Showing off its future extravagance in miniature form, a $3.5 million sales gallery in downtown Boca Raton offers a glimpse into the life of luxury that awaits future downtown residents when the planned Residences at Mandarin Oriental is built.

The hotel group, known for posh services and designs, anticipates opening its first Florida residential complex along with a hotel — two buildings connected by a sky bridge — on Federal Highway and Camino Real by early 2020.

It won’t be cheap if you are interested in buying. Prices range from $1.5 million to $12.5 million for one- to five-bedroom units. “Boca Raton has no five-star experience yet,” said Harlan Goldberg, director of sales at brokerage firm Douglas Elliman, exclusively handling sales of the residential units. “This will be the renaissance Boca Raton is waiting for and, frankly, deserves.”

The 8,100-square-foot sales gallery, at 10 E. Boca Raton Road, with a doorman and valet, marble floors with custom Italian mosaics, white decor with chandeliers, and a food and beverage bar to greet interested buyers offers a taste of the Mandarin Oriental brand and residences soon-to-come.

“It’s clean,” Goldberg said. “It evokes that Boca Raton-lifestyle.”

The gallery includes kitchen and bath vignettes, with custom Italian cabinetry and fixtures, so buyers can get a sense of what the Mandarin Oriental residences will look like.

Each unit, which begin in size at 1,500 square feet, is custom in the pre-sale stage. And among the exquisite services:

  • Dedicated staff, including a concierge and doorman.
  • Access to Mandarin Oriental hotel amenities, including a private on-site club, spa and gym.
  • Access to a private golf club, west of the property on Military Trail.
  • And “smart home” technology from Audio One for control of light, air and sound systems unit-wide.

There are only two other Mandarin Oriental residential complexes in the U.S. (Atlanta and Boston) and three outside the U.S. (Bangkok, Bali and Bodrum, Turkey).

The hotel and residential complex is part of the high-end Via Mizner mixed-use development that will include include 65,000-square-feet of retail space, including luxury brands you’d find in shopping districts like Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, as well as upscale restaurants.

The scope of the retail complex, on a strip larger than nearby Mizner Park, will rival other shopping districts and elevate Boca Raton’s high-end status, said Goldberg and project developer and Boca Raton resident Albert Piazza.

“Boca Raton has really come into its own over the past few years,” Piazza said. “People want to be here now.”

The project will include 158 hotel rooms and 85 residential units.

The hotel will have a rooftop restaurant, a rooftop pool and a spa, among other amenities.

Buyers can explore the complex on the sales gallery’s nine-screen, interactive video wall — which presents a three-dimensional model of the Mandarin Oriental schematics.

Site demolition for the hotel and residential complex is set to begin this summer.
