21 Drops, a Delray Beach aromatherapy oil company, has commissioned Richard Jones Architecture to design its new corporate showroom and offices.

21 Drops will be one of the anchor tenants in a unique new office building taking shape on US 1 in a former 50s era Chevrolet dealership that most recently was a tire business.

The new facility, being developed by Richard Caster, will be a historic restoration of a 1950’s era auto dealership structure originally designed by Sam Ogren; Delray Beach’s first resident architect.

Ogren is a local legend and much of the charm of his original design will be honored by the redevelopment.

When completed, the project will apply for national historic designation and will feature 4 office suites, new facades, parking, sidewalks and completely new interiors.

During a recent open house visitors to the project were wowed by the design, concept and cool features that will be preserved.

“This is exactly the kind of unique office project that is needed in Delray,” says Jeff Costello, assistant CRA director.

Caster’s vision was to modernize the historic charm of the Ogren design.

21 Drops is a promising company run by his wife. The aromatherapy brand has received tremendous publicity in recent months and is poised for national distribution and growth.

The brand was recently featured on NBC’s The Today Show.

Company visionary Cary Caster has a degree in botany and studied aromatherapy in Europe.

She is certified as an advanced clinical aroma-therapist.

As the project progresses, we will report on other new tenants moving into this very unique space.
