Easton Group has proposed a warehouse in Riviera Beach to aid in distribution of goods from nearby Port of Palm Beach.
Miami-based Easton Group owns the 8.9-acre site on the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. on west side of railroad tracks. It acquired the vacant property for $6.5 million in December 2021 through SFG ISF Riviera MLK LLC. The developer has a pending application with the city to combine three parcels into a single tract of land and to build a 34,500-square-foot warehouse/office facility.
The Riviera Beach Planning and Zoning Board approved the application 5-1 on April 28. The project will need City Council approval at a later date. The building would have 31,500 square feet of warehousing and 3,000 square feet of office, along with 60 trailer loading docks lining the building. There would be 49 trailer staging parking spaces on the site.
