ODA has revealed renderings of its first project in South Florida. 300 West Broward, a 38-story residential project, will act as an urban gateway to the heart of Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The project will feature two towers that sit atop a 10-story podium and bring together a mixed-use program of 956 units and 23,752 sf of ground level commercial use. The unique bridged massing of the towers will create a focal point for visitors and residents. The design of the elevated massing on the ground floor establishes a new urban connection through the site by creating a covered outdoor space for the neighborhood and a pedestrian friendly connection to the Brightline, the museum, and the surrounding downtown residential blocks.

The southwest corner of the podium massing lifts up to create a welcoming plaza and gestures toward the pedestrian traffic from the museum and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. An arrival plaza on Nugent Avenue creates a welcoming entry space for people coming from Brightline and Las Olas. Both plazas are connected through the ground floor, creating an expansive covered pedestrian realm that will be lined with retail uses and activated year-round.

The top of the podium has an outdoor amenity deck with sunset and sunrise pools, lush landscaping, lounge areas, pergolas, and cabanas. The indoor program features a lounge, a library, and a health and fitness center.

Residential units begin on the 11th floor and continue up through the 48 floors. The top two floors of each tower are reserved for penthouse loft units.
