Uptown Boca Breaks Ground On Apartments, Movie Theater, Grocery Store


Staff report

Uptown Boca, which plans to bring 456 luxury apartments in a 150,591-square-foot mixed-use project is underway.

Construction on the $200 million pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development began last month during a ground breaking ceremony on the 38-acre site at Glades Rd. and 95th Ave. South in West Boca Raton.

The development team of Giles Capital Group, Rosemurgy Properties and Schmier Property Group in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital celebrated the occasion with more than 100 guests including Palm Beach County Commissioners Mary Lou Berger and Steven Abrams, U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch and President of West Boca Community Council and Chair of the Palm Beach County Zoning Commission Sheri Scarborough.

“We are pleased to bring a quality development project like Uptown Boca to this the community,” said Alexander S. Rosemurgy, CEO of Rosemurgy Properties. “With no new significant development in over two decades, this type of lifestyle component is long overdue in West Boca. It will truly create the complete shop, dine, live experience that this area deserves.”

Uptown Boca will feature a Lucky’s Market, Silverspot Cinema, Bolay, Chick-fil-A, and a variety of other shopping and dining options. Retailers are projected to open in summer 2019 with multi-family available in early 2020.

The Uptown Boca groundbreaking ceremony was followed by a reception featuring a “Taste of Bolay and Chick-fil-A.”

“This project is an especially meaningful project for us because we grew up in Boca Raton, and we are now raising our own children in this community,” said Brian Schmier, CEO of Schmier Property Group. “We feel privileged and excited to be able to bring such a unique, upscale destination to West Boca.”
