Easily accessible to several major highways, Lauderhill is a lively city located in Broward County, Florida. It is not only popular among families, but also among corporate interests dealing in a wide range of businesses. The city of more than 71,000 residents is bordered by Tamarac and Lauderdale to the north and northeast, Plantation to the south, and the City of Sunrise to the west. It is an important community in the Miami metro area covering a total land area of just about 8.5 square miles.
Lauderhill is one of two major developments in America whose developments were mainly traced to off-the-shelf architectural designs – the other is Montauk in New York. The designs by Andrew Geller were on display to the public at the popular departmental store chain Macy’s. Lauderhill was developed by Herbert Sadkin, the same developer who successfully built homes in Montauk between 1963 and 1964. The popular Inverrary Country Club, built in 1970, helped to boost the popularity of the community.
Sadkin originally called the town Sunnydale. A friend of his, William Safire, was said to have convinced him into changing the name given its seeming similarity to a Brooklyn neighborhood. Before Lauderhill was chosen, the town developer had protested that the area had no hills. Safire reportedly responded thus: “There are probably no dales in Lauderdale, either!” That was how the current name was adopted.
As of 2010 U.S. Census, there were 66,887 people living in Lauderhill, revealing an increase in population by about eight times from the level in 1970. A more recent estimate showed there are more than 71,500 now living in the city, which is home to many people born outside the United States. A significant percentage of residents are from the West Indies, most notably Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and Haiti. Most of those living in Lauderhill are relatively young. The median age was calculated at 35 years in 2000.
The most popular communities in the city include Inverrary, Environ, Manors of Inverrary, International Village and Castle Apartments. The Inverrary neighborhood served mainly as a Jewish retirement community and vacation home for snowbirds until the early 1990s. But it has become more diverse as people of different races now live there. Lauderhill is home to the Inverrary Country Club of the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic fame which has hosted many big names in the world of golf, including Jack Nicklaus, John Miller and Lee Trevino.
