Related Group offered to build a performing arts center in Boca Raton if the city allows the Miami-based company to redevelop a 15-year-old amphitheater at Mizner Park.
Related wants to build 300 to 400 condos or rental apartments plus restaurants and a parking garage on a 3.6-acre site in Mizner Park and an empty lot nearby.
The project would be Related’s first development in Boca Raton.
The 3.6-acre site includes 1.8 acres where the open-air amphitheater opened in 2002.
In exchange for approval to redevelop the amphitheater site, Related offered to fund and build a 1,500-seat performing arts center and a parking garage for the city of Boca Raton.
The city took ownership of the amphitheater from the Schmidt Family Center for the Arts in 2010. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
