We designed this project with a modern, clean Architectural character that will offer a unique living experience for those who are fortunate enough to live in SkY. This Project is designed for the residents to enjoy the dock and waterway. There are 29 Units. Most of the units have the entry doorway off a court yard just off the dock on the water side. As residents and guests approach the front doors they experience the waterway and dock views.  The overall design of this project offers every residence owner an enjoyable living experience suited to the community it's located in, Lauderdale by the Sea, Florida.
