Construction Update: 3550 South Ocean Breaks Ground, the First Residential Project on Palm Beach Island in Over a Decade

DDG announced earlier this month that construction is officially underway at 3550 South Ocean in Palm Beach after hosting an exclusive groundbreaking ceremony attended by South Palm Beach Mayor Bonnie Fischer, Douglas Elliman Chairman Howard M. Lorber and DDG CEO and Chairman Joe McMillan. The project is a rare new addition to the Palm Beach shoreline. The groundbreaking follows the launch of sales earlier this year; the project is already over 20% sold.

“3550 South Ocean signifies DDG’s foray into Florida and we couldn’t be more excited to see this project come to life as construction gets underway. Between the location, ocean views and selection of amenities, 3550 South Ocean will introduce a new luxury lifestyle to the Palm Beach condominium market,” said Joe McMillan.

“There has been a strong interest in 3550 South Ocean since sales have launched,” said Howard Lorber, whose Douglas Elliman Development Marketing team is the exclusive marketing and sales agent for 3550 South Ocean. “This project has addressed the buyers’ needs for ground-up new luxury homes on the beach with an elevated level of design that this area of Palm Beach has not seen before.”

The 7-story building was designed by local starchitect Kobi Karp in collaboration with Garcia Stromberg of Palm Beach and interiors by Champalimaud of New York. 3550 South Ocean will feature 30 units which come in 2 and 3 bedroom layouts, range in size from 2,700 SF to 3,000 SF and start at $1.875 million. Units will feature private elevator access with private entry foyers, amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway, floor-to-ceiling glass, expansive chef’s kitchens, and will be delivered move-in ready. A collection of five penthouses will also feature rooftop terraces.

Amenities include private beach access, a beachfront saltwater swimming pool and sun terrace, a fitness studio with east facing natural light, on-site surfboard and stand-up paddleboard storage, private gated access and private parking. Additionally, DDG has a partnership with The Wright Fit, to provide custom, on-demand lifestyle services including in-residence massages, indoor and outdoor private training, and yoga and youth fitness for residents. Ownership perks also include an exclusive relationship with on-demand charter service, Star Jets International which provides residents with custom-tailored concierge jet services, with the resident experience inclusive of door-to-door car transfers, itinerary customization, jet selection, onboard catering and more. Construction is currently under way with KAST as the general contractor. Delivery is expected in late 2018.
