New Construction: Flo Delray Beach | New Workforce Housing Coming To Delray

new construction delray beach

At a time when moving to Delray Beach seems to be on everyone's mind, it has become more and more difficult for locals to find affordable housing. It's a frustrating prospect for many trying to get by, seeing corporations, multiunit ownership groups, and out-of-state millionaires buying up otherwise affordable property and driving costs up. To alleviate (some) of the extant concerns, especially those centered around soaring rent prices, the Rochemont Group has proposed and will be breaking ground for a new multi-family development, entitled Flo Delray. 

The Rochemont Group Breaks Ground In Delray

Father-son developers Pierre and Richard Rochemont have embarked on one of their first projects in Delray Beach. Plans for Flo Delray include 116 new units, with 23 specifically designated for workforce housing. To qualify for workforce designation, residents must (as of this writing) have an annual income between 50% and 120% of the local median. This means any household with a collective income above $116,880 per year will be disqualified.

It is important to know the difference between workforce housing and affordable housing built for low-income families. Workforce housing, in general is targeting middle-class workers, especially those in community-oriented roles such as teachers, first-responders, and medical professionals. For workers interested in applying to live in workforce units, stay in touch with the Delray Beach Neighborhood Services Division, who support the housing needs of both low-income and workforce-qualified individuals.

What We Know About Flo

Flo Delray will include 1 to 3 bedroom units, and feature projected amenities such as a pool area, sundeck, fitness center, pilates studio, game room, gym, and half-court basketball. The development will take place on the northwest corner of Atlantic Avenue and Military Trail, just north of Kings Point providing ample access to Downtown Delray Beach, the beautiful beachfront, and all major highways and thoroughfares. The site will cross 4.8 acres, and border a prominent shopping center, while providing access to the Delray Square Publix Plaza directly across the street. Directly to the south across Atlantic Avenue is a Sprouts Farmers Market and additional retail necessities. The location, beyond simply resting on a major crossroads, is conducive to simplifying living through the direct access to several key grocers, shops, and medical offices. As of the most recent press releases, groundbreaking is expected at the end of 2024.

We will continue to update this blog as more information flows (no pun intended) in regarding this project. In the meantime, visit our Real Estate News page for local updates and insights!
