Boynton retail, residential complex getting a paint job, modern update


Las Ventanas, the retail and residential development at Federal Highway and Woolbright Road, is getting an update — a new, lighter color and more modern feel.

Pollack Shores, which acquired the development in December, is painting the property, renovating the clubhouse, updating and replacing the pool furniture and refurbishing the inside of the apartments.

The clubhouse is still in the design phase. While the complex is now a dark beige color, the plan is to have the buildings painted in warm white colors mixed with a “coastal/hacienda feel.” The residential units are getting: vinyl plank flooring; new quartz counter-tops; new modern lighting, faucets, and ceiling fans, kitchen back-splashes and USB outlets.

“The improvements we’re making to Las Ventanas will add modern touches and style to our property in the heart of Boynton Beach,” Steven Shores, Pollack Shores President & Co-Founder, said in a statement. “Value-add acquisitions are a key part of our overall strategy at Pollack Shores, and when our residents come home, they will know they are living in one of the premier communities in South Florida.”
