For more than a decade, longtime and would-be residents of tony Palm Beach Island have waited for a residential development that’s modern and amenity-filled, not to mention right on the beach. Well, now the wait is over as developers, brokers, and even the mayor of South Palm Beach herself recently celebrated the completion of 3550 South Ocean—Palm Beach’s newest building with luxury condos for sale.

As the first residential building here in more than 10 years, 3550 South Ocean had a lot to live up to, and award-winning real estate development firm DDG was up to the task. The company’s refined eye and attention to every detail have fashioned iconic buildings in New York and California that bear witness to partnerships with world-class architects and designers.

In the case of 3550 South Ocean, GS4studios, Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design, and Champalimaud Design joined forces with DDG to create homes that combine old-school Palm Beach style with a contemporary perspective. The result is an elegant structure marked by floor-to-ceiling glass windows that give every unit expansive views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, and plenty of Florida sunshine.

While Palm Beach’s natural wonder surrounds you at 3550 South Ocean, the well-curated amenities, including an on-site concierge, valet parking, private beach access, and an outdoor pool, also help set the project apart. As Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman’s Florida Brokerage, notes, 3550 South Ocean “offers the rare opportunity to purchase a new home directly on the beach with all of the lifestyle amenities one could wish for, and it situates residents extremely close to the world-class dining, shopping, and cultural institutions at the heart of Palm Beach.”

The best part is you can experience this laidback yet sophisticated lifestyle for yourself. While many people have already secured their spot right on the ocean at 3550 South Ocean, some of these exquisite homes are still available.

And it’s all even better in person. Join us for a tour and experience firsthand what true Palm Beach luxury is all about at 3550 South Ocean.

Delicate Detail

Inside and out, 3550 South Ocean is a celebration of custom finishes. Organic materials, subtly textured surfaces, Fantini fixtures, and glass walls create effortlessly modern spaces in these elegant Palm Beach condos. In fact, there exists a special relationship among all these finishes, and that relationship is at the heart of the synergy that’s created within the living spaces at 3550 South Ocean.

The Palm Beach condos for sale at 3550 South Ocean are a masterful reinterpretation of the classic beachfront residences that have become synonymous with this part of the shore. The design reflects both the natural surroundings as well as the modern sophistication that is a hallmark of the South Palm Beach lifestyle. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors that open to private covered balconies offer a variety of unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway — a seamless marrying of indoor and out.  

The delicate variations in tone and texture that are observed on the beach itself feature prominently in these condos as envisioned by the distinguished interior design firm Champalimaud. They have bestowed their own brand of modern yet timeless elegance upon every condo, using the soft color palettes familiar to Palm Beach to establish clean, contemporary lines. The ample light from the glass-ensconced living spaces provides added sparkle to the chiseled limestone and white and gray travertine. Local coral stone puts you in direct contact with the natural environment of Palm Beach as does the easy warmth of white oak. And for those who desire a different mood, walnut is also available to add a dark but clean edge to your woodwork. No matter how you match up these elements, together, the pieces harmonize to achieve an aesthetically superior contemporary look and feel that still allows you to punctuate the space with your own personal style.

The chef-caliber, custom-designed Molteni kitchens by DDG and Champlimaud are the perfect example of how colors and the choice of materials work together to bring the South Palm Beach aesthetic to your home. Open and expansive with design inspired by the revelatory work of architect Carlo Scarpa, 3550 South Ocean kitchens offer Fantini faucets along with a custom statement island of solid stone. There is an unexpected, yet thoroughly organic and satisfying, visual detail in the two pieces of contrasting stone that intersect the island.

Nestled in the tranquil southern tip of Palm Beach, 3550 South Ocean’s luxury condos are a reflection of the opulence that defines the area and the casual yet glamorous way that its residents live. Clean, carefully curated natural elements working together with an eye toward the contemporary create a space that invites you to relax. And it’s all in perfect consonance with the shore beyond your windows. Come home to 3550 South Ocean and experience it for yourself.

Five Palm Beach Culinary Gems

When you think of Palm Beach, you probably think of sunshine, serene white-sand beaches, and, if you’ve been paying attention, exquisite restaurants. The region is known for its diverse and vibrant array of local eateries, and they sure aren’t slowing down. Fortunate residents of the Palm Beach condos at 3550 South Ocean Boulevard will find themselves nearby a number of world-class dining options. Here are five of our favorites.

