Revolutionizing Oceanfront Luxury: Waldorf Astoria Residences Pompano Beach


Waldorf Astoria’s First Purely Residential Concept Raises the Bar for Ultra-Luxury Living in Burgeoning Beach Town

Amidst a remarkable surge in demand for upscale residential properties across South Florida, emerging markets such as Pompano Beach are seizing the moment to allure prospective residents. Situated amidst renowned destinations like Miami, Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach has emerged as one of the fastest-growing property markets in the Sunshine State.

In an exciting collaboration, esteemed developers Related Group and Merrimac Ventures have partnered with hospitality leader Hilton to introduce the breathtaking Waldorf Astoria Residences Pompano Beach (The Residences). Offering a unique opportunity to reside in a piece of history, this extraordinary development marks Waldorf Astoria’s inaugural venture into purely residential concepts and its premier project in Broward County.

Crafted to epitomize the opulence and convenience of Waldorf Astoria’s renowned five-star service, alongside top-tier architecture and amenities, this remarkable development sets a new standard for ultra-luxurious oceanside living in Pompano Beach.

The striking 28-story structure boasts 92 impeccably designed residential units, featuring premier designs led by Nichols Architects in collaboration with KORA, interiors by BAMO, and landscaping by Enea Landscape Architecture. Offering a hospitality-inspired array of amenities, including a beachfront café with room service, a resident lounge, pool, jacuzzi, and cabanas with poolside dining and wellness facilities, this new development is set to accelerate South Florida’s expansion and contribute to Pompano Beach’s transformation into a highly coveted locale.

Nick Perez, President of Related’s condominium development group, remarked, “Our aim was to encapsulate the timeless elegance and exclusivity of the Waldorf Astoria brand within a residential framework. We dedicated extensive time to delve into the rich history of the Waldorf Astoria brand, engaging with its brand ambassadors and immersing ourselves in its premier destinations worldwide—all to capture every nuance and subtlety of the brand’s enduring essence.”


South Florida’s ‘Goldilocks Zone’

The introduction of The Residences coincides with a notable rejuvenation for Pompano Beach, affectionately dubbed “Florida’s Warmest Welcome.” Related and Merrimac Ventures have dedicated years to orchestrating the thoughtful revitalization of Pompano, and the broader Broward market, into an undeniable upscale destination.

Renowned for its laid-back lifestyle and pristine beaches, Pompano Beach has witnessed a surge in transformative housing developments spearheaded by Related and Merrimac over the years. Related, recognized for its foresight in pioneering markets well ahead of competitors, made its mark in Pompano Beach by launching Solemar, the area’s inaugural luxury condo tower in several decades, in March 2020 amidst a global pandemic. While many developers halted operations, Related persevered, swiftly selling out all 105 units in less than six months, surpassing $200 million in sales. This success sparked a fervent interest in the Pompano Beach market, characteristic of Related’s impactful initiatives.

“Pompano Beach occupies a ‘Goldilocks’ zone,” remarked Perez. “Situated between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach, residents here enjoy access to the region’s finest offerings at more favorable prices.”

Dev Motwani, CEO of Merrimac Ventures, reflected on Pompano Beach’s remarkable transformation, attributing it to years of meticulous development and public investment. With a decade-long ownership of the site, Motwani emphasized the uniqueness of the property, waiting patiently for the right vision to materialize. Now, partnering with Related and Hilton, they eagerly anticipate advancing what promises to be a transformative development, not only for Pompano but for northern Broward County as a whole.

With over three decades of experience in Broward County, Merrimac Ventures and the Motwani family have deployed $3 billion in capital to date, boasting an active pipeline valued at over $3.7 billion. Similarly, Related and the Perez family possess a prolific history in Broward, with a portfolio of neighborhood-defining projects spanning several decades and several billion dollars under active development.

The Iconic Waldorf Astoria Experience

Crafted as a tribute to the rich history and legacy of the Waldorf Astoria brand, The Residences incorporates numerous nods to the esteemed name.

