Highland Beach, FL Real Estate News

The market I serve is the luxury waterfront (homes and condos) along the coastline of south Florida from Palm Beach to South Beach. Highland Beach is an attractive beach town that offers many options in Luxury condos, Intracoastal Estates, and Oceanfront Estates. What we have seen happen overall in the past few years is a gradual shift from a buyer's market on paper to a seller's market in real life.

Not so fast. The trained eye of the pro going through the list quickly realizes that most of these properties are "dogs". No view, older units/homes needing extensive remodeling, no pets allowed...

  The long drawn out plan to put a public park & beach in Highland Beach is becoming longer.  In 1987 the County proposed a public park with beach access in the Town of Highland Beach, and it was approved.  Now after 21 years we are going to continue the litigation to have the park constructed.  The most recent events are that the Planning Board submitted 31 conditions to the approval.  Some of them were meant to restrict the water activities which were not supposed to be part of the agreement.  Now they are going to litigate this, but no date has even been set as of yet.  So I guess that is why it is so hard to get something done even in the smallest part of government.  I say Just Build it and They Will Come!!!

  Where to Eat? Highland Beach is strictly a Residential town with only 1 business, Holiday Inn Oceanside, being allowed to operate as it was grandfathered in prior to the laws changing prohibiting businesses to operate within the Town of Highland Beach.  The Holiday Inn Ocean side is located directly on the ocean nestled right before Delray Beach limits.  It consists of 115 recently renovated rooms, and has a swimming pool, fitness facility, and a restaurant called Lattitudes Ocean Grill.  Lattitudes has an amazing Sunday brunch, and casual food during the day and evening.  Although Highland Beach only has that one restaurant in the surrounding areas including Boca Raton there are some phenomenal restaurants.  Here is a list: Melting Pot Restaurant (561)-997-7472 A great place for some...