Sant Ambroeus | 340 Royal Poinciana Way

The first Sant Ambroeus opened its doors in Milan back in 1936. In the subsequent eight decades, this dining mecca expanded to Madison Avenue before reaching Downtown NYC and then making its way even further south to Palm Beach. While it’s profoundly difficult to single out one pasta dish from the array of vibrant options, their Paccheri alla Burrata is as good as it gets. And if you’re in the mood for seafood, their branzino and their salmon are stellar. The interior is 60s-influenced with a distinct contemporary flair; the service is wonderful; their wine list is large and finely curated; and—it must be mentioned—they have gelato.

Cafe Boulud | 301 Australian Avenue

Daniel Boulud, former Bon Appétit Chef of the Year and James Beard Award winner (among a litany of other accolades), has restaurants in Singapore, London, Montreal, Toronto, Boston, D.C., New York and—fortunately for residents of 3550 South Ocean—Palm Beach. This acclaimed French-American eatery has a diverse and inventive, seafood-centric menu. We adore the squash risotto and the Parisian gnocchi, but every dish here is a unique culinary adventure. It’s a can’t-miss destination for a special evening.

Seafood Bar at The Breakers | 1 South County Road

You’re not going to believe this, but Seafood Bar has great seafood. Their oysters are incredible, and the lobster is heavenly—and the same goes for the grouper, scallops, and the truffle gorgonzola fries. And the atmosphere is lively yet tranquil. The large windows look over the water, and the bar counter is itself a luminescent aquarium. Go for the seafood; stay for the sea vibe.

Ta-boo | 221 Worth Avenue

Ta-boo is a Palm Beach institution if there ever was one. It opened its doors in 1941, later becoming known as a favorite stop of Frank Sinatra, John F. Kennedy, and Rod Stewart, among many other notable figures. It has a classic, old Palm Beach vibe; you can feel the history. And the food is great. Their brie and pear pizza is sweet and well-balanced; their poached salmon salad is refreshing and deep; and their ahi tuna burger is a must-try. Whether you’re stopping by for brunch, dinner, or just a few drinks, Ta-boo is well worth your time.

Table 26° | 1700 South Dixie Highway

Global comfort food: in their own words, that’s what Table 26° is bringing to the table. Nautical themes are a dime a dozen in Palm Beach, but this one works. There’s a level of sophistication and refinement to their approach—it’s chic without trying too hard to hit that mark. They have a wonderful happy hour and a substantial wine list. Their pork chop and their braised short ribs are local favorites; their grilled shrimp with mango has a delightful, airy tang; and they make a mean cocktail.

Now that you know the neighborhood, it’s time to explore 3550 South Ocean, and it’s all even better in person. Join us for a tour and experience firsthand what true Palm Beach luxury is all about at 3550 South Ocean.

A Look Inside

Follow along for a tour of these Palm Beach Florida condos and discover why you’ll want to call them home.

Inspired by the coastline itself, the contemporary sawtooth shape of 3550 South Ocean evokes the tides and waves. There is an ebb and flow that both soothes and brings you to quiet contemplation, while the building’s east-to-west orientation ensures maximum sunlight, as well as spectacular views and cooling breezes. Featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors that lead onto private covered balconies, many of the residences provide exceptional views of both the ocean and nearby Intracoastal waterway, blurring the line between inside and out. Light and airy with open floor plans, residences range from 2,600 to 3,600 square feet with five penthouses offering their own private rooftop decks. The project’s design firm, Champalimaud, has brought a timeless yet contemporary feel to the interiors; each luxuriously appointed with the finest materials to match the sophistication of the area.

 

Entering, soft colors form a palette for clean, sleek lines. Though modern, the colors are subtly softened by chiseled limestone, white and gray honed marble and white oak. Of immediate note is an open, chef-caliber Molteni kitchen, custom designed by DDG and Champalimaud. Each kitchen features a Fantini kitchen faucet and an island of solid stone. This motif is carried into the bathroom spaces where stone floors and Fantini fixtures are also found next to stone or travertine accented walls.

