In a city of celebrity, glitz, and glamour, an exceptional newcomer is creating quite a buzz. Dubbed simply “3550,” as in 3550 S. Ocean Blvd, this Palm Beach stunner is a 30-unit, gleaming glass masterpiece. SecondShelters.com recently caught up to premier Palm Beach real estate broker John Abdelsayed of Trends Realty. “This is the first new tower in Palm Beach in more than a decade. (The) 3550 has everything you expect from Palm Beach.”
The “sawtooth” (staggered) elevation and footprint of 3550 allows the best and brightest views from the residences — this is an exceptional use of the land. Magnificent views of the Gold Coast are prominent in all units, as the stunning new tower sits in a sweet spot between Atlantic beachfront and the Intracoastal Waterway. Complemented with floor-to-ceiling windows and generous private balconies, 3550 brings the sea breezes and sun inside.
“Palm Beach is the most exclusive address, and 3550 is the most exlcusive new property in Palm Beach,” Abdelsayed explains. “Only 30 buyers will be able own a part of 3550. It’s historic. Palm Beach is very traditional, and we see properties that are gorgeous, but not in this style.”
Living areas of 3550 appear infinite, as the physical space extends beyond windows and walls. Kitchens and baths are well-appointed and feature chic textured and contrasting finishes, sleek fixtures, and function. The chef-inspired preparation areas are inviting. The bathrooms are spa-like, and continue the soothing fresh neutral palette. Each room is punctuated with glamorous and tasteful lighting that accents the ample natural light. The 3550 has an east-to-west orientation — so important for a beach condo.
Many newer coastal residential towers trend towards crisp and contemporary. The 3550, although thoroughly modern, isn’t cold. What sets the 3550 apart is the elegant use of natural materials throughout. Designed by Champalimaud, these native elements relax, yet refine the interiors. Every unit is finished in chiseled limestone, white and grey travertine, and driftwood oak. This tower is the very definition of the casual glamour of Palm Beach.
Five of the 30 units are penthouses and have gorgeous rooftop patio balconies. The 3550 has five distinctively functional floor plans ranging from two to three bedrooms, varying between 2,700 to 3,400 square feet. Prices start at $1.875 million. Construction is scheduled to finish in Fall 2018.
Amenities include a sunny, state-of-the-art fitness center, saltwater swimming pool, and private beach access. In addition, residents may access nearby Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa. The 3550 has gated secure access, as well as private parking, and on-site storage.
