Poinsettia Heights


Fort Lauderdale has many hidden gems when it comes to neighborhoods. One of the best kept secrets is Poinsettia Heights. Amazing landscaping, bright home colors and a real feeling of belonging to a community make this a special place to live. Poinsettia Heights is a quiet and unassuming neighborhood that, due to existing regulations, is zoned single family residents and allows townhomes and condos only along the two main thoroughfares. The neighborhood is in the northeast section of Fort Lauderdale and its boundaries are west of Federal Highway, north of Sunrise Boulevard and adjacent to the neighborhoods of Lake Ridge and Middle River Terrace. The original development, called “North Ridge,” was built by Gill Construction Company right after World War II in the 1940s and early 1950s.Today the simple, brightly painted homes line the streets from 15th Avenue on the west to 20th Avenue and Lake Melba on the east. The Middle River forms a natural boundary to the north and 13th Street separates it from the neighboring Lake Ridge.
