Amid a wave of new development in Singer Island, South Florida luxury homebuilder Robert Castellano is seeking approval for a new condo project on the much quieter southern side of the island.
Robert Castellano Building and Design purchased three waterfront motels in Palm Beach Shores for $6.5 million, where he is seeking to build the new condo project.
Castellano bought 150 Inlet Way, 200 Inlet Way and 206 Inlet Way, which total 17,864 square feet, for $363 per square foot, records show.
A spokesperson for Castellano said the group is looking to develop a boutique condo project on the site, but it still needs approval from the town of Palm Beach Shores.
Castellano is a luxury homebuilder who is married to Brenda Nestor. Nestor — a former-girlfriend-turned-business-associate of corporate raider Victor Posner — was named the primary beneficiary of his $321 million estate in 2002. She has been entangled in a slew of litigation in recent years over her control of Posner’s estate.
Castellano has built and designed homes in the luxury home enclaves of Windmill Reserve and Seven Isles Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale as well as in Landmark Ranch Estates and Sunshine Ranches in Southwest Ranches.
The properties at 150 Inlet Way, 200 Inlet Way and 206 Inlet Way currently consist of older, low-rise motels built in 1950, records show. A group of New York companies tied to Staten Island Premier Properties sold the property.
Robert Castellano Building and Design secured a $5.5 million mortgage from Fryd Mortgage, records show.
Palm Beach Shores is a small town of just over 1,000 people on the southern tip of Singer Island. It borders Riviera Island. Developers have started targeting Singer Island for new luxury projects.
Another condo tower, 182-unit Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences, is under construction at 3100 Ocean Drive.
