The city could be getting its first Aldi grocery store.
A developer wants to build one at 3452 W. Boynton Beach Blvd. at Knuth Road, but the City Commission has to approve the plan.
This is separate from the Aldi store under construction just west of the city at Hypoluxo Road and Military Trail.
The commission will decide whether to approve a major site plan modification, rezoning and other requests for the new store.
First up is the city’s planning and development advisory board. They’ll vote Tuesday night and make a recommendation to the City Commission. Commissioners will likely vote in November.
The grocery store would be 17,880 square feet. The 2.04-acre site is home to a one-story, 30-year-old rundown office building, according to city documents.
Before this, the commission approved the site to be used as a day care for up to 200 children. After that, Aldi representatives spoke with the property owner about building a grocery store instead.
Aldi has several Palm Beach County locations including Palm Springs, Lake Park, West Palm Beach, Delray Beach and Boca Raton.
