Panther National, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

Being unveiled late this year within the private high-end community of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. is the first modern, luxury South Florida golf course community of its kind. The development will be dotted with 218 custom estates designed by acclaimed environmentalist architect Max Strang, next to a Jack Nicklaus-crafted golf course.

Surrounding the development is the 2,400-acre preserve Avenir Conservation Area, which serves as a wildlife corridor linking a number of natural preserves extending from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Okeechobee.

Set aside as a preserve by the Avenir community, it’s undergoing a restoration that will bring back historical native Florida ecosystems. “Panther National’s vision puts environmental sustainability at the forefront of everything we do,” says Dominik Senn, founder and president of Panther National. “We’ve found many of our buyers appreciate this close proximity to nature, and consider the bordering conservation area a key selling point of the Panther National Community.”
