Fort Lauderdale’s FAT Village project, now under construction, is being called a new era for Flagler Village. Spearheaded by global real estate investment manager Hines in collaboration with Urban Street Development, this ambitious mixed-use development aims to redefine the city’s cultural and economic landscape.

The groundbreaking ceremony, held on March 21, marked the initiation of construction on the 5.6-acre site nestled in the heart of Flagler Village. With a vision to create a dynamic community hub, the project includes residential, commercial, and entertainment spaces.

“The launch of FAT Village signifies a significant milestone in our commitment to urban revitalization,” said Alan Kennedy, managing director of Hines. “This development will not only enhance Fort Lauderdale’s urban fabric but also celebrate the neighborhood’s rich artistic heritage.”

The project has three residential towers, over 850 units, Class AA office space, retail outlets, restaurants, entertainment venues, and parking facilities.

“FAT Village will provide a much-needed sense of place for residents and creatives alike, offering a diverse array of amenities within easy reach,” emphasized Alan Hooper, co-founder and CEO of Urban Street Development.

Infused with elements of local culture and history, the FAT Village development will unfold in two phases, with the initial phase slated for completion in 2027.
