On the heels of the recent announcement that Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale is more than 50 percent sold, Miami-based development company Fort Partners celebrated the sales success and construction progress of the luxury development at a luncheon today, held at Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale’s sales center, announcing its selection of esteemed Florida-based construction company Coastal Construction as the general contractor.
Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis addressed the audience, which consisted of city and state officials, as well as buyers, prospects and top-selling brokers. Trantalis, as well as Commissioner Heather Moraitis, highlighted the growth and transformation of Fort Lauderdale into an international destination.
Trantalis also expressed how this iconic Four Seasons property will open its doors in late 2020, amid a new wave of never-before-seen momentum in South Florida, including business magnate Richard Branson’s investment in the Virgin Trains rail system and soccer star David Beckham’s successful bid to host the Inter Miami soccer team at the site of Lockhart Stadium.
More than 100 guests enjoyed the surf and turf meal prepared by Chef Jose Gamez of the Four Seasons Palm Beach. The attendees also tasted other delicious offerings, which included a raw bar, lamb sliders and tasty bites, while discussing the success of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale.
The seaside metropolis of Fort Lauderdale is experiencing a moment, and it’s only fitting that Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale has become a driving force.
Intimately scaled at 22 stories, the oceanfront property will consist of 130 guest rooms and 90 furnished and unfurnished private residences, ranging from 780 square feet to over 6,000 square feet of one- to four-bedroom spaces. Developed by Fort Partners, led by Nadim Ashi, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences is poised to bring a five-star level of luxury to Fort Lauderdale, considered the “Venice of America.”
To execute world-class luxury, Ashi appointed an international collective of leading visionaries. Interior designer Tara Bernerd & Partners’ background includes transforming properties across New York, Chicago, London, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Switzerland; famed hospitality designer Martin Brudnizki is tapped to create the property’s restaurants, lounges and pool areas; architect Kobi Karp brings his two-decades-plus experience in designing high-end Caribbean, Asian and Middle Eastern properties; landscape architect Fernando Wong will dedicate one-third of the property to lush green space; and Coastal Construction, which has played an integral part of building South Florida’s skyline, will oversee the building.
Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale is the third iconic Florida property within Fort Partners’ portfolio. With a focus on historic preservation, architecture, design and sustainability, Ashi has overseen the development of Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club, Surfside, Florida – which has restored the once-sleepy seaside town to its heyday amongst elite beachside destination – and redesign of Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.
The belief buyers have in the brand and the developer already exists, with more than 50% of its Fort Lauderdale residences already sold, achieving prices of over $2,000/square feet. Exclusive Four Seasons services and amenities include a luxury spa and fitness center, signature restaurant, oceanfront terrace with dual pool experiences and luxury cabanas, beachside butler service, youth-centric programming, custom yachting services and more.

Further cementing its place as an international destination for cultural arts, Fort Lauderdale recently welcomed the Tony Award-winning smash hit “Hamilton” to its world-class performing arts center, as well as the presentation of the groundbreaking exhibit “Frank Stella: Experiment and Change” to the region’s fine arts museum. In addition, the city’s connectivity to Europe, Latin America and Asia only grows with the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport – the nation’s 19th busiest airport for passenger traffic – providing a vast network of direct flights to Dubai, London, Toronto, Mexico City and several other international destinations.
