98 NW 5th Avenue

Delray Beach, FL

Located in an historic district of Delray Beach, a 7,000 SF two-story apartment building is repurposed for commercial use as a key project in a community redevelopment effort. The structure introduces flexible, adaptable space for retail, restaurant, and business enterprises. The first story features up to five bays of 700 SF each, while the second story is designed for coworking and/or independent office space. The coworking option offers common infrastructures, such as office equipment, utilities, receptionist, and parcel acceptance and custodial services.

The architectural character weds history with 21st-Century enhancements and amenities in a Masonry Modern style expressed in concrete walks and walls, topped by a light-reflecting silvery white metal roof. Other design details include a roofed balcony and stairways, marquees, awnings, and glass-fronted retail shops for pedestrian view. Colored in coastal blue, the building is complemented by native shade trees, landscaped streetscape, parallel parking, and an enclosed elevator tower for easy access between floors.