A home should bring you not just to where you love to be, but also to what you love to do. The amenities at 3550 South Ocean were carefully conceived to match with the recreational interests of its residents. That’s why you’ll find on-site storage for your kayak or paddleboard: a convenience that lets you enjoy the surf on your own schedule — not to mention, of course, the private beach that makes it all the easier. Residents also enjoy access to one of the country’s most highly-rated spas at the nearby Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, ranked the No. 1 “Top Resort” in Florida, as part of Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards. A fitness studio with natural light, featuring Technogym and Peloton equipment, and bike racks ensure the pursuit of fitness, health, and well-being, while the beachfront swimming pool and sun terrace bring relaxation to your doorstep.

Palm Beach’s Worth Avenue, Past and Present

Since the early 1900s, when Gilded Age barons began building beautiful homes along the water, Palm Beach has been a destination for the upper classes. In the 1930s, upscale merchants began moving to Worth Avenue, a short East/West road that bisects the narrow island. Today, as residents get ready to move into their new Palm Beach condos at 3550 South Ocean, Worth Avenue is a hotbed for art, fashion, and, of course, stylish parties that make the society pages. Come with us on this brief tour of Worth Avenue, past and present.

A Fashionable Past

Palm Beach boomed during the 1910s and 20s, with iconic clubs like the Everglades Club on Worth Avenue establishing the area as the destination for the era’s socialites. Worth Avenue’s identity as a fashion hub dates back to this period, when representatives from shops, including Bonwit Teller and Saks, would populate weekly fashion luncheons at the Everglades Club with the latest styles from Paris and New York. In keeping with the opulence of the Everglades Club, merchants on Worth Avenue incorporated the Worth Avenue Association in 1961 to preserve the avenue’s sophisticated ambiance.

A Stylish and Tasty Present

From international brands to homegrown boutiques, Worth Avenue is a one-stop destination for any resident of 3550 South Ocean. The staff at Shari’s Place will help guests create their personal fashion statement, while customers at Marley’s Palm Beach Collection will find colorful clothing in the beautiful setting of Worth Avenue’s Via Amore courtyard. Shoe shoppers will fall in love with the wealth of options from iconic brands, including Jimmy Choo and Rangoni Firenze Shoes, while residents in search of new jewelry will love boutiques like Jennifer Miller Jewelry and specialty shops like Jewelmer, the world’s leading purveyor of South Sea pearl jewelry since 1979.

After a spree along Worth Avenue, shoppers have their choice of fine-dining options, from high-end cocktails and French-American cuisine at Cafe Boulud Palm Beach to Breeze Ocean Kitchen’s alfresco offerings right on the sandy beach. Those seeking an authentic Italian dining experience near Worth Avenue should search out Renato’s, which opened in 1987 and has been serving classic fare ever since, as well as more modern dishes like black squid ink fettuccine with salmon and saffron cream sauce. After dinner, it’s just a short drive south from Worth Avenue to 3550 South Ocean, where residents can watch the sunset from their private balconies.

We sat down with Arielle Feinberg, the property manager at 3550 South Ocean, for a conversation about what drew her to this new collection of Palm Beach condos. Feinberg has more than 15 years of experience in the high-end hospitality industry and has held director-level positions in spa and fitness facilities around the country, including, most recently, as the Spa & Leisure Director at the nearby Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.

“There’s so much to do in the neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods,” said Feinberg about Palm Beach. “Here, you are so close to the amazing restaurants.”

Feinberg, who has called Palm Beach home since 2017, was excited as soon as she heard about the plans for the 3550 South Ocean development. “I loved the location and trend of the project, including the privacy of it,” said Feinberg. “Each unit having an ocean view makes it so special. People build these homes, and so often the view may not be included the way 3550 South Ocean has made it a focal point.”

She also praised the suite of high-end spa and fitness amenities at 3550 South Ocean. “The top-of-the-line equipment for the gym and pool is amazing,” said Feinberg. “Having it all in one place is crucial.”

Feinberg also highlighted the availability of wellness and fitness classes, which were taken into consideration during the design phase of the process. As property manager, she intends to host wellness events to foster a sense of community. But Feinberg understands that exercise and wellness are not the only elements of the engaged lifestyle that is available in a place like 3550 South Ocean; that’s why, in addition to classes and group workouts, she is also considering events like “cuisine pairings, fashion shows, entertainment, anything that can fit around the pool.”

