DELRAY BEACH, Fla. -- The Congress corridor in Delray Beach could soon see new development. City leaders approved a new project in the former Office Depot lot just south of Linton Boulevard.

Joint developers plan to build apartments and retail space on the 50-acre lot.

Key International, 13th Floor Investments, and CDS International are all working together in the two-phase project.

The lot currently has several abandoned buildings left by Office Depot and the Arbor office building that will stay during the project.

The master plan approved by city commissioners has over 1,000 living options and 330,000 square feet of retail space. There will be a park and walking trails.

“We think the Office Depot project will catalyze the Congress corridor now,” said Michal Kaufman with Kaufman Lynn Construction. His company moved to the corridor last year, anticipating the growth in the area.

“For us that are the pioneers of the new contraction we are excited about that,” he said.

The developers want to try and break ground by the end of this year. Final permit approval is still being done.
