FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Riva and Douglas Elliman Development Marketing celebrated the completion of Fort Lauderdale’s newest luxury waterfront condominium by hosting a grand opening party attended by more than 400 VIP guests, including a who’s who of luxury real estate movers and shakers, Riva residents and city officials, on Thursday, June 7.
A highlight of the night was rubbing elbows with two extraordinarily talented celebrities. Michelle Bernstein, a James Beard Foundation award-winning chef, best-selling author and television personality catered the soirée and captivated guests with a live cooking demonstration, preparing one of her signature dishes in Riva’s ‘Cucina,’ a two-story, one-of-a-kind, private owners’ lounge. Miami’s hometown hero, international music sensation and entrepreneur, DJ Irie, the official DJ of the Miami HEAT and the go-to entertainer of the stars, mesmerized the crowd with his signature style and irresistible dance grooves.
“It was an honor to host an event of this magnitude which was attended by many distinguished guests who traveled from New York and beyond to toast this milestone,” said Vivian Bonet, Riva developer representative with HS Consulting Group.
Attendees of Riva’s summer soirée not only sampled an array of Bernstein’s divine culinary creations and were entranced by DJ Irie’s infectious enthusiasm and larger-than-life personality, they also enjoyed private tours of several move-in ready, fully-furnished, exclusive residences. Sponsors include Audi Fort Lauderdale, FB Marine Group and Woodford Reserve.
”We are excited about the momentum we have been able to achieve as we enter into the summer months,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman’s Florida Brokerage. “We look forward to achieving great success at Riva Fort Lauderdale Residences.”
Comprised of 100 exquisitely designed residences, the 15-story luxury condominium overlooks the serene Middle River and George English Park. Residences range from two-bedroom units priced from the $700s to penthouses starting at $2 million.
Lifestyle amenities include a swimming pool with river views, resort-style spa with treatment rooms, sundeck and state-of-the-art fitness center. The riverwalk promenade leads to two 70-foot dog runs, an owners’ dock with private boat slips and RIVA’s electric water taxi. A main attraction is the two-story, luxury owners’ lounge, complete with a wine room and “Cucina,” perfect for hosting grand scale events or private dinner parties.
RIVA’s on-site sales center is open daily at 1180 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, 33304. Visit riva-condo.com or call (954) 233-3288.
