The eighteen-story, one hundred fifty -five room Cortez Hotel was to be built in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. This building will be situated on AIA, just north of Las Olas Boulevard and will allow for majestic views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Its modernist facades are smart and clean. The Hotel’s ground plan allows for an interactive and people friendly sidewalk. The Hotel’s amenities will include a roof-top gymnasium and pool, meeting facilities, as well as a high-tech automated parking system.
