While many developers are opting for a “bigger is better” mentality in South Florida especially when it comes to waterfront condos (think: towering highrises dotting every open lot spanning the Tri-County area), BGI Companies—along with co-developer Blue Road Group—are slowing things down with a brand-new residential project: Alba Palm Beach.
The teams behind the new development in Northwood say Alba will “redefine waterfront living in The Palm Beaches,” thanks to 55 intimately sized, graciously appointed residences plus a variety of amenities on the sixth floor to boot. These will include virtual conference spaces, a theater, and multi-sport simulator rooms to name a few.
“Alba Palm Beach is introducing a limited-edition waterfront lifestyle that is hard to come by in today’s market, particularly in South Florida,” says Kenneth Baboun, developer of Alba Palm Beach. “We are creating a luxury destination where the best of high-caliber products, high-quality workmanship, and elevated amenities meet.”
Baboun assures future residents that Alba’s location on the west bank of the Intracoastal will offer residents access to the best of the best—enjoy exploring local beaches, shopping on Worth Avenue, boating on the Atlantic, checking out Palm Beach’s arts and culture scene, and more.
Architect Spina O’Rourke helms Alba Palm Beach’s interior design while Schmidt Nichols is behind the landscape/hardscape work to transform Alba’s 22-story tower, plus four two- and three-story townhomes. Set on 1.71 acres with direct Intracoastal frontage, Alba's waterfront condos are guaranteed to effortlessly evoke desirable coastal living vibes.
As of December, the development team says they received “a strong response” in pre-sales with more than 30 percent of the building reserved. View Alba Palm Beach's Waterfront Condos for Sale here.
