The development, called Soleste Pompano Beach, is at 208 N. Federal Highway, between Northeast Fourth and Second streets, just a mile west of the beach. The South Miami-based company bought the 2-acre site in July for $9.8 million. 

Construction got underway last week. It’s unclear when the project will be delivered. A representative for Estate has yet to respond to a request for comment.

Pompano Beach, historically a working-class town, is getting a makeover, thanks to developers launching luxury condo projects following two years of skyrocketing residential prices in South Florida.

Last month, Fortune International Group and Oak Capital broke ground on a Ritz-Carlton-branded oceanfront development. Back in May, the Chetrit Group secured a $94 million construction loan for a 121-unit project at the northern end of the town’s barrier island. Related Group is also developing a pair of luxury condo projects along the ocean. 

As for Estate, the firm sold a rental property it developed in Miami’s Overtown neighborhood for $181 million last year.
