A demolition project has started that will include the demolition of the former 8-story, 388-room Hilton Fort Lauderdale Airport Hotel.
The first building to go is the former Dania Boat Sales, demolition should take about a week.
The demolition of the hotel’s parking garage is tentatively set to start on January 2nd and take about a month to complete. The demolition of the hotel itself is scheduled for April 7 and will wrap up in June.
