Ten of the 63 luxury homes at Pointe Midtown already have been sold and the developer says residents will be able to move in by March.
Twenty homes will be finished by the move in date, said Ascend Properties partner Dean Borg. The community’s clubhouse, which includes a swimming pool with a lake view, also will be completed by March, Borg said.
Ascend Properties broke ground for the construction of Pointe Midtown model homes on June 14. The community, which is on PGA Boulevard just west of Military Trail, will have 13 buildings. It is within walking distance of popular shops and restaurants at the Midtown plaza. It is directly across the street from the recently opened Earth Fare, a chain known for giving added hormones, high fructose corn syrup, artificial fats, artificial sweeteners and other such ingredients “the boot.”
Construction of the first three buildings will start next week, Borg said.
The three- and four-bedroom homes range in price from the high $400,000s to low $600,000s. Each townhome will have a two-car garage. HOA fees will be $295, which includes alarm systems, landscaping, maintenance and basic cable, Borg said.
But the main selling point is the community’s “walkability” and “slice of urban vitality,” said Borg.
“When you come home Friday from the office you don’t have to get back in your car until Monday morning,” he said. Proximity to the Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Center and an expanded city park is also a plus, he said.
Most of the buyers are “empty nesters,” who Borg describes as couples whose children have moved out and “want to downsize but stay close to friends and relatives.”
Families and young professional couples make up the other group of buyers, who are more attracted to the four-bedroom models that have a larger family room and an upstairs master bedroom, Borg said.
Borg said the townhouses will be identical to Ascend Properties’ Pointe 100 townhome community in Boca Raton, which sold out in late 2017.
