27 Aug Harbourside Place Wins ‘Project of the Year’ at 2015 Vision Awards
Jupiter, Fla. (August 27, 2015) — Harbourside Place, Jupiter’s multi-use project developed by Allied Capital and Development of South Florida, LLC, was named 2015 Vision Awards Project Winner at Urban Land Institute’s Southeast U.S. and Caribbean Awards ceremony, which was attended by nearly 700 guests at the JW Marriot Marquis in Miami on August 26th.
The mission of Urban Land Institute (ULI) is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining communities worldwide. In winning this prestigious award, Harbourside Place was recognized as carrying forth this mission as well as promoting economic and community development for the Town of Jupiter and greater Palm Beach County.
“What a great honor to have received this award from the Urban Land Institute of Southeast Florida/Caribbean,” said Nicholas A. Mastroianni II, President and CEO of Allied Capital and Development of South Florida, LLC, developers of Harbourside Place. “We look forward to Harbourside Place continuing to be a source of economic development for Jupiter and the surrounding areas in South Florida.”
Harbourside Place was envisioned in 2005 by Allied Capital and Development of South Florida, LLC, under the direction of Mastroianni II. The final site plan was pulled in 2008. With the economy in the midst of a recession, Mastroianni was driven to find alternative financing, thus introducing the company to an innovating, and then underutilized financing program known as EB-5. Construction began in late 2012, and the project team, consisting of Land Planner and Landscape Architect Gentile Glas Holloway O’Mahoney + Associates; Construction Manager, Moss & Associates; and architectural firm Leo A. Daly, celebrated the grand opening in the fall of 2014. “Harbourside Place has become the major destination venue for the Town of Jupiter,” said George Gentile, Partner of Gentile Glas Holloway O’Mahoney + Associates. “It’s an excellent example of creative land use that offers something for everyone to enjoy.”
