Frisbie Group says it bought the oceanfront location of the shuttered Charley’s Crab restaurant in Palm Beach for about $26 million.
Charley’s Crab closed its Palm Beach location at 456 South Ocean Boulevard on Monday after operating there for 40 years.
Suzanne Frisbie, a principal of Frisbie Group, told the Palm Beach Daily News that the company may build five townhouses on the site of the restaurant and a house on an adjacent vacant lot that was part of the sale.
BCD Investors, a limited liability partnership, sold the 1.2-acre restaurant property, which has 280 feet of frontage on the ocean, and the vacant lot.
BCD paid $3.3 million in 1992 for the site of the 9,000-square-foot building that housed Charley’s Crab and the vacant lot just west of the restaurant’s parking lot.
