Boca Raton Oceanfront and Intracoastal Luxury Condos

They also began their development in the 1960’s. Most of them line the oceanfront in Boca Raton, and in Highland Beach north of Spanish River Blvd., fronting both the ocean and intracoastal. Floor plans generally range from 1 to 3 bedroom units with some larger penthouses, offered as furnished or unfurnished, and prices ranging mostly from $200,000 to about $2 million.
