Last week, Flora Fine Foods and Orvino Wine Imports broke ground on a new South Florida headquarters. The 75,000-square-foot project is located in Coral Springs on Sample Road between Coral Ridge Drive and the Sawgrass Expressway. Flora Fine Foods and Orvino Wine Imports, whose products are popular with consumers in local grocery stores, will include Class A office space, a Flora Foods distribution center and an Italian marketplace. The company already operates a distribution center in the city.

In attendance at the groundbreaking (pictured left) were the following: Coral Springs Mayor Scott Brook; Vice Major Joshua Simmons; Commissioners Joy Carter, Shawn Cerra, Nancy Metayer; Coral Springs Director of Economic Development Kristi Bartlett; Flora Fine Foods and Orvino Wine Imports John Flora; Flora Vice President Irene Flora; Flora COO Chris Flora; CIO and Executive Vice President of Business Development John Flora Jr.; Brand Ambassador Angela Flora; and Malcom Butters, Mark Butters and Chris Lawrence of Butters Construction & Development.

The project is expected for delivery in the fourth quarter. Butters Construction & Development is serving as the general contractor while the architect is T&T Design and Development. Both companies are based in Coconut Creek.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Editor-in-Chief

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
