Sanctuary Medicinals Florida is a series of projects aimed at expanding the successful Massachusetts-based organization into the Sunshine State. Since 2019, CAC has worked with Sanctuary and Vantage Builders to open several dispensaries and a partially completed cultivation facility in cities such as Orlando, Jupiter, Fort Pierce, St. Petersburg, Apopka, Miami, Delray Beach, and Tampa.
The majority of the dispensaries in Florida are renovations of existing buildings, with the exception of the Fort Pierce location, which is a ground-up build. CAC worked closely with the ownership team on creating a prototype for all of these locations, which was designed around the existing Sanctuary branding and adapted to fit the Florida market. This was achieved by incorporating bright, wood tones and a deep tile design to showcase the unique, relaxed atmosphere of the state.
This is an ongoing effort between CAC and the Sanctuary team, and new locations are still being opened. The most satisfying aspect of this project for the CAC team has been the ability to create a prototype and see it come to life over the years, and having a significant impact from the beginning of the project.
