Two Additional Macken Projects, Parallel 1 and Parallel 2, Named as Finalists

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (May 22, 2018)—On Thursday, May 10th, Macken Companies, a vertically integrated real estate development, construction and brokerage firm, took home the coveted trophy at the City of Fort Lauderdale Community Appearance Awards for Beach House, the firm’s new single-family development in east Fort Lauderdale. Two other Macken Companies’ recently completed projects, Parallel 1 and Parallel 2 townhome communities, were named as finalists.

The City of Fort Lauderdale Community Appearance Awards are presented annually to celebrate properties that promote aesthetic value to the community and environmental preservation. The Community Appearance Board selects winning properties based on a site review of the project’s exterior, the structure and outdoor space, as well as how the project visually enhances the community.

Beach House was developed by Macken Companies, constructed by VCM Builders, and marketed and sold exclusively by Macken Realty. The luxury residential development features four two-story single-family homes featuring a contemporary-tropical design and open floor plan by Randall Stofft Architects. The sophisticated custom-designed kitchens include top-of-the-line appliances and open to a great room and dining area. The homes boast floor-to-ceiling glass, wine room, cabana bath, upstairs loft, elevated 12-foot ceilings, generous front porches, large second-floor terraces, a private pool, two-car garage and smart home technology.

Beach House is located on the corner of NE 26th Street and NE 32nd Avenue on the barrier island of Dolphin Isles between A1A and the Intracoastal. There is one more home available for sale. The final residence is available with three or four bedrooms.

Pricing starts at $1.575 million. Construction is underway with completion scheduled for the summer of 2018. For more information, call 954-617-8400 or visit
