About This Project

Opening in 1965, the Pier 66 tower represents the evolution of Ft. Lauderdale’s tourism industry to one which was vibrant and cosmopolitan. Crowned with a star-burst rotating restaurant/lounge which turned 360 degrees every 66 minutes, Pier 66’s tower was the first building in Ft. Lauderdale to exceed 15 stories.


We would like to thank Langan Engineering and Tavistock Development for their support of this effort.
