In the mar­ket for a new home in South Florida? Don’t for­get to turn your eyes north. Fort Laud­erdale is no longer just a spring break des­ti­na­tion; it has evolved into a world-class city with su­perb din­ing, shop­ping, per­form­ing arts, and luxury homes. But there’s one more fac­tor that may pique the in­ter­est of luxury condo buy­ers.

“You’re never go­ing to see pric­ing like this ever again on Fort Laud­erdale Beach,” says Craig Studnicky, a co­founder of the Aven­tura-based In­ter­na­tional Sales Group, a real es­tate sales and mar­ket­ing firm that rep­re­sents new projects through­out South Florida. “The equiv­a­lent prop­erty in Mi­ami Beach is now three times as much.” Here are nine new de­vel­op­ments in Greater Fort Laud­erdale that merit your at­ten­tion.
