  • Winding along Las Olas Boulevard is an area called New River. Most tourists do not get off the main street of Las Olas Blvd or leave the beach, but New River is worth a stroll. Watch the boats as they...  more »
  • I just renewed my lease at the Vu! My experience living here in the past year has been great! The building is gorgeous. The amenities on the roof are the selling point for me. I use the grills on the rooftop often and they are always clean. The clubhouse has an amazing view and is great for hosting a get together with a full kitchen and options for TV/music! The gym is also well equipped and neat. The view of the ocean while running on the treadmill is awesome! The couple times I have needed a maintenance call, they were very prompt, polite and considerate of my pup. The staff does a great job of keeping the building clean, with decorations up for every season! The manager and leasing staff are very friendly and often put on events for the residents that include catered food and drinks. The building is also super pet friendly with a treat jar and "oops" cleaning station near the elevators! Lastly I felt very fortunate to have hunkered down at the Vu during hurricane Irma. The residents that stayed kept an eye on each other and we NEVER LOST POWER! Good job Krista and team!
  • Beautiful pool, nice workout area, smarmy manager. All the charm and class you'd expect of a building owned by vulture capitalists. I moved into my unit in January, and by May I noticed that the hallways were about 85 degrees. I asked Krista, the building manager, if she was aware. She replied, "It's harder to keep the building cool in the summer." Huh, ya don't say? Well it's hard to pay my $2,000+ rent, but somehow I find a way. Every question I asked of Krista was met with a sneer, as if I was a pest. A neighbor moved out during the year and stalked the building for a couple of weeks, pounding on my door one afternoon to scream at me about some issue with garbage. Security (and the courtesy officer) failed to warn him not to trespass, so he could come back any time. It would be nice to feel safe for $2k/month, but alas, this is another price you pay for the patina of luxury living. If you're thinking of spending an ungodly sum of money on rent, look a few blocks northeast at Camden Las Olas or the Waverly. Both are about $100-$200 cheaper. I regret not going to either of those buildings. There are plenty of expensive buildings downtown where you might be treated courteously.
  • Very pleasant place to live if you love animals. It's fun to stay at the lobby watching so many dogs going out for a walk!
