A property just west of Florida’s Turnpike near Wellington could be developed as a mixed-use project with a hotel, medical offices and self-storage.

KS Lake Worth LLC filed a small-scale land use amendment titled Lake Worth Crossing with Palm Beach County officials concerning the 9.15-acre site at 8344 Lake Worth Road, plus 4049, 4089 and 4111 Hooks Road. It currently has a barn and a single-family home but it’s mostly vacant.

The property is currently zoned “agricultural residential.” The county approved a development plan there in 2009 for a “lifestyle center” with a mix of restaurants, hotel, residential, and live/work units that mix homes and workplaces in a single space.

KS Lake Worth submitted a preliminary site plan to the county showcasing a 196,970-square-foot project. It would consist of a 127-room hotel in three stories totaling 53,690 square feet, 107,030 square feet of self-storage in three stories, and 36,000 square feet of medical offices in three stories. There would be 348 surface parking spaces.
