Croissant Park Administration Building, Fort Lauderdale

The Croissant Park Administration Building is a historic site in Fort Lauderdale. Built in the mission revival architectural style in 1923, the architect is believed to be Francis Abreu. Abreu designed many Fort Lauderdale buildings during the 1920s. The L-shaped two-story poured concrete building features a textured stucco exterior and concrete lamps on the roof corners.

The building has a cut corner entrance and a flat roof with parapets. Inside a cypress wood staircase leads to the second floor which has Dade Pine floors. G. Frank Croissant used this building as headquarters for sales of the Croissant Park development. Croissant Park was built from 1,200 acres that Croissant bought in 1924 for $1.25 million. It was one of the largest Fort Lauderdale developments during the Florida land boom of the 1920s.

The Croissant Park Administration Building was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 2001.
