Rarely Available-Forever Ocean & Coast Views

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on September 16, 2009

Park Tower
WOW, this unit just became available moments ago and I wanted to be sure to share it with everyone I know! Park Tower is a wonderful building surrounded by Birch State Park and directly across from the beautiful beaches of Fort Lauderdale with it’s own underground tunnel for access to the beach. Units rarely become available in this building and this 15th floor unit is located in the “D” stack which is the most desirable location in the building offering views from every single room. Because of its location by the State Park your views will NEVER change. This is a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with a split bedroom plan and features all impact glass. Building has undergone substantial renovations and improvements over the last five years. Each floor features only 4 residences. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for one very lucky buyer! $375,000, let me know if you or someone you know might be interested!
