From May 1 through October 31, Fort Lauderdale beach is homage to sea turtle nesting season. These magnificent animals emerge from the surf at night to lay their eggs in nests dug into the dry sand, then return to the sea. Two months later, about a hundred baby turtles (hatchlings) emerge from each of these nests and crawl to the ocean. You will notice the Fort Lauderdale Beach boardwalk is built especially so these baby sea turtles cannot walk past the 12” high concrete wall into AIA traffic. Luckily, the local government put in place in 2003 an ordinance to protect sea turtles and their hatchlings. The purpose is to reduce the impacts of artificial coastal lighting on threatened and endangered sea turtles that nest on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale by restricting artificial lighting that disorients turtle hatchlings, causing them to crawl toward land rather than toward the ocean. The restrictions and constraints of this division shall be effective within the incorporated areas of Fort Lauderdale and apply to any coastal lighting activity that has the potential to adversely impact sea turtles within city limits. With the beach being your front yard if you were to own at Paramount you might be able to see a sea turtle nest or hatchings swim to shore during the peak turtle season from June through September. Another significant benefit to living a beach-style lifestyle.

Last but not least condominiums always have HOA fees. Paramount’s monthly maintenance fee offered by the developer is .90 cents per square foot of living area of the residence. It will include all amenities, water, sewer, cable television, internet service, common area building maintenance (interior and exterior).

These residences worth touring if you are in the market for a premier South Florida beachfront condominium with resort-style amenities. There are only two units remaining. Two penthouses with expansive two-stories of 6,000 square feet living space and 6,000 additional square feet outdoor space priced at $10 million each. Some of the units are being offered as resale.
