Real estate development runs in the family as Marc-Andre Roy, son of leading developer Jean Francois Roy, launches AquaVue, his first waterfront luxury development with Ocean Land Investments

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Jan. 13, 2016)Ocean Land Investments has officially launched pre-construction sales for AquaVue – the company’s fifth Aqua-branded waterfront condominium in the Fort Lauderdale area. Marc-Andre Roy, son of Ocean Land Investments President Jean Francois Roy, is spearheading the development of this five-story boutique building located on the Isle of Venice in the Las Olas Isles.

“I was born and raised in South Florida and appreciate the wonderful lifestyle we have here,” says Marc-Andre Roy. “The Isle of Venice is a great location, especially for boaters. It’s close to everything yet quiet at the same time, making it ideal for everyone from younger professionals to empty-nesters.”

As his father rose to prominence as a leader in South Florida real estate development, MarcAndre Roy was exposed to this fast-paced, intense and competitive business, where risks and rewards come in equal measure. His passion for real estate grew by working for Ocean Land Investments through high school and college. Today, Marc-Andre and his father work side-by-side running the company’s day-to-day operations, and AquaVue is a symbolic passing of the baton from father to son – a chance for Marc-Andre to step up and lead a project from start to finish.

“He has a keen eye for the development process,” observes Jean Francois Roy. “Marc-Andre has a strong work ethic and innovative ideas that I believe will carry him far in this business. It’s a great honor as a father to see him follow in my footsteps, and formally launch his first solo development.”

Marc-Andre Roy earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Miami, where he focused on finance and real estate. He joined Ocean Land Investments as Director of Acquisitions and has played an integral role in bringing the firm’s AquaVita, AquaLuna, AquaMar and AquaBlu developments to fruition.

AquaVue continues Ocean Land Investments’ vision of creating modern, boutique luxury living experiences along Fort Lauderdale’s waterways. Located at 133 Isle of Venice Drive, it will feature eight luxurious, loft-inspired residences ranging from 2,850 to 2,864 square feet, and priced from $1.475 million. Construction is slated to begin in April 2016.

The building’s expansive, loft-inspired floor plans feature three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Designed as double-corner units featuring expansive terraces and floor-to-ceiling windows, the residences offer views of the Intracoastal Waterway and downtown Fort Lauderdale. Each residence includes a private boat slip that can accommodate vessels up to 50 feet, with deep-water canal access right to the ocean. Amenities include a heated saltwater pool, outdoor barbecue area, outdoor storage space for watersports equipment, and garage bike storage.

AquaVue’s open layouts further expand via sliding doors to the master and guest bedrooms, which can be opened for seamless flow and cross-ventilation. Deluxe kitchens are equipped with Italian cabinetry, quartz countertops, and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, including induction cooktops by Wolf. Spacious bedrooms include walk-in closets and bathrooms feature designer finishes such as frameless, glass-enclosed showers. All residences will be delivered decorator-ready and have the option of being purchased furniture-ready. AquaVue is also walking distance to the beach and boasts unbeatable access to excellent shopping, dining and entertainment options along Las Olas Boulevard.

In addition to AquaVue, Ocean Land Investments recently opened the sold-out AquaVita and continues construction on AquaLuna, which topped off this summer and offers 16 residences, as well as the 20-residence AquaMar and 35-residence AquaBlu, both of which have broken ground.

“As I launch AquaVue, my first development, I strive to build upon my father’s track record, upholding the reputation of integrity for which Ocean Land Investments has become recognized over the past 26 years,” Marc-Andre Roy adds.
