Aging is inevitable, and for many, it signals the beginning of a new chapter - one where you cross off bucket list items and live life to the fullest, on your own terms. However, for some men, aging is a horrible prospect, filled with chronic fatigue, irritability, and inability to perform in the bedroom. If you're concerned about life in middle age and beyond, we've got great news: there are easy, proven steps that you can take to help stop the negative effect of aging.
Global Life Rejuvenation was founded to give men a new lease on life - one that includes less body fat, fewer mood swings, and more energy as you age.

These therapies for men are effective, safe, and customized to fit your goals, so you can keep loving life as you get older.
TRT, and growth hormone peptide therapies bridge the gap between your old life and the more vibrant, happier version of you.

Now, you have the tools to do so - backed by science and applied by our team of TRT and HRT experts with more than 13 years of experience.
For men, getting older comes with its perks, like living life on their own terms and not having to "sweat the small stuff" day in and day out. At the same time, there are aspects of aging that men dread, like hormonal changes. Yes, you read that right â men, not just women, go through hormonal changes as they age. For men, the biggest change involves a drop in testosterone.
Lower levels of testosterone can wreak havoc on a male's mind and body and when left untreated, can result in symptoms like:
Those symptoms are concerning, but with testosterone replacement therapy and anti-aging medicine, many males improve their quality of life with age. The good news is that TRT and anti-aging meds aren't only reserved for "old guys." In fact, there's no magic age at which men should start thinking about hormone replacement therapy. Everyone's body is different, so if you're experiencing the above conditions in your mid-30s, TRT could be a viable solution when you consult with a doctor.
Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men and plays an important role throughout the male lifespan. Most of a male's testosterone is produced through the testicles. Also called the male sex hormone, testosterone starts playing its part during puberty.
When a male goes through puberty, testosterone helps males develop:
As boys turn to men and men grow older, testosterone levels deplete naturally. Sometimes, events like injuries and chronic health conditions like diabetes can lower testosterone levels. Unfortunately, when a man loses too much T, it results in hypogonadism. When this happens, the testosterone must be replaced, or the male will suffer from symptoms like muscle loss, low libido, and even depression.
TRT is exactly what it sounds like: a treatment option for men that replaces testosterone so that your body regulates hormones properly and restores balance to your life. Also called androgen replacement therapy, TRT alleviates the symptoms that men experience with low T.
Originally lab-synthesized in 1935, testosterone has grown in popularity since it was produced. Today, TRT and other testosterone treatments are among the most popular prescriptions in the U.S.
Without getting too deep into the science, TRT works by giving your body the essential testosterone it needs to function correctly. As the primary androgen for both males and females, testosterone impacts many of the body's natural processes â especially those needed for overall health. For example, men with low T are more prone to serious problems like cardiovascular disease and even type-2 diabetes.
When your body quits making enough testosterone, it causes your health to suffer until a solution is presented. That's where TRT and anti-aging medicine for men can help. TRT helps balance your hormones and replenish your depleted testosterone. With time, your body will begin to heal, and many symptoms like low libido and irritability begin to diminish.
For men, aging is the biggest contributor to lower testosterone levels, though there are other causes like obesity, drug abuse, testicular injuries, and certain prescribed medications. Sometimes, long-term health conditions like AIDS, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disease can lower testosterone levels.
When a man's testosterone levels drop significantly, it alters his body's ratio of estrogen and testosterone. Lower testosterone levels cause more abdominal fat, which in turn results in increased aromatase, which converts even more testosterone into estrogen.
If you're concerned that you might have low T, you're not alone. Millions of men in the U.S. feel the same way. The best way to find out if your testosterone is low is to get your levels tested.
For sustainable testosterone replacement therapy benefits, you must consult with hormone doctors and experts like those you can find at Global Life Rejuvenation. That way, you can find the root cause of your hormone problems, and our team can craft a personalized HRT plan tailored to your needs.
Are you used to blasting through a productive day and accomplishing all your daily goals? Do you find yourself losing muscle mass and the craving to be intimate with your partner? Does your partner complain about how irritable you have become? If you're not usually a curmudgeon, your body could be giving you a sign. It could be time to speak with a doctor about TRT and anti-aging medicine for men in Palm Beach, FL.
