Layers of Water By Studio Khora, An Architectural Gem, to be Completed in Late 2022

Pompano Beach, FL, October 11, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Exciting new construction, an architectural gem, to be completed in late 2022 on the most desirable dry lot in Harbor Beach, with over one-third acre of park-like grounds, lush vegetation, and peaceful serenity. A private beach club and marina are reached by a leisurely five-minute stroll from the house.

This contemporary residence, named Layers of Water, is designed by Studio Khora, top Fort Lauderdale architects, named a top 50 U.S. residential coastal architect by the prestigious Ocean Home Magazine.

The dramatic contemporary house, with its roof cantilever, filters the outdoors views while reflecting the natural surroundings in a stunning two-level waterfall. The façade design, with a double-floor glass curtain wall, creates a harmonious scale and balance between interior design and the mature landscaping outside.

Penna, KHORA Senior Designer, says, “The movement of falling water not only refreshes the outdoor temperature but also reflects the extraordinary views of the surrounding landscape and classical architecture, only found at Harbour Beach.” The contemporary architectural design, with few and small rear-facing windows, creates privacy yet welcomes the outdoors to all interior rooms. The combination of large and static design elements and passive views enhance contemplation.

On the first floor, a wrap-around pool embraces the master bedroom. As an option, two of the four additional en-suite bedrooms may be used as a home-gym or home-theater. The oversized garage offers generous accommodation for three cars, a golf cart, and a motorcycle. The three-car parking space can be doubled with the addition of car elevators due to the 11-feet, 10-inches ceiling height. The innovative hangar doors provide functional design freedom for the garage and add a high-tech contemporary style element.

South Coast Improvement, Co. Completes First Phase of 40B Affordable Housing Conversion Project at Serenity Brewster

Brewster, MA and Marion, MA, Aug 27, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- South Coast Improvement Company, a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently completed Phase 1 of a project to convert the former Wingate Residences assisted living and nursing facility into Serenity Brewster, rental housing for those ages 55 and over. The property, located at 873 Harwich Road (Route 124), is being developed by the Elevation Financial Group of Orlando, Florida.

Elevation purchased the property in December 2020 with the intent of converting the 119,016 square foot building into rental properties for people 55 and over. Phase 1 of the project featured the conversion of 41 rooms. South Coast Improvement Company completed that phase on July 1, 2021.

“The mission of creating affordable housing for seniors is embedded deep in our DNA. By bringing an outstanding Brewster property back to life through Elevation’s commitment to safe, clean and affordable housing, everyone wins,” Chris King, CEO of Elevation Financial Group.

The second phase of the project will convert the remainder of the 132 units planned for Serenity Brewster. Twenty percent of those units will be deed-restricted or 40B–double the required 10.

“Converting space in an assisted living facility is something we’ve had extensive experience with. This project is a little different than a lot of those as it is unoccupied and the conversion of the facility into housing involves a 40B,” said Tom Quinlan, president of South Coast Improvement Company. “We’re grateful to Elevation for the opportunity to work on this project and deliver it on time and under budget.”
