort Lauderdale unit will have a 7,000-square-foot rooftop with a pool and putting green, a fitness center, home theater and wine-tasting space with temperature-controlled storage. Tara Bernerd designed the penthouse. Eklund is listing the unit with his business partner John Gomes, and Pietro Belmonte, who is also on their team. The project is expected to be delivered next year.

The penthouse will have more than 12,000 square feet of interior space, which means the price comes out to over $2,900 per square foot. Eklund called it a “mansion on top of a five-star hotel.”

Fort Partners is developing the 22-story oceanfront luxury condo and hotel development at 525 North Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard. In December, Fort Partners closed on a $210 million construction loan for the project from Madison Realty Capital, a New York-based construction lender.

When completed, the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences will include 148 guest rooms and 83 condos ranging in size from one- to four-bedrooms. Prices start at about $4 million.

Amenities include two pools with luxury cabanas, a beach butler service, a spa and yachting services.

Nearby, the Related Group, Fortune International Group and the Fairwinds Group developed the two-tower waterfront Auberge Beach Residences & Spa, which set new records for condo sales in Fort Lauderdale.

Fort Partners also built the Four Seasons Residences at the Surf Club in Surfside. Buyers there include former Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula, developer Richard LeFrak, and billionaire real estate and casino tycoon Neil Bluhm.
