New mixed use projects on the boards

We are working on several mixed use retail and self storage projects throughout Florida. Here's a preview.



Balaity to speak at SmartShow in Chicago

I am honored to participate as a guest speaker on jewelry store design at the SmartShow in Chicago April 17 - 19.  The focus will be on our design process for InStore Magazine's 2015 winner of the "Big Cool" award, Fox Fine Jewlery.


Gillespie Park Modern completed

Balaity Property Enhancement relocated in 2015 to the new multifamily live/work space designed by Mr. Balaity in Sarasota's Gillespie Park neighborhood.  The building includes a ground floor live/work space, second floor rental apartment, and separate garage building with its own secnod floor apartment.  The modern design respects Gillespie Park's historic character and identity as a "front porch" community.  



First Piercing Pagoda installation

Signet Jewelers Limited, parent company to Piercing Pagoda, commissioned Balaity Property Enhancement for the design of the Piercing Pagoda "Store of the Future".  After a year of research and design, the first prototype is now in place at Summit Mall in Akron, Ohio.



Fox Fine Jewelry wins America's Coolest Stores award

InStore Magazine is the leading U.S. jewelry industry publication.  Each year, InStore holds a contest for America's Coolest Stores.  For 2015, the top honor went to Fox Fine Jewelry in Ventura, CA.  It is a humbling honor for Balaity Property Enhancement to receive national recognition from an esteemed panel including retail merchandising guru Paco Underhill.  Balaity's first store to place in the America's Coolest Stores contest was Sarasota's Diamond Vault, a project that helped launch his career in retail design and jewelry store specialization throughout North America.
