Five years after a luxury condominium was first proposed for prime property at 1 S. Ocean Blvd., its developer has returned to the city seeking approval to build the 70-unit project.
Miami real estate developer Ramon Llorens plans a seven-story building with two- to five- bedroom units ranging from 2,200 to 4,500 square feet.
The One South Ocean project would sit on 3.5 acres at the intersection of South Ocean Boulevard and Palmetto Park Road that has been occupied by an office building and 20-unit condo for years.
When architect Jorge Garcia of GarciaStromberg GS4 Studios in West Palm Beach presented his plans to the Community Appearance Board for a preliminary review on Sept. 7, he said the design is similar to the original one but has been enhanced with many water features, lush landscaping and large trees.
CAB members liked what they saw. “It will be the prettiest building on Boca Raton beach,” said Tiery Boykin.

Vehicle access to the building exists on South Ocean Boulevard and two other sides, but not from Palmetto Park Road.

Although it is actually one building, it appears to be divided by entryways on South Ocean Boulevard and Wavecrest Way that run through the project. An underground parking garage will provide 180 spaces.
One South Ocean has the support of the Riviera Civic Association. President Katie Barr MacDougall said 14 association members were in frequent communication with Garcia to discuss project plans and to negotiate small changes. Garcia was very willing to accommodate their requests, she said.
“We support them,” she said of the project. “We are looking forward to it.”
The condo is at the beginning of a long city approval process that includes further review by the CAB, Planning and Zoning Board and City Council.
Llorens, who could not be reached for comment on the project and anticipated unit prices, started that process in 2016 and received all necessary city approvals, Garcia said, but then halted the project to make changes that greatly enhanced it.
