CubeSmart : Retail developments proposed throughout suburban Boynton

08/29/2015 | 10:39am US/Eastern

Aug. 29--Woolbright and Jog roads. Boynton Beach Boulevard and Hagen Ranch Road. There isn't a ton of space left to develop in the suburban Boynton Beach area, but where there is, developers are grabbing it quick.

The area already has a lot of residential developments. The Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations is up to more than 100 communities as part of its membership. But it's commercial that seems to be proposed more and more now.

Even the Falls Golf and Country Club at Hypoluxo and Jog roads wants to add commercial space.

The proposed developments are getting mixed reactions. Some worry they'll be too big, and create more traffic in an already-booming development area. Others don't even know developments are being proposed right next to them. But regardless of what the residents think, it's ultimately up to the Palm Beach County commissioners to decide whether to approve them.

One of the proposals is for 1.16 acres of land on Boynton Beach Boulevard near Hagen Ranch Road. It's right next to the CubeSmart, and Dave Hale, the store's manager said he was told there might be a car wash going in. The vacant space is zoned for multiple-use planned development and as is could be developed into as much as 12,571 square feet of commercial retail space, but the owner wants something different. The proposal is for it to be developed into commercial retail of up to 25,146 square feet as commercial.

Hale said he and the others at the CubeSmart are wondering how disruptive construction will be if the plan is approved. He also wonders how the space is large enough for the car wash. But as far as the business itself, he is used to it. He previously worked at the CubeSmart at Woolbright Road and Congress Avenue and that, too, was near a car wash. He said it didn't interfere with business.

He said at first when he heard the land was going to be developed, he thought maybe it would be a restaurant. But he understands the car wash idea.

"I don't know where the nearest car wash is around here," he said.

Across the street developers are hoping to turn 7.93 acres approved for up to 86,326 square feet of commercial retail to up to 120,856 square feet of the same. The land is owned by William Mazzoni Revocable Trust, and is vacant.

Development proposed just south of that at Woolbright and Jog roads is creating more of a stir. The land is next to Beth Israel Memorial Chapel and Kenneth Kay, the director, is concerned. There, developers plan to ask the county for permission to change from an already approved plan of a two-story building for non-retail office and medical space, to two one-story buildings for retail and medical spaces, and retail and restaurants, according to documents.

Kay isn't the only one opposed. Residents from the Valencia Pointe and Valencia Isles developers are also in opposition. They worry about additional traffic to an already congested area. And they heard that one of the restaurants is supposed to have a drive through, which increases their traffic worries even more.

"It's definitely going to be a problem," Kay said.
