Affordable housing project needs grocery store

November 18, 2008 12:27PM

A 26-acre redevelopment plan for a Boynton Beach neighborhood
is delayed because there must be an open grocery store within one mile
of the development
in order for the project to receive affordable housing tax credits,
community
redevelopment agency officials said today. The project includes
as many as 160 low-income
rental apartments for senior citizens and retail space. It is located
along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between North Seacrest Boulevard
and
North Federal Highway. The project could later include townhouses,
additional condominiums, or single-family homes, as well as several mixed-use
buildings.
