Highland Beach experienced a condo building boom during the 1980's with several new buildings erected along the coastline. A Canadian developer built Villa Nova and Villa Magna which at the time were some of the most exclusive condo buildings on Highland Beach. When Boca Highlands Beach Club and Marina was built in the early 1980's, it was the first of it's kind, offering residents a beachfront club and pool area.  Even today, it's one of only three communities in Highland Beach that has a private beach club.
