Pilates, artisan pizza, kickboxing added to new west Boynton project

A pilates studio, a fast-food pizza chain and a men’s barbershop are among the recent additions of businesses set to open at a new shopping center west of Boynton Beach.

The highly-anticipated Cobblestone Commons at Boynton Beach Boulevard and Lyons Road has been under construction for about four months. One of the developers, Rod Sheldon, said he expects it to be finished in a year.

“We are right on track,” Sheldon said. “Residents are telling us to hurry — they are very excited.”

The more than 100,000 square-foot project is 95 percent leased and has four vacant spaces left, Sheldon said. Recent additions to the development include Club Pilates, Sports Clips Haircuts, 9Round kickboxing center, MOD pizza and a dental office. Three retail stores, a breakfast restaurant, a cellular store and a national restaurant are in the works. None has been announced because leases have not yet been signed.

Club Pilates has four other locations in Palm Beach County: West Palm Beach, Wellington, Boca Raton and Jupiter’s Abacoa. MOD pizza, described on its website as a “fast-casual” artisan-style eatery from Seattle, will be the first chain of its kind to open in Palm Beach County.

In January it was announced that Earth Fare, an organic and natural foods grocery store, and PetSmart would be the largest stores in the center. Earth Fare will be about 24,000 square feet and PetSmart about 22,000 square feet. An Earth Fare opened in Palm Beach Gardens on May 30, the ninth location in Florida.

A Wawa will move into the area as a stand-alone, 6,000-square-foot building. The company is currently building one on the northeast corner of Hypoluxo and High Ridge roads. Another Wawa, approved by the city commission in July, will be built on Woolbright Road and Congress Avenue. Wawa has five locations in Palm Beach County: Greenacres, West Palm Beach, Riviera Beach and two in Palm Springs.

A Chase Bank, Pollo Tropical, Mattress Firm, Lang Realty, David & Company Hair and Nail salon, Noire Nail Bar and Cucina Moderna restaurant are also moving into the shopping center. The Chase Bank and Pollo Tropical will have stand-alone buildings and the rest of the stores will be grouped into three separate plazas.

Sheldon said no opening date has been set, but when the time comes, he plans to open the entire shopping center to the public at once. He added that store openings will be staggered.

“It’s a race to see when each store will open,” he said.
