The Village at Sailboat Bend Multi-Family Housing Development
This new urban community provides residential and non-residential development components within a new street grid reconnecting to the surrounding neighborhood. The residential component of 260 units of housing includes subsidized and low-cost rental live/work open lofts for artists mixed with affordable and market-rate ownership. Arranged in two and three story buildings and walk-up units (two-family units, one on top of the other) with direct entry from the street, the mixed-use, mixed-finance development has generated economic, cultural, architectural, and recreational diversity in a disinvested urban area and has also acted as a catalyst for investment and opportunity in Fort Lauderdale. New community assets in the form of parks and green space, and arts-related educational and cultural programming were also included within the plan.
