Employees were practicing, movers were hauling in furniture and landscapers were planting in the parking lot on Thursday.

1000 North will be a welcome addition to the restaurant community on the Jupiter waterfront said Chad Van Boven, the owner of Guanabanas, an outdoor eatery located just south of 1000 North.

“We have a casual, relaxed, flip-flops vibe. (1000 NORTH) sounds like it will be more formal. The more choices there are, the more people will come,” said Van Boven.

Jordan, who has a part-time home in the Bear’s Club off Donald Ross Road, is one of the founding partners of 1000 NORTH.

Others include local businessman Bjarne Borg, who owns the property; former New York Giants running back Tucker Frederickson; California winery owner Bill Terlato; Bears Club resident Raj Mantena; Jupiter resident Richard Rifkin; Palm Beach philanthropist Patrick Park; professional golfer Ernie Els; and Ira Fenton, a co-developer the Bears Club.

The restaurant on the Loxahatchee River is just north of Burt Reynolds Park on U.S. 1. Boating patrons can use the 326-foot-long public dock. Motorized boats can only dock on the outside of the eight-foot-wide dock for up to three hours, facing away from 1000 NORTH. No overnight docking is allowed, according to town records.

The dock was paid for by the developers of the restaurant.

The first floor of the 340-seat restaurant will be open to the public. There is an indoor and outdoor bar and restaurant seating.

The fee to join the private club on the second floor is $3,500 and the annual dues are $3,500. Private club membership will be limited to about 250.

The second floor will also have an outdoor patio for food and beverages. There will be occasional celebrity chefs.

Other restaurants in the area that have private memberships are located in Jonathan’s Landing, the Loxahatchee Club and Lost Tree Village.

Jordan joins Tiger Woods as the latest sports megastar with an eatery in Jupiter. The Woods, a restaurant in Harbourside Place, opened in the summer of 2015.

Indoor food and beverage sales at 1000 NORTH will be required to close at 2 a.m. Outdoor food and alcohol sales would end at midnight. Outdoor live music would require a special-event permit from the town.

Plans for 1000 NORTH — which measures 50 feet tall to the top of the tower — include a connection with Riverwalk, the town’s 2.4-mile pedestrian/bicycle waterfront lane from Ocean Way to the Jupiter Inlet that goes through Harbourside Place and along the Intracoastal Waterway and Jupiter Inlet.
