When it comes to vertical living in Palm Beach, La Clara checks all the right boxes.
La Clara will rise right next to the Intracoastal.
There are many reasons to fall in love with La Clara, the much-buzzed-about residential tower set to rise next to the Intracoastal Waterway on the 1500 block of South Flagler Drive.
First off are the names behind the project. Developed by the award-winning Great Gulf and Terrace Mountain companies, the high-rise will boast the design talents of Siamak Hariri, an architect with 60 awards to his credit best known for the Bahá’í Temple of South America, a house of worship for people of all faiths set on the foothills of the Andes Mountains right outside Santiago, Chile, that’s widely considered one of the world’s modern architectural marvels.
A living area in one of the high-rise’s 83 luxury residences
Hariri has infused the essence of the temple’s spiritual aesthetic into every aspect of La Clara, a place where residences, as he puts it, “offer a new tangible lifestyle and neighbors share a vision that inspires equilibrium in daily living.”
Rising 25 stories high, La Clara houses 83 one- to three-bedroom residences sized between 1,500 to 3,000 square feet with prices starting at $2 million. Inside these units are top-of-the-line design features such as Miele kitchen and laundry appliances, Kohler bath fixtures, bespoke Snaidero kitchen cabinetry and Caesarstone countertops. Nine-feet-plus ceilings and extra-wide terraces with unobstructed views of the Intracoastal and, in most cases, Palm Beach and the Atlantic add to the allure of the property.
Throughout the public spaces and exterior, white stucco, Roman travertine, coral stone and granite with bronze accents set a tone of luxurious modernity. But it’s the attention to detail when it comes to amenities that ultimately distinguishes La Clara from other luxury condo buildings. Among the on-site extras residents will enjoy is a Tammy Fender skincare concierge offering a range of services, including holistic facials and reflexology, in La Clara’s spa; the Onblonde Pet Spa + Boutique, a so-called “puppy palace” for dogs of all sizes; and the services of master sommelier Virginia Philip, whose team will be available to residents for wine consultations and customized tastings in La Clara’s wine cellar and tasting room.
“As we witness a continued migration from big cities to the Palm Beaches, luxury buyers look for resort services from the comfort of their homes,” says Sales Director Chris Leavitt. “A hallmark of La Clara will be an authentic Palm Beach way of life, where residents can easily experience the bespoke brands of local Palm Beachers.” Sales gallery: 50 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach, 561.898.2174, laclarapalmbeach.com
