Under Construction in the Polo Shoppes!
You’ve probably seen the construction (or influx of new shoppers in the Regency Court Publix!) Slated to be reopened early-2022, the Publix in the Polo Shoppes on Military is undergoing major renovations. Though unsubstantiated by official sources, rumor has it, the Polo Shoppes will feature Boca’s first two-story Publix, complete with an indoor restaurant. I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
The Brightline Begins
Brightline trains will be uniting the state of Florida like never before. Boca’s 9,035SF train station has received a $1.5 million federal grant. Located in the 1300 block of Eighth St., construction is on track for a summer 2022 opening.
Stops will include Aventura, Boca Raton, Port Miami, West Palm Beach (✓), Central Miami (✓), and Orlando.
(The Artist Formerly Known as) The Mizner Trail Golf Course
The 127-acre Mizner Trail Golf Course between Camino Real and SW 18th has officially been sold for $33.2M. In its place, Boca will gain seven new gated communities with a single common amenity center. There is currently no public timeline, but this will undoubtedly bring a lot of value to the already valuable Central/South Boca.
Boca Raton Center for Arts & Innovation: Decades in the Making
The Edith & Martin Stein Family Foundation recently made a seven-figure donation to The Boca Raton Arts District Exploratory Corporation (BRADEC). This pledge of $5M will help break the ground for the Boca Raton Center for Arts & Innovation. This center will be Boca Raton’s hub for all things tech, culture, and education. Upon the full raising of the capital and completion of the design, planning, permitting and pre-construction phases, construction will commence, with an estimated 24-28 month construction schedule.
The newly-improved amphitheater will be first finished, expected by 2025, with the full center slated to open in 2027.
