The Residences at the W Fort Lauderdale

If you’re looking for modern luxury and what the new Fort Lauderdale Beach has become, look here. From the stylish bar with expansive deck overlooking the ocean to restaurant Steak 954, this nautical-inspired, striking building provides one of A1A’s more unique luxury experiences.


Architect: Borges + Associates
Address: 920 Intracoastal Dr.
Part of the “Aqua” group of developments – AquaVue, AquaVita, AquaMar and AquaLuna are located closer to Las Olas, while this sits near the Galleria – this is waterfront condo living for a younger generation, with boat slips and massive “entertainment terraces” overlooking the water and the Bonnet House grounds.

Birch Tower

You don’t have to go new to go fabulous in Fort Lauderdale. This midcentury modern masterpiece is one of influential architect Charles McKirahan’s important Fort Lauderdale works – and with the mid-century North Beach Village buildings around it being brought back to their former glory, it’s in a neighborhood on the upswing.
