SobelCo’s 321 at Water’s Edge offers Fort Lauderdale shoreline living for the privileged few.
Florida ˚ Fort Lauderdale ˚ North Beach Village
Tirso San Jose understands property development from the ground up. Having been in the business for 30 years, he is now VP of Development at SobelCo, and working on their latest luxury Addition to Fort Lauderdale Beach: 321 at Water’s Edge. The boutique-style waterfront condo of 23 residences has all the perks and amenities the domestic and international buyer is looking for in a neighborhood currently undergoing a groundbreaking makeover.
One of the many beneﬁts of living in a prime Fort Lauderdale Beach location is its proximity to just about everything you could ever need. As San Jose told us, “If you want to be in the middle of everything,” you are a hop, skip, and a jump from it. “If you want to live a more relaxed life, you are only 700 feet away from the shoreline. You are also one mile from Las Olas where you’ll ﬁnd shops and ﬁne dining.
Finally, you have direct access to the Ritz, the W Fort Lauderdale Hotel, the Four Seasons, and the other luxury amenities being built in the area.” Additionally, San Jose reminded us that the many ups and downs of Miami real estate prices are rarely seen on the Fort Lauderdale Beach market. To put it bluntly: “Anyone who purchases in the Fort Lauderdale market is making a much safer bet.”
The less severe ﬂuctuations in real estate markets aren’t the only thing that should draw you to the area, though, as 321 at Water’s Edge ﬁts into the entire rejuvenation project of the neighborhood. North Beach Village, a historic area of the city that is at the heart of the evolution of Fort Lauderdale Beach, is being transformed under a progressive development model that is designed to accommodate change.
Many of the two- to three-story boutique hotels are slowly being remade to appeal to the strong local and European visitor base, Breakers Avenue is having its sidewalks widened, and major thoroughfares are being constructed to connect the Intracoastal with the shoreline. Finally, with newly planted vegetation allowing for shade on the streets connecting the reﬁned and distinctive mid-century skyline, developers of the area are making sure that, “residents and visitors will not want to leave the village to supply their everyday wishes.”
As for the development itself, San Jose was keen on pointing out that the SobelCo team is, “starting to see buyers migrating out of Miami to Fort Lauderdale because they can purchase property found in a relaxed atmosphere, built with less density, for a lower price point. On the other hand, if you are someone who is looking to move out of that 7,000- or 8,000-square-foot house and live in a condo that feels like a single family home, 321 is a good ﬁt for you.”
Apart from that, the 23 units at 321 offer exclusive amenities including a ﬁtness center, wine storage area, cocktail bar and expansive rooftop terraces featuring views of both the Fort Lauderdale skyline and shoreline. For those looking to dock their yacht, 321 will offer four boat slips (two of which are already spoken for) accommodating yachts up to 70 feet in size. With units starting at $2 million and a completion date in the ﬁrst quarter of 2018, 321 truly is a development reserved only for the privileged few.
