A senior living community under construction west of Boynton Beach is attracting praise as well as criticism, with residents forming the Allegro Project Committee to keep track of construction.

“The whole thing is a horror show,” Marvin Kaufman, the president of the Valencia Lakes Homeowners Association, told the Palm Beach Post.

Kaufman added that the two-story buildings, dubbed the Allegro at Valencia Lakes, have been changed to three stories and that the water retention area decreased in size.

However, others say that the 136-unit apartment project is good for the area and will bring economic development.

“Everything that’s been done has been approved by the county,” said Community Director Martin Katz. “Once we’re up and running everyone will be happy.” [PBP] Christopher Cameron
