Harbour Twenty-Six tries again for covered yacht dockage

Developers will resubmit plans for Harbour Twenty-Six in Fort Lauderdale for yachts up to 155 feet in length. The 26 slips include covered dockage for 120-, 118- and 95-foot yachts as well as a combination of smaller boats for a maximum of 61. Originally set for sale, the slips will now be offered for rent.

Formerly Summerfield Boat Works, the property is located on the northern bank of the South Fork of the New River, across from Lauderdale Marine Center. It has gone through several attempts at development, but has sat vacant for years.

The most recent site plan expired when construction did not occur within the allotted period. Current drawings have few changes from those submitted in early 2015, according to Daniel Fee, principal engineer of CDI Engineering and Planning. Lee spoke last night at the regular Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board meeting. Members of the public and the board saw plans and requested clarification on how the seawall would be constructed, the number of boats allowed, parking, and navigational access to private homes on the channel on the north side of the property. Fee said he would present the concerns to the developers.

Lee said he has been involved with the project since 2007 which led to the plan’s original approval in May of 2008. One of the next steps toward resubmission of the application is a meeting with the city’s Development Review Committee on May 23.
