Move-in day coming at Boca Raton condominium project

Martin-Harris Construction is nearing first-phase completion of the $400 million Boca Raton luxury midrise condominiums at Las Vegas Boulevard and Serene Avenue.

Residents are expected to move in by June.

The first phase consists of 378 units in two buildings and a 10,000-square-foot clubhouse with a private screening room, fitness center, meeting space and concierge service.

Upon completion, Boca Raton will have 756 homes in four seven-story buildings and two levels of underground parking.

Martin-Harris is laying tile and carpet, hanging doors and installing countertops, cabinets and appliances. Curb and gutter work is also being done.

The next steps entail fire safety testing, additional landscaping and finishing work of the condos and clubhouse. The pool and hot tub are under construction.

“Boca Raton is taking shape and actually feels like a destination you’d find in Florida with the exterior palm tree details, crown molding, landscaping, unique window shapes in every room and two-tone colors of the exterior,” said Mack McKnight, senior vice president of development for Palm Beach Resort Condominiums.

Condo prices range from the mid-$300,000s to more than $1 million. The first units were originally scheduled for delivery last December.
