Veranda - Plantation, Florida

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION

    2018 Architecture MasterPrize™ Award winning project

    12-acre mixed use project with approximately 400 residential units and 45,000 square feet of retail. The project is located within Plantation Midtown District encouraging Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND). This project was the first to be constructed under the City’s new vision for the year 2020.

    Walkable streets traverse this pedestrian friendly mixed-use development, designed to inspire the residents to stroll rather than drive and to provide multiple opportunities for social interaction.

    Landscape Design Workshop organized the development around an ‘urban lake’. The seawall edge of the lake forms the central core of the pedestrian circulation system, serving both as a destination and a connection point between the residential and retail components of the project.

    View Site Plan

    A lush tropical courtyard forms the social hub of the residential component. The 6-story building wraps around an interior courtyard featuring a lagoon-like swimming pool with a beach entry. The shopping center provides a mix of restaurants, service providers and local retailers.

    This mixed-use project blends seamlessly residential and retail components while highlighting walkable streets for pedestrian use and communal spaces for social interaction.
