His recent work has focused on large and complex mixed-use buildings usually including a combination of residential, retail, office and parking.
Felix also has experience in resilient design, not only as it relates to climate change or natural disasters in coastal areas, but also in terms of economic and social equity resilience. The development of new affordable housing in a once blighted neighborhood and the revitalization of an empty downtown into a thriving destination. Both of these are examples of resilient design that correspond with Mr. Deloatch’s philosophy that all communities should have a design identity that is sustainable and ever evolving.
Mr. Deloatch holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Elizabeth City State University and a Master’s of Architecture from The Ohio State University. He is a member of the Urban Land Institute, the American Institute of Architects and the Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials.
