GREAT PLACES AND SPACES

Merin Hunter Codman’s new look

After being in the same space for 30 years, NAI Merin Hunter Codman’s leaders wanted to create a fresh work environment to invigorate and inspire its employees.  As a commercial real estate firm, it also wanted to reflect how people want to work today with collaborative spaces and natural lighting.  Chairman Neil Merin was the primary designer working with Julie Carr and Rosana Moreira of The CIGroup of Boca Raton.  Modern elements and bright colors are combined with rustic pieces like a distressed wood barn door to create an eclectic, professional and fun environment. A café area is a central focal point. 

 

Remembering Mizner

 Architect Addison Mizner helped define the look of Palm Beach and Boca Raton with his Mediterranean style of architecture. A new coffee table book, “Addison Mizner: The Architect Whose Genius Defined Palm Beach,” combines photographs of Mizner’s work with his colorful life story.  While Mizner is remembered largely as an architect, the book details how he was an entrepreneur as well, whether getting society friends behind the syndicate to develop Boca Raton or creating a furniture factory. The book by architect Stephen Perkins and historian James Caughman provides an entertaining history of early Palm Beach. Photographer Craig Kuhner contributes photos of Mizner’s work, which endures decades after his 1933 death.

Bahia Mar Makeover

After years of false starts, the Fort Lauderdale City Commission at the end of 2017 finally approved the redevelopment of Bahia Mar Resort and Yachting Center, home to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The concept by architect Kobi Karp for Tate Development includes seven high-rise apartment buildings with 651 units total, a 256-room hotel, a five-story office building with a supermarket, a 1,900-space underground garage, a two-story restaurant and a marina village with one and two story buildings. A promenade will provide public access to the waterfront. Much of the landside portion of the boat show will move into the garage space.

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.
