Fort Partners and Four Seasons celebrate groundbreaking in Fort Lauderdale

Positioned along the Atlantic Ocean and the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, developed by Fort Partners, broke ground on April 30. The development will offer unmatched access to a lifestyle of leading amenities, services, and design and will include 90 Private Residences and 130 guestrooms.

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale will mark 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 in extending the luxury hospitality brand’s presence in South Florida. Homeowners of Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale will have special access as preferred guests to Fort Partners’ portfolio of Four Seasons properties in South Florida.

“We commissioned a team of global minds to create an exemplary hotel and residential property unlike any other in Fort Lauderdale,” acclaims 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.

The 22-story oceanfront property will combine luxury and legendary Four Seasons service for visitors and residents alike. The hotel rooms will reside on the 4th through the 11th floors and the private residences begin on floor five. Of the residential portion, the developer has achieved more than USD 100 million in sales to date, a record in Fort Lauderdale that has elevated fully-serviced residential offerings in the city. The private residences have been sold to an international mix of buyers from across the Americas and Europe.

“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.

Designed by global visionaries

The team is led by Fort Partners’ Founder Nadim Ashi and Principal Ramzi Achi, as well as an internationally-acclaimed design team. Miami-based architect Kobi Karp is the architectural mastermind behind the development. Fernando Wong, one of the most influential landscape designers in America, is the leading landscape architect, which will have one-third of the property devoted to green space. He refers to this landscape design as a “civilized jungle”, using palm trees and native plants on both the ground floor and the third-floor oceanfront pool deck to allow guests to feel an organic vibe. The interior design is led by London-based Tara Bernerd, who was responsible for the building’s full interior architecture.

Living with four seasons

Along with the Hotel, this oceanfront property will also feature 90 residences, which 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 meters) to more than 6,000 square feet (560 square meters). The tallest floors of the building will feature four penthouses and three exclusive Sky Homes with dramatic 20-foot (6-metre) ceilings.

Private residence owners will have access to the full range of services and amenities from the Hotel, a Four Seasons designated residential concierge and director of residences, as well as a butler, spa, and yachting services. Four Seasons pets will also have their very own pet concierge and the development will include a pet boutique and an on-call veterinarian. Private Residences will have a separate building entrance to ensure privacy for all residents.
