A giant $1 billion residential project, The District in Davie, will bring 1.6 million sf of new Class A residential apartments to the hot South Florida market. Located near Ft. Lauderdale and greater Miami, the development will include 36,000 sf of restaurants and retail space. The development will also provide 1.1 million sf of access controlled onsite parking with 2,650 parking spaces. 

The project, a redevelopment at the site of a dated shopping center, will be marketed as the new “front door to Davie,” targeted to young professionals. Amenities include a pool and 24-hour fitness/spa treatment room, a penthouse level Sky Lounge reservable for indoor and outdoor entertainment with kitchen and seating, and ground floor storefront spaces.

Planned lifestyle amenities include pet-friendly features such as bark parks and grooming stations, game lounges and children’s play suites, as well as multiple work-from-home accommodations including co-working spaces and meeting rooms.

The project’s five buildings will range from 20–24 stories, each level offering thoughtfully designed studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, some with dens. Unit sizes range from 589 sf to 1,460 sf. Each unit will provide keyless entry, high-speed Internet, and smart thermostats.

Outdoor social spaces will include rooftop pools, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and green spaces for outdoor yoga, games, and movies. Planned green elements include electric vehicle charging stations in garages, complimentary bicycle parking/storage areas, and LED lighting technology for energy efficiency.

Light-filled rental apartments include exceptional finishes, flexible layouts, and state-of-the-art appliances. Designed for the South Florida lifestyle, the rental units prioritize indoor/outdoor living with ample glass and private terraces on each floor. The apartments are complemented by a robust amenities package for multi-generational appeal. Phase one completion is expected in 2025.
