Verdex Construction will begin construction of The Watermark at West Palm Beach in fall of 2020. This Class-AA, luxury senior living community is Verdex Construction’s first project for prestigious developer ZOM Living, which has created residential and senior living properties across the country. The eight-story, 245,416 sq. ft. building at 445 Datura Street in the heart of Downtown West Palm Beach will offer 154 residential units ranging from 360 sq. ft. to 1,380 sq. ft. Construction is expected to be complete in spring of 2022. The architect is MSA Architects.
“This project mirrors our recently completed Canopy hotel project, as both are several stories on very tight infill sites requiring greater expertise than open greenfield projects,” said Rex Kirby, President of Verdex Construction. “We’re excited to add to our growing list of projects that further the success of the West Palm Beach Downtown Business District.”
The units on the top four floors of The Watermark will offer independent living for seniors, with the third and fourth floor dedicated to assisted living. The second floor will house memory care. The project’s features and amenities include a commercial kitchen, bar, library, theater, beauty salon, exercise room, swimming pool, outdoor terraces, and a four-story parking garage with 119 spaces.
