This project find me very nostalgic.
Back in 2008 when I moved in Palm Beach, with my family, we were living at 3590 South Ocean.
The 3550 was then a quaint Motel (Palm Beach Oceanfront Inn) where our family and friends used to stay while they were visiting us.
The hotel was not really great but the restaurant was serving really good food.
I remember last we went there was on January 1st 2014 to start the New Year at the ocean and close to the place we used to live in first place.
I was a little sad to see this place closing but I’m excited to see this beautiful new ‘small’ project.
The first new beachfront residential development on Palm Beach Island in more than a decade, 3550 South Ocean is moving apace, with a planned occupancy set for April 2019. Demand for the condominium’s oceanfront two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse homes has remained strong during construction. Current availability starts at $2.31 million.
The building’s developer, DDG has assembled a cast of acclaimed designers for 3550 South Ocean. The designers have teamed up to design the striking, yet timeless, contemporary beachfront building, with a sawtooth form that stretches east to west and enables each of the building’s 30 expansive residences to be bathed in natural light, and enjoy unparalleled ocean views and breezes.
“3550 South Ocean is a significant development for DDG as it represents a new phase of the company’s expansion as well as our first project in Florida,” said Joseph A. McMillan, Jr., CEO and Chairman of DDG. “Watching the building go vertical and achieve its full height has been incredibly exciting and we look forward to seeing its elegant and contemporary design come to life as we approach completion next year.” McMillan points to the continued number of businesses that have relocated to the area as a driving force behind his firm’s desire to enter the Gold Coast development market. “We see a significant growth opportunity,” said McMillan.
“Buyer response to 3550 South Ocean has been quite positive since the building came onto the market last year,” said Howard M. Lorber, Chairman, Douglas Elliman Realty LLC,. “It offers the rare opportunity of purchasing a newly built home directly on the beach, as well as situates residents extremely close to the world-class dining, shopping and leading cultural institutions Palm Beach is known and sought after for.”
Outfitted with every comfort and convenience imaginable, each home in the seven-story building features direct elevator access, private entry foyers, private balconies, direct water views and expansive layouts ranging from 2,700 to more than 3,000 square feet. Five gracious penthouses boast sweeping, private rooftops with plunge pools and outdoor kitchens for entertaining, as well as Atlantic Ocean views to the east and Intracoastal Waterway views to the west.
Hallmarks of the residential interiors designed by Champalimaud include open and expansive chef-caliber kitchens with custom oversize islands composed of intricate stonework, solid oak flooring, and top-of-the-line appliance and fixture packages. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows, open living areas, and sliding doors to private covered balconies enhance the natural light and water views and blur the line between indoor and outdoor living.
3550 South Ocean has a curated selection of lifestyle amenities exclusively for residents that include private beach access, a beachfront salt water swimming pool and sun terrace, a fitness studio with east-facing natural light, on-site surf board and stand-up paddleboard storage, private gated access and private parking.
The 3550 South Ocean sales gallery is at 205 South Ocean Boulevard, Manalapan. The on-site model is scheduled to open on Jan. 1.
