About

Azure Development

The principals of Azure Development have a passion for luxury home building and developing unique commercial properties. We’ve called South Florida our home for decades, raising our families in Boca Raton and Delray Beach, participating in local organizations and continually contributing to the positive growth of our community.

We understand that a home is more than just a place of residence; it is the foundation for everyday living and the essence of the lives we are lucky enough to enjoy here in South Florida. We are committed to continually discovering properties in ideal locations – close to the beach and downtown shopping, restaurants and entertainment – with incredible potential. It is our mission to create exquisitely designed and well-crafted homes with impeccable attention to detail that complement the landscape. Our signature homes are renowned for their exceptional composition, flawless finishes, sophisticated fixtures and superior craftsmanship.

Azure Development is celebrating the 70th birthday of our award-winning headquarters building located at 290 SE 6th Avenue in Delray Beach. Formerly an abandoned Chevrolet dealership that had been boarded up for years, Azure purchased the building and successfully renovated the 7,000-square-foot space while keeping the original character of the building, including its angled windows and original roof. In addition to recognition by the Delray Beach Historical society, we also received an award from the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation for its restoration.

 

We’re proud that our headquarters reflects our commitment to celebrating Delray Beach’s iconic past. It is an example of the quality and vision that goes into every single property we develop – and we encourage you to stop by and see us anytime!

We look forward to helping you realize your
dreams in our not-so-little slice of paradise!
