Fort Lauderdale To Consider Condos At Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six, New Hotel

Written by on 09.08.15 in MultiFamily, Office, Retail - No comments

Fort Lauderdale officials will review two major development proposals on Tuesday, the addition of condos and office space to the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six and a dual-branded hotel downtown.

The city’s Design Review Committee will provide comment on both projects, but it’s up to the city council to determine their fate at a later time.

Two condo towers could rise near the marina at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six. The existing hotel is at left.


Located at 2301 S.E. 17 Street, the Pier Sixty-Six is owned by LXR Luxury Resorts, an affiliate of the Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX). It filed a plan to amend a previous application to build condos and office along the marine of the 22.7-acre site. The number of condos would increase from 42 to 58 and they would also grow significantly larger, as the previous plan had all three-bedroom units and the new proposal has 40 four-bedroom units and the rest three bedrooms.

In addition, the proposed office space was increased by 25 percent to 22,000 square feet. It would build 4,000 square feet of first floor retail in the towers.

LXR would demolish the dockmaster building and build five structures: two 11-story condo towers, a four-story office/retail building, a three-story parking garage with some mixed uses, and a two-story valet parking garage. The plan would add 234 parking spaces to the property.

CRE Architects designed the plan. LXR is represented in the application by B. Scott Lamont of EDSA.

Philadelphia-based Wurzak Hotel Group submitted an application showing a dual-branded hotel called the Tribute/Element Downtown Fort Lauderdale. It was designed by Sol-Arch.

The plan calls for 323 hotel rooms, totaling 185,351 square feet, 10,897 square feet of retail, 198 parking spaces and an amenity deck with a pool. It would rise 24 stories. It would be located at 299 N. Federal Highway, a 33,540-square-foot site that an affiliate of Wurzak Hotel Group bought for $12 million in July.

Kolter Hospitality Group also plans to build a hotel downtown.
