Construction Tour: $950M in projects rise in Downtown Delray Beach

Master-planned community of 759 new homes, retail, office space proposed for Delray

A multi-developer proposal is calling for 759 new homes in a master-planned community off Congress Avenue in Delray Beach.

The yet-unnamed proposal, which also includes office, retail and restaurant space, is expected to be discussed by city commissioners in November or December, according to several sources.

It would be developed by 13th Floor Investments, Key International, CDS International Holdings and New Urban Communities.

“The goal is to create a world-class, vibrant community where people can live, work, play, and shop, as well as bring about much-needed change to Congress Avenue,” said Arnaud Karsenti, managing principal of 13th Floor Investments, in an email statement.

Destination Guide: South Florida Water and Wealth

Getting to know South Florida means wrapping your brain around a roughly 250-mile stretch devoted to sun and surf, and all the pastimes that go with them. From the island city of Key West to the country-club-filled municipalities of northern Palm Beach County, people more or less live to golf, play tennis, go boating, fishing or Jet Skiing, or simply indulge in a midday siesta.

Add in the nightlife, the dining and the increasingly multicultural flavor of the region — with a particular emphasis on all things Latin — and you have a prime spot for second-home buyers, retirees or those just seeking a respite from cold.
