Welcome to La Rive
With just three dozen units, this is where world-class amenities, exclusivity and sweeping vistas all beautifully mesh.
A Fort Lauderdale Beach icon since 2005, La Rive is less about a mega-towering presence and more about incredible exclusivity and location. Stretching 10 stories on the Intracoastal side of Fort Lauderdale Beach, this building includes 36 total units coming in two and three-bedroom options. It is located on Bayshore Drive on Fort Lauderdale Beach, north of Terramar Street and just south of Vistamar Street.
The building was designed by Miami-based Luis Revuelta, with interior touches by Brian Morris. The luxury vibe begins at first sight and is then carried through its concierge/doorman welcome. If the two-story lobby doesn’t get you, it’s expanse of amenities – spanning a private pool to lush tropical gardening – absolutely will. And that’s just the beginning of what’s at La Rive, let alone the nearby lifestyle it offers.

Designer is the keyword at La Rive. Upon completion, each residence was finished with top-line appliances and European touches spanning marble to elegant veneers to dabs of sophisticated color. Floor-to-ceiling glass dons each unit, with water vistas put at the forefront. The kitchen is each residence’s undeniable anchor with standard granite counters, a modern backsplash, Italian cabinetry, and chef’s quality appliances. Nine-to-ten-foot ceilings and glass draped balconies are also standard. Each unit has certainly experienced its own touches through the years, but its beginning chapter is hard to mimic in Fort Lauderdale and beyond.
Dining, Entertainment and Shopping
As you’d imagine and being five blocks west of the ocean, a number of entertainment, shopping and dining options are nearby to La Rive.
Within the area of Central Beach, you’ll find Archibald’s Village Bakery for fresh baked goods, Wine Garden for an afternoon outdoor happy hour and Village Café for round-the-clock bistro-esque bites.
Along A1A and within a 10-minute stroll south are the world-class dive bar Elbo Room, an outpost of the beloved Fort Lauderdale-bred bakery Gran Forno and the Mediterranean-infused Casablanca Café.
For everyday needs, your go-to may be the Publix on Sunrise Boulevard, which is just across the street from The Galleria mall. Many other grocery options await along US-1 / Federal Highway within minutes west, including Fresh Market, Whole Foods, Winn-Dixie and Trader Joe’s
On Las Olas Boulevard and without having to venture too deep into downtown traffic, you can easily access Rocco’s Tacos, Bombay Darbar and The Floridian diner.
Things to Do
As for where you’ll opt to take your scenic strolls? Well, that’s up to you, but you have so many options by calling La Rive home. The promenade along Fort Lauderdale Beach is loaded with sidewalk space, a dedicated bike lane and – for yoga and an ocean-view picnic – Las Olas Oceanside Park (at the intersection of A1A and Las Olas Boulevard). Speaking of Las Olas Boulevard, its epicenter is within a longer stroll, with picturesque Las Olas Isles neighborhoods enroute.
On the cultural front and if you call La Rive home, you may want to opt for a Bonnet House Museum & Gardens annual membership. The historic residence is just two blocks northeast of La Rive and hosts regular concerts, events, lectures and seasonal experiences.
