DELRAY BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 -- Multifamily developer Wood Partners has announced the grand opening of Midtown Delray, a neighborhood of 116 three-story rental townhomes ideally positioned for access to cultural, dining, employment, shopping and recreational opportunities.
Construction of the new 17-building community at 4200 Old Germantown Road, along the south side of Linton Boulevard and just east of Military Trail, began in July 2012.
David Thompson, director for Wood Partners in Florida, noted that the location along Old Germantown Road, plus the amenities in Midtown Delray, sets the community apart from the local competition and demand is expected to be high.
"New rental supply in all of Palm Beach County is extremely limited and demand has been building for years," Thompson said. "This is the second new apartment project Wood Partners has completed in Delray Beach this year. We are experiencing high interest and steady traffic at both Midtown and Alta Congress."
Midtown Delray homes average just under 1,700 square-feet, and each residence has an attached garage on the first floor, 82 of which will accommodate two cars. The units are amenity-rich with ceramic flooring in kitchens, entries and baths; ceramic tub surrounds; and 9-foot 4-inch ceilings throughout. The kitchens have stainless steel appliances, 42-inch cabinets with granite tops and sleek, modern lighting fixtures. The community also features a clubhouse, swimming pool and tot lot.
Midtown Delray is near downtown Delray Beach and a neighbor to several high-end single-family communities, including Fox Chase to the east and Hammock Reserve to the west. The 7.27-acre site is less than four miles east of the Ronald Reagan Turnpike and just two miles west of I-95 and the Delray Beach TriRail station that connects Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach with 18 stations along a 70-mile system.
Major local and regional employment centers, including West Palm Beach and Boca Raton, are close to Midtown Delray; Old School Square on Atlantic Avenue, the heart of historic Delray Beach, is just a short drive away. An abundance of cultural venues, restaurants and shops make Atlantic Avenue dining and shopping second only to South Beach's Lincoln Road among Florida hot spots.
Nearby recreation and outdoor activity opportunities abound. The Atlantic Ocean is less than three miles to the east and the scenic six-acre Orchard View Park with picnic pavilions, barbecue grills, playground, and a walking trail, is immediately adjacent to the site. Several golf courses are nearby, including Delray Beach Golf Club, designed by legendary golf course architect Donald Ross, whose prolific works include the masterpieces Pinehurst, Oakland Hills, and nearly 600 others.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
