Boynton Beach, FL (PressExposure) March 04, 2009 -- The six year-long dream of transforming a former lumber yard in Boynton Beach into a thriving community is now a reality with the opening of Las Ventanas, a new mixed-use luxury apartment and retail complex.
Anyone familiar with the area will remember Gulfstream Lumber at the corner of S. Federal Highway and Woolbright Road. What was once a sprawling lumber yard has been completely leveled and cultivated into a beautiful urban development with a special lifestyle that has become so popular in South Florida. This mixed-use community offers its residents the convenience of being able to walk to just about everything, such as grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and best of all . . . the beach.
Las Ventanas is located on fifteen acres, ideally situated just one half mile from Interstate 95, providing easy travel to those commuting North to the Palm Beaches or South to Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The community is also conveniently located near Bethesda Hospital, local public and private golf courses, as well as public facilities like schools, libraries, and parks.
Las Ventanas features 494 one, two, and three bedroom apartment homes and townhomes. Offering 20 different floorplans, the property provides unique living spaces for all tastes. The community features two five-story towers, each with their own courtyard pool/spa and private parking garage. Every apartment home comes fully equipped with kitchen appliances, including a built-in microwave over the stove, dishwasher, self-cleaning oven, and frost-free refrigerator with icemaker. A full-size washer and dryer, granite counter tops in kitchen and bath, spacious closets, ceiling fans in every room, an intrusion alarm, and hurricane impact-resistant windows are just a few of the unique features that each apartment home includes.
There are also apartment homes situated above the retail space that includes restaurants, shops, and professional offices for which a separate parking garage is available for use by the public. In addition to apartment homes, Las Ventanas offers 20 townhomes. Each of the 2,000 square foot townhomes has 3 bedrooms, 2 Â½ baths, and features an attached two car garage. These townhomes will be conveniently located adjacent to the community clubhouse with a third pool and amenities.
Las Ventanas offers its residents a wide array of lifestyle amenities, including a top of the line fitness center, an indoor air-conditioned basketball court, courtyard pools and spas with WiFi access, business center with computers with high-speed internet access and copier/fax machine, movie theater (with game-systems, including Nintendo Wii), and complete concierge services.
Monthly rents at Las Ventanas range from $1,290 for one-bedrooms, from $1,740 for two-bedrooms, and from $2,005 for three-bedrooms. Generous move-in concessions are being offered to early renters.

According to Suzanne Moore, Property Supervisor of Las Ventanas, âWith the slowdown in the housing market, we are seeing more people opting to rent rather than purchase a home or condo. Combined with the tightening of the mortgage market, preventing many potential home buyers from obtaining financing, and decreases in job security during this ever-changing economy, more and more people are choosing to rent. We expect to see this trend continue for quite some time.â
Add the high cost of gasoline to the mix, and the prospect of a short walk to just about every place you need to go, including two grocery stores, becomes extremely appealing. The ocean is just a short walk or bike ride across the Woolbright Bridge, where Boyntonâs and Delrayâs public beaches are only minutes away.
Las Ventanas is sure to become the premier community for luxury and convenience in Boynton Beach.
