The plaza at Federal Highway and Woolbright Road is expected to get a complete makeover. It’ll start with tearing down the vacant, 60,000-square-foot Winn Dixie, which has been blocking views of the Intracoastal Waterway for years, and adding a residential high-rise.

Boynton Beach Prime Spot for Growth


Highlights

Keep your eye on these five projects bringing more growth to Boynton.

BOYNTON BEACH — Seniors, empty-nesters and young adults just starting out — Boynton Beach attracts them all.

It’s a place to sit at the inlet and watch the sunrise, play Little League baseball and shop at the city’s mall, which might not have the star power of Boca Raton’s Town Center Mall or The Gardens Mall, but it’s convenient.

For dining, you can sit along the Intracoastal Waterway with views of Ocean Ridge mansions and eat a lobster dinner at Prime Catch, or head to the ever-growing Congress Corridor’s Renaissance Commons or Boynton Harbor Marina.

There are homes appraised at $1.1 million off Federal Highway at the north end of the city and homes appraised at $47,650 in the heart of Boynton.

Maybe that’s why it’s so hard to put a label on Boynton Beach: Even lifelong resident, City Commissioner Mike Fitzpatrick, can’t do it.

“I see Boynton as the city right in the middle of the demographics…” said Fitzpatrick, 62, who remembers growing up next to dairy farms and stretches of undeveloped land. “It’s almost if you average everything out as far as income and race and nationality, you would pretty much end up with Boynton.”

The five next big things

2. 500 Ocean

Rental units will be priced between $1,300 and $2,100. There will be 20,000 square feet of commercial space and 341 residential units. There has been no update on retail stores.

4. Cortina

+This project is a $215 million residential development that will finish off the Boynton Village and Town Center with 1,000-plus units, a dog park, a walking trail and more.

This is an area of about 17 acres off Boynton Beach Boulevard with the historic high school as a centerpiece, along with with City Hall, the library and the police department. Redevelopment will be through a public-private partnership. The city has met with groups interested in the site and the project will likely include a residential component.
