Bal Harbour is a unique Fort Lauderdale neighborhood just North of Sunrise Blvd. bordered by the Middle River to the East and US-1 to the West. Most of the community is located on the waterfront with nice views of the Middle River. The community is starting to feel the benefit of the pending bridge construction at Sunrise Blvd. (August 2013) which will increase the bridge height to just over 10 feet allowing for much larger boats to pass underneath. Bal Harbour is in close proximity to shopping, restaurants, the beach and downtown Fort Lauderdale.
