The Boynton Beach Community Redevelopment Agency accepted a request on Tuesday to work out a plan with One Boynton Realty for a bevy of developments in the downtown area, the Sun-Sentinel Reported.

The board has decided to negotiate for One Boynton to build an 11-story mixed use tower, a 12-story mixed use tower, an 11-story hotel and a 50,000-square-foot national headquarters for law firm Kanner & Pintaluga — all in downtown Boynton Beach. 

The law firm started in Boynton in 2003 but moved to Delray last year. If the firm comes back to the city, it could bring 200 jobs with it. “The jobs are essential to us,” agency executive director Vivian Brooks said on Wednesday, per the Sentinel. “We are giving our all to help make it happen.”

Although some Boynton residents expressed concern about the height of the proposed buildings, the Sentinel said, the board unanimously agreed to move forward with the project. [Sun-Sentinel]  —Evan Bleier
