Developers have built 5 house models for a total of 35 houses at Coronado Estates development near Boca Raton, FL in the Mediterranean-Mizner Style, which Stephanie Ferrell has written extensively about. Please see their portfolio for this and proposed townhouse designs ready for development.
We have many preservation development projects as well. Stephanie Ferrell was preservation architect for much of historic Ybor City (Tampa), and two of Miami’s most famous South Beach Art Deco hotels; the “Hotel Victor”, right next door to the late Gianni Versace’s Mansion and another on the same boulevard by the name of “Ocean Spray”. One of their most interesting preservation projects is in Tampa’s Channel district. This design is the conversion of a 20,000 square foot 1920’s brick warehouse building into 17 residential two level loft apartments, plus a restaurant.
Their largest in-progress residence is 21,000 square foot 5 acre compound, in West Palm Beach, FL for a hotel magnet. One of their largest residences (10,000 sq. ft.), is one block south of the Boca Raton Resort Hotel and Club, in Boca Raton, Florida, in the popular traditional Medici-style courtyard palazzo. This Palazzo was a “Designer Showcase House” with Caroline Silvertand, Carol Korn, Breco, Gausmel, and other designers.
