Midway between Palm Beach and Miami sits Fort Lauderdale, a beachside town often overlooked by those drawn to its neighbors to the north and south—but that’s about to change, thanks to a recent renaissance of the city driven by restauranteurs and real estate moguls looking to capitalize on its central location, charm and beautiful beaches.

Confirmation of this new awakening is the new EDITION Residences, which will be one of the city’s first luxury branded residences on the Intercoastal and a short walk to the bustling North Beach Village. Located on the waterfront of 551 Bayshore Drive, the two 11-story towers consist of 65 spacious residences with two-bedroom to four-bedroom floor plans all featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors that open to expansive private terraces, along with nine villas and four penthouses.

“Fort Lauderdale has been quietly experiencing a renaissance over the past few years,” said Sheila Farahpour, VP, Luxury Brands & Mixed-Use Development, Marriott International. “A city that was once known as a vacation destination has morphed into one of the most attractive places to live in the U.S. with its renowned yachting, golden beaches, vibrant arts and culture scene, and recent influx of new businesses. Fort Lauderdale has emerged as a market of its own—and the EDITION Residences Fort Lauderdale will be the perfect complement for Owners seeking a more laid-back luxury lifestyle.”

Owners will have exclusive access to EDITION’s premier hospitality offerings, from dining and entertainment to a curated program of world-class amenities. The EDITION Residences feature two pools, a heath and wellness center, an eat-in lounge with a gourmet kitchen for hosting private events and on-site conference rooms for business professionals. There is also the moonroof to spend calmer evenings and the sunroof optimal for social gatherings as it features an outdoor summer kitchen, move screen and large fire pit.
