Experience The Best of Both Worlds on Singer Island
POSTED ON August 24, 2017 - 5000 North Ocean
Just to the north of the Palm Beach Inlet, the renowned barrier island of Singer Island has become one of the most sought after oceanfront destinations in Florida. Spanning for just over 4.7 miles along the coastline, Singer Island offers the best of both worlds.
ON SOUTH SINGER ISLAND, the fun never ends, and visitors from around the world take advantage of the numerous beach resorts, boating facilities and public access parks to enjoy the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The Blue Heron Bridge, Phil Foster Park and Sailfish Marina play host to dozens of local events throughout the year that celebrate the South Florida waterfront lifestyle. For those who love great beach bar, the Reef Tiki, Coconuts on the Beach or Two Drunken Goats are popular watering holes and a great place to meet up with friends.
South Singer Island is also home to Ocean Reef Park for sun and fun. Locals and resort visitors alike are drawn to the Park for the shallow water reefs located just off shore, where some of the area’s best snorkeling and diving can be found. There’s no doubt that visitors and guests who want to be in the heart of the activity will find plenty of action on South Singer Island throughout the day.
For those who prefer a more peaceful and private atmosphere, North Singer Island stands in contrast to the southern half of the island. As you continue your drive north, you’ll notice a distinctive transition just after you pass Ocean Reef Park. Singer Island is transformed into a more natural, waterfront neighborhood. There are no beach resorts in North Singer Island, only a few luxury condominium towers with private gated entries and very limited public beach access. The atmosphere is much more serene with many of the oceanfront residents spending less than six months a year on the Island, creating plenty of seclusion for beach lovers.
Look to the west side as you’re driving north on AlA and you’ll find that the residential neighborhoods of South Singer Island have given way to the wide waters of the Intracoastal Waterway. Expansive landscaped sidewalks meander along AlA providing a health trail for fitness enthusiasts who enjoy the magnificence of the waterfront views while working out.
CONTINUE NORTH, and you’ll enter the John D. MacArthur State Park, a one-of-a-kind oceanfront preserve protected from future development. Bird watching, kayak tours, photography classes, turtle walks and other environment eco tours are available for visitors. Parking is limited with golf cart trolley access over boardwalks that wind through the mangroves to the pristine beaches.
Adjacent the oceanfront state park, you’ll be delighted to discover the prestigious gated neighborhood of Lost Tree Village, home of Jack Nicklaus and family. In fact, the roadway name transitions into Jack Nicklaus Drive as a tribute to the long-time resident and ESPN Sportsman of the Century. Jack Nicklaus Drive connects directly to PGA Boulevard and the world-class dining, shopping, entertainment and golf of Palm Beach Gardens. In fact, within a half mile of the northern end of Singer Island, you’ll find dozens of upscale dining venues, boutiques and services.
North Singer Island is also home to Kolter Urban’s new oceanfront tower, 5000 North Ocean. The 19-story tropical modern design has been thoughtfully planned to take full advantage of the 4.5-acre development site and its 330 ft. of direct Palm Beach oceanfront. The contemporary designed entry maximizes resident privacy by incorporating the native landscape into arrival experience, and residents enjoy more than an acre of private beachside, naturally landscaped gardens. 5000 North Ocean enjoys extremely wide view corridors to both the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean and is surrounded by beautiful wetlands and natural areas. Just 48 exclusive residences will enjoy this spectacular oceanfront address.
Groundbreaking is scheduled for later this year, and prices start at $2 million. For more information, visit 5000NOcean.comor call 844-500-0937.
