Seen in the foreground is Tarpon Island, a private island in Palm Beach that was sold last month to developer Todd Michael Glaser for $85 million. Glaser plans to demolish a portion of the existing residence on the island and build an 18,000-square-foot, two-story addition.

Just one of the most one of a kind items of house in Palm Beach front received approval on Wednesday for a significant makeover.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to take a developer’s designs to partially demolish and renovate a 1930s-era home on Tarpon Island, and establish an 18,000-square-foot, two-story addition next to it.

An ownership business controlled by developer Todd Michael Glaser purchased the 2.2-acre personal island and 12,321-sq.-foot property that sits on it for $85 million final month.

The sale set a new town sale-price tag record for a lakefront residence with no further ocean frontage, in accordance to gross sales documented at the Palm Beach County Courthouse.

Glaser and an expenditure group plan to renovate and broaden the existing dwelling there for resale.
