RIVA’s 400-feet of riverfront inspired both its Italian name and contemporary Italian design making these exquisite Fort Lauderdale Condos. The 15-story tower follows the gentle curve of the shoreline, and faces east across the river over two very large parks – with unobstructed views all the way to the ocean. With only 10 residences per floor, each opens up onto broad, deep, covered terraces and panoramic views.
A typical size is over 60-feet long and over 10-feet deep, banded by glass rails and opening up from floor-to-ceiling glass walls along the living and sleeping rooms within. Terraces this large allows plenty of furniture space for outdoor living and dinner parties, so a summer kitchen is included in the design. The see-through panoramic feeling is continued in amenity areas such as the ground floor lobby. Here a porte cochere arrivals court brings guests to the valet parking, where they enter a 6-foot wide lobby with floor-to-ceiling glass walls and a direct view to the river. The stone and glass finish is complemented with classic furnishings.
There is also a lobby floor café and watersports center for residents, as well as a riverfront promenade. Every contemporary condo design seems to include a resident’s gym and spa, and the RIVA Fort Lauderdale Condos takes it to the next level. The fourth floor offers a deep outdoor deck over the river, featuring a 65-foot lap pool, caterer and sun lounge. Other areas of this deck offer gardens, a fire pit lounge, and even a dog walk.
Even RIVA Fort Lauderdale Condos’ entry is unique. Set back over a football field from the road, it is reached by a distinctive entrance and then a landscaped 250-foot drive to the water and the arrival court. All resident parking is set with this secured garage. One of the more distinctive design features of the residences is the private elevator foyers within many of the actual residences. There are also no long corridors, nor long waits with four elevators serving only 10 residences per floor.
These are just a few of the subtle but welcome innovations that are part of RIVA Fort Lauderdale Condos’ thoughtful design.
