For most people, living directly on the South Florida Atlantic coastline would be a dream come true. Waking up to watch the sunrise, feeling that refreshing ocean breeze, and listening to the calming lull of the Atlantic Ocean waves would be a part of everyday life. Yet on Fort Lauderdale Beach, there’s one new condominium community that’s elevating coastal living to new heights, and renowned architect Kobi Karp raised the bar higher than ever. Soaring 300 feet above the beachfront, Selene Oceanfront Residences has been thoughtfully designed by to embody the true definition of “Coastal Brilliance.” Let’s take a closer look.

Contemporary Architecture Featuring Iconic Walls of Glass

Renowned for his extensive use of glass, Karp created a space at Selene that truly reflected the natural beauty of Fort Lauderdale’s tropical-modern style. Every detail of these two landmark towers was designed to celebrate the magic of oceanfront and cityscape views from every vantage point. The sweeping lines and graceful arcs of the building’s dramatic exterior create a feeling of complete transparency and light, while iconic white glass reflects the surrounding views of the sky, ocean, and landscaping.

An Elevated Amenity Deck Overlooking Fort Lauderdale Beach

Creating a site plan design that would fully utilize the elevated deck between the two buildings was high on Karp’s list of design objectives. The buildings fully maximize the natural sunlight as it passes above the elevated amenity deck. Residents will see that vision while relaxing amongst the soft ocean breezes and inspiring views. A resort-style pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, a 75’ lap fitness pool with sweeping views of the Intracoastal, a pet park, spa, and a poolside shaded bar provide ample ways for residents to enjoy the favorable local climate. The innovative amenity plan also includes indoor and outdoor resident gathering spaces, a private theater room, a state-of-the-art fitness center, and a shared work-from-home business center named The Hub. Just an elevator ride away on the ground level, the oceanfront community will also be home to a high end 5,400 sq ft oceanside public dining venue.

Residences Rooted in Oceanfront Elegance

The stunning beauty of Selene carries through to each of the 194 luxurious residences. Each two- and three-bedroom residence boasts soaring floor-to-ceiling windows and flow-through floorplans providing both cityscape and ocean views. All residences will have expansive private terraces measuring up to 10’ deep with glass railings to give unparalleled, unobstructed views of the turquoise water and world-renowned beaches. A limited collection of just 10 penthouse residences offer four additional floorplans on the top two levels of the building.
