0nly steps to downtown Fort Lauderdale, Las Olas Boulevard, and the historic Riverfront area, there is a landmark revival of a once bedraggled, unkempt, and forgotten neighborhood, historic Flagler Heights is undergoing a major overhaul to become one of the most innovative and trend setting areas of Broward County. Newly named Flagler Village this project that encompasses 151 acres of what is the eastern portion of the City of Fort Lauderdale's Community Redevelopment Area, was merely a dream to the developers who began to purchase and assemble properties in the downtrodden neighborhood a few years ago. At that time, the properties were acquired for a very fair value, thus allowing the developers to convey the new neighborhood projects to the first residents of Flagler Village at a reasonable price.
The boundaries of the Village are Broward Boulevard on the south end, north to Sunrise Boulevard on the north end, and from US 1 (Federal Highway) west to the East Coast Railway Corridor. The western most section (about 4 blocks) of the neighborhood will be called "FAT Village". This stands for Flagler Art & Technology Village. The borders will be NW 6th Street on the north side, to NW 4th Street on the south side, and from North Andrews Avenue on the east side, to the railroad tracks on the west side.
