Delray Beach, Fla.—New Century Cos. of Boca Raton and Monogram Residential of Plano, Texas, have broken ground on UPtown Delray, a $26 million mixed-use development in Delray Beach, Fla. The project will include 146 residential units in two buildings connected by a pedestrian bridge.

One building will be apartments over a parking structure, while the other will be mixed-use with retail and office space as well as apartments. The project is a structural concrete building with extensive use of glass and metal accents, and featuring private balconies and terraces.

Common amenities will include a third-floor pool and amenity deck with a clubroom that opens to an outdoor entertaining area with refreshment seating, grilling areas, a water wall fountain, tropical gardens and private terraces. The property will also feature a gym, gaming room, coffee bar, cyber café, conference meeting room and gated parking.

UPtown Delray is located in Delray Beach’s business district at the corner of Federal Highway and S.E. 2nd St., a place that’s “Very Walkable,” according to the organization Walk Score. The property will feature studios and one- and two-bedroom, two-bath apartment units, and include some lofts. It’s slated for completion by September 2016.

The architectural firm Slattery and Associates, which is based in Boca Raton, designed UPtown Delray. LandSouth Construction, a Jacksonville-based general contractor specializing in multifamily and seniors housing, is building it.
