A vote on final approval to demolish the three-story Profile Art Gallery across Indiantown Road from Harbourside Place and replace it with a five-story building with 15 condominiums is scheduled to go before the Jupiter town council on Dec. 19.
The selling price of the individual condos is expected to be about $900,000.
Plans for the one-acre parcel, called Cornerstone, call for the first floor to be about 2,500 square feet of commercial space.
Parking for about 49 vehicles at Cornerstone would be below the building.
A public boat dock with about 14 boat slips is planned for the property on the southwest west corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1.
If approved, the new Mediterranean-style building would be about the same height as Harbourside Place.
The owners of the property, Jupiter Investments, are asking that the zoning be changed from commercial to mixed use. The registered agent of Jupiter Investments is Richard Witham.
The plan unanimously was recommended for approval April 13 by the town’s planning and zoning commission.
The town council is not bound by the planning and zoning commission’s recommendation.
