Lauderdale Yacht Club Clubhouse FT. LAUDERDALE, FL
With demolition of the previous clubhouse completed, construction of the new the two-story structure is underway. Adjoining the new building will be an existing clubhouse wing with a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, which Miller built in 2015. A spacious main dining room on the first floor will be expandable to include the smaller Cove Harbor room. Also on the ground floor will be the Abenaki Lounge, the Cypress Bar and the Wine Room, plus children’s play room, club shop and covered terrace. In addition to administrative offices, the second floor will feature the Burgee Bar, the Commodore Room and the Gold Room with covered and uncovered terrace areas offering panoramic views. Upscale finishes by craftsmen will include tongue and groove ceilings, custom millwork and intricate and varied tile patterns. On each floor, glass door track systems will enable the club to open the glass wall between the interior and the terrace, extending the space.
The tennis and fitness facilities and swimming pool are operating on regular schedules during construction. The project team is taking great care to provide convenience, comfort and safety for club members, while dealing with challenges such as the site’s limited space for staging materials.
