Ellis Plans to Deliver 380 Residential Units to Fort Lauderdale

Two acres in downtown Fort Lauderdale are now owned by Jim Ellis' company, acquired from longtime owners, the Gross family. The plan is to develop the land into a 380-unit apartment complex.

This adds to the bustle of the area's overall development activity. Fort Lauderdale, especially the northwest area, will mushroom with housing options. According to a recent article in the Real Deal, the city hopes to build 5,000 residences downtown.

The Ellis project is currently called 1st Avenue Residences. On a related note, Genia Duncan Ellis is President and CEO of the Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale team.
