Plans to build an age-restricted apartment complex in Palm Beach Gardens are pending a proposed rezoning.

Troy, New York-based United Group of Companies plans to build 220 apartments for tenants age 55 and older.

United Group wants to build the apartments on the 11-acre site of the Amara Shrine Center at 3650 RCA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens.

The Palm Beach Gardens City Council is scheduled to vote Dec. 6 on the planned apartment project and a proposal to change the zoning of the development site from commercial to residential.

The apartment complex would be called Arcadia Commons and would have one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Each apartment would have a washer and dryer and a screened-in porch.

Common-area amenities at Arcadia Commons would include a swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and fire pit, a dog park, and bocce, croquet and pickleball court, plus a 15,000-square-foot clubhouse with a gym and a commercial kitchen.

If the $60 million development is approved, United Group would start construction in late spring or early summer and would complete it in early 2021, according to project manager Tim Haskins of United Group. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
