Now open, the luxury apartment community developed by Tortoise Properties receives a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy and begins welcoming residents

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Renowned for its vibrant culture and coastal charm, West Palm Beach has long been synonymous with sophisticated living among its palm-lined streets. Complementing the city’s landscape with a fusion of modern elegance and metropolitan allure is Tortoise One, a new mixed-use, multifamily development that is now open in the downtown corridor. Offering residents an elevated sanctuary of exquisite apartment homes amidst a symphony of lavish amenities, the project received its final Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) on April 16, 2024.

Led by Tortoise Properties – a privately held real estate firm specializing in commercial, multifamily and mixed-use assets in South Florida – this visionary project caters to the diverse needs of today’s contemporary renters, from young professionals to families and entrepreneurs. Strategically located at 740 N Dixie Highway, Tortoise One presents 264 residences within two eight-story towers, featuring studios and spacious one and two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 548 to 1,053 square feet. A vast array of amenities spanning nearly 21,000 square feet serves a wide range of interests and pursuits, complemented by 3,325 square feet of ground-floor lifestyle retail space.

“Tortoise One embodies our steadfast commitment to innovative design and the pursuit of elevated experiences,” said Jake Geleerd, co-founder and chief executive officer of Tortoise Properties. “We are delighted to introduce this exceptional endeavor, which establishes an unprecedented canvas for VIP living within the fabric of West Palm Beach. Nestled alongside iconic attractions, this property heralds a new era of sophistication, seamlessly blending thoughtful amenities and meticulously crafted living spaces in an address that says it all.”

Designed by MSA Architects with interiors by Builders Design and constructed by Verdex, each apartment exemplifies refined elegance, with finishes and features that elevate the modern aesthetic, and private balconies with sweeping views. Intricate wood-style flooring and luxe pendant lighting are enriched by floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the interiors with natural light. Kitchens are designed for both functionality and style, showcasing kitchen islands, custom tile backsplash, stone countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. Ample storage adds to the convenience, including walk-in closets, while bathrooms boast tiled showers, soft-close cabinets and double vanities in select residences. Additional highlights include a high-efficiency in-unit washer and dryer, a wireless-controlled smart thermostat, and secure keyless entry.

Tortoise One’s amenity program offers something for everyone. Residents can unwind and socialize in the inviting social clubrooms and lounges, while a wellness meditative lounge provides a tranquil escape for rejuvenation. Fitness enthusiasts will appreciate the state-of-the-art fitness center and rooftop professional pickleball court, which beckons novices and pros alike. The North and South Towers, connected by a glass skybridge suspended over Eucalyptus Street, provide access to buildings’ shared amenities, and stand as pillars of the community.
