New Affordable Health and Living Community for Seniors in Broward County Completes Construction Milestone

Douglas Gardens Residences is expected to be completed in late 2024.

ANF Group, Inc. recently celebrated the topping out of the Douglas Garden Residences, which is Broward County’s newest senior health and living community. The company provides construction management, general contracting, development and design-build services to the South Florida market. The project at 705 SW 88th Ave. will serve as the largest affordable living development for seniors in Florida by delivering a modern mixed-income community that seamlessly integrates health care and housing into one development for local seniors. The development will be constructed on the existing MJH’s 25-acre Douglas Gardens North Campus.

Miami Jewish Health (MJH), a nonprofit organization that provides health care and living options for aging adults, partnered with McDowell Housing Partners, a prominent real estate investment and development company, to develop the project.

“We are excited to commemorate the topping out of Douglas Garden Residences, offering seniors in the area a new, well-equipped and affordable living option,” Al Fernandez says, president of ANF Group. “We are grateful for the project team and look forward to delivering the largest affordable living development for seniors in Broward County.”

Douglas Gardens Residences is planning to offer 410 fully ADA-accessible units, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, to residents aged 62 or older. Out of these, 390 units will be reserved for age and income-qualifying residents, while the remaining 20 units will be available at market rates. In addition to the housing units, the project will also provide an array of high-quality amenities, such as a scenic pond surrounded by walking paths, several indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, a spacious fitness center, a well-equipped business center with computer stations, inviting craft and game rooms, a pet grooming station, and a library.

The project team includes ANF Group, Miami Jewish Health, and McDowell, along with engineer and landscape designer Keith & AssociatesREPRTWAR Architecture and Design, interior designer Jewel Toned Interiors, and law firm Nelson Mullins.

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.
