Town rejects helipad for Hillsboro Beach mansion

The developer failed to win an exemption from the town's ban on on aircraft landings

A 60,000-square-foot mansion in Hillsboro Beach will be equipped almost everything a wealthy owner would want – except, perhaps, a helicopter pad.

The town of Hillsboro Beach denied a request by developer Joseph Leone to build a helipad on the property, known as Le Palais Royal, which is still under construction.

The oceanfront mansion, previously listed for sale for $159 million, is located at 935 Hillsboro Mile in Hillsboro Beach, just north of Fort Lauderdale.

Real estate agent William Price told Local10.com that the property is currently unlisted because construction is continuing: “At this price point, it’s got to be perfect.”

Hillsboro Beach town manager Robert Kellog told Local10.com the helipad request was rejected because the town prohibits aircraft landings within its boundaries and Leone “couldn’t identify any hardships” that would qualify his property for an exemption.

Leone is planning an appeal.

Even without a helipad, Le Palais Royal still has plenty of selling points. The 11-bedroom 17-bathroom features an 18-seat IMAX theater, a private dock, a 4,500-square-foot infinity pool, a 12-foot waterfall, a water slide and a swim-up bar. The property also has an underground garage with parking for dozens of cars. [Local10.com]Mike Seemuth