One of the benefits of living on Palm Beach is the proximity to world-class hotels and spas. In fact, 3550 South Ocean has a partnership Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, which will give residents access to the spa as well as special offers on hotel rooms for their guests.

Among the many fine restaurants in Palm Beach, Feinberg recommends nearby eateries Temple Orange, Florie’s, and Buccan Palm Beach. Palm Beach proper, which is a short drive from 3550 South Ocean, “has so many amazing options,” said Feinberg. “Everyday necessities are also very accessible, which is important.”

Feinberg is just one member of the stellar team that makes 3550 South Ocean the best address in Palm Beach, working to create a bespoke wellness and hospitality experience for every resident.

Now that 3550 South Ocean is approaching completion, the Palm Beach real estate world is turning its attention inward—to the building’s interiors, that is. The interior design for these Palm Beach condos is being handled by Champalimaud Design, one of the nation’s leading interior firms. Champalimaud is known for hotel and residential design, and the firm is bringing its definitive artistic philosophy to the sunny Palm Beach shores through this collection of luxury condos.

Alexandra Champalimaud founded her design firm in Montreal over 30 years ago and has been working tirelessly to push the boundaries of interior design ever since. Champalimaud Design starts with the history of a building or location and uses contemporary design principles to make modern spaces that are grounded in the past.

Now based in New York, Champalimaud Design has garnered dozens of awards for its innovations in hotel and residential projects around the world. Of particular note are Hotel Bel-Air, where Champalimaud complemented the property’s glamorous past with a soft color palette and handcrafted leather furniture to achieve the perfect Old Hollywood getaway, and the New York Palace, where the firm updated the Gilded Age treasure with spaces that made the lobby as functional as it is opulent. Champalimaud Design won acclaim from the International Hotel & Property Awards for Hotel Bel-Air and snagged the Vision Design Awards Grand Prize for the New York Palace.

When working on renovations, Champalimaud Design is dedicated to honoring a building’s unique history, but when designing for new construction projects like the Palm Beach, Florida, condos at 3550 South Ocean, these design experts have room to cultivate a fresh take on a location. As with all their projects, Champalimaud Design turned to the local architectural history for context while taking into consideration the specifics of the site. For these beachfront homes, Champalimaud found inspiration in the laid-back and timeless Palm Beach aesthetic, which emphasizes outdoor space and a soft color palette.

The result is a collection of breezy, light-flooded homes clad in warm hardwoods and cool marble. Trellis-like coverings over the private terraces find reflections in molded walls within and emphasize the sense of flow from one area to the next. Champalimaud chose high-end Fantini fixtures and Miele appliances for the kitchens and baths to match the polished marbles counters and Moletini-designed open chef’s kitchens with oversized islands that foster socializing as much as cooking.

The interior design at 3550 South Ocean combines the sunbaked Floridian aesthetic we all know and a nuanced appreciation of the luxury lifestyle to create one-of-a-kind living spaces that are pure Champalimaud.

The Ultimate Amenity

Life on the shore speaks to the needs of both mind and body. The Palm Beach condos at 3550 South Ocean provide an amazing array of amenities with this idea at the fore. Private beach access, on-site storage for residents’ kayaks and paddleboards, a beachfront swimming pool and sun terrace, a naturally lit fitness studio, bike racks, and a pet park are just a few of the perks for those with an active lifestyle. But what truly sets 3550 South Ocean apart from other Palm Beach condominiums is its access to one of the country’s highest rated spas: Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.

Residents of 3550 South Ocean will enjoy exclusive benefits at Eau Palm Beach, which is just a short walk away. One of only two Forbes Five-Star rated properties in Palm Beach (with only eight in the entire state), Eau Palm Beach was also ranked the number one “Top Resort” in Florida, as part of Condé Nast Traveler’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, and it’s truly a playground for those
calling the Gold Coast home. The resort sits upon its own private beach and seven acres of oceanfront replete with tropical gardens. An oasis within an oasis, the spa asks that you “prepare to be spoiled rotten” within its “joyful 42,000 square feet of playful relaxation, devoted to you and everything you love most.” Indulge, devote yourself to being pampered, or find true relaxation within these confines—it’s all at your fingertips as a resident at 3550 South Ocean.

