New York-based developer Savanna has announced a new partnership with the José Andrés Group at Olara, the most anticipated new luxury residential condominium on West Palm Beach’s waterfront. Renowned Chef José Andrés will bring his first new restaurant concept in the Palm Beaches to Olara, which will be open to the public to enjoy. Additionally, residents of Olara will have access to exclusive culinary services, including food and beverage provisions throughout the tower’s amenity spaces and private, in-residence dining.
