DDG has announced the first new beachfront residential development on Palm Beach Island in over a decade, 3550 South Ocean, has officially topped out at 7 stories after breaking ground last summer. 3550 South Ocean is rare new addition to the coveted Palm Beach shoreline that introduces a new standard of luxury condo living in Palm Beach. Demand for the condominium’s oceanfront two-bedroom, three-bedroom and penthouse homes has remained strong during construction. Current availability starts at $2.3 million.


“3550 South Ocean is a significant development for DDG as it represents a new phase of the company’s expansion as well as our first project in Florida,” said Joe McMillan, CEO and Chairman of DDG. “Watching the building go vertical and achieve its full height has been incredibly exciting and we look forward to seeing its elegant and contemporary design come to life as we approach completion next year.”


“Buyer response to 3550 South Ocean has been quite positive since the building came onto the market last year,” said Howard M. Lorber, Chairman of Douglas Elliman Realty LLC, whose Development Marketing team is the exclusive marketing and sales agent for 3550 South Ocean. “It offers the rare opportunity of purchasing a newly built home directly on the beach, as well as situates residents extremely close to the world-class dining, shopping and leading cultural institutions Palm Beach is known and sought after for.”
