Celebrating a Milestone for Downtown Delray’s First New Luxury Condominiums in 10 Years
On November 2nd, a groundbreaking ceremony was held at 111 First Delray, the first new luxury residences in Downtown Delray Beach in over a decade. At the gala event, hard hats, golden shovels, and construction equipment surrounded dignitaries of the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, developers, and city officials as they marked a milestone in local history.
Delray Mayor Cary Goldstein and Felipe Vergara of Sofa Partners spoke to the crowd, along with Vin Nolan, Executive Director of the Delray Chamber of Commerce. Working with the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce for the occasion, the developers, and Nestler Poletto Sotheby’s International Realty sales team hosted realtors as well as community and business leaders at the sales center for a delicious brunch after the groundbreaking ceremony event, where Vice-Mayor Jim Chard was the guest speaker.
”We are pleased to have started construction and anticipate completion in early 2019, as the season begins,” said Developer Felipe Vergara. “This luxury condominium will provide a unique product and lifestyle, unmatched in the marketplace, all set in the center of this vibrant neighborhood.”
The property, located at 111 SE 1st Avenue, one block south of famed Atlantic Avenue, sits on a 1.12-acre parcel and will bring contemporary urban living to downtown Delray Beach. The 70-unit condominium gives residents access to modern design and upscale appeal with floor plans ranging from one, two, and three-bedroom units. All units include luxurious standard features such as Bosch appliances, wood-look Spanish porcelain plank flooring, quartz countertops, the latest smart-home technology and security, private balconies (select units offer private roof decks with 360-degree views), lightning fast internet speeds and private storage space.
Lifestyle amenities are impressive, ranging from a 5th-floor, state-of-the-art gym overlooking the pool to the beautifully landscaped recreation and pool deck featuring poolside cabanas, a covered, open-air lounge area with poolside summer kitchen, bar, televisions and billiards table. Additional features include private gated parking, secure bicycle storage, electric car charging stations, pet-friendliness, low HOA fees and more.
“SOFA” refers to the two blocks south of Atlantic Avenue from Federal Highway to Swinton Avenue. The district is undergoing a renaissance and Atlantic Avenue is at the forefront with its burgeoning reputation as an arts and entertainment hub. Due to its convenient location, 111 First Delray residents will be able to take a short relaxing stroll to enjoy the many delights Delray Beach is famous for such as award-winning cafes and restaurants, unique art galleries, entertainment venues, boutiques, and of course, the crystal-clear Atlantic Ocean with one of the premier beaches in Florida.
Priced from the $400,000s, 111 First Delray is selling at an unprecedented rate and prices are expected to rise after this groundbreaking. There has never been a better time to lay claim to the ultimate Delray-Centric lifestyle at 111 First Delray.
