Douglas Elliman Development Marketing Selected as Exclusive Sales and Marketing Brokerage for Forté on Flagler Drive in Downtown West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – February 27, 2020 – The development team behind Forté, a planned 41-residence waterfront condominium on Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach, announced Douglas Elliman Development Marketing as the project’s exclusive sales and marketing brokerage.

Designed by Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, Forté will be a sleek, 24-story boutique tower with only two residences on each residential floor, providing unmatched views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Palm Beach island. The expansive three- and four-bedroom residences range from 4,200 to 8,400 square feet with the option to combine residences for a full-floor home. Forté’s six-bedroom penthouse spans 8,900 enclosed square feet and 2,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space that includes a summer kitchen, a cabana bath and 360-degree views from a private pool.

“Forté’s location in downtown West Palm Beach along the Intracoastal Waterway presents a rare opportunity for future residents to experience waterfront living in a vibrant and walkable downtown setting,” said Taylor Collins, managing partner at Two Roads Development. “Coinciding with the debut of our sales gallery, we look forward to the advent of construction and to making this project a reality.”

“We are excited to work with Two Roads Development and Alpha Blue Ventures on this groundbreaking project in South Florida,” said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman’s Florida Brokerage. “Palm Beach County has seen a record-breaking year and with the market’s continued strength, we anticipate extremely strong interest in Forté and look forward to the project’s success.”

The Douglas Elliman Development Marketing team will oversee residential sales from the Forté sales gallery, which will soon open adjacent to the project site on South Flagler Drive.
