The Capponi Construction Group , a Florida Licensed General Contractor (CGC #045327), has announced a pipeline of commercial, residential, and mixed-use projects in South Florida and Haiti that together are projected to triple the firm’s business over last year.
The largest of the projects is Hollywood Beach, a 350,000 square foot multi-use property with 225 hotel rooms, a retail and entertainment component, and four restaurants that will help revitalize historic Hollywood Beach and transform it into a new entertainment district. Other projects in Florida include a 27,000 square foot Historic PineTree Residence, designed by renowned Washington, D.C. architect Dale Overmyer; a 9,500 square foot residence in Coral Gables designed by Kobi Karp; and, Villa Azur, one of South Beach’s hottest new restaurants, designed by Francois Fossard and Tai Architecture.
In Jacmel, Haiti, the firm is building a 44-room boutique hotel this year as part of the development of a world-class resort that will ultimately also include retail and touring capabilities. The resort is part of a larger redevelopment of Jacmel that is being led by Capponi Construction Group founder and chairman Michael Capponi in cooperation with the Jacmel Advisory Council. Part of Capponi Construction Group’s mission in Jacmel is to create economic opportunity for the local population. To that end, 99% of the construction employees they have hired are Haitian nationals from the local area.
“We are excited and gratified to enter 2012 working with some of South Florida’s best developers and architects,” said Kenneth J. Gross, President and CEO of Capponi Construction Group. “Our team is dedicated to living up to their highest expectations in terms of service and quality.” Mr. Gross, a 40-year veteran of the construction industry, leads a team that has on average over 20 years of hands-on experience with complex construction projects. The firm’s recently completed projects include the renovation of the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, which was designed by architect Chad Oppenheim. Currently, as a part of its charitable activities, Capponi Construction Group is providing part pro-bono services to the Miami Rescue Mission for the construction of a 125-bed homeless shelter for men.
“Capponi Construction Group is committed to being the builder of choice for exceptional commercial and residential projects, and to giving back to the communities in which we work in a meaningful way,” said Michael Capponi. “Our 2012 pipeline is evidence that we are living up to that vision.”
