Redevelopment plans announced at Delray Plaza
Rendering of the revamped Delray Plaza
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (July 6, 2017) – Georgia-based commercial real estate development firm, S.J. Collins Enterprises, is redeveloping Delray Plaza, an 85,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial project, and adding several new occupants.
Located at 660 W. Linton Boulevard, the revitalized Delray Plaza will feature a 30,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market 365, a grocery store that provides simple, affordable and convenient everyday shopping without sacrificing the quality standards and dedication to food transparency that Whole Foods Market pioneered. Newly announced First Watch and Zoes Kitchen will also be added to the center’s lineup.
“The redevelopment of the underutilized Linton International Plaza provides a much-needed and convenient location for new and healthier grocery and retail shopping options west of Federal Highway,” said City of Delray Beach Mayor Cary Glickstein. “We appreciate this development team retaining local businesses into what will be a vibrant, neighborhood shopping destination for locals and visitors alike.”
The Whole Foods Market 365 store will occupy a space formerly utilized as a Palm Beach Gym. The developer is assisting with the relocation efforts for some of the center’s existing tenants. Bordered by Lavers Avenue, Linton Boulevard and Alta Meadows Lane in Delray, Pet Supplies Plus, Pollo Tropical and Subway, along with several other retail and office tenants, will remain at Delray Plaza.
“We are excited to launch the revitalization efforts at Delray Plaza and truly appreciate the engagement from local officials in the process of the redevelopment of this location,” said Jeff Garrison, partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises. “Whole Foods Market 365, which will provide a new grocery shopping experience centered on making healthy living easy, is a great addition to the neighborhood development, and several other first-to-market tenants will be announced in the future.”
There are still available opportunities within Delray Plaza, and S.J. Collins Enterprises is working to finalize the refined and diverse merchandising mix before its targeted construction start date of November 2017. Portions of the site will remain open throughout the renovations and construction. The shopping plaza is anticipated to open in the first quarter of 2019.
