The Building Relocation Experts


This is the third and largest section of the 1927 Addison Mizner mansion, “L’Encantada” (the enchanted one).  This 8,000 square foot clay tile structure was relocated by barge  from Manalapan to storage at the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute in Fort Pierce in 2000.  In 2001, the three sections, measuring (#1) 66’ wide and 67’ long at 400 tons, (#2) 31’ wide and 54’ long at 220 tons, and (#3) 30’ wide and 66’ long at 300 tons, were then moved again by barge to their final destination oceanfront in Palm Beach for Jim Moran of Maryland.
