These twenty-one new oceanfront condominium residences will deliver uncompromising luxury in a gated sanctuary with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal waterway and neighboring parks.

As featured in The South Florida Business Journal – November through January have been the best sales months at Turnberry Ocean Residences in Sunny Isles Beach, primarily because of buyers from the winter-stricken Northeast, said Jim Cohen, president of Fontainebleau Development. The larger units in the recently completed tower are selling faster than the smaller ones, and they’ve even combined some units to create duplex-style condos.

A similar trend occurred at Fontainebleau Development’s SeaGlass Jupiter Island project, where the larger condos were the first to be presold, Cohen said.

“In our SeaGlass project, in two recent sales, the clients came out of 20,000- or 30,000-square-foot homes,” he said. “They still demand a large space. They are just tired of upkeep for the home. They are downsizing, but still buying 6,000 to 8,000 square feet.”

Fontainebleau Development is strongly considering more luxury projects in South Florida, as the demand for larger units will continue and few projects are under construction now, Cohen added.

As featured in South Florida Agent Magazine – The luxury condo boom is spreading beyond Miami. A new community on Jupiter Island, SeaGlass, Jupiter Island, has also seen an increase in sales.

Jim Cohen, president of residential for Fontainebleau Development, said, “SeaGlass, Jupiter Island is one of the first buildings to be constructed in the area in decades, and once completed, it will become one of the most coveted addresses in the area. The unique location of the site offers direct ocean and intracoastal views along with views of protected parks to the north and south with no neighboring buildings close by. When we were presented the opportunity to develop on this location there was no hesitation as a site like this is truly rare.”

“There is absolutely a demand for larger condominium residences today. Fortunately, we as developers have always specialized in the ultra-luxury market where the buyers are end-users who prefer larger-sized residences.”

In addition, Cohen said, “SeaGlass was designed from the inside out. First, we thoughtfully considered the usability of the residence floor plans, and then followed with an architecturally stunning building design. The aesthetic represents a casual elegance that relates to the building’s unique beachfront location. The lobby was designed to feel modern with a contemporary color palette inspired by the surrounding sea, beach and dunes, including the cast-glass chandelier that represents forms of sea glass.”

As featured in The Palm Beach Post – It’s not just southern Palm Beach County that is seeing construction of small upscale condos, however.

In Tequesta, at the county’s northern edge, developers just broke ground on SeaGlass Jupiter Island, a boutique luxury condominium featuring only 21 units.

Since sales launched in May, developers have logged an undisclosed number of pre-construction sales, ranging in price from $5.9 million to more than $10 million. Each unit features ocean-to-Intracoastal views, as well as private terraces with summer kitchens.

The project, being developed by Fontainebleau Development and Perko Development Partners, is expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.

As Featured in Mansion Global – It may be easier to get to Jupiter Island, a nearly 10-mile long barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway off Florida’s East Coast, but you won’t see much. Many residences are owned by celebrities, professional athletes and business leaders who live in mansions hidden behind hedges and sea grape trees.

However, a 10-story condominium— SeaGlass Jupiter Island— will provide its owners with a view and similar seclusion. Jim Cohen, Fontainebleau Development president of residential, says the project will be “on a site you can’t duplicate, surrounded by public parks and less than a mile from the Blowing Rocks Preserve.” Each of the 21 units will have unobstructed views of both the ocean and the waterway, Cohen says, and, like those mansions, heavy landscaping will hide the building’s gated entrance from the road.

Building sites are so rare that SeaGlass will be the first new condominium project on the island in two decades. The site was two properties, Cohen says, one owned by an affiliate of the Catholic Church and the other by 10 condominium owners. When the Vatican gave permission to sell the church’s parcel last year, the condo owners also agreed. “It took our team about a minute to decide to buy it,” Cohen laughs.

Construction will begin this fall and should be completed by fall of 2022. Prices range from $5.9 million for three-bedroom units to over $10 million for the building’s two penthouses. Interiors will feature top-end appliances and master suites with his-and-hers bathrooms and closets. All units will have oversized balconies with summer kitchens.

And celebrities should feel right at home: You can park in your private climate-controlled garage and take an elevator that opens right into your own apartment. “You can be as invisible as you want,” Cohen says.

More social residents will find a wealth of amenities, including a grand lobby with 24-hour staff, a club room with a catering kitchen, a dog walk with a bathing station, and a social terrace with barbecues and a fire pit. An infinity-edged heated pool with a sun shelf will face the ocean and 170 feet of private beach. Across the road on the waterway side will be a private dock for boats to pick up or drop off passengers.

“We expect to attract a very active community,” Cohen explains, “and a major focus is on our health and fitness center. The nearby nature preserve offers bike and running trails, kayaking, fishing and boating.”

One “delighted” buyer from the New York Metro area says, “After exploring other vacation developments in Florida and California, we were drawn to the uniqueness of Jupiter Island and the amenities and new construction of SeaGlass, but I wanted to see the site first. I was influenced by walking on the beach and experiencing the privacy and tranquility of the location as well as the ocean and Intracoastal views.”

As featured in The Real Deal – Jeffrey Soffer’s Fontainebleau Development and its partner are launching sales of a new oceanfront luxury condo development in Jupiter Island, marking one of the first such projects on the ritzy island.

SeaGlass Jupiter Island, a 10-story, 21-unit project at 1500 Beach Road, is being developed by Fontainebleau Development and Perko Development Partners. It is on 170 linear feet of Atlantic Ocean beach and Intracoastal frontage and is near Blowing Rocks Preserve.

The developers want to attract wealthy homeowners from the area’s high-end single-family neighborhoods as well as buyers from the Northeast and from other parts of South Florida, according to Jim Cohen, Fontainebleau Development’s president of Residential. Cohen said Fontainebleau Development will handle sales in-house.

“I’ve seen inquiries come up from Miami-Dade County, and there’s a trend of people wanting to move north,” Cohen said.

Jupiter Island is a secluded waterfront town and home to some of the wealthiest residents in southern Florida. In 2017, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Céline Dion sold a 5.7-acre oceanfront estate on Jupiter Island for $28 million, after listing it for $72.5 million.

Seaglass is designed by Swedroe Architecture, which built the Jupiter Yacht Club and three beachfront Jupiter Island towers that are often referred to as the “Three Cs:” The Cliveden, The Claridge and The Carlyle. New York-based Champalimaud Design is the interior designer.

Among other recent projects, Swedroe also designed Soffer’s Turnberry Ocean Club in Sunny Isles Beach, which is nearing completion; and the Shoreline, twin towers at Solé Mia in North Miami. Partner Joseph Swedroe said that 30 years ago the firm introduced private entry elevators, which have become commonplace in luxury condo towers.

SeaGlass’ prices range from $5.9 million to over $10 million, according to a press release. It will have three- and four-bedroom units, ranging in size from 3,781 square feet to 5,323 square feet.

The project will feature private terraces with summer kitchens and private air-conditioned, two-car garages for every residence. Amenities will include an infinity-edge heated swimming pool with a heated relaxation spa, a poolside sandy beach, a beachside summer kitchen and outdoor viewing terrace. Seaglass also will feature weight training and cardio equipment, and a yoga and meditation lawn.

SeaGlass is expected to break ground in the fall, and construction will take about 18 months, Cohen said.

Soffer launched Fontainebleau Development in March 2019 after splitting up interests in Turnberry Associates with his sister, Jackie Soffer.
