Michael Lally -- Owner, Upstate Builders

Born and raised in Geneva, Mike lived and worked in the area until the mid 1980's, where his love of building took him to Florida to pursue larger projects.

He became a Florida certified general contractor and started building mini warehouses and large upscale custom homes. His aptitude for business and real estate development allowed him to grow that business, earning awards for his homes along the way. Today Upstate Builders, Inc. is a sought after luxury home builder.

Lally helped start FRIENDS (For Residence in Emergency Need of Donated Services), a non-profit organization completing 100% donated homes and working with Habitat for Humanity. Michael sat on the board of directors of the Treasure Coast Builders Association, where he has received several awards in appreciation for his services with this organization.

Always interested in business opportunities and investments, Lally is an investor with a Florida travel agency and a waste management company. He is also a Florida state building contractor and a United Stated Coast Guard Merchant Marine Captain.

Since opening in 2001, Regatta Construction has quickly become one of the fastest growing, most highly respected luxury homebuilders on Florida’s east coast. From Palm Bay and Vero Beach to St. Lucie West and the communities of Martin County, we’ve built our reputation on integrity, professionalism, exceptional value and superior customer service. Our logo, seven maritime signal flags spelling the word “Quality,” is an unwavering reminder of our commitment to these principles.


The quality built into a Regatta home speaks for itself. Walk into any of our semi-custom, luxury single family homes or town homes and the attention to detail, commitment to exceeding expectations, and enduring value are immediately apparent.

Quality continues beyond the eye’s reach too with the Regatta team’s commitment to exceptional customer service. Building with Regatta Construction is a genuinely different experience, one in which superb customer service is part of a commitment to quality and lasting value.

Customer Focus

Our customer commitment begins with customer-focused designs that put homeowners first. Homes in Regatta Quality Developments include true dining rooms, granite kitchen counters and impact glass – all standard. Other customer-delighting details in our communities include airy site plans that maximize privacy and scenery with irregularly shaped lots and extra lakes.

We bring this same attention to detail to individual home construction on scattered lots throughout the Space and Treasure Coast. Whether working from customer plans or building one of our own models, we work to bring out the best in every home we build.

Behind it all is a service commitment that includes giving homebuyers access to the Regatta team throughout construction.


Regatta Constructions partners have over eighty years of combined experience building premium homes in some of the finest communities in Florida, including the Reserve, Bermuda Club, Island Club and PGA Village. Today they enjoy an extended family of loyal clients from Miami to Melbourne, Florida.


In 2002 Regatta Construction branched out from its custom home business to open the first Regatta Quality Community, Riverwind – a single-family home community in Vero Beach. The Treasure Coast Builders’ Association immediately awarded Riverwind the Parade of Homes Grand Platinum award for its Beaumonte model and has since recognized the community with numerous other awards.

Riverwind was soon followed by Bridgepointe, a 166-unit townhome community across from Riverwind on Indian River Boulevard in Vero Beach. Diamond Court Village is now under construction and Regatta recently announced plans to develop Diamond Court West on Indian River Boulevard at 41st Street. In addition, Regatta is actively involved in developing the Regatta Exclusive Communities of Tuscany Estates and the The Falls of Palm Bay.  

Building Area

In addition to its communities, Regatta's portfolio has grown steadily and includes single-family homes from Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Brevard counties.
