Village at Sailboat Bend

Fort Lauderdale, FL

Lennar Homes commissioned Zyscovich to master plan a 14-acre historic neighborhood site (previously surplus property owned by the Broward County School Board) to create an urban infill community. The site is located in proximity to Fort Lauderdale’s entertainment and cultural districts, including its performing arts center.  This mixed-income urban renewal project has brought new life to the western edge of the city’s famed Las Olas Boulevard and includes a campus for artists. 

Included at the Western edge of the development is the historic West Side School, which had been unused for decades.  The building will be restored as an adaptive re-use by Artspace as a community facility and by the Broward County Historical Society.  Restoration will be in keeping with the architectural character of the neighborhood which includes old Fort Lauderdale-style townhomes.  Harmon Field Park, adjacent to the old school, will be refurbished and extended to an adjoining waterway.  The park will serve as a civic space for both the new neighborhood and community at large.
