The landmark resort and marina Pier Sixty-Six is reimagining its new waterfront residences. For the first time, the 66-spire hotel tower (that forever changed Fort Lauderdale’s skyline in the 1960s) is offering homebuyers an unparalleled lifestyle at the “ultimate social harbor.” Its premier luxury condominiums, now under construction, start at $3.85 million. They are projected to open as early as 2024, coinciding with the debut of the revamped Pier Sixty-Six Resort.
“There’s truly nothing like The Residences at Pier Sixty-Six on the Eastern Seaboard,” says Craig Collin, chief operating officer at Tavistock Development Company, a diversified real estate firm that owns Pier Sixty-Six. “Offering owners a unique collection of sophisticated residences, a world-class marina and premier resort amenities, The Residences at Pier Sixty-Six will be one of the finest marine communities in the world.”
Phase one of the Residences at Pier Sixty-Six consists of 62 luxury condominiums, each with two to four bedrooms and 2,700 to 3,800 square feet. The residences are designer-ready and completely customizable by owners. Fine finishes enhance the kitchens and bathrooms, including SubZero appliances, Italian cabinets, quartz countertops and contemporary modern light fixtures. The units feature standard ten-foot ceilings, expansive balconies, semi-private elevators and architecturally rich molding.
Residents will have full use of the amenities offered at the world-class destination set on 32 waterfront acres along the Intracoastal Waterway. It features award-winning restaurants, relaxing lounges, opulent spas, state-of-the-art recreation areas and more.
The resort is undergoing a monumental overhaul as the new residences are added. The hotel’s grand entrance has been redesigned with a long entryway that provides amazing water views, and ultra-modern details will be added throughout the property. The 164-slip marina remains open during construction and continues as a host site for the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
Beyond the resort amenities, residence owners will have additional benefits such as a dedicated concierge service to facilitate VIP reservations, marina arrangements and in-residence services like catering and housekeeping. There will be a rotation of maritime and social events for residents. Additional facilities include a private restaurant lounge called The Club Room, private cabanas at the marina-front pool deck and the Wellness Lounge, featuring a private fitness room and water grotto. Also under construction is a new signature restaurant overlooking the water.
“Fort Lauderdale has experienced an incredible renaissance as the Venice of America, and there is an overwhelming demand for luxury residences that embrace the yachting culture that is so unique to the area,” said Daniel de la Vega, president of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
The concept of being Fort Lauderdale’s social harbor is not too far-fetched when you consider all that is offered. With its Intracoastal setting and 5000-foot dockage, Pier Sixty-Six gives residents with boat slips seamless access to deep-water adventures. The reimagined resort’s poolside lifestyle, lavish hangout lounges and water-focused amenities will attract people from all over.
“The Residences at Pier Sixty-Six are a rare opportunity for buyers to own at one of the most iconic properties in South Florida,” said Amy Ballon, sales director for Pier Sixty-Six. These luxury condominiums, designed to engage owners with the water and marina, will likely be at the center of Fort Lauderdale’s yachting culture for decades.
