BEST ARCHITECTURE/DESIGN: FINALISTS
Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale
Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates and The Related Group
Sales and marketing: Fortune International
Interior Designer: Meyer Davis Studio

Auberge Beach is a lifestyle destination project nearly 20 years in the making. Despite facing numerous challenges – from community opposition to hurricanes and the Great Recession – the original owners of the property, The Fairwinds Group, sought to turn the former Ireland’s Inn Beach Resort site into a marquee property.
From location to design and amenities, the development team saw in Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale an understated, yet remarkable, all-residential property from the Auberge Resorts Collection.
Auberge Beach today is one of several luxury condominiums that are reshaping Fort Lauderdale beach with amenities and architecture that are transforming the city and region into an iconic lifestyle destination.

Insurance: Beane and Bennett

Muze at Met is a 42-story, 391-apartment rental and movie theater complex built atop a podium superstructure through the acquisition of air rights only and no fee simple real estate. The podium contains a six-level vertical movie theater and 20,000 square feet of restaurant space from a separate developer, and was constructed simultaneously with the $155.6 million Muze tower (excluding the retail and movie theater) utilizing three integrated construction contracts.
The project architect’s deep experience with complicated mixed-use projects, working in conjunction with the structural engineer, resulted in placing the apartments atop the vertical movie theater. This made it virtually unnoticeable from within or outside of the building.
