What do the big boys know? Have we turned a corner?

Is the Palm Beach real estate market showing signs of a rebound? Low interest rates or maybe currency valuations?
A long time builder in the area, Divosta, broke ground to complete phase II of Mallory Creek, a 2200 acre single family home development in Abacoa. PS: They need to plant some trees first.   Compared to the rest of Abacoa, Mallory Creek looks like a wasteland.

In May, Toll Brothers snapped up 77 acres of prime Intracoastal land in Juno Beach from bankrupt WCI Communities for $20M, and are now building a new waterfront community called Frenchman’s Harbor.
WCI obtained site plan approval for 48 single family homes and 30 condos all with 50 foot boat slips. I heard the permits were set to expire and they needed to break ground. Toll Brothers also bought the land on the north side of Indiantown Road where Jupiter Country Club is located from WCI.

New Urban Communities had several commercial parcels sitting idle for years in the Greenwich subdivision also in Abacoa. See Mallory Creek above.

Earlier this year, Kolter acquired a distressed oceanfront property in Gulfstream and unveiled plans for 4001 Ocean, a 34 unit tower. They have however abandoned construction of a new complex on a choice piece of land in North Palm Beach, at least for the time.

Maybe the big boys know something...

Time for the Jupiter Holiday Parade

I've lived in Jupiter for nearly 20 years and raised my family here.  One of the highlights has always been the Jupiter Holiday Parade. The parade is an old-fashioned one with Boy Scouts and local floats and of course Shriners in little cars.  You can join in and walk along if you want and I have many times.

The parade starts on Old Dixie Highway and then winds over the Alt. A1A bridge up to Tequesta.  Maybe I'll see you there.

Riverbend Park in Jupiter Farms

Jupiter Farms is one of the overlooked gems in the Palm Beach & Martin County areas.  One of the reasons is Riverbend Park.

Riverbend Park is nearly 1,000 acres of primitve area, no ball fields here.  The headwaters of the Loxahatchee River, a Federally Designated Wild & Scenic River, are here.  So, naturally its a great place to kayak or canoe.
This group of kayakers was getting ready to head down the river.  Closer to the entrance, Canoe Outiftters were launching canoes full of folks out enjoying the Jupiter Farms area.

If you want to see videos on Riverbend Park, head over to my You Tube channel at www.youtube.com/richardsites then send along to a friend.
