Auberge Builds for the Fort Lauderdale Community

If you have driven down AIA in the last year along Fort Lauderdale beach from Lauderdale by The Sea past the Pelican Grand Hotel to where AIA intersects with Sunrise Boulevard, you surely would have noticed the two newest residential towers going up directly on the beach. This massive 450 acres oceanfront development site is the world-class Auberge condominium property. In the last 18 years Fort Lauderdale Beach has only had a handful of residential condominiums built directly on ocean frontage. Auberge is the latest. There are two towers that will be homage to 171 of the most lavish oceanfront residences Fort Lauderdale Beach has ever seen. The one thing that is different with this property is the developers. Back in 2002, during the design phase, the developers wanted to build with the beachside flair and feel of the community in mind.

Developers PRH Fairwinds, a new partnership between Related Group, Fortune International and Fairwinds Group shared the vision of a casual atmosphere with a community centric basis that fit in with the famed Fort Lauderdale Beach lifestyle while offering the most sophisticated amenities and finishes to its residences. It was important from the onset for the developers to reach out to the Broward County community and inquire what they wanted to see built in Fort Lauderdale. The Ireland family has lived in Fort Lauderdale for five generations and being on the development team it was important to them to keep Auberge in-line with the locals in mind. It was the previous site of the Ireland’s Inn that the new Auberge is currently setting ground and they are ecstatic to be a part of the development plan. With the community feedback, the vision has been to design and build with what has drawn people to make Fort Lauderdale their home. It’s the sense of belonging and community without the flashiness or swanky attitudes of other neighboring towns such as Miami or Palm Beach. It’s a low-key, affluent, beachy vibe that appeals to why people choose to make Fort Lauderdale beach their home.

In Fort Lauderdale flip flops, jeans, and boat shoes are just as commonly seen around town as stilettos and Louie Vuitton purses. You never know who you will end up seeing around town or end up sitting next to at dinner but you wouldn’t know they could be a billionaire as they will most likely will be dressed down. That’s what the appeal is of Fort Lauderdale beach. If you buy in Auberge, your high profile neighbors will be Miami Dolphin’s Dan Marino, philanthropist/author Annie Falk and a Midwest manufacturing CEO that broke the real estate most expensive resident sold record last year of buying a four-bedroom penthouse in Auberge’s South Tower for $8.9 million, but we bet they will be seen wearing flip flops in the Auberge lobby and pool deck.

Auberge tops all others condominiums in Fort Lauderdale Beach. With vast selections of 1-6 bedrooms and only 5 extravagant penthouses offering 4,292-5,817 square feet of living area with nearly the same expanse of private outdoor space, The Auberge offers something for every South Florida beach connoisseur. Even private pools for the select few. The long list of immaculate amenities goes on. Completion slated for the end of this year. The North Tower is already 80% sold out.
