New Las Olas Parking Garage on Fort Lauderdale Beach to Open on December 20
Oceanside Lot to close as construction begins on first of two new waterfront parks
Fort Lauderdale - Get ready for the debut of the new Las Olas Parking Garage! Located on Fort Lauderdale Beach at 200 Las Olas Circle (on the north side of the Las Olas Bridge), the new parking facility will begin operating on Thursday, December 20, 2018.
On the same day that the Las Olas Parking Garage opens, the Oceanside Parking Lot, located at 400 Seabreeze Boulevard (corner of Las Olas Boulevard and A1A), will close and construction work will begin on the City’s new Oceanfront Park and Plaza, the first of two new waterfront parks coming to the beach.
Accessible from both Birch Road and Las Olas Circle, the Las Olas Garage is a state-of-the-art five-story facility that offers more than 650 parking spaces. Built by Skanska USA, the structure includes numerous amenities such as marquee signs displaying the number of available spaces, restrooms, bicycle lockers, 24-hour security, and an amenity deck on the top floor offering spectacular views of the Intracoastal and cityscape. An iconic façade wraps the building’s exterior, simulating the motion of waves and featuring a signature LED lighting component that blends cutting edge technology with architectural beauty.

The City of Fort Lauderdale has made a new digital parking permit feature available for all of our neighbors.
The digital permitting feature will allow you to apply for a Residential Beach Parking Permit online. Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed by one of our parking customer service representatives. If the application is approved, then you will receive an email directing you back to our parking portal to pay for your permit. Once you pay for your permit, your account will be updated to show that you have purchased a Residential Beach Parking Permit, which is valid for one year. You no longer have to apply for, renew, or pick up your permit from Parking Services. You can do everything online and your license tag now serves as your permit.
For more information on this feature, please contact parking customer service at
954-828-3700 or firstname.lastname@example.org
