The Congress Commerce Center was conceived with the goal of designing and developing a mixed industrial/retail park that would meld into the urban fabric of the city, the design team was challenged to create an attractive building that would be the gateway to the downtown Delray Beach area from the west.
The planning department required that the building, which has more than 1,000 linear feet of road frontage, “have character and movement.” As such, the incorporation of towers, portals, arcades, bowed balconies, guard rails, sign panel inserts, applied cantilevered panels, and a variation of recessed elements and shapes allowed for the development of the building’s character. The towers, bowed balconies, medallions, bahama shutters and large tilt-up panels creating a covered arcade into the business park.
To take emphasis off the building’s immense length, towers and portals with unique reveal patterns were used to accentuate the building’s verticality. The bold color scheme combined with the architectural elements creates the movement in the building’s façades. Further, the bowed balconies, deep reveals and sun shading devices add the drama to the design that was desired by both the owner and the city.
Cantilevered panels create a three-dimensional parapet along the main façade, and secondary entrances were given similar emphasis via “tongue and groove” type panels along the parapet walls.
Ninety percent sold and leased prior to the completion of construction, with the professional assistance of H&B Commercial, a Division of Home & Business Partners, the project has received numerous awards including the Gold Coast Builders Association 2005 PRISM Gold Award for Architecture for a Commercial Project and the City of Delray Beach Community Appearance Award for Best New Industrial Development 2004.