If you're experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be battling against low testosterone:
One of the most common reasons that men choose TRT is because they have lost that "spark" with their partner. It's not easy for a man to hear that they're not performing like they used to. Intimacy is a powerful part of any relationship. When a once-healthy sex life dwindles, it can cause serious relationship issues.
The good news is that low libido doesn't have to be a permanent problem. TRT and anti-aging medicines help revert hormone levels back into their normal range. When this happens, many men have a more enjoyable life full of intimacy and sex drive.
Weak erections â it's an uncomfortable subject for many men in the U.S. to talk about. It's even worse to experience first-hand. You're in the midst of an intimate moment, and you can't do your part. Despite being perfectly normal, many men put blame and shame upon themselves when they can't achieve an erection. And while the inability to perform sexually can be caused by poor diet, obesity, and chronic health conditions, low testosterone is often a contributing factor.
Fortunately, weak erections are a treatable condition. The best way to regain your confidence and ability in bed is to speak with your doctor. Once any underlying conditions are discovered, options like TRT may be the best course of treatment.
Do you find it harder and harder to work out and lift weights in the gym? Are you having problems lifting heavy items that you once had no problem lifting?
Recent studies show that when men are inactive, they lose .5% of muscle strength every year, from ages 25 to 60. After 60, muscle loss doubles every decade. While some muscle loss is common as men age, a significant portion can be tied to low testosterone levels. When a man's T levels drop, so does his muscle mass.
Testosterone is a much-needed component used in gaining and retaining muscle mass. That's why many doctors prescribe TRT Palm Beach, FL, for men having problems with strength. One recent study found that men who increased their testosterone levels using TRT gained as much as 2.5 pounds of muscle mass.
Whether your gym performance is lacking, or you can't lift heavy items like you used to, don't blame it all on age. You could be suffering from hypogonadism.
If you're like millions of other men in their late 20s and 30s, dealing with hair loss is a reality you don't want to face. Closely related to testosterone decline and hormone imbalances, hair loss is distressing for many men. This common symptom is often related to a derivative of testosterone called DHT. Excess amounts of DHT cause hair follicles to halt their production, causing follicles to die.
Because hair located at the front and crown is more sensitive to DHT, it grows slower than other follicles and eventually stops growing permanently. Thankfully, TRT and anti-aging treatments for men in Palm Beach, FL, is now available to address hair loss for good.
While it's true that you can't change your genes, you can change the effects of low testosterone on your body. Whether you're suffering from thinning hair or hair loss across your entire head, TRT and other hormone therapies can stop hair loss and even reverse the process.
Also called "man boobs," gynecomastia is essentially the enlargement of male breast tissue. This increase in fatty tissue is often caused by hormonal imbalances and an increase in estrogen. For men, estrogen levels are elevated during andropause. Also called male menopause, andropause usually happens because of a lack of testosterone.
If you're a man between the ages of 40 and 55, and you're embarrassed by having large breasts, don't lose hope. TRT is a safe, effective way to eliminate the underlying cause of gynecomastia without invasive surgery. With a custom HRT and fitness program, you can bring your testosterone and estrogen levels back to normal before you know it.
Decreased energy was once considered a normal part of aging. Today, many doctors know better. Advances in technology and our understanding of testosterone show that low T and lack of energy often go hand-in-hand.
If you're struggling to enjoy activities like playing with your kids or hiking in a park due to lack of energy, it could be a sign of low T. Of course, getting tired is perfectly normal for any man. But if you're suffering from continual fatigue, a lack of enjoyment, or a decrease in energy, it might be time to speak with a doctor.
Whether you're having a tough time getting through your day or can't finish activities you used to love, TRT could help.
A study from 2011 showed that men who lose a week's worth of sleep can experience lowered testosterone levels â as much as 15%, according to experts. Additional research into the topic found almost 15% of workers only get five hours of sleep (or less) per night. These findings suggest that sleep loss negatively impacts T levels and wellbeing.
The bottom line is that men who have trouble sleeping often suffer from lower testosterone levels as a result. If you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day but toss and turn all night long, you might have low T.
TRT and anti-aging medicines can restore your T levels back to normal, which can help you sleep better with proper diet and exercise.
You're feeling down about everything, and there's no solid explanation for why you're in such a crummy mood. Your daily life is great and full of success, but you can't help but feel unexcited and unmotivated. If you're experiencing symptoms like these, you may be depressed â and it may stem from low testosterone.
