Boca’s skyline is getting another bump in height — a fourth downtown building will be allowed to rise to the maximum height allowed in Boca Raton‘s core area, the City Council decided Monday.
The vote was 4-1 in favor of the condominium project Tower One Fifty-Five, which will be on the 100 block of East Boca Raton Road. Mayor Susan Haynie was the lone vote against allowing the building to rise 40 percent higher — to 12 stories — than the nine-story height it was originally approved at two years ago.
The project is the first to benefit from looser rules for going higher. Tower One Fifty-Five will be the first to rise to the maximum height on a parcel smaller than 2 acres.
