Developer Asi Cymbal, probably best known locally as the guy that sold Craig Robins a half a block of the Design District that he didn't already own for the grand sum of $11 million, has a big idea for the New River, in downtown Fort Lauderdale, and it involves starchitect Bjarke Ingels. Marina Lofts, by Ingels, is a huge, 1072 unit rental apartment complex along the south side of the New River that looks like a lego wall splitting apart, or even vaguely kind of like a sailing ship. Funding, at about $250 million, has yet to be secured, so that's that.
