The developer of a luxury condo project in Fort Lauderdale is taking the unusual step of banning smoking inside units.

Buyers of AquaVita Las Olas condos can only light up cigars and cigarettes on unit balconies, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Local housing experts say this is the only such ban implemented in any of the condo projects under construction in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Dennis Eisinger, a co-developer of the 22-unit AquaVita, is also a real estate attorney who specializes in representing community associations. He told the Sun-Sentinel that many condo owners in other communities have complained about the impact of second-hand smoke.

AquaVita condo owners caught smoking inside their units would be subject to a fine of up to $100 by the community association. Habitual offenders could face legal action.

Prices at AquaVita range from $900,000 to $1.2 million. Six of the 22 units have been sold. [Sun-Sentinel]Eric Kalis
