I had a wonderful time at the Manhattan Tower. The place was super clean. The bed was comfy. The view from the back was awesome. It was great to walk around the area and feel safe. Close to the ocean and restaurants. Would recommend to everyone!!

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.
