Translated from Spanish as “River View,” the prestigious community of Rio Vista features about ten decades of Florida architecture and real estate. Rio Vista was founded in the early 20s when developer C.J. Hector purchased the land from a woman named Mary Brickell. Short after, the population grew and Rio Vista was the place to be. Today, Rio Vista is one of the most affluent neighborhoods of Fort Lauderdale close to downtown, Las Olas and the beach.
There are no condominiums in the neighborhood with the exception of a handful of multi-family. Rio Vista consists of roughly 1,000 homes many located in the quite fingers of the community with no fixed bridges and direct ocean access.
The tropical and lavish homes are a pleasure to the eye; no two houses look the same. Each home is unique in style and appeal. In addition to the astonishing collage of tropical architecture, Rio Vista offers residents a bike-friendly lane and a small park. Bottom-line, wherever you live in Rio Vista, you will be living in prime South Florida real estate.
