Stellar Homes Group broke ground for its Velero townhome development in the Sailboat Bend area of Fort Lauderdale.

Stellar is building four two-story townhomes in Sailboat Bend, located west of downtown Fort Lauderdale and north of the New River. Construction is scheduled for completion in summer.

European-style kitchens, two-car garages, balconies and Island Colonial architecture are among the design features of the Velero townhomes.

Each of the townhomes will have a private dock with deep-water access, and each corner home will have a private pool.

“We are excited about this innovative, attractive, and exciting new waterfront development in the shadows of downtown Fort Lauderdale,” John P. “Jack” Seiler, the city’s mayor, said in a press release. “The project is perfectly and conveniently situated in Sailboat Bend, enhances and improves the neighborhood experience, and promotes environmental awareness and protection.”
