A developer is revising plans to replace a mostly vacant shopping center in northeast Palm Beach County with 300 rental apartments after the Juno Beach Town Council criticized the proposed redevelopment.

Members of the town council and residents of Juno Beach have complained that a 300-unit apartment development on the 11-acre shopping center site is too dense.

The Palm Beach County Commission will decide whether to grant final approval of the proposed redevelopment of the shopping center, called North Beach Plaza.

The shopping center is in unincorporated Palm Beach County, but it’s an area that Juno Beach may annex in the future, so the town can review the proposed redevelopment, too.

The company behind the proposal, Fairway Investments LLC, proposed tearing down the shopping center to clear the land for a gated complex with 300 apartments including some workforce-housing units.

The apartment development would be called Lenox North Beach. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
