The Oceanage

How it all began!

This is where we live —simply put, the Oceanage was an instant success and remains so today! It all started in 1972 with Realtec , Inc., a Ft. Lauderdale based community land development firm, which was a subsidiary of Certainteed-Frank Winnert, one of the nation’s largest producers of building materials. The Oceanage casual design concept was created by Fort Lauderdale architect Donald Castner. According to press reports, all sales records were broken and all 180 units were quickly sold prior to completion of the floor plans! The easy lifestyle offered many comforts of a single residence, while avoiding the formality of high rise structure. Absent were elevators, lobby, and long corridors….the appeal was immediate….plus 800 feet of golden beach.

800 feet of private oceanfront to the east, a natural lagoon environment with dockage to the west, the luxurious Lago Mar Resort to the south and a tropical association owned park to the north. Take a close look at the aerial photo, and you will realize that a unique oasis like this does not exist anywhere else along Florida’s Gold Coast. This complex has by far the lowest density of units in the area, and features one of the longest strips of private oceanfront in Fort Lauderdale. Its two story structures with cabana style architecture and lush natural foliage exude a relaxed tropical attitude, and amenities like parking in front of your front door adds to the ease of the Oceanage lifestyle.
