Imperial Point is a beautiful, highly sought after neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, FL. One of the most appealing aspects of this community is location; this area is located east of I-95, just west of Federal Highway near the beaches, downtown areas, A rated schools, and most notably, Pinecrest private school. This is one of the few areas located on the east side of Fort Lauderdale with a family neighborhood feel to the community. The area is comprised of single family homes, town homes, and a few residential condo buildings. Imperial Point is one of the most well known family neighborhoods on the east side of Fort Lauderdale.
