BOCA RATON – Ask any resident of South Florida, and they’ll tell you that the rewards of living in a tropical paradise far outweigh the challenges that arise during the summer storm season. Swaying palms, warm ocean breezes and blue skies throughout the years remain an irresistible combination for those homeowners attracted to Boca Raton’s world-class lifestyle.


For the South Florida building industry, stringent building codes and changing weather patterns have been the catalyst for innovative new building materials. Kolter Urban’s Moderne Boca is one of the newest luxury communities in the area, and a prime example of how to weather the storm in style. The community’s award-winning architectural design is much more than aesthetically pleasing. Its solid concrete construction is just the beginning of the game-changing features enjoyed by its residents.


As Hurricane Irma approached South Florida in September, a frenzy of preparation began. Although many residents in the area were scrambling for shutters or plywood, residents at Moderne Boca enjoyed the peace of mind that comes from windows and doors rated for 150 mph winds without the need for additional protection. The solid concrete roof and walls created a veritable fortress for those who made the decision to shelter in place. As the Palm Beaches prepared for hurricane force winds, Moderne Boca stood ready to weather the storm.

“We knew Moderne Boca was well prepared for the storm,” says Bob Vail president of Kolter Urban. “Our residents were able to witness first-hand how well the community faired through the intense winds and rain. Other than cosmetic landscaping issues, their homes looked virtually the same the day before the storm and the day after.”




As one of the leading developers of high-rise towers and luxury properties throughout Florida, Kolter Urban has built more than 1,700 residences in prime coastal destinations. With more than $20 million in sales at Moderne Boca this year alone, they have created the right combination of modern design, contemporary style and quality construction. The 75 three-story residences in Boca Raton, offer three unique floorplans ranging in size from 2,128 to 2,794 sf of living area. Many of the residences are delivered with private interior elevators allowing tremendous flexibility for today’s families who are seeking maintenance-free alternatives to single-family homes.


Construction is complete on several of the buildings within the community, providing homeowners the choice of move-in ready homes with nature preserve, garden or swimming pool views. A private fitness room overlooks the spacious pool deck and entertainment area, ideally located within the community. Moderne Boca’s prime location in central Boca Raton is just steps away from the Spanish River Library, Pond Hawk Nature Preserve and the Spanish River Regional Park.
