Welcome to Las Olas River House
Upscale amenities, elegant touches and a true downtown lifestyle await at this once tallest building in Fort Lauderdale.
The name says quite a bit in itself: Las Olas River House. Tucked on the edge of the New River in Downtown Fort Lauderdale and built in 2004, this contemporary condo tower soars 42 stories. Up until 2017, it was the tallest building in town. Location-wise, it’s tucked just south of Las Olas Boulevard between Southeast 1st Avenue and Las Olas Way. In total, it has 287 units with 1- 2- and 3-bedroom options. They come in eight different sizes, spanning 1,200 to 4,000+ square feet. And, yes, there are penthouses that stretch 10,000+ square feet as well.
The vibe is elegant and contemporary bliss, with a glass façade. The spot was designed by the Sieger Suarez architecture firm and internal design from Interiors by Steven G. You’re charmed at first entry by its grandeur lobby, featuring a serene waterfall, high-ceilings, slate walls, a koi pond and a total Feng Shui vibe. And that’s just the beginning of all the amenities and magic within the individual units that await at Las Olas River House.
