At 3 a.m. last night, in a packed house of blood-shot eyes, developer Asi Cymbal and architectural superstar Bjarke Ingels’ apartment development Marina Lofts was approved by the Fort Lauderdale City Commission, which is just about the most exciting thing to happen north of the Dade/Broward County boarder since the invention of shuffleboard. We kid, we kid! ‘Where The Boys Are’ was filmed there in the 60s. Anywho… Marina Lofts, is finally happening now. As a condition of the approval, it has been downscaled yet again, from 960 to 856 units. (It was originally over 1000) The Rain Tree will be moved, and placed within a beautiful new park , the Fort Lauerdale Riverwalk will finally be fully interconnected, and Fort Lauderdale will have a really iconic new piece of architecture.
