The Face of Fort Lauderdale Luxury
By Samantha Myers
Known for its boutique-style, high-end hotels, Auberge Resorts is bringing luxury to the beaches of Fort Lauderdale with the Auberge Beach Residences & Spa. “Auberge is leading the pack of the utmost level of luxury there, and that’s bringing people to the area,” says Patrick Campbell of The Related Group. “We pride ourselves in finding value for our clients, and Fort Lauderdale has tremendous value over the prices that they are getting in Miami.”
The residences include two towers on 5 acres of Atlantic Ocean beachfront and top-of-the-line amenities such as 2 restaurants and a world-class spa. “Auberge brought their hospitality sensibilities and instincts to the project, making it a very interesting combination of public amenities and private facilities,” says Bruce Brosch, partner at NBWW & Associates. “The public feels welcomed, and the owners feel that their privacy is protected.”
Although not yet completed, 90 percent of the North Tower’s 57 residences are purchased and 30 percent of the 114-residence South Tower is sold. The North Tower’s curved design emerged as a practical solution to a local code about beach shadows, but gives residents desirable features such as expansive terraces paralleling the size of interior units and mini-pools. The 23-story South Tower has already set a record-breaking sale for absolute price in Fort Lauderdale with its 4-bedroom penthouse selling for $8.9 million.“We are the face of unsurpassed luxury in the Fort Lauderdale market. We do not have any competitors,” says Campbell. Estimated completion is late 2017.
