Manhattan Tower apartment description

Set in a restored Mid-Century Modern architectural gem originally built in 1952 as a Corporate Retreat for General Motors executives, this apartment is one of eleven in a building directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, a quiet refuge just off the main Fort Lauderdale Beach. A wall of windows allows you to view the courtyard and pool from your living room. Walk five minutes to swim in the Ocean or lounge on the waterfront deck or the tropical terrace surrounding the oversized heated pool (20'X40'). The Beach Promenade leads to many fine restaurants and exciting night time activities.

Whether attending a convention at the Broward County Convention Center just 3.6 miles away or participating in a swim meet at the Fort Lauderdale Swimming Hall Of Fame which is within easy walking distance (1 mile) or seeking a tropical Oasis in which to relax, Manhattan Tower is the place for you.

After a day at the beach or shopping or any of the other myriad of activities, relax and unwind in the privacy of your apartment, on the waterfront deck or in the the tropical courtyard pool. Our fully equipped kitchens allow you to spend the evening over a candle light dinner in your own apartment or choose to go to one of the variety of restaurants nearby. Our housekeeping staff is available for your comfort 5 days a week from 9-5.

Barbeque and have dinner on the waterfront deck.

Stay with us and discover why Fort Lauderdale is referred to as the 'Venice of America' and the Intracoastal Waterway as the 'Grand Canal'. Just whistle and the waterbus (vaporetto) will pick you up at our waterfront deck. Spend the day on the water stopping for lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants or stopping to shop along famous Las Olas Blvd. After an adventure filled day you will arrive back where your apartment will be waiting to welcome you.

There are two full size beds in the bedroom.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: Having owned Joseph Russel Antiques and Distinctive Real Estate on Las Olas Blvd for over 28 years, it was a natural transition to buying this neglected Mid-Century Modern property and transforming it by updating all apartments while respecting the architecture and unique character.

              Why the Owner Chose Manhattan Tower:
              This property, just a short walk from the main Fort Lauderdale beach which can be crazy at times, is an oasis with its tropical gardens surrounding the oversized pool and tranquil views of the Intracoastal. This incredible example of Mid-Century Modern Architecture is captivating. The desire to save it from demolition was irresistible and to save many construction materials from other demolition projects in the area and recycle them into modernizing this property has been our challenge since 2000.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              For less than the cost of a room at a quality hotel by the beach in this area, guests will get a whole apartment with full kitchen in a home like setting with gardens, a semi private pool and barbeque and lounging deck on the Intracoatal Waterway enjoying the daily parade of boats.
