Norwich Partners Completes AC Hotel Fort Lauderdale Sawgrass Mills/Sunrise

Global design firm Stanec has announced the completion of the eight-story, 174-room AC Hotel Fort Lauderdale Sawgrass Mills/Sunrise in Sunrise, FL. The hotel was developed by Norwich Partners with Stanec serving as the project’s architect and structural mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineer of record, working in partnership with interior design firm Group One Partners.

Featuring a modern design, the hotel’s façade has alternating textured panels alongside the windows. The hotel lobby includes an AC Lounge featuring a communal space with a full bar and an outside terrace. Manicured landscaped areas define the walkways around the building and lead guests to the mall’s high-end Colonnade Outlets and nearby restaurants. The hotel also offers a rooftop deck with bar, lounge, cascading water fountain and 24-hour fitness center. The property is located at 1870 Sawgrass Mills Circle.

“Sawgrass Mills is undergoing a multi-million-dollar renovation. The new AC Hotel Fort Lauderdale Sawgrass Mills/Sunrise, which is the first AC brand in Broward County, fits perfectly with the mall’s new modern feel that will appeal to local and international visitors alike,” said Jennifer Llop-Noy, associate and project manager at Stantec’s Miami office. “We’re proud to have worked with Norwich Partners to bring this new hotel to the community.”
