Boca Raton is one of the most desirable places to live in, not just in the state of Florida, but across the entire country. That is because it offers safety, upscale living, beautiful beaches, and some of the best real estate in the country. It also has an amazing culinary scene and its own luxury Town Center mall along with many other shopping boutiques. For those who own their own aircraft, you’ll be delighted to know that Boca is home to an international private airport. This city is also home to FAU and Lynn University, so your kids can get their degrees without having to go to another state or city far from home. As far as schooling is concerned, some of the best public schools are in Boca with “A” ratings from PreK to 12. There are also entertainment options for nightlife at Mizner Park where there are concerts, a museum of art, an IPIC movie theater, and a ton of stores and restaurants.
Overall, Boca is known for its impeccable cleanliness, low crime rate, and some of the most beautiful gated communities. Boca already had some well-known communities like The Oaks and Woodfield Country Club and many others. However, these communities were built some time ago and may not be ideal for someone who is looking for something fresh and modern. Well, the good news is that there have been some new construction communities and condos built out and some are still in the pre-construction phase. In this article, we will cover all the latest new communities that are available and a detailed report on what they offer.
Lotus and Lotus Palm: A Modern Luxury Living Experience
GL Homes is a developer you’ll hear quite a lot of in Palm Beach County because they do fantastic work and are responsible for lots of communities in this area. Their latest project is Lotus and Lotus Palm, which are high-end modern luxury communities. Lotus Palm is the same community, but Lotus was built out first and Lotus Palm is a continuation of it in a different location close by. The models available and all the amenities are identical, so there is pretty much one community.
These communities have some of the best-looking homes in Boca which offer both modern and transitional styles of homes. The communities are gated with 24/7 security and the gate is solid concrete all around with entrance only through the gate. Inside the community, you’ll see well-kept ground with lots of lush grass and trees throughout. What makes these communities really stand out besides the new modern homes is they offer resort-style amenities and upscale living without a country club price tag.
Lotus, the first of the two, was started back in 2019 and is still being built to this day. However, most of them have been resales due to their popularity. Lotus Palm just started opening to the public and is currently selling lots for soon-to-be-built homes, so if you’re looking for full customization of a luxury home, this is the community for you.
There are about 805 single-family homes and even more are coming with the additional development of Lotus Palm. Lots are selling very fast, so only a few spaces are still available if you’re in the market to customize your new home.
Speaking of homes, Lotus has some of the most amazing ones in the entire region, these homes have the perfect blend of luxury, modern design, and comfort. Most Homes are between 1800 to about 6,000 square feet and are priced between $900s to about $2 million. Inside the homes, you can expect modern designs with large open floor plans, gourmet kitchens, and spacious bedrooms. There are also lots of extra rooms like office, den and entertainment rooms. As far as outside of the home there are infinity private pools, covered patios with grill areas, and beautiful landscaped gardens.

Royal Palm Polo: A Hidden Gem in Boca Raton
Royal Palm is a hidden gem when we discuss luxury gated single-family home communities. Although you’ve probably heard a ton about GL Homes Lotus and Boca Bridges when it comes to new construction home communities, Royal Palm is another one you should absolutely check out. From the beautiful landscaping throughout the community, to the most elegant large estate homes, Royal Palm offers some of the finest real estate in the city. Another big plus of this community. It is located on the east side of Boca making it closer to the beach and downtown areas of both Boca and Delray.
The community was built on the acres of land formerly used as polo grounds, hence the earned name of Royal Palm Polo. This community is built by Toll Brothers and it is one of the few new construction communities in the east Boca area in quite some time. As mentioned before, inside the community, it is a very lush environment of waterfalls, professionally landscaped surrounding, and the Residents Club which is the central hub of the community.
Royal Palm offers a few different models and designs, each with its own unique luxurious features. The homes are sitting on oversized lots and are not wall-to-wall to each other like other nearby communities. That is why you’ll see many homes with large pools and amazing backyard spaces with fully equipped outdoor kitchens and magnificent gardens. The homes range in size from 3,600 square feet to over 7,000 square feet, featuring two-story living rooms, modern archways, curved staircases, and much more.
The amenities at Royal Palm Polo cater to a variety of lifestyles:
Infinity pool and spa
Children’s splash pad
Six Har-Tru clay tennis courts

Also, the community has a 5,000 square foot clubhouse, which goes to show you the community is more than just well crafted single-family homes. The clubhouse features an infinity pool and spa, a children’s splash pad, six Har-Tru clay tennis courts, a recreational complex, social rooms, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
Royal Palm Polo definitely should be on your list when shopping for new homes in Boca. Although there are many larger communities in Boca, however, Royal Palm has an energy of its own and is located in a great place so make sure to have it on your list.
