What's a luxury waterfront condo in North Palm look like? Take a peek

NORTH PALM BEACH Two new, gleaming high-rise towers of luxury condos could be the start of the revitalization of the U.S. 1 corridor in North Palm Beach.

Sales are strong for both the condos and the villas at The Water Club, Kolter Urban senior vice president Ed Jahn said. Of the 162 finished units, there have been 134 closings, he said. The condos start around $900,000 and go up to around $3 million.

The gated 22-story towers have views overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and Singer Island, including the undeveloped north end. Two, sandy fire pits are along the water, just beyond a lap pool, recreational pool and hot tub. A community room with an electronic fireplace, pool table and TVs opens up to a covered, outdoor seating area. The Water Club has more than 400 feet of waterfront, Jahn said.

'This project is so close to everything - PGA, the restaurants, the mall," Jahn said. "But you're secluded."

The seven-acre property is just south of PGA Boulevard, across from the Crystal Tree Plaza and next to Old Port Cove. It's up the street from the North Palm Beach Country Club, where a new, $15 million clubhouse is planned. The Water Club is just the start of the redevelopment, Jahn said.

The condos and villas are popular as second properties for people from the Northeast and those who are leaving behind their golf memberships and big yards in other communities, Jahn said. The 20 two- and three-story townhouses are most similar to the homes that some Water Club residents were used to in BallenIsles, Admiral's Cove and Old Palm, he said. And they're sold out.

"It just gives them more flexibility, and they're in a brand new unit," he said.

The first phase has four floor plans, which top out at more than 3,600 square feet, Jahn said. Terraces offer views of the sunset or the sunrise. Residents can buy one of a limited number of remaining boat slips, or they can rent a day dock if a friend comes to visit or they rent a boat for the day, he said. There's also a small craft and kayak launch.

All units are pet-friendly and come with a washer, dryer and two covered parking spaces. There's a dog park on the north end.

Kolter Urban is planning to build 30 larger condos in a third not-yet-built tower. They're evaluating the floor plans after getting feedback that prospective buyers wanted condos larger than those in the other two towers but not as large as originally designed, Jahn said. Kolter plans to relaunch sales at the end of this year or beginning of next for the tower that should take about two years to build, he said.
