THE RITZ-CARLTON RESIDENCES SINGER ISLAND, PALM BEACH PIONEERS NATIONAL MODEL FOR SEA TURTLE PROTECTION
With the end of turtle season, The Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island, Palm Beach announces an alignment with Ocean Futures Society for one of the widest reaching educational and awareness campaigns for sea turtle conservation efforts by a developer. With news of Palm Beach County possessing one of the densest concentrations of turtle nests on the east coast, this initiative came at the height of nesting season just in time for awareness of next season. Leading an aggressive educational platform where Ritz-Carlton Residences will communicate as a call-to-action not only to building management, but more importantly, to condo residents in coastal high-rises across the east coast through a communications campaign.
A Cousteau blog on the The Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island website will begin in 2012 during turtle season. Singer Island—identified as an area of high mortality rates—is the starting point for a national model and strategy for coastal developments across the U.S. And The Ritz-Carlton Residences began the initiative. Lionheart Capital, owner of The Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island, reached out to Cousteau’s internationally renowned Ocean Futures Society to lead the campaign. Teaming up with Sea Turtle Conservancy, they outlined the most comprehensive and aggressive educational platform.
The Ritz-Carlton Residences Singer Island officially launched January 21st as one of only six standalone Ritz residential properties worldwide. Since it’s opening, developer Lionheart Capital reports over $45 million in sales and an international buyer profile. Residences range in price from $700,000 to over $10 million for penthouses.
The picturesque coastal town of Singer Island, named for the early 20th century developer Paris Singer, is nestled between the high-end shopping of Palm Beach Island, golfing of PGA, horse country in Wellington and skims the Gulf Stream ocean current, making it an excellent location for deep sea fishing and aquatic activities.
