Rendering for The Concierge and Group P6’s Ignacio Diaz

Group P6 is moving ahead with its planned luxury senior living facility in downtown Boca Raton, thanks to the city’s community redevelopment agency’s approval.

The Concierge will feature 88 rental units consisting of a mix of assisted and independent living residences as well as memory care beds. The planned 10-story building will also have an array of amenities including a restaurant, spa, home theater and rooftop bar.

The proposed development site is currently owned by Robert Buehl and sits along Southeast Sixth Street between Dixie Highway and Federal Highway, near the site of the Residences at Mandarin Oriental.

The 0.6-acre site currently holds a one-story office building that will be demolished.

The CRA’s ruling comes after it denied the 130,000-square-foot project in July over concerns it would not have enough parking and may strain the city’s fire rescue services.

The development firm then filed a petition with the court claiming the city’s rejection was baseless and discriminated against the elderly.

The most recent design of The Concierge decreases the initial unit count by 41. Ignacio Diaz said he aims to break ground on the project by the fourth quarter of 2019 and expects to score up to $43 million in construction financing.

Among other projects rejected by a Boca Raton governing board include Crocker Partners’ planned Midtown Boca project and an application to build more than 100 homes on a shuttered golf course, submitted by developer Brian Tuttle. Both parties have taken legal action against the city.
