Moss & Associates celebrated Jan. 27 the topping off of Fort Lauderdale’s tallest building to date, the 45-story ICON Las Olas, with a luncheon for nearly 650 employees and guests.
The $160 million luxury residential project, developed in partnership with the Related Group and Rabina Properties, is located at 500 E Las Olas Blvd., and has 272 residential units ranging from 960 to 1,926 sq. ft. The 826,385 sq. ft. structure is designed by Sieger Suarez Architects.
“We are proud to be a part of this project, which sets a new benchmark for construction in Fort Lauderdale,” Scott Desharnais, executive vice-president of Moss & Associates, said in a statement. “This has been a highly anticipated offering in the market, and being that is the tallest highrise in the city, it honors us that the Related Group trusted our firm with the realization of this concept.”
“The Related Group has been committed to delivering a property like Icon Las Olas for years, and we are excited to see the concept finally come to life on this iconic street,” said Related Group vice-president Patrick Campbell. “Nothing like this has ever existed in Fort Lauderdale before, and we’re thrilled to have teamed up with Rabina Properties and Moss to turn this vision into a reality.”
“Partnering with leading industry titans like The Related Group and Moss & Associates on this project has been a great experience,” said Mickey Rabina, president and CEO of Rabina Properties. “Icon Las Olas combines the best talent with an exceptional location overlooking all of Fort Lauderdale, and I think that will be reflected in the final product.”
The project broke ground in February 2015 and is expected to achieve final completion in July 2017.
