Artesia is designed to look as if it happened over the course of time instead of over a couple of years. It will blend the romantic qualities of intimate European villages with a strikingly contemporary lifestyle. The wonderfully landscaped streets and boardwalk and the classic influence of our rich Mediterranean architectural heritage will bring a new elegance to condominium and townhome living in South Florida.

What's more, the location simply couldn't be more ideal. You're at the very epicenter of South Florida, near the more than 2 million square feet of fine shopping and dining of Sawgrass Mills; close to a sports and entertainment mecca, the Office Depot Center; and convenient to high quality office space.

Colorful TownVillas will set the tone at the ground level. They in turn will be complemented by GardenVillas built around lavishly landscaped courtyards. Perched above the community will be expansive SkyVillas offering picture-postcard panoramas of the lake and pools, and end-of-day splendor as the tropical sun slowly descends over the tranquil Everglades.

All residences will live very much like private villas. Arched colonnades lead into beautiful courtyards with sculpted roof forms reminiscent of those found in the villaggi of Italy. Most residences will welcome you with individual, gated entry courts. Parking is hidden underneath the buildings. In addition, residences are full of unexpected surprises, like glorious gourmet kitchens, elegant master suites and a sense of airiness and openness derived from a combination of high ceilings, sprawling screened patios and ingenious use of light and glass.

Artesia will also feature a world-class club called Villa Artesia. The two story clubhouse will have the look of a palatial Mediterranean estate. Its many highlights include: a professional staff, including concierge; a spa & fitness center with state of the art cardiovascular and physical training equipment, massage rooms and saunas; a great room for parties, celebrations and movies; a sports lounge with billiards and cards, plus balcony overlooking the Recreational Plaza; a demonstration kitchen that will have top chefs; an indoor sports court for basketball, aerobics and yoga; a club room/library with fireplace; a business center/boardroom; a delightful "Artesian Fountain-Café" for light snacks and refreshing beverages; and an arts and crafts room.
