Experienced design and architectural team starts work on 22-storey oceanfront property.
Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, developed by Fort Partners, will become a destination for Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, offering 90 private residences and 130 guest rooms.
It’s the third collaboration between Four Seasons and Fort Partners, joining Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach and Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club, extending the luxury brand’s presence in South Florida.
The development team is led by Fort Partners’ Founder Nadim Ashi and Principal Ramzi Achi, with interior design led by London-based Tara Bernerd, who was responsible for the building’s full interior architecture. In addition, Martin Brudnizki, a London-based hospitality designer, created the property’s restaurants, lounges and pool areas.
Miami-based architect Kobi Karp is the lead architect behind the development, having worked on projects in the Caribbean, Far East, the Black Sea region and the Middle East.
Finally, Fernando Wong is the leading landscape architect for Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, which will have one-third of the property devoted to green space.
The 22-storey oceanfront property will see hotel rooms reside on the fourth through the 11th floors and the Private Residences begin on floor five. Of the residential portion, the developer has achieved more than $100 million in sales to date, sold to an international mix of buyers from across the Americas and Europe.
Team of Global Minds
“We commissioned a team of global minds to create an exemplary hotel and residential property unlike any other in Fort Lauderdale,” said Nadim Ashi, Founder of Fort Partners. “Four Seasons is defining Fort Lauderdale as a global destination and is capturing an international audience. We are committed to developing a world-class hotel and lifestyle.”
“Four Seasons has a history of entering into markets and setting the standard for luxury lifestyle experiences. This new property will be no exception, and we look forward to opening our doors in the vibrant city of Fort Lauderdale,” says J. Allen Smith, President and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “In partnership with Fort Partners and our team of international design visionaries, every detail – from location to design to amenities – reflects the highest standards of quality and excellence.”
Smith continues, “Four Seasons will manage both the Hotel and Private Residences, delivering our world-class service to guests and to our homeowners on a permanent basis. This is what will set us apart in Fort Lauderdale and will establish this property as the best luxury lifestyle experience in the city.”
The 90 residences will range in size from one to four bedrooms, including furnished and fully appointed as well as unfurnished options. Residences will range from 780 square feet (72 square metres) to more than 6,000 square feet (560 square metres). The tallest floors of the building will feature four penthouses and three exclusive Sky Homes with dramatic 20-foot (6-metre) ceilings.
