Big things are coming to Fort Lauderdale Beach!
In May 2022, The City of Fort Lauderdale and SunTex Marinas broke ground on the new Las Olas Marina as part of a public/private partnership.
In addition to being the future location of the expanded Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the iconic marina will redefine the Fort Lauderdale waterfront featuring fine dining, boutique retail, state-of-the-art infrastructure improvements, and a lush pedestrian-friendly landscape.

Features of the New Las Olas Marina Addition
The $70 million project will be built and paid for by SunTex Marinas and is estimated to take 24 months to complete. Plans for the new Las Olas Marina include:
- 7,000 linear feet of dockage
- a three-story 31,000-square-foot marine services building with a casual restaurant, ship store, office space, a gym, a swimming pool, and an outdoor patio
- a two-story 15,000-square-foot upscale waterfront restaurant with outdoor dining areas
The project will create 650+ jobs during construction and 1,110 full-time equivalent jobs. It is also expected to generate $221 million in annual economic impact, $6 million in annual state local tax revenue, and $446,000 in annual real estate property tax revenue.
Upon completion, the Las Olas Marina project will create a signature destination offering spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway that will enhance Fort Lauderdale’s position as the “Yachting Capital of the World.”

How the Las Olas Marina Transforms During FLIB
Every year the Las Olas Marina transforms with temporary dockage that expands from the marina. As the yachting capital of the world the new Las Olas Marina will expand this, adding more permanant dockage from already impressive infrastructure.

Las Olas Marina – Update August 2022
Construction continues full force on the beautiful city addition, rumors have it that Smith & Wollensky are to be the new resident for the restaurant venue at the new marina. However, nothing has been announced or confirmed.
“As a resident of South Florida for over 15 years, it was my dream to one day be able to walk to our beautiful beaches to enjoy nature. The new marina adds a chic urban feel to an already amazing lifestyle as a Las Olas Isles resident.” — Will Richardson, M.D. FAAD Board Certified Dermatologist located Founder of Natura Dermatology and Cosmetics, Bayview & Las Olas
