Delray Beach, Florida, has been eyed as a hot spot for new development, thanks to its natural beauty and its serene, yet cultured way of life. Within the past few months, the city has seen projects such as the Atlantic Crossing shopping district, Shop Delray, and IPic Delray Beach begin construction. Enterprising trend seekers are keeping their eye out for these projects, and are already deciding which ones will be their go-to for arts, dining, and entertainment in the city. See what’s already here and what’s being built below.

Delray City Market

Slated for a Fall of 2019 opening, this 30,000 square foot area offers a new concept in the world of dining: a food hall. Originating in Europe, a food hall serves as a location where independent restaurants, suppliers, and chefs are found under one roof, to the convenience of the shopper. With 30 storefronts, the gastronomes of Third Avenue will have plenty to choose from, all the while supporting their favorite local farms. Keep an eye out for small businesses that make their own cheese, suppliers offering deli meat they’ve harvested, and local farmers selling their own produce.

Ipic Delray Beach

Movies just got a whole lot better. Having opened this past spring, this theater provides the ultimate in luxury, with large, plush seats, a gourmet menu, and the hottest in new releases, indie flicks, and classic films. That menu deserves a special mention – the team at IPic works to make each dish unique, combining the best of pub food with a gastronomic twist. The result? Red shrimp tacos with crème fraiche and red morita chile, spicy tuna on crispy rice, and popcorn flavors that are switched out every day. A potential rooftop restaurant serves to elevate the ‘dinner and a movie’ experience and place diners/moviegoers right above the action. Make your next night a girls’ night out with a rom-com and keto-friendly cocktails, or take date night to the next level with a red velvet cake and a drama flick.

Tin Roof

This southern-inspired dining and live music venue has already been turning heads and perking ears up, both with its tunes and its tastes. Their lineup consists of a healthy mix of local bands, tribute groups, and big names. A consistent list of events and theme nights consistently draws in a crowd searching out a good time. Make sure to try the candy pig mac & cheese, smothered with aged cheddar and brown sugar bacon, or the chicken n waffles plate. It’s the perfect complement to the music.

Ocean Delray

Ocean Delray is home to the residences that Delray Beach has been waiting for with bated breath. With an exterior by the renowned Stofft Architects firm and interiors done by Stofft-Ikasu Design, residences hold a delicate balance of contemporary and natural elements, forged with natural wood and stone elements and a light/dark contrast color palette. One major appeal of these oceanfront residences are that they’re the closest that homeowners can get to living on the beach at Delray. The city and county’s housing regulations ensure that Florida’s wild beauty can be protected, but tend to prevent homeowners from owning their spot on the sand. Ocean Delray offers these buyers the chance to enjoy the sound of waves crashing onto the beach, the smell of salt air, and the beauty of the waterfront from the comfort of their home.

Situated on the soft sand beaches of Delray Beach, Florida, local architect, Randall Stofft is designing the first luxury mid-rise residential oceanfront residences in the area. Enjoy luxurious floor plans as you hear the ocean waves rush onto the shore. Located directly on the Atlantic Ocean and within walking distance of the famed Atlantic Ave with upscale shops, fine restaurants, nighttime entertainment and, of course, the incomparable beauty of nearly two miles of award-winning beaches.

Ocean Delray is Delray Beach’s most exciting and exclusive new oceanfront development in 30 years. The nineteen highly-appointed, 3 bedroom plus den to 4 bedroom plus den residences will range from approximately 3,300 square feet to more than 4,400 square feet – and rival any single-family home anywhere in South Florida. Prices start at $5 million. Groundbreaking is scheduled for summer of 2019. Completion is projected for late 2020. The project, designed by architect Randall Stofft, is being co-developed by NRIA and US Construction with exclusive representation by IMI Worldwide Properties. Currently, reservations are by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, interested buyers can contact (800) 793-9783.
