Annexation of about five acres south of Indiantown Road just east of Interstate 95 is scheduled for an initial vote at Tuesday’s 7 p.m. town council meeting.
Known as Island Way Land Holdings, the property owned by Jupiter resident Josh Simon is now in unincorporated Palm Beach County, near the land known as the Hawkeye property. The Island Way property is planned for the extension of Island Way south of Indiantown Road.
Island Way is a two-lane road that winds north of Indiantown Road east of I-95 into Martin County.
“This extension will provide better connectivity and will relieve traffic at the intersection of Central Boulevard and Indiantown Road,” according to a report by the town’s planning and zoning department.
Approval would allow apartments and retail on the Island Way property. A final council vote is scheduled June 18.
Preliminary plans for the Hawkeye property call for about 1 million square feet of biotech and office space on a vacant 57-acre parcel bordering the east side of I-95 just south of Indiantown Road. No date has been set for the council to consider the Hawkeye plan.
