With just a fraction of its condos pre-sold, Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences hired Compass to handle sales and marketing of the relaunched project under construction on Singer Island.

Developed by WRS Development, LLC, an affiliate of Dilip Barot’s Creative Choice Group, Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences will consist of an 18-story tower and a 19-story tower named Peace and Happiness. There will be 182 condo units in total. The oceanfront project at 3100 Ocean Drive in Riviera Beach has topped off and is set to be completed in the first quarter of 2020, according to a spokesperson. Compass’ development division was brought in.

Amrit relaunched sales in 2017, a decade after Barot had pulled the plug on the previously planned development. An in-house team has been handling sales, which currently stand at 20 percent, the spokesperson said. Prices for the units, including 11 penthouses with rooftop terraces, range from the $900,000s to more than $4 million.

During the last recession, Barot returned 86 deposits to buyers of his previously planned Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences. But he held onto the vacant site and began construction in 2017.

The condo development is aimed at “mindful living,” focusing around nutrition, fitness, mindfulness, sleep and relaxation. The project plans to feature resort amenities such as an Aayush Spa, fitness center, salon, oceanfront fitness zone and beachfront spa and pool.

In recent years, developers have been targeting Singer Island for new oceanfront condominiums. VistaBlue Singer Island, a 19-story tower with 58 units, was recently completed by Third Palm Capital; and 5000 North Ocean, is currently under development by Kolter Group. The 19-story, 48-unit condo project is expected to be completed later this year.
