Four Seasons Breaks Ground on New Hotel in Fort Lauderdale

(Four Seasons)

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, developed by Fort Partners, broke ground today. The development will have 90 Private Residences and 130 guestrooms, along with access to luxury amenities and services.

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale will mark the third collaboration between Four Seasons and Fort Partners, joining Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach and Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at The Surf Club in extending the luxury hospitality brand's presence in South Florida. Homeowners of Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale will have special access as preferred guests to Fort Partners' portfolio of Four Seasons properties in South Florida.

The 22-story oceanfront property will offer rooms from the fourth through the 11th floors, as well as Private Residences beginning on floor five. Of the residential portion, the developer has achieved more than $100 million in sales to date, with an international mix of buyers from across the Americas and Europe.


The interior design is led by London-based Tara Bernerd, who was responsible for the building's full interior architecture. Bernard has designed hotels, private homes, and yachts in London, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Hong Kong. In addition, Martin Brudnizki, a London-based hospitality designer, envisioned the culinary experience at Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, where he designed the property's restaurants, lounges and pool areas.

Award-winning Miami-based architect Kobi Karp is the mind behind the development. Karp has designed properties worldwide, including in the Caribbean, the Far East, the Black Sea region and the Middle East.

Fernando Wong is the leading landscape architect for Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale, which will have one-third of the property devoted to green space. He refers to this landscape design as a "civilized jungle," using palm trees and native plants on both the ground floor and the third-floor oceanfront pool deck to give off an organic vibe.

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Fort Lauderdale has an oceanfront terrace on the third floor with dual pool experiences and luxury cabanas, a Four Seasons spa, fitness center and a Kids for All Seasons program for children. A signature all-day restaurant with interior and alfresco seating also resides on the oceanfront terrace with a pool bar, lounge and an ocean-view outdoor café. Guests and residents can also enjoy the dedicated attention and à la carte services from Four Seasons beach butlers.
