Fisherman’s Wharf, a 39-unit waterfront condominium project with a few units designated for workforce housing, is proposed for Jupiter.

The developer is a company led by Mark Emalfarb, who heads the local biotech firm Dyadic International. The town council will consider the development on Tuesday. The site lies just west of the Intracoastal Waterway, on the northeast corner of Indiantown Road and Fisherman’s Way.

Emalfarb has owned the 5.2 acre site for 25 years and has tried to build on it before, but the plans never went through, according to the South Florida Business Journal. He paid $3.4 million for the site in 1993.
