West Atlantic residents ask questions about redevelopment projects
Before Delray’s Community Redevelopment Agency selects a new tenant for six empty acres of land on West Atlantic Avenue, the developers have to make it past the toughest critics: the people who live, work and play in the area.
On Thursday night, people packed a conference room in Delray’s Public Library to hear from the three developers that think they have what the area needs.
Up first were Prime Investors and Developers, and plans for a business hub ‘The Epic,’ with space already pre-leased.
They were followed by Jones Delray New Urban showing off ‘Atlantic Village,’ which is anchored by a grocery store and bank, places residents say the neighborhood needs, with room for restaurants and stores.
