Currently under construction with a delivery Q1 2021 is the Four Seasons Private Residences Fort Lauderdale. Designed by acclaimed architect Kobi Karp, the project is set on the beachfront strand of Fort Lauderdale beach. It is intimately sized at only 22 stories and faces the ocean like a glass encased bow of a ship, angled on each side to capture maximum ocean views. This design makes sense because of the ideal positioning adjacent to some of the most renowned deep-water marinas in the United States. The yachting theme continues though-out the interior kitchen designs by famed designer Tara Bernerd, custom lacquered millwork cabinetry with antique bronze metal fittings, Dornbracht faucets and curated appliances including Sub-Zero, Miele and Wolf. The bath experience was inspired by luminous sunlight, Greek Statuario Marble and oak vanities with brushed nickle Waterworks fittings were used and accents of antique brass trim reminiscent of ships at sea.

The Four Seasons Residences Fort Lauderdale consists of 42 unfurnished private residences, 48 furnished private residences with approximately 130 guest rooms which are separated from the private living experience. The private residences are offered in 2, 3 and 4 bedroom configurations beginning at 2,264sf to a Penthouse with 6,540sf. If a luxury beachfront living experience and yachting lifestyle are what you seek then the Four Seasons Private Residences could be the choice for you.

The Four Seasons in Surfside is situated on eight acres with 965 feet of pristine oceanfront. Reimagined for modern day living but retaining the history of the original namesake,  Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier in collaboration with architect Kobi Karp designed two transparent 12-story residential buildings with a separate boutique Four Seasons Hotel surrounding the historic 1930’s legendary Surf Club.

With an eye towards the ocean each residence at The Surf Club was meticulously designed by Richard Meier with interior design details by designer Lee Mindel. The vision was to maximize the ocean experience and seamlessly merge together indoor and outdoor space. Walls of glass amplify the view and diffuse the light providing transparency to invite the ocean inside.The ocean, sun and juxtaposition of innovative modern design combined with an historical backdrop create design harmony at The Surf Club.

Unique to the Surf Club are the Beachfront Homes that are located on the second and third floors. Double height ceilings and interior courtyards provide these special units with livable qualities usually attrtibuted to single family homes. They range in size from 1,400sf to 8,000sf.

The Surf Club encompasses a boutique 77 room Four Seasons Hotel and 150 Private Residences. Blending together modern day design with a storied historical site embraced by the sea.
