Proposed development challenges Boca Raton height limit

The developer of a proposed condominium project aims to exceed Boca Raton’s height limits.

New Mizner on the Green is planned to be a 500-unit development with four towers that range from 23 to 30 stories. The city’s existing height limit is 100 feet. New Mizner’s developers are trying to sweeten the pot by promising to create a 2-acre public park and contributing more than $50 million in fees and taxes into the local economy.

The project must get through various board votes and the City Council. Also, the city’s height limit must be officially increased, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Local business owners told the newspaper they welcomed the affluent clientele the luxury condos would bring. Others questioned the need for a 30-foot building.

Boca Raton City Councilman Robert Weinroth favors waiting to see other developments shape up.

“I don’t think Boca is ready to embrace a project of this magnitude, and I question whether it ever will be,” Weinroth said.

New Mizner would be located at 200 Southeast Mizner Boulevard.  [Sun-Sentinel] – Frank Maradiaga
