Introducing Natiivo Fort Lauderdale: Newgard Development Group Unveils Plans For Newest Lifestyle Project

Newgard Development Group, a leader in lifestyle residential developments across the Southeast, is expanding the trendsetting developer’s Natiivo brand beyond its successful projects in Miami and Austin. Newgard plans to develop Natiivo Fort Lauderdale, a 40-story, 384-unit resort condominium project on a prime site in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Natiivo Fort Lauderdale is the first turnkey resort condominium property in Fort Lauderdale purposely designed, built, and licensed for short-term rentals.

Under the guidance of Harvey Hernandez, Newgard is set to redefine the landscape of flexible ownership and short-term rentals in Fort Lauderdale. Natiivo, a distinctive brand inspired by the concept of owning and traveling like a native, introduces a novel approach to ownership. Notably, Newgard’s track record includes pioneering Natiivo-branded projects that were the nation’s first intentionally designed and licensed for short-term rental use. This accomplishment positions Newgard as an industry trailblazer, spearheading a new era in Fort Lauderdale’s real estate market with a commitment to innovation and progressive ownership models.

“We envision Natiivo Fort Lauderdale as a catalyst for the city’s full potential, introducing flexible ownership in a downtown high-rise,” said Hernandez. “In today’s world, travelers seek an uncompromising blend of services and amenities within a residential environment. Our successful vision for Natiivo in Miami and Austin resonated with buyers, and we are thrilled to bring this concept to Fort Lauderdale.”

Natiivo Fort Lauderdale offers fully finished and furnished residences spanning from 500 to 1,200 square feet, priced between the $500,000s and $1.5 million. The renowned Arquitectonica serves as the project architect, while IDDI contributes urban luxury-inspired interior design. Anticipated completion is targeted for 2028.

Cervera Real Estate is Natiivo Fort Lauderdale’s exclusive sales and marketing representative.

“Newgard Development Group consistently pushes boundaries in redefining how people own luxury residential real estate and approach travel,” said Alicia Cervera Jr., Managing Partner at Cervera Real Estate. “Natiivo Fort Lauderdale will epitomize this philosophy and showcase the essence of the Natiivo brand. Today’s buyers possess a deeper understanding and appreciation for the lifestyle, convenience and flexibility that this unique product offers.”

Located steps away from the Brightline Fort Lauderdale station at 200 W. Broward Blvd., Natiivo Fort Lauderdale will have a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom resort condominiums with modern, open-concept floor plans. Other unit features include floor-to-ceiling doors and windows with impact-resistant glass, spacious balconies, lockable owners closets, walk-in closets, full-size washer and dryer, smart home technology, European-style kitchen cabinets with contemporary hardware, elegant quartz countertops in kitchens and bathrooms and keyless entry locks.

Natiivo Fort Lauderdale has a stunning array of amenities, including:

  • “The Splash,” a pool located at the top of the building’s parking pedestal
  • “The Social,” a club room and lounge in the pool area
  • “The Fit,” a fitness center with a spa area, locker room and showers
  • “The Dine,” a signature ground-floor restaurant

Furthermore, the development will feature additional ground-floor space curated to complement the surrounding neighborhood, including an array of carefully selected restaurants.

Hotel services will be available to owners and guests alike, and owners can utilize the flexible hotel program to have their units rented through Natiivo.  The project is a short drive to Fort Lauderdale’s world-class beaches and the city’s iconic retail and restaurant district on Las Olas Boulevard.  The arts and cultural district that includes the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the Museum of Discovery and Science is a walkable distance.

Newgard has developed a dozen condominium projects in South Florida and outside of the state over the past 25 years.

In Fort Lauderdale Beach, Newgard’s trendsetting Gale Residences & Hotel development helped the neighborhood evolve from a Spring Break hotspot to a year-round destination by attracting buyers from Latin America, the Northeast U.S. and other parts of South Florida. It also marked the debut of Newgard’s pioneering flexible ownership concept that has since been replicated elsewhere in Florida and in Texas.