A research study from Munich found that men with depression also commonly had low testosterone levels. This same study also found that depressed men had cortisol levels that were 67% higher than other men. Because higher cortisol levels lead to lower levels of testosterone, the chances of severe depression increase.
Depression is a very real disorder and should always be diagnosed and treated by your doctor. One treatment option gaining in popularity is TRT for depression. Studies show that when TRT is used to restore hormone levels, men enjoy a lighter, more improved mood. That's great news for men who are depressed and have not had success with other treatments like anti-depression medicines, which alter the brain's chemistry.
Ask anyone over the age of 50 how their memory is, and they'll tell you it wasn't what it used to be. Memory loss and lack of concentration occur naturally as we age â these aren't always signs of dementia or Alzheimer's.
However, what many men consider a symptom of age may be caused by low testosterone. A 2006 study found that males with low T levels performed poorly on cognitive skill tests. These results suggest that low testosterone may play a part in reducing cognitive ability. If you're having trouble staying on task or remembering what your schedule is for the day, it might not be due to your age. It might be because your testosterone levels are too low. If you're having trouble concentrating or remembering daily tasks, it could be time to talk to your doctor.
Why? The aforementioned study found that participating men experienced improved cognitive skills when using TRT.
Even though today's society is more inclusive of large people, few adults enjoy gaining weight as they age. Despite their best efforts, many men just can't shed the extra pounds around their midsections, increasing their risk of heart disease and cancer.
Often, male weight gain is caused by hormone imbalances that slow the metabolism and cause weight to pile on. This phase of life is called andropause and happens when there is a lack of testosterone in the body. Couple that with high cortisol levels, and you've got a recipe for flabby guts and double chins.
Fortunately, TRT treatments and physician-led weight loss programs can correct hormone imbalances and lead to healthy weight loss for men.
The benefits of hormone replacement therapy for men are numerous. TRT not only grants relief from low-T symptoms but can help give protection against age-related diseases. Additionally, doctors now recognize male testosterone as an important role in alleviating depression.
Some of the most exciting benefits of TRT can include:
Because men do not go through a specific period of hormonal changes like women do (called menopause), many doctors refer to "male menopause" as androgen decline. This is just another term for low testosterone, but like female menopause, the symptoms can be serious and affect your quality of life.
The best way to fight back against male menopause is with male HRT treatment from Global Life Rejuvenation. We provide the following HRT treatments for men:
Our treatment options are personalized for your body and are available as creams, gels, injectables, and implantable pellets. To find out if testosterone replacement therapy is safe for you, contact Global Life Rejuvenation today to schedule your comprehensive testing and anti-aging treatment consultation.
Growth hormone peptides are an innovative therapy that boosts the natural human growth hormone production in a person's body. These exciting treatment options help slow down the aging process and give you a chance at restoring your youth.
Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.
Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.
Benefits of Sermorelin include:
Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.
Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.
One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it is suitable for both men and women. It provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies, boosting patients' overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life. When growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland using Ipamorelin, clients report amazing benefits.
Some of those benefits include:
Whether you are considering our TRT services, HRT for women, or our growth hormone peptide services, we are here to help. The first step to turning back the hand of time starts by contacting Global Life Rejuvenation.
Our friendly, knowledgeable TRT and HRT experts can help answer your questions and walk you through our procedures. From there, we'll figure out which treatments are right for you. Before you know it, you'll be well on your way to looking and feeling better than you have in years!866-793-9933

Brightline tickets for the train's South Florida to Orlando route officially went on sale Wednesday morning with an initial purchase date of Friday, Sept. 1.
Officials are confident the intercity rail routes to Orlando will be ready by the Labor Day weekend. One-way and round-trip tickets between South Florida stations in Miami, Aventura, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Palm Beach and Orlando International Airport can be bought at gobrightline.com or by downloading the app.
Guests are being encouraged to sign up for Brightline emails on gobrightline.com to be the first to know when summer inaugural rides will go on sale, leading to speculation that a first ride between Orlando and South Florida may be possible sooner than Labor Day.

From Fun-Train to Brightline:The 25-year journey to Miami-Orlando service
What to know:Will Brightline stop at Disney Cruise Line at Port Canaveral?
