El Solano, the Palm Beach estate once owned by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, has hit the market for a whopping $47.5 million. Lennon bought the house in January 1980, and spent the winter living there. He was killed in December of that year. After proceeding with the home renovation she and Lennon planned together, Ono eventually sold it in 1986.
The Big Bubble recently took a ride on the Brightline, the new-fangled high speed train running between Miami and Palm Beach. Going from Miami to West Palm took about an hour and fifteen minutes, and was a comfortable ride through the urban cores of three counties.

The Related Companies, the New York-based developer of the massive Hudson Yards in New York, and sister company to the Related Group, that Miami-based megadeveloper, is bringing a few substantial new projects to Downtown West Palm Beach. On May 16th the Related Companies broke ground on 360 Rosemary, an upscale office building adjacent to the Virgin train station, and concurrently to that they announced 575 Rosemary, a mixed use tower, and One Flagler, another office building, heading for the area.

This home and studio, located in Phipp's Plaza, a residential and commercial plaza with central green space in the center of Palm Beach, is the home and studio of modern-day interior designer Scott Snyder, and was the home and studio of Marion Sims Wyeth, an architect who designed many notable projects around South Florida in the freewheeling 1920s.
The stately and historic Casa del Ensuenos in Palm Beach, designed by that narrow strip of money's most iconic architect, Addison Mizner, is on the market asking a generous $32.5 million. Curbed wrote something about it last week. Apparently the name probably means 'house of the dreams,' but more importantly, it's a Mizner! A good Mizner is worth its weight in Manolo Blahniks, and this one's a real gem.
Built in 2015, the rambling oceanfront pile at 1071 N. Ocean Boulevard in Palm Bech clocks in at a very impressive 35,000 square feet of barrel-tile-roofed wings, vaulted galleries, stately rooms, and grand staircases. The circular driveway is the size of a town square or a proper cour d'honnour of a great chateau in the south of France—of which the Mediterranean style of this place does its best to emulate.
At the dawn of the new year, just nine days ago, this extensively renovated Palm Beach regency-style property, hit the market for an eye-watering $17.8 million. Originally built in 1970, every inch of the house looks like it's brand-spankin' new, decorated gorgeously, to the umpteenth degree. It's listed by Christopher Leavitt, one of the brokers on the short-lived reality show Million Dollar Listing Miami (boy that feels like a million years ago), which explains what he's doing with his time these days. He must have absconded from Miami. Zillow says most of his listings are that-a-way.