Treatments here are celebrated with champagne, Ibiza beats, and their signature cupcakes. A full menu of skin care awaits, as well as facial options to satisfy all needs and wants. Hot oil or hot stones? Deep tissue or warm body butter and silk massage? Choose one or try them all; it matters not, for you live here now. Couples options and prenatal offerings round out packages to suit everyone. And when you’re done, take a turn at the salon to refresh your style, brighten your nails, or have your makeup done for that special day, event, or evening out. AND men will also rejoice at the full menu of offerings—just for them. Straight razor shaves, golf and spa packages, and even a brew and buff mani and pedi options are “on tap.” Don’t forget to take a stretch with one of their fitness classes—before or after your appointment.

While the spa is the elite luxury experience at Eau Palm Beach, the grounds and various spaces bring an equally satisfying bit of solitude and peace that’s within easy reach of your condo. The Self-Centered Garden boasts draped cabanas within a lush garden. You can also lounge (or play) in the swinging chairs or take a splash in the pool. The spa recommends that you bring your own champagne and make it a day. For even greater privacy, enjoy the Garden Villas before your treatment. It features a luxurious boudoir all your own, where you’ll have the opportunity to “bathe alfresco in a giant tub or shower beneath
brilliant blue skies” or simply relax in your robe, bathed in the warmth of the Florida sun. The choice is yours. However you decide to experience Eau Palm Beach, you’ll quickly realize that the amenities here perfectly complement those at 3550 South Ocean, especially when it comes to satisfying your own passion for wellness. Substantially awarded and internationally recognized, Eau Palm Beach offers an exquisite experience that now belongs to you.

A Perfect Saturday

From sunrise to sundown, the Palm Beach condos at 3550 South Ocean offer an ideal location to
live the Palm Beach lifestyle. For those who regularly venture out beyond the break to enjoy the
surf, paddleboard and kayak storage is provided. And for deep indulgence, the Eau Palm Beach
Resort & Spa, a Forbes five-star property, is a short stroll down the shore. When considering
Palm Beach luxury condos for sale, there’s no place quite like 3550 South Ocean.

At the start of each Saturday, you may be tempted to craft a premier weekend breakfast,
cooking in an expansive chef-caliber Molteni kitchen designed by DDG and Champalimaud.
Alternatively, for a leisurely and casual breakfast out, head to John G’s, a local fixture since 1973
where you can order an omelet to pair with your coffee and morning paper.

While golf may have been invented in the rainy Scottish Highlands, it has been perfected in the
sunshine of Palm Beach County. Boasting more than 160 courses, host to a number of
tournaments, and home to some of the best players in the world, naturally the courses here are
among the finest and most picturesque. PGA National is a short drive away and features 5
absolutely incredible golf courses, as well as elite practice facilities. If you’re pressed for time, or
just want to devote some time to shoring up your short game, book a round at Golf on the
Ocean at Palm Beach’s Par 3 course, which is practically in your backyard.

As Florida’s culture capital, Palm Beach is home to a thriving gallery scene. Collectors and those
who appreciate fine art will find a vast array of spaces displaying painting, sculpture, and
photography. Spend an afternoon walking the boulevards looking for your next acquisition. If
you’re not in the market for a new piece, you can head to the Norton Museum of Art, which will
be reopening in early February 2019 after an ambitious expansion. With more than 7,600 works
from European, American, Chinese, Contemporary and Photography curatorial departments, it’s
no surprise that the Norton has acquired several masterworks. The museum also welcomes an
impressive diversity of established and emerging artists and showcases them with exhibitions
such as the Recognition of Art by Women (RAW) series and the biennial Rudin Prize for
Emerging Photographers.

Finish your day at the Eau Palm Beach Spa. Indulge in a full selection of traditional treatments or
massages, treat yourself to a mani and pedi, or book time at the salon. When your spa therapy is
complete, stay for dinner at the resort and book a table at Angle. A modern American
experience, Angle celebrates “farm-to-fork cuisine,” including line-caught fish and other local
South Florida specialties. The dayboat sea scallops are divine. And we never say “no” to starting
with the caviar.

For the perfect Saturday, from dawn to dusk, 3550 South Ocean is your base for all the best that
Palm Beach has to offer. Contact us to reserve your hard hat tour or visit our sales gallery for
more information!
