A 10-acre waterfront parcel in Palm Beach County’s Lantana could be redeveloped into a mixed-use project with multiple residential buildings.

Lantana Council members are scheduled to cast a final vote on the proposed development on Monday night. They approved a comprehensive plan and rezoning for the project in June. Catholic community Cenacle Sisters has a contract to sell the 1400 South Dixie Highway property to development group Trinsic.

Town Mayor David Stewart was the only council member to vote against the development last time around. Stewart told the Palm Beach Post he still has concerns about the proposed project.

“That is the last large parcel of waterfront property in our town to be developed and I feel personally that it should be something great that creates a destination,” Stewart said. “And I don’t feel a rental community is something that will be a great addition to our town over the next 40 or 50 years.” [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
