neighborhood map

The Riverland neighborhood is a large, eclectic area on the west side of I-95 that includes many smaller neighborhoods but is known collectively as Riverland. The South Fork of the New River makes up the southern edge of the neighborhood with many canals extending northward. This neighborhood has many unique streets, properties, and hidden areas. There are larger, newer estates on the river, one-of-a-kind architectural masterpieces on small canals in a tropical forest, or smaller, mid-century homes on quiet streets. This is a great area to find a sweet deal on an ocean-access waterfront home.

Riverland is a very convenient area to live being right at the junction of I-95 and I-595, with commercial districts along Davie Blvd. to the north and State Road 7 to the west, and great schools within the neighborhood. There is even a yacht club with tennis courts, a pool, clubhouse, and a boat launch. You are two minutes from the highway, 10 minutes from downtown and the International Airport, and 20 from the beach.

From Riverland, you have to go under the I-95 fixed bridge with it’s 55’ clearance as well as Davie Blvd. and all of the downtown bridges, which open on demand to get to sea. The trip takes about 45 minutes. The SW 4th Ave bridge has a 20’ clearance, the railroad bridge is left up unless there is a train passing through, the S. Andrews Ave. bridge has a 21’ clearance, and the SE 3rd Ave. bridge is 16’. After this, you will still have to pass under the 17th St. Causeway with its 55’ clearance when it’s closed. It will open upon request anytime at 15 min. intervals if necessary. Waterfront comes in three varieties here, riverfront, no-fixed bridge canal, and the smaller canals behind fixed bridges. The river varies widely from 85’ to over 300’ wide. You can take up 1/3 of the width including your dock and boat. Lots have anywhere from 50-200’ of waterfront. You need 5’ of space on either side so if you have 100’ of waterfront, your dockage is only 90’. Depth varies so if you have a sailboat with a deep draft, check the nautical charts for accurate information. If you’re on the canals, they are 60-90’ wide and most lots have 65’ of waterfront. Be aware that property at the interior end of the canal sometimes only have around 30’ of waterfront and they can get a bit stagnant. There are nice homes on smaller canals perfect for powerboats or kayaks on the north side of Riverland Rd. Click here for a customized list of homes available in Riverland emailed directly to you.
