West Palm Beach-based Verdex Construction says it has completed its first project — the High Ridge Landing apartment complex in Boynton Beach. Consisting of eight, three-story apartment buildings at 3609 High Ridge Way, the project was completed within a tight 12-month window for owner, Eastwind Development LLC.
“The market for new rental properties across South Florida is growing fast as our population increases, so completing projects on time and on budget brings extra value to developers,” Verdex president Rex Kirby said in a statement.
Verdex managed the construction of 184 walk-up, garden-style apartments on a nine-acre site. Since the complex is located next to Chancellor Charter School, Verdex says it ensured that communication with the school and other neighbors “was proactive, timely and thorough in order to mitigate any inconveniences caused by the construction,” the news release said.
“High Ridge Landing and Chancellor Charter School share an entrance, so we timed the installation of utilities under the roadway during the school’s holiday break in order to eliminate the impact on parent drop-off and pick-ups,” Kirby said. “We also staggered job site deliveries so as not to affect the school’s peak traffic hours. It’s this type of planning that builds community support and helped us to get the project completed on such a tight timeline.”
Other Verdex projects underway throughout South Florida include 1000 North, a Michael Jordan co-owned restaurant on the Loxahatchee River in Jupiter; Sabbia Beach Condominiums, a 19-story, 68 unit luxury residential tower in Pompano Beach; and the Turnpike Business Park, a light industrial office/warehouse facility project in suburban West Palm Beach.
