The Palm Beach Architectural Commission delayed making a decision on the Testa family’s application to replace its existing building with a mixed-use complex including six condos.

Board members asked architect Roger Janssen to come up with a design that has more variety and does not dominate the surrounding neighborhood. The family already has permission to demolish the 93-year-old Testa’s Restaurant building and several other structures on the 1.3-acre property. If approved, a two-story, 120,525-square-foot complex with more than 26,000 square feet of retail, six second-floor residential units and a 100-space underground parking garage would be constructed on Royal Poinciana Way.

The family sought recommendations on its application for 20 variances and four special exceptions, according to the Palm Beach Daily News.

Revised plans are expected to be presented during the Oct. 22 Architectural Commission meeting. [Palm Beach Daily News]Eric Kalis
