Pros and Cons of Pier Sixty-Six

Pier Sixty-Six is set to become the “Social Harbor” of Fort Lauderdale. The iconic spired tower will remain as it has since the 1960s, the welcoming gateway to the Yachting Capital of the World. Yachting enthusiasts understand that Pier Sixty-Six and the marina lifestyle it affords are distinctive and desirable for anyone living that lifestyle. It will have everything that ultra-luxury buyers are searching for, except for immediate beach access. The most beautiful stretch of beach is only moments away and can be enjoyed easily. The location is set near the active Intracoastal Waterway Bridge and noise-sensitive residents should consider this when selecting a unit. On the other hand, the views from the waterway will be amazing.
