The latest place for luxury is former sleepy seaside village Pompano Beach, and Sabbia Beach is leading the new wave.
By Peter B. Laird
What happens when one of Canada’s largest and most successful homebuilders decides to develop in South Florida? You get Sabbia Beach, Pompano Beach’s first ultra-luxury, “toes-in-the-sand” residential development in a decade.
Danny and Joseph Salvatore, principals in Ontario-based Fernbrook Homes — whose luxury condominiums have transformed Toronto’s waterfront skyline — and Grupo Fernandez — Venezuela’s largest construction company — are the developers of Sabbia Beach. Situated on the widest stretch of pristine Pompano Beach, the project promises to usher in a new era of luxury for the once-sleepy seaside village nestled midway between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton.
Indeed, Pompano Beach, today, is awash in a wave of municipal-development projects that include a beautifully restored beach, a new streetscape along Atlantic Avenue, a creative-arts district and cultural center, and the new Fishing Village — six oceanfront acres of upscale shops and restaurants with a promenade linking the Intracoastal Waterway to the beach and a newly renovated Fishing Pier.
On land or on the water, life at Sabbia Beach offers endless opportunities to take advantage of the best South Florida has to offer.
“There’s no question that Pompano Beach is fast becoming a vibrant, sophisticated, multidimensional destination,” says Danny Salvatore. “And now it is getting a luxury address worthy of the city’s location along one of South Florida’s most beautiful stretches of oceanfront.”
ON THE OCEAN, OF THE OCEAN
Sabbia Beach’s 19-story tower at 730 North Ocean Boulevard will be home to just 68 oceanfront residences with sweeping views of the city, Intracoastal Waterway, and the Atlantic. The beauty of the ocean inspires every aspect of Sabbia Beach, from its distinctive architectural design by the renowned Miami firm Arquitectonica, to Interiors by Steven G., and the site-sensitive landscape design by ArquitectonicaGEO.
“Sabbia Beach is one of the last places in South Florida to find new construction directly on the sand, offering sophisticated oceanfront living,” says Salvatore. “It’s a place where surf, sun, sand, and style all come together in perfect harmony.”
Its timeless design eschews glitz and reflects the organic colors and forms of its surroundings. The unique pattern and earth tones of its pedestal provide a natural backdrop to the sand, beach grass, shrubs, and trees, while the tower’s light blue-green glass mirrors the colors of the sea. The building’s most distinctive feature — its gently undulating façade and balconies — echoes the ripples of the ocean.
SPACIOUS AND GRACIOUS
Every aspect of Sabbia Beach is designed to embrace and enhance the oceanfront lifestyle. The luxury tower’s “backyard” is 200 linear feet of pristine, white-sand beach that stretches 300 feet from shore to door — half of which is a private, palm-shaded beach for the exclusive use of residents. Overlooking the beach is an exotic oceanfront pool deck with ultra-contemporary heated pool and Jacuzzi.
A stunning porte-cochère entrance offers a preview of the luxuries that await residents inside. Indoor amenities include a boutique lobby with state-of-the-art security and concierge, world-class fitness center with ocean views, a spa with treatment rooms and his-and-her steam rooms and saunas, and a 3,600-square-foot multipurpose social room with full bar, catering kitchen, seating, game and poker tables, large-screen TV, and other comforts. Residents also enjoy private covered parking and 24-hour valet parking.
Sabbia Beach offers a variety of spacious floor plans with two-, three-, and four-bedroom units — priced from the low $900,000s to $3.5 million — and penthouses, including a pair of two-story residences on the tower’s top floors — starting at $5 million. Floor-to-ceiling glass and generous balconies with glass railings afford panoramic views of the ocean, city, and Intracoastal Waterway, and high end features and finishes complete the luxe offerings.
Each well-appointed residence features direct elevator access with private or semi-private foyer, double-door entry opening to expansive views, and a large master suite with walk-in closet and luxurious bathroom with stone countertops, bidet, and free-standing soaking tub.
Gourmet-chef’s island kitchens at Sabbia Beach appeal to anyone who enjoys entertaining. “In addition to stone countertops and custom-designed Italian cabinetry, all kitchens feature Miele induction-cooktop ranges, wine coolers and concealed dishwashers, and Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezers,” says Salvatore.
Among the very best residences available at Sabbia Beach is the 3,005-square-foot Barona. This three-bedroom, four-bath residence with media room/den boasts spectacular ocean views to the north and east, direct elevator access with private foyer, an expansive 44-foot by 14-foot great room, and a generous wrap-around balcony.
For those who especially enjoy al fresco living, the tower’s fourth floor is home to the exclusive Terrazzas at Sabbia Beach — a select offering of just four corner residences priced from $1.3 million. These exclusive two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences boast expansive, wrap-around terraces ranging from 1,762 to 3,940 square feet — larger than most South Florida condominiums — with summer kitchen, spa, shower, and raised deck — offering breathtaking views of ocean and city skyline.
Sabbia Beach, at 730 North Ocean Boulevard, Pompano Beach, is expected to be completed in late 2017.
