Architect Enrique Norten


On a pristine stretch of white sand dunes and sea grapes, an architectural marvel has risen. 2000 Ocean, by Enrique Norten – TEN Arquitectos, conceived as a private residential enclave, is highly sophisticated and offers not only an elevated landscape, but an elevated life.

Located just north of South Florida’s Golden Beach, this contemporary, 38-story glass tower showcases panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, and surrounding endless sandy beaches. Proudly positioned on the beach, and closer to the ocean than any of its neighbors, it is bathed with sunlight from sunrise to sunset. 64 families will have the privilege to call 2000 Ocean, a property that signifies prestige and quality, their home. Adding beauty and opulence to the Atlantic coastline, there is truly nothing else like it.

oceanfront horizon line with the dramatic skyline of
the city. At the heart of this intersection is a lush,
unexpected landscape”
