This project was a collaboration with Tony Grimaldi, a landscape architect, fisherman, nutritionist, and good friend in Florida. Tony mops up on Florida’s East coast up and around Hobe Sound designing and building tropical landscapes for the well-to-do. Tony approached us about helping him redesign an existing condominium tower from the 1980’s that needed a change from the existing layout. 40NORTH worked with Tony to create a new resort-like guest experience at the pool area, complete with refurbished cabanas and a members outdoor bar, and new landscape to compliment the existing mature Sylvester palms to remain.
40NORTH provided concept design services over the course of 72 hours. Not what happened after we submitted the documents, we just had a great time working with Tony. He came out to the farm later and spent a week with us. He’s still a hit with the girls, he sent them a huge box of art supplies about a week after he was here. If you need to contact one of the most knowledgable people on the planet about tropical plants in Florida, he’s your man. Website above.
