Winnipeg Jets’ Jacob Trouba just bought a preconstruction condo in Fort Lauderdale’s Auberge Beach Residences and Spa for $1.4 million, according to a release.

At the age of 18, Trouba was drafted by the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the 2012 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Since then, he has had a successful career playing in over 270 games, assisting in 74 and scoring 31 goals, as well as representing Team USA.

His future 1,355-square-foot condo traded for about $1,030 per square foot. The one-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is located at the south tower of the planned 171-unit, two-tower development at 2200 North Ocean Boulevard.

Auberge, developed by Related Group, Fortune International Group and The Fairwinds Group, is expected to open by early 2018. Construction on the project began in 2015.

Trouba’s new home will feature a gourmet kitchen with Italian cabinetry and stone countertops as well as views of the Atlantic Ocean. Shared amenities at Auberge will include two restaurants, a spa, oceanfront swimming pools, a golf simulator and a gym. New York-based interior design firm Meyer Davis created the design.

Last month, the nearly completed development saw one of Broward’s priciest condo sales. An unidentified buyer agreed to pay a record $9.5 million for a penthouse at the project. Former Miami Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino is also a future resident.

Florida Panthers’ Aaron Ekblad is another NHL hockey player to call Broward County home. Last month the Canadian ice hockey player bought a three-story house in Fort Lauderdale’s Las Olas Isles for $5.7 million.
