Ascend Properties has broken ground on the 179-unit METROPOLITAN in Wilton Manors, a property with some back story: Located at 1224 NE 24TH ST, the development site until recently was home to a mobile home park damaged by Hurricane Katrina, but not before it served as the setting for _Striptease_, with DEMI MOORE and BURT REYNOLDS. “The current real estate cycle is characterized by STRONG COMPETITION FOR SITES in desirable neighborhoods like Wilton Manors,” says Ascend principal RICHARD FINKELSTEIN (center, flanked by principals DEAN BORG and MICHAEL WOHL). The partners were able to obtain the site in an OFF-MARKET DEAL from the family that had owned it for generations, working with Wilton Manors officials on development plans to elevate the property’s appeal and value.
