FORT LAUDERDALE, FL-Developer Amera Barron is planning to break ground in the spring on a 7,000-sf branch for Paradise Bank at NE Sixth Street on the east side of Federal Highway. This will be the bank’s second branch in Fort Lauderdale; the project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The architect on the project is Coral Gables-based Raphael Portuondo. The bank branch will feature Mediterranean mission-style architecture and a tree-lined trellised entry. Amera Barron consists of Coral Springs-based Amera Corp. and Coral Springs-based Barron Real Estate. Barron Real Estate president Charlie Ladd tells that the project is expected to cost $4 million. “This project is at the edge of Downtown Fort Lauderdale,” Ladd says. “There has been a lot of revitalization in the area.”