Peacock Alley, reminiscent of its counterparts in Waldorf Astoria properties worldwide, serves as the central gathering area where residents converge to mingle and socialize. Alongside, an upcoming F&B concept and various signature touches enhance the experience, including a meticulously designed clock inspired by the iconic timepiece in New York.

The influence of the renowned hotel brand extends to the meticulously curated lifestyle amenities spanning over 15,000 square feet. Notable highlights encompass a sprawling 20,000-square-foot oceanfront pool deck featuring a lap pool, private spa, outdoor bar, dining lounge, summer kitchens, and resident cabanas. Additionally, residents enjoy exclusive, direct access to 200 linear feet of pristine beachfront and a beachside cafe. Moreover, the property stands out as one of the region’s select few to boast a private marina, boasting 19 slips capable of accommodating vessels up to 45 feet in length.

Further enhancing residents’ well-being, The Residences offer an extensive array of wellness-forward amenities. These include a resident-exclusive spa with a private treatment room and separate His/Her sauna and steam rooms. Additionally, a state-of-the-art fitness center equipped with the latest cardio machines, strength and conditioning equipment, and dedicated movement studio and spin room cater to residents’ fitness needs.

The Residences offer an array of additional entertainment options, including a ground-floor F&B concept, billiards lounge, children’s entertainment room, and multi-sport simulator. Managed by Waldorf Astoria, buyers will benefit from round-the-clock signature resident services, such as in-resident dining, beach and pool-side service, personal concierge, and more. Notably, the property will showcase a curated selection of museum-quality art from the esteemed Jorge M. Perez Contemporary Art Collection.

The Residences will be graced by Waldorf Astoria’s renowned five-star service, featuring a signature Waldorf Astoria Personal Concierge, 24-hour security and reception, doorman and bellman services, valet parking, direct parcel delivery, and a dedicated on-site Director of Residences.

Ocean Inspired Living

The design of The Residences aims to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living spaces, maximizing the appeal of South Florida’s climate and natural splendor. Alongside the private marina, residents benefit from exclusive access to 200 linear feet of beachfront, offering proximity to restored dunes and the serene waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Acknowledging the magnetic draw of the ocean and the growing interest in yachting within coastal havens, this development provides privileged access to premier marinas and amenities, enhancing its allure for discerning residents. The tower’s innovative collaboration with Residence Yacht Club, a charter yacht service, seamlessly links residents to curated experiences with access to an elite fleet of vessels for exploration with family, friends, or business associates.

Concierge services at The Residences facilitate residents’ access to a curated inventory of featured yachts online, tailoring bespoke voyages to their preferences. Whether it’s a sophisticated dinner party with five-star catering or a day of family fun with water toys and jet skis, each charter is meticulously orchestrated to provide a sense of personalized ownership. Complimentary amenities onboard include wine or champagne, a fresh fruit platter, as well as custom towels, cushions, and other accessories, ensuring a luxurious experience for all aboard.

Thoughtfully Designed Residences

The Residences, boasting interiors meticulously crafted by BAMO to harmonize with Pompano Beach’s relaxed lifestyle, will present an exclusive assortment of 92 residences. These homes offer diverse floor plans, aiming to emulate the essence of single-family living, ranging from two to five bedrooms and spanning in size from 2,100 square feet to 6,100 square feet.

Each residence epitomizes the same meticulous attention to detail evident throughout the tower, featuring a private elevator foyer for enhanced privacy, soaring ceilings, and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing expansive ocean and Intracoastal views. Standard amenities include expansive balconies, bespoke Italian cabinetry, and premium Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. For added convenience, residences are delivered ready for occupancy with an array of designer finishes.

Within The Residences, coastal-inspired, earthy tones mingle with abundant natural light in the generous communal areas, evoking the serenity of coastal living. A selection of designer finishes further enhances the ease of ownership.

Nick Perez expressed, “From the design and architecture to the resident services, this property truly embodies the illustrious brand. Our approach leaves no room for compromise, and we eagerly anticipate the market’s response to this remarkable development.”
