JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- LandSouth Construction, a Jacksonville, Fla. based general contractor specializing in multifamily, senior housing and mixed use developments, has begun construction on 500 Ocean, a $49 million mixed-use apartment community in Boynton Beach, Fla.
A six-story building on 4.7 acres will connect the 341 luxury apartment homes with a parking garage, clubhouse, pool, retail and office space as well as other convenient resort style amenities.
Award winning LeCesse Development Corp. of Altamonte Springs, Fla. is developing 500 Ocean Apartments. The project is being designed by MSA Architects of Miami, Fla. and is scheduled to be completed by April 2017.
“500 Ocean Apartments is true upscale Florida living with spectacular views, resort style amenities, a public transportation stop, nearby beach access, retail, office and restaurants planned,” said LandSouth’s Vice President of Operations Joe Passkiewicz. “The project is in-line with the City’s overall development plans for Ocean Avenue as a shopping and dining district. The site has been vacant for many years, waiting on a developer with a vision, like LeCesse.”
The Tuscan/Mediterranean style structure with an urban streetscape is located under one mile from the beach. Eleven unique, generous one bedroom, one bedroom with den, two bedroom and three bedroom floor plans will be offered ranging from 747 to 1,306 square feet.
Additionally, all residences enjoy a large balcony, many of which will have scenic Intracoastal and ocean views.
The spacious, open floor plans are designed with high quality finishes including designer kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 36-inch custom cabinetry, nine-foot ceilings, granite tops, luxury vinyl plank and porcelain tile floors, large walk-in bedroom closets, and sound-engineered resident separation walls.
Amenities will include an elaborate clubhouse, fitness center, club room, theater room, bowling center, private dining room, cyber café/game room, lounge, summer kitchen and two private courtyards complete with lush landscaping and an expansive pool.
“It’s very rewarding to see how quickly Ocean Avenue is becoming a vibrant neighborhood,” noted LandSouth Construction President/CEO James Pyle. “With the addition of luxury apartment living, retail, state-of-the-art offices, cafes and outdoor social spaces, we’re helping bringing the vision for a walkable, transit-rich urban village to full fruition with the mixed use development.”
LandSouth Construction is currently working on projects throughout the Southeast including apartments and mixed use developments in Delray Beach, Oviedo, Sanford, Jacksonville and Orlando Fla., Mt. Pleasant, S.C, Collegedale, Tenn. and senior housing in Bonita Springs, Fla. In its 16 year history, LandSouth Construction has completed more than 11,000 multifamily units, including apartments, senior living, condominiums, and townhomes.
