Restaurant Row gets a go

Now diners can look forward to a walkable restaurant complex near the mall.

City council approved the site plan for Restaurant Row on the northeast corner of Town Center and Butts Road next to Town Center at Boca Raton.

“We would expect to have shovels in the ground by the second quarter 2020,” Jon M. Wainwright, Crocker Partner’s director of construction and development said after Monday’s vote.  

The site plan includes four pedestrian connections, sidewalks and landscaping including street trees, Michael Marshall, representing the developer told council. “It looks as good from the back as the front,” he said about the four-tenant building.

No outdoor dumpsters and no deliveries allowed during lunch or dinner. The only set asides granted were reduced required parking and the loading space length. Crocker will still have to apply for valet service.

The 22,500-square-foot building is on an existing complex. The Plaza already includes office space, a bank and garage with 781 parking spaces inside and out.

“We love the concept of sidewalks. Now people are walking in the streets,” said Glenn Gromann, an independent director. The building will buffer noise, he added.

“A lot of people on that side of town will be glad to see this move forward,” said Deputy Mayor Jeremy Rodgers.

Council members said they received a letter of support for the project from the nearby Via Verde Homeowners Association.

Marshall assured council restaurant signs will face Butts Road.
