Kolter Placemakers Create Luxurious Residences with a Sense of Community

POSTED ON February 14, 2017 - 5000 North Ocean

In the area where you live, is there a place where people gather? Perhaps there’s a park, playground or coffee shop where you can make that human connection. As times have changed, our gathering places have become more dispersed, but the human need for connection is as strong as ever. That’s why today’s most innovative homebuilders have begun incorporating this philosophy into the development of their projects. In fact, this concept has actually been given a name. It’s called Placemaking. Placemaking is defined as a multi-faceted approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces so that they can capitalize on a community’s assets, inspiration, and potential, with the intention of creating public places that promote people’s health, happiness, and well-being.

When it comes to Florida’s urban luxury real estate market, Kolter Urban is a company whose core values encompass the placemaking philosophy. Headquartered in Palm Beach County, Florida, Kolter Urban takes a unique approach to developing their newest projects.

“As a company, Kolter Urban has developed a brand with some pretty striking features,” said Kolter Urban President, Bob Vail. “First, we choose our locations carefully. Our communities are located in dynamic downtown, coastal locations that provide a walkable lifestyle. With a great deal of thought and care, we create warm and welcoming gathering places and add unbeatable amenities. We combine this sense of place with innovative architectural designs and breathtaking views through dramatic expanses of glass. This winning formula has created so much more than incredible buildings. We’ve developed vibrant communities where people really want to live.”

A Kolter Urban community that has attracted a great deal of attention is 5000 North Ocean, the most luxurious project to be developed north of the Breakers in Palm Beach. This 19-story oceanfront tower is a beachfront sanctuary, featuring lush gardens of palms and seagrasses. This project includes 48 very special residences, each offering an expansive floorplan and a private access-controlled elevator. Residences start at $2 million.

This project is built around the placemaking philosophy, with resident-only amenities that include a contemporary, resort-style oceanfront pool and Oasis Beach Zone. A cantilever roof covers the cabana seating area, where two sleek fireplaces create an inviting spot for neighbors to gather. There’s also a state-of-the-art fitness center and a resident club room for entertaining, relaxation or holding meetings. Secured garage parking, climate-controlled resident storage and the latest access-control technology, along with professional, on-site management staff and concierge ensure a private, maintenance free condominium lifestyle unlike any other.

“The Kolter team knows that buyers don’t just purchase a place to live. They want to be part of a community where they not only love their home, but feel a part of something bigger than themselves. That’s what the luxurious residences at 5000 N. Ocean provide-a sense of place, a real community.” explained Bobby Julien, Kolter President.
