Happy Birthday, Fort Lauderdale!

Founded on March 27th, 1911, today marks 107th Birthday of Fort Lauderdale.

While reading about Fort Lauderdale history, I found interesting fact, that during first census after city incorporation, the 1920 census, registered population of 2,065. And only 5 years later, in census 1925, it was recorded 5,625 people in Fort Lauderdale. As of census 2010, there were 165,521 people living in Fort Lauderdale.

 

 

Guitar-Shaped Hotel at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Guitar-shaped hotel is being build at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & casino in Hollywood, FL.

Last fall Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood had an event to celebrate the building of the new guitar-shaped hotel.

At the even there was a display with the model of the new guitar-shaped hotel . The model of the new hotel was maybe 3 feet tall, when the future building will be 450 feet into the sky. It was hard to imagine this big guitar-shaped building actually being build.

But now we can see the progress. Only few month had passed after the event to show the small display model . Finally, the new guitar-shaped hotel is actually getting it’s shape.

New construction highrise condominium building in Downtown Fort Lauderdale is almost done.

I love the what is done with the outside walls of the garage at the bottom of the building. But still… the beauty of the highrise building is by going up high. I would like to know how many floors it has.

I imagine the view from the top floor is going to be amazing.
