Champagne and mimosas at the outdoor groundbreaking. With a waiting list and 70 percent of 111 units sold, adding a second Sinai Residences was an occasion to celebrate.
In fact, construction is already underway. And completion’s expected in fall 2022 on the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County campus in west Boca.
“Our original building sold out before move-in,” associate executive director Jay Mikosch said about the residences that went up in 2016.
New buyers are expected to be locals. They’re making the transition from homes in country clubs and gated communities to independent living apartments. “We are continuing to see great demand from homeowners in country club communities who are looking to downsize without compromising their comfort,” said Mel Lowell, Federation COO said.
The apartments are a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus den units up to 3,200 square feet. Prices range from the $500,000s to over $2 million.
Since the groundbreaking, brochures went out in nearby zip codes for the Toby & Leon Cooperman Sinai Residences Boca Raton. Virtual tours are scheduled at 3 p.m. Oct. 8 and 21. They require an RSVP at https://www.sinairesidences.com/events/
Whiting Turner Construction Co. is building the 250,000-square-foot structure. The $410 million project is expected to create more than 1,250 jobs, Federation announced.
The 4.5-acre community will be operated by Federation CCRC Development. Life Care Services will manage the the Residences, including assisted living, rehabilitation, skilled nursing and memory care. There will be a nurse and security on duty 24 hours a day.
