Living well comes naturally to those at Olara. Studies show that coastal environments greatly enhance mental, physical and emotional health. Olara, a 275-residence LEED-certified condominium developed by Savanna, features an impressive spectrum of holistic indoor-outdoor luxury amenities.

Upon arrival, residents are welcomed into a minimalist, light-filled lobby featuring organic textures, clean lines and warm, bright tones. Olara rises 26 stories and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, Palm Beach Island and the Atlantic Ocean, and its residents enjoy panoramic views and year-round access to a private dock. At Olara, the more than 80,000 square feet of amenity spaces, carefully designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates, instill peace, comfort and curiosity. “Teeming with details that are scarcely found elsewhere, from our world-class, indoor-outdoor fitness center overlooking stunning water views to our private dock and houseboat catering to those looking to embrace the best of South Florida’s nautical experiences, Olara is setting a new standard for development in the Palm Beaches and beyond,” says Chris Schlank, co-chairman and president of Savanna. 

The waterfront oasis—designed by award-winning architectural firm Arquitectonica—features two- to four-bedroom (plus den) residences and indoor-outdoor personalized services. “As a true haven for effortless living, Olara features an expansive collection of resort-style amenities that will enhance the waterfront residential lifestyle of West Palm Beach along North Flagler Drive,” says Schlank. Top-tier concierge, private security, valet, house car, in-home dining offerings and access to an exclusive community app remain at residents’ disposal at all times.

Olara’s health and wellness amenity spaces exist in perfect harmony with nature. The 13,000-square-foot world-class fitness center includes spaces for open-air yoga and breath work, an Olympic-size lap pool, and separate dedicated leisure pool. For deeper rest and relaxation, residents can visit the blissful five-star recovery and regeneration spa for a Japanese-style onsen, NormaTec compression therapy and Hypervolt massage equipment. Post-workout, residents can stop by the open-air juice bar, the 30,000-square-foot restaurant and epicurean marketplace helmed by a world-renowned chef, or enjoy in-home dining.
