Fortune International Named Exclusive Sales and Marketing Agent for Worthing Place

DELRAY BEACH, FL and MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 16, 2007 -- Worthing Place, downtown Delray Beach's premier luxury condominium residence, announced today that Fortune International has been selected to lead the development's sales and marketing efforts.

"I am happy to announce the strategic alliance between Worthing Place and Fortune International," said Southcoast Partners president Bill Morris, who is renown for urban redevelopment projects including Boca Raton's Palmetto Place and Sarasota's 1350 Main. "Worthing Place is an attractive project to the local and global markets; Fortune International's proven real estate leadership, broker resources and impeccable reputation makes it an ideal match."

The upscale courtyard-style community developed by Southcoast Partners sits on three acres featuring 217 one, two and three bedroom residences ranging from $350,000 to $700,000 during its pre-construction phase. An urban oasis of amenities, Worthing Place offers resort-like concierge services such as entertainment and sports ticketing service, dining reservations, room service, housekeeping and laundry, pool-side towel service, private chefs, fitness trainers, massage therapists and dog walking as well as rental and property management for part-time owners.

"We are very excited to work on what is certain to be Delray Beach's premiere residence," said Edgardo Defortuna, president and CEO of Fortune International. "Worthing Place and Delray Beach fit perfectly into our portfolio of high-end properties."

Targeting buyers looking for an urban meets tropical way of life, Worthing Place offers a unique location and lifestyle. With its idyllic setting on historic Atlantic Avenue, the project is just steps away from shopping, culture, dining, nightlife, art galleries, coffee shops, sporting, boating and the beach.

Noted as Delray Beach's most luxurious condominium residence, Worthing Place is expected to begin construction in early 2007 following the completion of a $7.5 million public parking garage donated to the City of Delray Beach by Southcoast Partners. Known as "the Village by the Sea" and voted America's Best City, Delray Beach offers two miles of public beach, an array of recreational activities, destination shopping, a mecca of dining and nightlife as well as cultural attractions.

Worthing Place amenities offer an attractive mix of social, relaxation, business and fitness centers including tranquil water and orchid gardens, sitting pools, fountains, sixth floor sky deck and members' only lounge and bar areas. Discerning buyers will appreciate the attention to detail and extra touches including high finished ceilings, large romantic balconies, European influenced kitchens and baths featuring stylistic touches such as Carrara marble counter tops, finished floors and upgraded fixtures, appliances and cabinetry.

"Worthing Place is the perfect place to call home if looking for a taste of city life in a quaint beach community," said Morris.
