These exquisite townhomes, now under construction, are ideally situated in Downtown Fort Lauderdale in very close proximity to the chic and bustling Las Olas Boulevard []. The name “Colee Hammock” comes from the gorgeous local hammock trees and named after James Louis Colee, an engineer who worked for Mary Brickell, owner of the land. Colee Hammock is divided by Las Olas Boulevard and offers waterfront homes and a range of different styles of luxury Fort Lauderdale real estate options.

There have been numerous restaurant openings in and around Colee Hammock over the past couple of years, including Fork & Balls, Raw Poke Bar, BAO Bar + Kitchen, Louie Bossi’s, Sweet Nectar, and most recently, B Square – something for even the most discerning palate.
