City employees started moving Friday to temporary office space as Boynton Beach and a private company prepared to build a new city hall and an apartment complex on a site just off Interstate 95.
The existing city hall building at 100 East Boynton Beach Boulevard may be demolished as soon as September to clear the site for construction of a five- or six-story hotel with as many as 140 rooms.
The hotel project is part of a mixed-use development called Town Square, which includes a new city hall, 705 apartments and two parking garages on land west of the existing city hall building, a 16-acre site near the Boynton Beach Boulevard exit off I-95.
The Town Square project is a public-private development by the city of Boynton Beach and Winter Park-based E2L Real Estate Solutions, the project’s recently appointed master developer.
Construction is expected to conclude by 2021 at an estimated cost of $250 million.
