Wel
come to Imperial Point

In 1960, 62nd Street (Cypress Creek Road) was a pond with fish and birds and alligators in the middle of a landscape of white sand.  There were acres of undeveloped land and unincorporated areas above Oakland Park Boulevard.  The following year, just a few miles up Federal Highway, behind an elaborate brick entrance way with a drive lined with lush landscape and ornate fountains, things were about to change.   Ground had been broken and the first phase completed for the model homes of what was to be known as IMPERIAL POINT.   Haft Gaines was the builder/developer and was later honored by Life Magazine as the “Builders for Broward”.  They built 10

 

model homes on the “Street of Dreams” emphasizing customization along with quality craftsmanship.  Buyers were able to determine the every detail of their home, from the style of kitchen cabinet to the tile or marble in the bathroom.  Later phase homes had garden showers and sunken bathtubs.

Imperial Point was one of the first developments in the Country to be fully electric and boasted the latest General Electric appliances.  In 1964, Ronald Reagan (a spokesman for G.E. at the time) visited Imperial Point to demonstrate one of the first self-cleaning ovens.  When he tried it, it didn’t work!

Today, the majority of the 1470 homes have been updated. There are a few who still love the original terrazzo floors and the look of a carport.  The lovingly landscaped lots are mostly 80’ by 100’ and occupied by a single family home.   Skirted around the neighborhood are duplexes, apartments and condominiums.  The waterfront homes in the northeast section have ocean access with two fixed bridges. Imperial Point wasn’t designed on a grid so the streets curve and only a handful of them enter and exit the neighborhood.  It is also one of the few neighborhoods with sidewalks.

Imperial Point is conveniently nestled west of Federal Highway, north of N.E. 56th Street, east of N.E. 18th Avenue, and south of McNab Road. Incorporated into the neighborhood, are Coral Highlands, Westfield, and Colonial Ridge.   At the northeast corner, Broward Health Imperial Point Medical Center and the neighborhoods shaded oasis of the Dottie Mancini Park.  Restaurants, specialty shops, grocery stores, a hospital, a library, highly acclaimed schools, places of worship, countless service and special needs are all in a stone’s throw distance.
