Palm Beach County commissioners recently approved three large-scale commercial projects in the Agricultural Reserve, two of them across the street from each other on Boynton Beach Boulevard at the Acme Dairy Road intersection.
One of the projects, The District, will feature indoor pickleball courts, a fitness center, a microbrewery with a tap room, warehouses and a storage facility that will have lockers for expensive wines. Construction could begin by the middle of next year. It will be built on 47.2 acres.
To make it happen, county commissioners had to approve a land-use and zoning change, which they voted unanimously on Aug. 24 to do. Two prominent South Florida developers, the Channing Corporation and the Butters Group, will now move forward with their building plans.
Channing said he and his partner, Malcom Butters, worked with the area residents to give them what they wanted.
The plans were developed in consultation with two residents groups, the Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations and the Boynton Ag Reserve Communities.
On the south side of Boynton Beach Boulevard will be Logan Ranch, a residential community that would include apartments and possibly townhouses. At the meeting, the developer said 314 residences are planned, with most of them apartments with 79 of them set aside as workforce housing.
Plans call for six four-story buildings and seven two-story buildings. The smaller ones would contain the townhouses.
Also approved Thursday was a land-use change on 8 acres on the west side of State Road 7 near Atlantic Avenue. The builder expects to construct warehouses and office space on the parcel. The project can be no more than 155,000 square feet. The builder said there is a need for light industrial uses to serve the area’s increasing residential population.
