Developers of Sabbia Beach, the first new Pompano Beach residential development in nearly a decade, topped off construction of the 19-story building Thursday morning by raising a palm tree to the top floor. Brunch and cocktails were served at the Sabbia Beach sales gallery where Sabbia developer Danny Salvatore and Pompano Beach Mayor Lamar Fisher invited guests and buyers to step outside and watch the palm tree being raised in celebration.
Salvatore, a Pompano Beach resident himself, said he sees Sabbia Beach as a development that will help improve the image of Pompano Beach. â€œWe are looking forward to completing this spectacular building that is a part of transforming Pompano Beach into a vibrant, multi-dimensional destination,â€ he said.
The building, designed by the architecture firm Arquitectonica, has 20,000 square feet of private beach and contains 68 residences.
Salvatore said that both of the buildingâ€™s pent houses have already been sold, which shows him that people are identifying with Pompano Beach and whatâ€™s to come. â€œWe couldnâ€™t be prouder to be Pompano Beach pioneers,â€ Salvatore said. â€œThe breathtaking beach view that our buyers and guests enjoyed when our sales gallery was across the street is now becoming an oceanfront reality.â€
Mayor Lamar Fisher thanked Salvatore for his dedication to making Pompano Beach a more popular place to reside. â€œOn behalf of the City of Pompano Beach, its commission and all of its residents, thank you for what youâ€™ve done and your commitment to our city,â€ Fisher said. â€œIt is well noticed and it is a game changer for us.â€
The interiors of Sabbia Beach will have an â€œorganic, luxurious and timeless feelâ€ designed by the luxury interior design firm Steven G. â€œSabbia Beach was designed to blend into its natural surroundings while offering sweeping views and an infinite sense of space,â€ Salvatore said.
85 percent of the Sabbia Beach condos have already sold out, according to Mayor Fisher. Construction is scheduled to end in the second quarter of 2018. #SabbiaBeach #PompanoBeach@SabbiaBeach
