HOT FUN IN THE CITY

If you crave the energy of city life but also need to recharge and feel pampered at home, CityPlace South Tower in downtown West Palm Beach delivers both. This 420-unit, 20-story condominium development is a luxury oasis right in the heart of everything.

    A MODERN TWIST ON A BYGONE ERA

In the 1940s, Miami Beach’s oceanfront Caribbean Hotel was a hot spot for the rich and famous. Now the art deco landmark is being transformed into a high-end condominium with the 21st century touch of interior designer and creative consultant Christopher Ciccone (yes, Madonna’s brother). The Caribbean’s existing six-story north tower will offer 35 ultra-luxe apartments, seven with rooftop terraces. A 19-story south tower will offer 68 equally lavish homes, including four penthouses.

Inside, Ciccone is splendidly melding deco and modern. Living and dining rooms have 9ft ceilings. Kitchens have Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, stone countertops and washer/dryers. 1 to 4BRs range from 700 to 3900 sf, and have floor-to-ceiling impact-glass windows. Other amenities: oceanfront infinity-edge pool and spa, deluxe fitness center, wine vault, 24-hour valet parking. Pre-wired for cable and high-speed internet; a wireless touchpad in your home provides 24/7 concierge service. Sales office open. Occupancy fall 2007. From $1 million.

“It’s mind-boggling the amount of building that is going on in Florida,” says Bill Kirk, vice-president and managing broker for Sotheby’s International Realty in Palm Beach. “In spite of what we’re hearing about markets softening, we don’t perceive that here. The high end of the market is very strong, and that bodes well for the rest of the market.”
