PROJECT DESCRIPTION

ArchCo Metropolitan is located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s burgeoning Flager Village. With 385 apartment units and 26,757 square feet dedicated to retail and restaurant spaces, Metropolitan is a key contributor to the neighborhood’s renaissance. The project will occupy a full block from North Andrews Avenue to Northeast 1st Avenue and from Northeast 6th Street to Northeast 5th Street. Pedestrians will benefit from a paseo that doubles as a walkway from North Andrews Avenue to Northeast 1st Avenue and a place of entertainment, featuring market stalls, outdoor restaurant seating, a 7,396 sf public plaza and an interior courtyard. The exterior of the building meshes the Classical and Mediterranean Revival styles of historic Fort Lauderdale with more contemporary forms representative of the 21st Century,especially as those revival styles transition to Art Deco.

“Over the course of developing more than 7,000 units, you figure out some architects are great at design. Some are great at creating a functional project. Very few can do both. The Preston Partnership is the best at marrying both form and function. They design beautiful buildings that are affordable and efficient. They are the best.”
– John W. Long, South City Partners
