Palm Beach Luxury Waterfront Real Estate Increases

January 25, 2013

We are seeing an increase in luxury waterfront real estate developments and sales in Palm Beach County this year. New waterfront buildings are going up and luxury properties have been selling quickly.  

One new building up for sale these days is Casa Costa located between Palm Beach and Boca Raton. This luxury waterfront condominium tower is right on the edge of the Intracoastal Waterway. Residents will enjoy magnificent water views.

The Casa Costa will include two condominium towers with spacious two and three bedroom residences. Residences will include floor to ceiling windows, island kitchens, custom Italian cabinetry, granite countertops and spacious private balconies.

Another new luxury project located in Palm Beach is The Ritz-Carlton Residences. This luxury project will include two beautiful condominium towers located right on the beach. Recently, twenty five million dollars worth of condo units were sold bringing the developments sales to 70 percent.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences were originally the 2700 North Ocean Drive condominiums. They were later purchased by Lionheart Capital who brought in Ritz-Carlton to manage the property. The managing partner, Ophir Sternberg learned that the property was also home to sea turtles in the area, which is where they nest.

“When we bought, we weren’t aware that this part of the coastline was so heavily used for turtle nesting,” Sternberg said. “Initially we thought this was a liability, but we said ‘let’s’ make it a positive.”

Lionheart invested about one hundred thousand to protect the turtles. This paid for turtle-friendly, amber-colored outdoor lights, and new beach furniture that could be removed at night.

The biggest problem facing turtle hatchlings are the bright lights on the beach at night. The baby turtles are drawn to the light instead of the ocean, which is how they die.

Residents will be educated about the turtles and their nesting season through a newsletter.
