JUPITER, Fla. - Developers are offering a 'drone's eye view' of one of the largest commercial construction projects northern Palm Beach County has ever seen.
Harbourside Place in Jupiter has been building up at what some say is warp-speed. Soon, it is set to open to the public.
Harbourside Place, at the corner of U.S. 1 and Indiantown Road has come a long way in recent months. At night, all is quiet on the construction site. But when the sun is shining, the size and scope of the project is in view.
Nick Mastroiani is President and CEO of the development company, Allied Capital & Development of South Florida. Mastroiani offered an exclusive look inside the project and also from above, using a camera equipped drone commissioned by the development company.
"It's quite amazing because the original vision for the development is not what turned out," said Mastroiani.
From the nearly completed outdoor amphitheater along the Intracoastal, to the ballroom of the 4 Star 179 room Wyndham Grand Hotel, the project has come a long way in recent months.
When the $144 million project is complete, seven different dining spots, about fifteen retail stores and office space on the upper floors will fill the space.
"You've got Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Delray. You have the Clematis area in West Palm Beach," said Mastroiani. "There's nothing north of that." Until now, he said. "This is kind of the gateway to the next spot north."
The hotel is already taking reservations for the grand opening, which is set for November.
Some of the tenants have still yet to be named publicly. Developers, though, have confirmed several so far:
- Tommy Bahama
- deep blu seafood grille
- Bravo Cucina Italiana
- Too Bizaare
- Another Broken Egg
- Coffee Culture Cafe
- Swim 'n Sport
