Boynton Beach gave initial approval to construction of an Aldi grocery store, adding to Aldi’s growing presence in Palm Beach County.
City commissioners gave their preliminary green light to a proposal to build the Aldi location on a two-acre site at 3452 West Boynton Boulevard, now occupied by a poorly maintained one-story office building.
The city commission approved proposed rezoning proposals and a significant site plan modification to facilitate construction of the grocery store, which would span 17,880 square feet.
Commissioners are expected to grant final approval to the Aldi project at their meeting on Dec. 5.
It would be the first Aldi grocery store in Boynton Beach and the eighth in Palm Beach County, including an Aldi store now under construction west of the city at Hypoluxo Road and Military Trail.
According to the company’s website, Aldi now has six stores in Palm Beach County in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Palm Beach Gardens, Royal Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
