Big Brand Builders Iron the Wrinkles out of Old-School Boca Raton
NEW YORK POST, by Beth Landman
This New York Post article highlights Boca Raton’s transition from sleepy retirement community into a younger, more vibrant area, with a median age of 48.
The Via Mizner properties were featured several times:
The Mandarin Oriental will open the city’s first new ultra-luxe hotel in almost 100 years and will bring 85 new luxury condos.
The Mandarin Oriental will open later this year with a 154-room hotel and 85 condos, ranging from $4M to $28M. It will have an athletic club, a spa, a rooftop restaurant, a private club, and a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course. The ground floor has 65,000 square feet of luxury retail. “If you wanted luxury shopping before, you went to Palm Beach or Bal Harbour,” said David Warne, COO of Penn-Florida, the Mandarin’s developer. “Now, with so many people moving here, it is particularly timely.”
