Las Olas, Live and Shop!
Las Olas Isles has a musical ring, as do the name of the islands that compose this multiple waterfront property area where all homes are waterfront properties - Isle of Palms, Royal Plaza Drive, Coral way, San Marco, Lido, Coconut Isles, Bontona Ave., and the combination of Isle of Capri and Mola.
Drive through this neighborhood and enjoy some of Florida's best tropical landscape designs by award winning landscape designer, Luis Llenza.
Many homes date back to the '30s. They have been updated, yet maintain their early character, according to Jeanne Glenn, Communication Director for Las Olas Isles Homeowner's Association. There is close proximity to the beaches as well as wonderful Las Olas Boulevard's shopping area, the Broward Theatre of Performing Arts and the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art.
Although there are some multi-dwellings and low-rise condominiums along Las Olas Boulevard, the community maintains a single-family dwelling profile.
The Homeowner's Association consists of 300 member households. The president of the association believes the addition of a security patrol is an important factor in Las Olas Isles steps to ensure homeowners' security.
The Association has been diligently fighting to get wires placed underground. Congressman Clay Shaw was instrumental in getting Florida Power & Light to bury big, ugly concrete poles that were on Las Olas Boulevard, placed underground. It really has improved the whole look of Las Olas Boulevard, Jeanne Glenn said.