“Brightline guests and the travel market have spoken loudly, and we want to respond by opening ticket sales from late summer through the beginning of next year,” said Patrick Goddard, president of Brightline. “While we are finalizing an official launch date, guests can now book travel for Labor Day, Halloween and holidays through the new year.”
Brightline is nearing the finishing phases of the service, first proposed more than a decade ago, that will link South Florida to Orlando with trains going up to 125 mph, making Brightline the fastest train operating in the southeast. Brightline estimates 35 million people travel between Central Florida and Miami each year.
The train line is trying to accomplish what others have attempted to do, both in Florida and elsewhere in the United States. Palm Beach Post reporter Kim Miller delved deep into Brightline's origins and where it wants to go. To read that story, go here.
Here is additional work taking place leading up to a Brightline service start date:
Rehabilitation work on St. Lucie River railroad bridge continues this month as Brightline completes that section of the span, one of the last major steps in completing the route to Orlando.
A three-week, round-the-clock shutdown of the 98-year-old bridge began May 1.
The bridge is scheduled to be closed until 6 a.m. on Monday, May 22. During this time, passage for any vessel needing an opening will be blocked. Overnight bridge closures will continue from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., May 22 to May 29. Crews are working 24/7 on the bridge to complete the work on time.
Brightline is continuing to test trains at high speeds, increasing up to 110 mph through the 129-mile corridor between West Palm Beach and Cocoa.
Upcoming tests in May are scheduled between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 4 along a 22-mile section of track, involving multiple railroad crossings through Martin and St. Lucie Counties.
Flaggers will be present at 14 of the railroad crossings between Midway Road/CR 712 and SR A1A where high speed testing will occur. Brightline is working with law enforcement agencies throughout the corridor.
High-speed testing up to 110 mph will continue in phases along the corridor over the coming weeks. The public is reminded to be vigilant around railroad tracks and follow the law around railroad crossings.
Brightline will continue to roll out qualifying trains between South Florida sites and Orlando that is a key step before a launch.
A qualifying train does not carry passengers and runs will provide Brightline locomotive engineers and conductors an opportunity to learn and navigate the new 168-mile stretch from West Palm Beach to Orlando.
Qualifying train runs help conductors and engineers familiarize themselves with the road crossings, signals, curves and speed restrictions, according to Brightline.
Once this additional work is completed, Brightline will go through a certification process by the Federal Railroad Administration, the regulatory agency, before service can begin.
Brightline's one-way fares from Miami to Orlando will start at $79 for Smart and $149 for Premium. Kids’ Smart one-way fares will start at $39. Smart fare bundles for families of four are available for less than $199 one way. A check of Brightline's app on Wednesday morning found that a one-way Smart ticket from West Palm Beach to Orlando on Sept. 1 will cost $79 while a Premium ticket will cost $149. The first train departs West Palm at 8:07 a.m. and is expected to arrive in Orlando at 10:15 a.m. Prices from Orlando to West Palm are the same.
Passengers can buy tickets at the stations, but they also can purchase them online. Discounted fares are available with two days advance purchase.

Service will include 16 daily roundtrips with hourly departures between Miami and Orlando.
The company also said it will continue a daily commuter schedule between Miami and West Palm Beach. The early morning departure will be at 5 a.m. from West Palm Beach with evening night departures until 12:45 a.m. out of Miami.
Brightline will link riders from Miami to Orlando in about three hours. Here is the estimated time from the South Florida stations:
Brightline will be the only passenger rail service to offer Starlink's high-speed, low-latency broadband service. Starlink, which is engineered and operated by SpaceX, offers cutting edge technology that will set the stage for a better connected passenger rail service.
Starlink delivers high-speed, low-latency internet to users all over the world and is made possible via the world’s largest constellation of highly advanced satellites operating in a low orbit around the Earth.
The internet service will be complementary for all Brightline guests.
To commemorate the beginning of the historic railway, Brightline officials are looking to recreate a "golden spike" event.
The golden spike was the final 17.6-karat gold final spike driven into the ground to unite the rails of the first transcontinental railroad across the United States on May 10, 1869.
Railways from the Central Pacific Railroad were linked to the Union Pacific Railroad at Promontory Summit, Utah Territory. The spike is now displayed in the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University.

