FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Ft. Lauderdale real estate developer, Stellar Homes Group, is proud to announce its new development, Velero, which has officially broken ground in historic Sailboat Bend. The partners of Stellar Homes Group hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at Velero's future site with the Mayor of Ft. Lauderdale and members of Greater Fort Lauderdale Realtors.
"We are excited about this innovative, attractive, and exciting new waterfront development in the shadows of downtown Fort Lauderdale," said John P. "Jack" Seiler, Mayor of the City of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. "The project is perfectly and conveniently situated in Sailboat Bend, enhances and improves the neighborhood experience, and promotes environmental awareness and protection."
The new, environmentally sustainable waterfront project will include four 2-story luxury townhomes, each complete with incredible amenities and designer finishes. The Island Colonial-style architecture was designed to maintain the historical feel of Sailboat Bend, Ft. Lauderdale's only residential historic district. In addition, Stellar Homes Group is building Velero using eco-friendly construction practices and materials such as LEED certified metal roofs, Green Logic paint, LED recessed lighting packages, and more.
"We are very excited on the groundbreaking of Velero and proud to offer these waterfront luxury townhomes with a sensitivity to the environment and the historic nature of Sailboat Bend," said Larry Baum, Managing Partner of Stellar Homes Group. "Velero is a truly unique place to live."
European style kitchens, two-car garages, and balconies are just some of the features that future Velero residents will enjoy. Velero's prime location on the edge of the New River near Downtown Ft. Lauderdale and the heart of the blossoming art district is a significant driving factor for buyers. Velero residents will have the option of enjoying a peaceful night on the water or enjoying the many dining, arts, and entertainment activities that Ft. Lauderdale is so well known for.
Buyers looking to bask in the South Florida waterfront lifestyle will find that Velero is a perfect for them. Each of the townhomes has a private dock with deep-water access, and the corner homes each have a private pool. Stellar Homes Group is planning to have Velero certified by The Florida Green Building Coalition.
The project is expected to be finished by Summer 2016.
Additional information about Velero can be found on the website, which features floor plans, renderings of the townhomes, and updates as construction of the community progresses. Residents of Velero will relish the urban outdoor lifestyle – the best of what South Florida has to offer!
