Boca Developers seek extensions

May 28, 2008 03:08PM

As builders are delayed by a sluggish economy and strained credit market, the Boca Raton City Council is issuing more building permit extensions than ever. Developers of the Eden project off Palmetto Park Road asked for an extension in September, with many other developers following suit. Since then, Camden Summer Partnership has received an extension for its project, the Summit, and Lennar Corp. is now seeking one for its Central Park townhouse project. Deputy City Manager George Brown said that before Eden, he couldn’t recall a single building permit extension request in at least 20 years.
