At the end of last year, Fort Lauderdale developer Dennis Eisinger banned smoking inside the units of his luxury condo project called AquaVita, the only development in Broward and Palm Beach counties to do so.

Now Eisinger has announced plans to build more homes for nonsmokers with partner developer Jean Francois Roy, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Sixteen smoke-free units are to be built at a new tower called Aqualuna on Isle of Venice Drive. The units are priced between $1.25 million and $2 million.

Another new Eisinger tower in the works, 1800 Las Olas at 60-80 Hendricks Isle, would have eight nonsmoking units priced between $1.2 million and $2.4 million.

Residents can only smoke on their balconies, and violators would be fined up to $100 by the community association. State law already bans condo residents from lighting up in common areas, but the law doesn’t extend to individual units.

Sales are scheduled to begin within the next six weeks, and the condos are slated to open at the end of 2015. [Sun-Sentinel] — Angela Hunt
