Construction on a $26 million mixed-use apartment community in Delray Beach has reportedly begun.

Jacksonville Beach-based LandSouth Construction is the contractor on the project, which will have 146 apartments totaling more than 338,000 square feet, according to published reports.

“This contemporary urban project has two buildings connected by a pedestrian bridge,” Joe Passkiewicz, vice president of operations for LandSouth Construction, said in a South Florida Business Journal article. “One building will be apartments over a parking structure. The other is mixed-use with retail and office space as well as apartments. The project is a structural concrete building with extensive use of glass and metal accents with private balconies and terraces.”

New Century Cos. of Boca Raton and Monogram Residential of Plano, Texas are developing the project. The architect is Slattery & Associates Architects Planners of Boca Raton, the South Florida Business Journal reported. Uptown Delray is expected to be complete by September 2016.
