Menin plans The Linton at Delray

Menin Development has ideas for the future of Delray Beach and they’re starting to come true.

The Real Deal reports that the Delray Beach-company recently won initial approval to develop its shopping center into The Linton, a proposed mixed-income apartment complex at 510 West Linton Boulevard 100. The 78,399-square-foot building would become a five-story 277-unit apartment.

The shopping center, Linton Commons, which Menin purchased in 2016 for $33 million, currently has a Guitar Center and a PetSmart. The former filed for bankruptcy late last year and the latter has been paying reduced rent since the closing of Orchard Supply Hardware. Linton Commons’ PNC Bank, AT&T, Cream and Chipotle would be left intact by the development.

The Delray commissioners approved zoning rule changes to increased builting height from 48 feet to 60 feet, which the company says allows for architectual features on the roof. The company also plans for units to have ceiling heights of 9 to 10 feet.

The Linton would include a third-story amenity deck on top of a 494-space garage with a gym, clubhouse, cabanas, swimming pool and spa. It’s designed by Richard Jones Architecture. The building would feature studios as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom units, 20% of which will be offered at below-market rates for tenants with incomes that are 20 to 120% of the area’s media income.

The rent rates prove Menin’s committment to Delray, where the company is also developing what’s set to become the state’s largest food hall. The Real Deal notes that Menin paid $7.3 million last year to acquire restaurant Johnnie Brown’s on East Atlantic Boulevard.

“Delray has a significant housing shortage, and with 98% of the city already built out, underutilized properties need to be redeveloped as residential,” Menin president and general counsel Jordana Jarjura told SFBW. “This location [for The Linton] is perfect for residential given its proximity to I-95, the Downtown, mass transit and the heavily saturated commercial corridor surrounding it. Menin is focused on providing high-quality, sustainable development projects that enhance the city’s current landscape to meets its present and future needs.”

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.
