Cadence provided initial site planning and design, as well as design development services for Ocean Land Investments’ new luxury condo residences, AquaBlu, along the intracoastal waterway in Fort Lauderdale. Cadence worked along side architects, Borges + Associates, to develop a site appropriate design that blends the site with the architecture of this mid-rise condo tower. Construction was completed in early fall 2018.
Residents and guests are greeted with a vegetated arrival courtyard, designed with minimal hardscape impact and delivering all visitors a lush garden experience. The planting design includes a variety of native palms and understory, creating an indigenous coastal landscape that addresses the water’s edge. Specimen shade trees provide an instant canopy for pedestrians and an organized frontage for the neighborhood. Other resident amenities include a beach lounge and linear pool designed under a canopy of mature palms, all overlooking the natural beauty of the Bonnet House property.
