Developers Related Group (Related) and Merrimac Ventures, in collaboration with Hilton, are excited to introduce their latest project: the Waldorf Astoria Residences Pompano Beach. Sitting on a two-acre oceanfront site at 1350 South Ocean Boulevard, this 28-story tower designed by KORA with Nichols Architects as the architect of record and landscape design by Enea Landscape Architecture will feature a total of 92 residential units, with interiors masterfully crafted by BAMO. With a beachfront cafe offering room service, a resident lounge, a pool deck complete with a jacuzzi and cabanas for poolside dining, comprehensive wellness facilities, and nearly two dozen boat slips, this new development is poised to contribute to South Florida’s ongoing growth. Nestled along the Atlantic Ocean, the Waldorf Astoria Residences Pompano Beach, known as The Residences, represents a notable milestone for the iconic Waldorf Astoria brand as it embarks on its inaugural venture into exclusively residential concepts. Furthermore, this project marks Waldorf Astoria’s grand entrance into Broward County, making it a highly anticipated addition to the region’s evolving real estate landscape.
KORA and Nichols Architects’ vision for The Waldorf Astoria Pompano Beach Residences seamlessly blends luxury with refined aesthetics, capturing the tranquil essence of the beachfront locale. Inspired by the gentle smoothing of beach pebbles, the building’s graceful curves evoke a sense of sophistication and serenity. Adding to its allure, bronze accents pay homage to the iconic Waldorf Astoria New York, while signature “peacock columns” create a captivating facade. The grand entrance, marked by distinctive architectural elements, welcomes residents with a sense of opulence, befitting the Waldorf Astoria brand.
“We set out to distill the timeless elegance and exclusivity of the Waldorf Astoria brand into a purely residential format,” said Nick Perez, President of Related’s condominium development group. “From the design and architecture to the resident services, we’ve pulled out all the stops to ensure this property fully embodies the Waldorf Astoria brand. There is no compromise in our approach and we are so excited to see how the market reacts to this incredible development.”
The Waldorf Astoria Residential Experience
As a homage to the enduring legacy of the Waldorf Astoria brand, The Residences artfully incorporates subtle tributes to its rich heritage.
The tower’s rendition of Peacock Alley is a standout tribute, a cherished hallmark found at Waldorf Astoria properties worldwide. This exclusive space, solely reserved for residents, will serve as the property’s primary social hub, where residents convene to see and be seen. This space will soon unveil a unique F&B concept and a range of signature features. Enthusiasts of the brand will also notice a meticulously crafted clock, a loving homage to the original timepiece adorning the Waldorf Astoria in New York.
“Waldorf Astoria has been committed to offering sincerely elegant service, culinary excellence, and unforgettable experiences since its inception,” says Dino Michael, SVP & Global Head, Hilton Luxury Brands. “With the announcement of Waldorf Astoria Residences Pompano Beach, we are thrilled that the reputation and expectations associated with our luxury brand will reach new audiences and buyers with our evolved approach to the real estate space.”
The Waldorf Astoria influence extends throughout the development’s 15,000+ square feet of carefully curated lifestyle amenities. A significant highlight is the impressive 20,000-square-foot oceanfront pool deck, featuring a lap pool and a private spa, an outdoor bar and dining lounge, summer kitchens, and exclusive resident cabanas. Furthermore, residents enjoy direct, private access to an expansive 200 linear feet of pristine beachfront and an inviting beachside cafe. In an exclusive offering for the region, the property also features a private marina, offering 19 slips and accommodating vessels up to 45 feet in length.
The Residences prioritize resident well-being with an extensive array of wellness-focused amenities. These include a resident-exclusive spa with a private treatment room and separate His/Her sauna and steam rooms, a state-of-the-art fitness center with cutting-edge cardio machines and strength and conditioning equipment, and a dedicated movement studio and spin room.
The development presents a ground-floor F&B concept, a sophisticated billiards lounge, a children’s entertainment room, and a versatile multi-sport simulator for additional entertainment options. Managed by Waldorf Astoria, buyers will relish 24/7 signature resident services, encompassing in-resident dining, beach and pool-side service, personal concierge services, and much more. Adding to its allure, the property will also feature a carefully curated selection of museum-quality art from the internationally acclaimed Jorge M. Perez Contemporary Art Collection.
A Beachfront Enclave
The Residences makes its grand entrance against Pompano Beach’s remarkable renaissance, earning the well-deserved moniker of “Florida’s Warmest Welcome.” Pompano Beach has undergone a stunning metamorphosis, a testament to the enduring dedication of Related, Merrimac Ventures, and their longstanding mission to elevate Pompano and the wider Broward market into an undisputed haven of luxury.
“Pompano Beach’s transformation has been extraordinary – the result of many years of careful, thoughtful development and public investment in the community, which we’ve witnessed in the last decade since we’ve owned the site,” says Dev Motwani, CEO of Merrimac Ventures. “While we’ve completed several developments in the market over the years, we’ve always felt that this property was unique and intentionally waited until we found the right vision for this specific location. Now, with Related and Hilton as our partners, we’re excited to move forward on what is sure to be a transformative development, not only for Pompano but for northern Broward County as a whole.”
Merrimac Ventures and the Motwani family boasts a remarkable legacy of over three decades of development and operations within Broward County. Their imprint on the region is profound, with capital investments exceeding $3 billion and an active project pipeline valued at over $3.7 billion. Similarly, Related and the Perez family have left an indelible mark on Broward County, with a rich history of neighborhood-defining projects spanning several decades and several billion dollars currently under development.
An Unmatched Backdrop
Nestled strategically amidst the vibrant urban hubs of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach, Pompano Beach offers an enviable beachfront lifestyle without the exorbitant price tag. Historically cherished as a tranquil waterfront escape for travelers, Pompano Beach has transformed remarkably. Fueled by the surging demand for South Florida real estate, this once-quiet beachside village has become one of the Sunshine State’s most rapidly growing real estate markets. Property values in Pompano Beach have enjoyed a steady ascent, spurred by fervent demand for new construction coupled with limited supply.
This upward trajectory is bolstered by substantial public investments, including multimillion-dollar injections into the burgeoning Downtown arts and entertainment district. Combined with sustained buyer interest, these strategic enhancements are poised to accelerate the area’s growth even further. The neighboring Fishing Village, adorned with open-air pavilions and upscale dining establishments, contributes to the neighborhood’s transformation into a lively, pedestrian-friendly community. For those who crave the tranquility of nature over the hustle of city life, residents are only steps away from meticulously restored dunes, serene tree-shaded outdoor attractions, and an array of beachside activities that define this thriving coastal haven.
The Suite Life
Carefully curated by BAMO to seamlessly align with Pompano’s laid-back lifestyle, The Residences boasts an exclusive collection of just 92 homes. These residences offer a range of floor plans, each thoughtfully designed to evoke the essence of single-family living. From two to five bedrooms, the homes vary in size from a generous 2,100 square feet to an expansive 6,100 square feet.
Every residence exemplifies the same meticulous craftsmanship that defines the entire tower. A private elevator foyer enhances privacy, while lofty ceilings and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows frame breathtaking ocean and Intracoastal views. Standard features include oversized balconies, custom Italian cabinetry, and top-tier Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. To simplify the ownership experience, the residences are delivered ready for occupancy with an array of designer finishes.
