The North Beach
Community

The North Beach community is 99% condominiums – and as many Fort Lauderdale Realtors / Real Estate Agents will attest – the area is enjoying huge development / redevelopment and is a neighborhood that is very popular with both the Gay and Straight Community

You just have to drive the neighborhood to see all the construction!

With all the development and new construction many Real Estate Agents think this area will in time will end up rivaling South Beach in Miami – just in a smaller more boutique sort of way!

North Beach with its strong base of gay hotels and accommodation combined with the gay Beach Sebastian Beach just blocks away – will also help ensure this neighborhood remains popular with the gay and LGBT community.

North Beach (which for our purposes runs from Vistamar
down to Seville Street) is a part of Central Beach which in turn is part of Ft Lauderdale Beach

You can see the Central Beach neighborhood in the map above.

Central Beach overall has many luxury condominiums – in fact some on the most expensive real estate for sale here in Ft Lauderdale is right here in Central Beach.

However North Beach – has its own distinctive “vibe” – with a lot of mid-century buildings mixed in with modern and new construction condominiums and Hotel / Condos.

North Beach is truly is a great neighborhood!
