The Palm Beach ultra luxury market has shown no signs of slowing down during the pandemic.
In June, the Kennedy family’s former Palm Beach compound, where President John F. Kennedy worked on his 1961 inaugural address, sold for $70 million.

Developer Todd Michael Glaser paid $17 million in June for the non-waterfront Palm Beach estate at 127 Dunbar Road, with plans to restore it and live there with his family.

Also in June, luxury homebuilder Mark Pulte sold the lakefront lot at 445 North Lake Way for $23 million.
