Developer Plans Industrial Project In Agricultural Reserve In Palm Beach County
The owner of a plant nursery in the Agricultural Reserve west of Delray Beach wants to build an industrial project there.
Boca Raton-based 15445 US 441 LLC, owned by Dragos Sprinceana of GoldCoast Logistics, filed a privately-initiated text amendment with Palm Beach County officials concerning the 6.33-acre site at 15445 S. State Road 7/U.S. 441 and 10069 Le Reina Road. The developer assembled the property for a combined $3.9 million in 2022.
The application, titled GoldCoast Logistics, would permit about 95,000 square feet of industrial space on the site.
Accomplishing this would take several steps. First, the County Commission would need to approve the text amendment to allow “commercial” zoning north of La Reina Road along the State Road 7 corridor in the Agricultural Reserve. Then, the developer would need county approval for a land use amendment to allow commerce, instead of agriculture, on this property.
The County Commission granted preliminary approval for a measure in 2022 to allow more industrial development in the Agricultural Reserve, but only in select locations.
