The Related Group is confident its 15-year battle with the City of Fort Lauderdale and historic Stranahan House over the 42-story Icon Las Olas project is in the past.
Related vice president Patrick Campbell told the Sun-Sentinel the company expects to advance the 272-unit, $250 million complex this year. The project in the 500 block of East Las Olas Boulevard would include a public plaza connecting the Las Olas entertainment district with the Riverwalk along the New River. Even Stranahan House representatives are on board with the development these days.
“I think it would be a good thing for everybody, because it’s such an important corner for when people are coming into our downtown,” said April Kirk, executive director of the 1901 Stranahan House Museum.
Stranahan officials say they are now working with Related on the potential impacts of the project. [Sun-Sentinel] — Eric Kalis
