Boynton Beach Moves Forward With Mixed-Use Housing Project

The Boynton Beach City Commission recently approved a development project between the city, the Boynton Beach CRA and Affiliated Development to build a mixed-use, mixed-income workforce housing project called The Pierce. 

Located west of Federal Highway between Ocean Avenue and Boynton Beach Boulevard, The Pierce will offer 16,800 square feet of restaurant and commercial space, a minimum of 236 apartment units and a parking garage that will include 150 public parking spaces. Affiliated Development was the only proposer with an agreement with longtime Boynton Beach restaurant, Hurricane Alley, which secured the business’ future in Boynton Beach. 

Fort Lauderdale-based Affiliated Development outbid four other firms that responded to an RFP in December 2021 issued by the Boynton Beach CRA, including Related Group. Negotiations have been ongoing since then and all agreements have been finalized and approved by the CRA Board and City Commission.

“We are community builders and have a track record of working alongside our City and CRA partners to create a transformative projects that increase the quality of life for the city’s residents,” Jeff Burns says, CEO of Affiliated Development. “We have had our eye on Boynton Beach for a while and strongly believe that Boynton Beach is poised to reach its full potential.”

The Pierce will offer 50% of the project’s units at varying workforce housing levels to accommodate the demand for Class A living at attainable rents. The Pierce’s 8-story apartment building will offer luxury finishes, features and amenities, including a resort-style pool with private cabanas, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a co-work collective and keyless Bluetooth door entry. The Pierce will be built and certified to national green building standards.

The Boynton Beach CRA had assembled over two acres of property and underwent a competitive process that vetted the project’s merits and the developer’s strength. Affiliated Development specializes in public-private-partnership development and has several completed projects in Broward and Palm Beach Counties. Its next step is to begin the land use entitlement process. 

“If all goes smoothly, we anticipate getting underway during the mid-2023,” Burns says.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran.
