Wilton Station creates sophisticated village living in the Fort Lauderdale area.

Coming in January 2004 is Wilton Station, a $100 million upscale residential village designed to provide a complete sense of community--a place for singles, couples, and families to call home. Wilton Station, LLC, the developer, will offer residents upscale village living in an exciting community setting.

Wilton Station in Wilton Manors

Nestled on approximately 10 acres of prime real estate, Wilton Station is perfectly located in the heart of Wilton Manors at Five Points. One of South Florida's most vibrant up and coming neighborhoods, Wilton Manors is just minutes from downtown Fort Lauderdale and its beachfront playground.

Wilton Manors is where opposites blend to form one of the quaintest cities in the Fort Lauderdale area. Also known as the Island City, Wilton Manors has a small-town feel, but is just moments from the conveniences of a big city. The people who live in Wilton Manors are friendly and some of the most sophisticated in the Fort Lauderdale area. Diversity is the keystone upon which this gay-friendly city was built.

Having researched the market carefully, Wilton Station LLC developers have planned a mixed-use thriving village, complete with top-drawer residential amenities and on-site boutique retailers. Because Broward County has the nation's second largest number of gay households (second only to San Francisco), the gay market was given a significant presence in the research. The result is a community that suits open-minded urban professionals of all backgrounds.

Wilton Station's signature clock tower and architecture are just the beginning of this sophisticated village. Wilton Station provides residents a level of luxury resort-style living simply not otherwise available in the area. And with luxury in mind, it is no wonder amenities play such an important role. Everything is designed around the idea of making it easy for people to be out and about in their own community.

Wilton Station offers residents a world of shopping and dining options within a short walk including popular local restaurants, a grocery store, a drug store, entertainment attractions and other everyday conveniences. But location is only one of the attractive qualities that have been carefully crafted into Wilton Station.

Amenities, Amenities and More Amenities!

Consider the 300 feet of picturesque waterfront boardwalk with Intracoastal access, which allows ample opportunity for waterway activities, including rafting, canoeing, kayaking, or small craft boating. Or, picture a stroll out along the cobbled "Village Lane," to chat with neighbors or make a penny-wish at any one of the seven sparkling fountains found throughout the grounds. Even four-legged friends can enjoy one or both of the two fenced pet recreational areas.

Focusing on the details, developers have designed an extraordinary amount of amenities into every nook and alcove in this gated community. Lower-level parking will keep the car cool and you dry when necessary. And, a complete technology package keeps the world at your fingertips. But the crowning jewel in the Wilton Station repertoire of amenities is CLUB WS, a multi-million dollar fitness/entertainment/ water complex.

Club WS--Fitness, Entertainment and a Water Playground

Exclusively for residents and guests, CLUB WS features a massive multilevel clubhouse and water park-like pool and spa area. The 8,000-square-foot clubhouse provides approximately 4,000 square feet solely dedicated to a state-of-the-art fitness area complete with a full compliment of free weights, weight machines, aerobic machines with built-in video and locker/changing and massage rooms. With this much choice, any fitness routine is easy to maintain!

But Club WS is so much more. It is also a complete entertainment complex for residents to use and enjoy. With catering kitchens and reception areas suitable for elegant parties or commitment ceremonies, large or small, hosting an event is easy. Plus, a private screening theater is the perfect place for residents and guests to enjoy each other's company while sharing their love for a favorite movie. And, as if a contemporary fitness center and entertainment facility wasn't enough, Wilton Station developers and designers went full throttle on the expansive water playground. The colossal 90,000 gallon free-form heated pool is segmented to accommodate all types of swimmers. For the splash-in-the-sun type, there's a shallow beach-like area. For those more inclined for water volleyball or rafting, there is an expansive swimming area. And for the hard-core lap swimmers there is 70 feet dedicated just for lap swimming. This sprawling watery realm is fringed with poolside cabanas, two refreshing spas; outdoor rinsing showers; a generous number of lounge chairs and tables; a covered tiki hut and a tropical rock waterfall rising from the depths out of the glistening waters.

Home Sweet Home

Designed for optimal natural lighting, the five residential and one mixed-use buildings feature a wide selection of customizable floor plans including multi-level Brownstones, Loft-style units, traditional single-level Village Homes, and dramatic Tower Suites with rooftop terraces and sweeping vistas. All Wilton Station homes include 10-foot ceiling heights, oversized cook's kitchens, 8-foot French door-like sliders for all main rooms, entertainment-size terraces (multiple terraces and balconies in many units) and technology packages.

The roomy Brownstone Town Homes feature two bedrooms, plus a convertible room for office, library or media uses. While Village Homes range in size, they all offer spacious entertainment-sized kitchens, dining and living areas. Main Street Lofts offer trend setting layouts, high ceilings and versatile living spaces. Floor plans for the Terrace Lofts are similar to those of the Main Street Lofts, but with an added emphasis on outdoor entertaining or sunning on oversized terraces. And the Tower Suites provide expansive single-level living and include exceptional rooftop terraces with panoramic views.

Wilton Station is committed to creating a first-class mixed use residential and retail village featuring condominiums homes and a recreational amenities package of a size and quality second to none. This world-class village within the city of Wilton Manors creates a pedestrian friendly environment in one of the fastest growing areas in Broward County. Stop by soon and see our elegant urban village for yourself.
