COURTESY RENDERING Builders say 3550 South Ocean’s sawtooth form will create unique positioning that bathes each residence indirectly in northern light, while offering the best water views and ocean breezes. COURTESY RENDERING Folks in Palm Beach like to buy great stuff.

And when it’s time to upgrade, they donate or consign it, offering it up on a secondary market.

That’s where Paulette Cooper Noble comes in.

The author has published an updated edition of her “Consignment, Thrift & Vintage Shopping in Palm Beach County.”

The guide lists what it dubs the best of the area’s shops, and it includes an interview with Scott Simmons, Florida Weekly’s antiques columnist and Palm Beach County editor .

Even the wealthiest residents enjoy consignment shopping and such tastemakers as Martha Stewart and Jonathan Adler have been spotted on hunt for goodies at such high-end mainstays as The Church Mouse.

3550 South Ocean begins sales

The condo development 3550 South Ocean has launched sales.

The developer, DDG, says it’s the first new ground-up oceanfront development on Palm Beach in more than a decade.

The pricing for available residences will begin at $2.3 million, the company says.

The building, on the site of the old Palm Beach Hawaiian Ocean in South Palm Beach, will have 30 large residences, each with its own private outdoor space and unobstructed water views.

The two- and three-bedroom units will have 2,500 to 3,400 square feet of living space, and each will have direct elevator access, entry foyers and private balconies.

The building’s modern architecture is a collaboration between local architecture firms Kobi Karp Architecture and Garcia Stromberg. 3550 South Ocean marks DDG’s first foray into Florida.

DDG will break ground on 3550 South Ocean this quarter, with completion expected in 2018.

The sales gallery is at 205 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan. Info available at www.3550southocean.com. ¦
