Oakland Park Celebrates Topping Off of Sky Building

Oakland Park celebrated a significant milestone last week with the topping-off of the Sky Building. Dozens gathered at the future home of Oakland Park's City Hall to commemorate construction reaching the top floor of the building and recognize everyone who has contributed towards this significant accomplishment. Attendees were invited to sign a pillar on the ground floor of the building to mark the occasion. 

The Sky Building is an innovative mixed-use project that will support local businesses and create a vibrant destination downtown. Through a public-private partnership with NR Investment, Oakland Park will be the landmark tenant in a new City Hall on Park Lane East.

Moving City Hall is a symbolic step to relocate services across Dixie Highway to the west side of Oakland Park to strike a greater balance of operations where more of the City's population resides. The City is making significant investments in the West to demonstrate commitment to the broader community and a desire to provide resources and opportunities to help all residents and businesses thrive and succeed.

The Sky Building will include residential units, "live/work" spaces, commercial space, and public parking.

The project is expected to enhance property values downtown and spur further investments to create new retail, office, entertainment, dining, and housing opportunities. The project also supports transit-oriented development that will improve quality of life by promoting mass transit, walkability, and sustainability.
