John Moriarty & Associates has completed $50m of infrastructure work at Metropica in Sunrise, FL, one of the nation’s largest under-construction mixed-use communities. Most of the work took place underground with the installation of drainage systems and technologies. The 65-acre, $1.5 billion urban high street development will eventually spread across approximately 4 million square feet to include residential condominiums, apartments, a boutique hotel, commercial office space and a broad range of retail and entertainment offerings. The first quarter of next year will also mark the beginning of construction of 280,000 sqf of retail in Metropica.

“We recognize that we are effectively building a city,” says Joseph Kavana, CEO of Metropica Development LLC, developers of Metropica. “You cannot see it, but in essence this is one of South Florida’s largest mixed-use projects. The new technology being deployed allows for a more efficient construction process throughout our various phases. There will ultimately be some 12,000 people living and working within Metropica and we need to ensure that the infrastructure is singularly efficient and reliable.”
