The Ocean Resort Residences

The Conrad Fort Lauderdale beach residences is one of the most popular condo hotels in South Florida.

Investors have been waiting with bated breath for years to get a piece of this five-star oceanfront condo

hotel and their chance is finally here. Talk of this property started way back in 2004 but construction

began two years later. The property was to be called the Trump International Hotel but that never came

to pass. The project was hit by the recession and real estate crash that happened in 2009 when its

construction was nearly over. When the dust finally settled, the property had not only changed names

Conrad Hotels & Resorts is now charged with managing this one-of-a-kind residential property. If you

company is responsible for the management of numerous luxury hotels and resorts in five continents.

enhancements and luxury upgrades in order to bring the property up to standard. After months of

relentless upgrading, CFLB is now ready to open the doors to prospective buyers. Cervera Real Estate

brokerage firm was officially named the sales and marketing firm for this property in December 2014.

Cervera is another big name in real estate and boasts of over 50,000 condo sales in South Florida alone.

With nearly half a century’s worth of experience, Cervera represents over 2.5 billion dollars in real


So, what’s so special about this particular property? Let’s start with the site. The condo hotel is located

The 6- and 24-story towers of this property contain a total of 290 residences that are now up for sale.