SUNRISE — Throughout his tenure with the Florida Panthers, Sergei Bobrovsky has kept the same mentality, game in and game out. Regardless of how rocky the circumstances got at times.
The two-time Vezina Trophy winner has kept that same mentality through multiple rough patches in South Florida — ones where the seven-year, $70 million contract he signed with the Panthers in 2019 has been called one of the worst in the league — but he has not let it get to him.
After a regular season that saw him suffer through multiple stints of injuries and illness as well as temporarily losing the starting job at the beginning of the postseason to Alex Lyon, his mindset helped him settle back in and lead Florida to its first Eastern Conference Finals berth since 1996.
“It’s your life and you have to approach it one day at a time,” Bobrovsky told The Palm Beach Post. “You can’t think too far ahead of yourself or too far behind. I’m just trying to stay in the moment and do what the situation dictates. You don’t really think about wins or losses, it’s more about the process. You go with it, go with the flow, and see where you’re going.”
Bye bye Bruins:Panthers stun Bruins in OT in Game 7 to knock record-setting Boston out of Stanley Cup playoffs
Panthers under the radar:Panthers open Stanley Cup playoffs as hunter rather than the hunted
The rest of the team has echoed the exact words that Bobrovsky often says after games: “One game at a time.” And it has led them to one of the most improbable runs in Stanley Cup Playoffs history.
After entering the playoffs with the worst record of any team in the postseason, the Panthers took down the record-breaking Boston Bruins and high-powered Toronto Maple Leafs and now sit four wins away from the Stanley Cup Final.They open the best-of-seven conference finals Thursday night at Carolina.
Bobrovsky is arguably the reason they are there.
Since Florida started its historic run trailing 3-1 to the Bruins in the first round, Bobrovsky is 7-1-0 with a .928 save percentage and a 2.47 goals-against average.
He torched the Maple Leafs in the second round, going 4-1-0 with a .943 save percentage and a 1.89 goals-against average while allowing no more than two goals in each game.
“I think the story of Sergei Bobrovsky is how he goes into Game 5 (against Boston) and you almost need to fully appreciate the pressure that he is under in that game,” Panthers coach Paul Maurice said. “Alex Lyon has saved our season if you will, he’s been so good, but the weight of that game needed to be carried by (Bobrovsky). And he did.”
Bobrovsky stopped 44 of the 47 shots he faced – including a Brad Marchand breakaway in the dying seconds of regulation – to lead the Panthers to an overtime win to keep their season alive. He's kept on rolling from there.
“That was an unbelievable performance in the context of that,” Maurice said. “So then you get a glimpse of the man at his best. I think what you are seeing is a confident Sergei Bobrovsky. He’s not a reason, he is the reason we are winning. Not ‘Hey, your goaltending is not as good as the other team.’
"You play Tampa twice and Andrei Vasilevskiy is on a roll and you’re the guy on the other end of the rink who doesn’t feel as good. But Sergei knows that he’s come back in and every night he’s been the best goalie.”
Bobrovsky kept the Panthers alive multiple times during the Boston series with big saves in crucial moments. Once they secured arguably the biggest upset in NHL playoffs history, Bobrovsky was lights out against Toronto.
“It’s great to have a guy like that in the net. It gives you a lot of confidence,” captain Aleksander Barkov said. “You don’t want to have any breakdowns, but when those happen or they get a good chance to score, Bob is always there for us and gives us a chance to win every night.”
Bobrovsky is one of the first players on the ice and one of the last to leave the rink in an effort to help the team win. Even if it means lifting his goaltending partner up rather than himself.
When he fell ill in Toronto late in the regular season with the Panthers’ playoff hopes hanging by a thread, Bobrovsky sat down with Lyon and broke down the Maple Leafs' offense and what to look for.
Lyon stopped 38 of 40 shots to spark the six-game winning streak, which helped Florida clinch a spot in the postseason. And even when he was healthy enough to return with three games to go in the regular season, Bobrovsky stood by and supported his teammate any way he could.
“[Lyon] stepped into a tough situation,” Bobrovsky said. “He hasn’t played much this year and our season was on the line against one of the best teams in the league and he did a great job. He put the team on his shoulders and brought the team to the playoffs. It was a crucial time.
