Prominent New York developer Frank Sciame launched a Palm Beach-based homebuilding venture.
The family-owned Sciame Homes is affiliated with the Northeast construction and development firms bearing the Sciame name for nearly 40 years, Palm Beach Daily News reported. Some of the family’s most notable projects include the luxury Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side and the exterior restoration of the Guggenheim Museum.
Sciame’s Palm Beach projects are smaller in scale thus far. The company acquired and renovated four 1950s-era homes on the town’s North End. Two of the residences were already sold for a profit, with a third under contract.
The company plans to begin construction on a British Colonial-style home at 240 Angler Avenue by the end of the month.
“I think a lot of people are like me,” Sciame told the Daily News. “I want things done quickly. I want to buy it and enjoy it.” [Palm Beach Daily News] — Eric Kalis
