Rising young hockey professional Jacob Trouba, a former first-round pick who currently plays for the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets, has joined Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino as celebrity buyers at the upcoming Auberge Beach Residences & Spa Fort Lauderdale.
Trouba purchased a $1.4 million unit at the beachfront condominium rising at 2200 North Ocean Boulevard. A collaboration between The Related Group, Fortune International Group and the Fairwinds Group, the project’s 17-story North tower topped off recently and is expected to be completed in 2018. The North Tower has two remaining units while the South Tower is over 60 percent sold.
The 23-year-old’s residence will be in the South Tower, overlooking the ocean. It has one bedroom, two bathrooms, and a den.
In July, the penthouse at Auberge sold for $9.5 million ($1,670 per square foot), a record sale for a condo in the area. Building amenities include a spa, a restaurant, a Napa Valley Wine Cellar, a fitness center, a Golf golf simulator, a children’s playroom, and a club room with multimedia facilities, billiards and gaming tables.
