Brian Grossberg and Richard Caster put the “L” in Luxury homes for buyers in Delray Beach. Their high-end residential and commercial projects have not only won awards from architectural and historical agencies, but they’ve also won accolades in the court of public opinion.
“We have 12 active projects right now – 11 homes and a commercial project. Everyone wants to live in Delray Beach because of its charm and walkable lifestyle,” said Brian Grossberg, co-owner of Azure Development.
Grossberg not only grew up in a family in the real estate industry, but his history is one of legends.
He was an Investment Professional at GE Equity (the private equity arm of General Electric), served on the Board of Directors of numerous companies and the Advisory Board of several venture capital firms. He also consulted on mergers and acquisitions and worked in Real Estate Tax Consulting for Price Waterhouse in Atlanta. He has an MBA from Duke University, where he graduated second in his class and was a Fuqua Scholar.
Both Caster and Grossberg have 40 years of combined experience creating custom homes and commercial buildings that stand out for their bravado and beauty. They are currently finishing up two courtyard homes on NE 7th Avenue (215 and 219) that combine modernity and unparalleled luxury. Each home has a private gated motor court, large wrap-around private pool, ethereal garden, 12-foot ceilings, all glass entry, natural stone and Zen sensibility. Homes are 5,366-total-square-feet.
“Azure is creating an oasis setting in downtown Delray Beach. We use lush landscaping and are known for exceptional design, flawless finishes, sophisticated fixtures and superior craftsmanship all within walking distance to downtown Delray,” adds Grossberg.
Their word is their legend. You know that’s true by the awards that keep piling up on their namesake. Two townhome projects, Delray Modern East and Delray Modern Intracoastal, received the Design Excellence Award of Honor from the Palm Beach Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Both of these projects were designed in collaboration with architect Jeffrey Silberstein.
