Riverwalk Residences of Las Olas, a luxury senior project.

Ocean Land Investments has revealed plans for its Riverwalk Residences of Las Olas, a luxury senior project proposed for downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Ocean Land, led by Jean Francois Roy, is under contract to buy the site at 333 North New River Drive East, which went before the Fort Lauderdale Development Review Committee this week. Roy said he will respond to the committee’s questions before the project goes to the city’s planning and zoning board later this year.

Records show Riverwalk Plaza Associates owns the nearly 33,000-square-foot site. The company paid $624,000 for the property, which houses the four-story Riverwalk Plaza building, in 1986.
