Ocean Land Investments on Wednesday celebrated the official launch for AquaVue, the company’s fifth Aqua-branded waterfront condominium in Fort Lauderdale. Marc-Andre Roy, son of Ocean Land Investments President Jean Francois Roy, is spearheading the development of the five-story boutique building located at 133 Isle of Venice Drive in the Las Olas Isles.

At the cocktail reception, Ocean Land Investments said top brokers and buyers enjoyed the sunset view of yachts docked along the waterway and relaxed on outdoor furnishings from Saccaro USA, a designer and manufacturer of Brazilian indoor and outdoor home furniture.

AquaVue will feature eight loft-inspired residences with three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths, each spanning 2,850 square feet to 2,864 square feet. Pricing will range from $1.475 million to $1.625 million, with prices per square foot from $515 to $570 and averaging $545, Marc-Andre Roy had told The Real Deal.

Designed as double-corner units with expansive terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows, the residences will have views of the Intracoastal Waterway and downtown Fort Lauderdale. Each unit also will include a private boat slip that can accommodate vessels up to 50 feet, with deep-water canal access to the ocean. Kitchens will be equipped with Italian cabinetry, quartz countertops, and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.

Amenities will include a heated saltwater pool, outdoor barbecue area, outdoor storage space for watersports equipment, and garage bike storage.

Renaldo Borges is the architect for the project, Roy said. Construction is expected to begin in April.

In addition to AquaVue, Ocean Land Investments recently opened the sold-out AquaVita and continues construction on the 16-unit AquaLuna, which topped off this summer, the 20-unit AquaMar and 35-unit AquaBlu. — Ina Cordle and Katherine Kallergis
