Publix Super Markets plans to build a waterfront store with a dock on Hollywood’s barrier island.

Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy said in a Facebook post that the planned Publix supermarket would have a dock for boaters who want to stock their vessels with groceries.

A spokeswoman for Publix declined to comment.

Lakeland-based Publix intends to build a three-story supermarket at 3100 South Ocean Drive, a one-acre site along the Intracoastal Waterway just north of the Diplomat Beach Resort. The supermarket itself would be on the top floor, and parking would be on the first and second floors.

Graham Penn, an attorney for the owner of the one-acre site, said in a letter to the city government that the planned Publix store would benefit city residents because it would be the first supermarket on the barrier island in Hollywood.

According to Raelin Story, a spokeswoman for the City of Hollywood, Publix is expected to present its plan for the proposed supermarket to the city’s Technical Advisory Committee in December and then to the Planning and Development Board, which makes recommendations to city commissioners.
