It’s official: A 6,336-square-foot retail-office building will be included at the Toys “R” Us-Babies “R” Us superstore site on the east side of State Road 7.
The building will take the place of the previously approved 2,925-square-foot bank with a drive-through station.
The village council Thursday night unanimously approved the major site plan modification without any comments or discussion. With the decision, the special exception use for the proposed bank was canceled.
Donaldson Hearing, a principal at Cotleur & Hearing, a Jupiter landscape architectural firm, told the council the retail-office building will feature a contemporary style similar to the design features of the Toys “R” Us-Babies “R” Us store, including towers and recessed gray bands.
“It will be somewhat refreshing and a little different,” Hearing said. “It’s designed to tie in nicely with the Toys “R” Us building.”
Hearing said the structure should be completed by the end of the year. He said he anticipates two tenants to rent the space in the center of the Royal Palm Beach-Wellington business corridor. The development consists of two office buildings equalling 45,468 square feet, a 58,341-square-foot retail building and a 6,336 retail-office building.
The council also approved a parking variance to allow the developer, PEBB Enterprises, to add four cart corrals to the Toys “R” Us site.
