If you’ve driven down Las Olas Blvd. lately you may have noticed the Icon Las Olas Contruction Begins! It looks like the housing crisis is just about over. At least in the east Fort Lauderdale area. Construction has started to come back and that is noticeable! Prices have been steadily increasing as well as rental prices. It seems for now, demand for paradise known as Fort Lauderdale is in full force. Construction of large buildings is underway including the 8th Avenue Residences, Paramount Beach Residences, Gale Boutique Hotel & Residences and Auberge Beach to name a few. None as anticipated as Icon Las Olas!
Icon Las Olas Contruction Begins
Icon Las Olas, after 15 long years has finally started construction. Since 1999, when the original documents were submitted to Fort Lauderdale, Las Olas Icon has had many obstacles to overcome. The wait is over, construction has begun and in 2017 Icon Las Olas will be realized. Currently the building is under the premise of becoming a luxury rental building in downtown Fort Lauderdale but the building design and construction hasn’t changed. The Fort Lauderdale real estate market will decide if the building ends up as condominiums.
Currently, Icon Las Olas is labeled: High-Rise Residential Condominium.
A quick video of the Las Olas Icon Construction site taken the same day as the photo.
As Icon Las Olas Contruction Begins and an early photo was taken of the site in February of 2015. Not much looks to be done but in any construction job it all starts with the foundation. A building like Icon Las Olas, towering 455 ft in there air certainly needs a good one. 2 Cranes have now been erected and construction seams to be progressing nicely.
