Construction will begin this month on two buildings called Santorini – the last residential phase of Congress Avenue’s Renaissance Commons.
Santorini, which will be built by Verdex Construction, will have 226 luxury units in two 6-story buildings. Residents will have a 325-space parking garage, according to a news release from Verdex.
The apartment complex is the seventh and final residential project in Renaissance Commons, Jim Comparato, president of developer Compson Associates, told The Palm Beach Post in January 2015. It will be a “mirror image” of Compson Place apartments, he said, because those did so well.
Construction is expected to be finished in June 2017.
The area now called Santorini was originally planned to be part of the Monteverde condo development. The city approved Monteverde in 2004 as four condo towers; two on each side of an internal driveway. The two on the south side were built. But the two on the north side weren’t, until now.
