About North Lauderdale
North Lauderdale was originally grazing pasture for cows and horses of the Anderson Dairy Farm and also an agricultural area for the Lena Lyons Stringbean Farm. Recognizing a rare opportunity to work with a blank slate, famed architect Morris Lapidus turned his attention to planning a city that would become North Lauderdale. Lapidus gained international notoriety for launching the 1950's “ Miami Beach” style resort hotel. His design of the Fontainebleau Resort, the Eden Roc, and Americana helped create the style of Miami Beach. The flamboyant, curvy, idiosyncratic and immediately recognizable style became lodged in the American conscience when the Fontainebleau appeared in the 1964 James Bond classic Goldfinger. After hotels, Lapidus turned to design cities.
North Lauderdale became, “The City of Tomorrow”. Fifty years later, residents still benefit from his influence and vision, which can be seen in the whimsical “beacons” lending the city prominence and in the distinct, amoebic shape of Boulevard of Champions. The promise of affordable homes near the seaside ushered in a 10-year development boom in the 1970s. Where the rich and famous flocked to Miami Beach, regular families enamored with the Sun Belt, moved to North Lauderdale. Thousands moved in and neighborhood after neighborhood came to life. The city’s character took shape of a younger, family-oriented community where most social interaction took place after work around a softball field. North Lauderdale is a city where a week of hard work is rewarded with sunshine-filled weekends and family barbecues.
