Beating out more than 2,500 cities in Florida, Palm Beach Gardens tops the list of Florida’s “Best Cities to Live In” for 2019, and some are even calling it the Sunshine State’s ultimate hidden gem. 

Noted for its terrific schools, businesses, restaurants, and of course all the golf courses and gated communities that fill out the Palm Beach Gardens landscape, it’s easy to see what makes the community just so desirable. 

In addition, Palm Beach Gardens is also close to Florida’s scenic Atlantic

One of the last undeveloped waterfront parcels of land in Jupiter lies where Jones Creek meets the Southwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River. But that could quickly change is Mattamy Homes receives approval from the town council to build homes there. 

Once home to radio towers that belonged to R&R Broadcasting Company, the land located at 500 Delaware Boulevard is now overgrown and full of wildlife, which is exactly what makes this latest development proposal so tricky. 

As noted in a recent interview featured in the Palm Beach Post, some nearby residents consider the parcel a “true wildlife corridor,” and there are also concerns regarding additional traffic being added to an already dangerous intersection along Indiantown Road should development move

West Palm Beach Condo TowerDespite being taller than what city regulations allow for a site that’s smaller than 1.4 acres, the city commission essentially gave developers the green light to build a new, 24-story luxury condo tower at 1309 S. Flagler Street in West Palm Beach.

According to reports, the vote to initially approve the project was unanimous, although a final vote will still be needed in just a few short weeks. 

If ultimately built, the new 1309 S. Flagler Street condo tower will have just 42 units—only two residences per floor—but still be among the tallest towers in West Palm Beach. 

Two Roads Development and Alpha Blue Ventures are behind the condo proposal, and plans also call for units to have private elevator access, deep wraparound balconies with sweeping

Palm Beach County saw a population surge from July 2017 to July 2018, according to new numbers from the U.S. Census.

And thanks to no state tax and a recent change in federal tax law that now makes it more challenging to deduct income and property taxes in states like New York, New Jersey, and others around the country, it’s certainly possible more and more people will continue opting for the Sunshine State moving forward.

Back around this exact time last year it was reported that Palm Beach County’s population was projected to surpass 1.5 million people in 2018, even though population projections and statistics can be somewhat inaccurate. 

Regardless of the exact figure, however, the low unemployment rate, attractive new tax laws, and of course

Palm Beach Gardens Gated CommunitiesThe Palm Beach area and gated communities go hand-in-hand. Whether you love the extra sense of privacy and security a gated community offers or all the extra lifestyle amenities most provide, the advantages of buying a gated home are far reaching.  

In Palm Beach Gardens, gated homes are especially plentiful, and that can often lead to a much more intense home search. To help narrow down your options, though, we recommend taking a closer look at what we consider a few of the top gated communities in Palm Beach Gardens specifically. 

 The Cove 

The Cove is one of the more private gated communities you’ll find in the area, consisting of just 20 estate homes. All homes for sale in The Cove were built in the late 2000s, offer between 3,000 and around

We explore several options below…

Penn Waterway 

While not one of Jupiter’s largest communities, some might say it’s among the most desirable, especially for boat owners.