“I have also always had good relationships with the other goalie. I think it’s healthy and it’s good for the team and good for us because only the two of us know what the other is dealing with and we can only support each other and help each other to be reliable.”
Bobrovsky has kept that same kind of rapport with his partners of the past when they took over the bulk of the starts during his struggles over the last three seasons as well. Whether it was his usual partner, 22-year-old Spencer Knight or 2020-21 breakout and Seattle Expansion Draft pick Chris Driedger, he would put the same energy into helping them succeed.
“It’s more just the process talk,” Bobrovsky said. “You still have to play the game and trust your instincts. You don’t think about what the shooter is going to do. You read the game and you rely on your instincts. The talks are more about sharing the information: what you see, what you went through, and what you felt there.”
Through all of the bad times Bobrovsky has lived through with the Panthers, he has come out of it as grateful as ever. He is entering the first conference final of his 13-year NHL career playing at his best and he is ready for whatever the Hurricanes are going to throw at him.
“I am happy and fortunate that we are still alive,” Bobrovsky said. “There are only four teams still alive and I’m still playing hockey, so I’m happy with that. We beat two really strong teams and our journey still continues.”

Palm Beach Gardens’ newest luxury condos are like ‘homes in the sky’: Dan Catalfumo
Before sealing a $340 million construction deal, one Florida developer and New York investor didn’t know they were making Palm Beach business history.
"We didn't know it was going to be record-breaking, but we found out after the fact," Catalfumo Companies founder Dan Catalfumo told Fox News Digital. "Our team worked extremely hard. We had all hands on deck for the size of this loan."
Overlooking the Palm Beach Gardens intracoastal waterway sits a sprawling 11 acres that will be transformed into The Ritz-Carlton Residences’ newest luxury mid-rise condominiums.
New-York based Madison Realty Capital provided Catalfumo with a $340 million loan, the largest in Florida since the Federal Reserve began hiking interest rates, according to a press release.
SOUTH FLORIDA HEATS UP WITH ‘UNPRECEDENTED’ GROWTH, TRANSFORMS INTO ‘MOST DYNAMIC CITY IN THE WORLD’
"We have significant experience transacting in South Florida and will continue to look at projects with strong sponsors, strong pre-sales, and well-thought-out budgets," Josh Zegen, managing principal and co-founder of Madison Realty Capital, also told Fox News Digital. "There continues to be demand, but we are making sure we are picking the right projects that have had early success that can be delivered by experienced sponsors."
The developer detailed how these luxury condos set themselves apart from others in the area – panoramic balcony views, a private marina, putting green, park, 16 penthouses, massive infinity pool, and parking spots each equipped with EV chargers.
"I don't know if there's any more boxes that I can check," Catalfumo said. "It is so unique because they're really like homes in the sky because they're really not condominiums."
After opening sales in February, the luxury residential building is reportedly approaching $100 million in home sales. Each unit bid starts at $4 million, with an expected move-in date of Q3 2025.
Interested buyers come from demographics "all over the board," the developer noted.
"It's been people moving from older, large homes that are 20 to 25 years old and don't want to go through the renovation project, and then out-of-state buyers that are coming in and buying a brand-new product," Catalfumo explained.
The residential project lends itself "perfectly" to the office and business growth Palm Beach has had since the pandemic, the builder pointed out, as well as South Florida flourishing as the "Wall Street of the South."
"There really is no place for people to live that are CEOs or presidents, other than a handful of condominiums that are full. So they automatically gravitate to Palm Beach Gardens, which is the golf capital of the world. And for them, this is a brand-new building," Catalfumo said.
"New Yorkers and others from northern cities continue to migrate to Florida and expect higher quality living options than what has historically been available," Zegen added. "Working with The Ritz-Carlton will ensure that quality is met and appeals to full-time residents as well as those splitting time between Florida and northern cities."
Throughout this month, Catalfumo’s team will work to build the final marina docks and await the building’s sheet pile installation on May 16. But both the developer and lender look most forward to seeing families and "smiles on their faces" as they move into their new home.

"Literally every time we do a brand-new project and we have our grand opening, we have every customer come in and they just have smiles," Catalfumo said.
"We think the market has continued growth ahead," Zegen said, "so long as infrastructure, most importantly transportation and schools, can handle the influx of new residents."
