No one wants a vacant Winn-Dixie blocking views of the Intracoastal Waterway, but residents aren’t pleased with what the plaza owner, Isram Realty, proposed: A 10-story building with 326 apartments.
Why must it be 10 stories? More traffic? How are we going to be able to get around town? Those are some concerns community members voiced at a meeting last week at Sterling Village between them and Isram. It was planned by the Boynton Coalition of Responsible Development, and was attended by about a couple hundred of residents.
But the meeting didn’t go as well as it could have. Isram representatives irritated many because of the vague answers they gave about the project.
