New tenant opens at Uptown Boca

There’s something exciting brewing in Boca Raton. New mixed-use lifestyle center Uptown Boca is getting ready to host a grand opening later this year. In the meantime, it’s welcoming new tenants.

On Nov. 13, retail tenant REI Co-op will open its first South Florida store at Uptown Boca. The 23,000-square-foot store brings quality outdoor gear for hiking, camping, paddling and more and is Uptown Boca’s first retail tenant to open. It will be joined in the future by a wide variety of tenants such as Chick-fil-A, BurgerFi, F45 Training, Paradise Grills, Amazing Lash Studio, Yoga Six, Zen Sushi, Mathnasium, Bolay, Lynora’s, Naked Taco, Olive U, Sloan’s Ice Cream, The Joint Chiropractic, Tide Cleaners and Tipsy’s Nail Bar.

REI Co-op will feature a bike shop with zero-contact shop services and will offer in-store pickup and online buying options. In the store, customers will also find health and safety protocols in place, including social distancing. The community is invited to celebrate the opening (click here for details) ahead of its planned local investment. REI plans to invest $10,000 in local outdoor nonprofits, through a $5,000 grant to the Florida State Parks Foundation, in support of Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, and a second grant to be announced at a later date.

Uptown Boca, from Schmier Property Group, Giles Capital Group and Rosemurgy Properties, in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital, covers 38-acres, 179,000 square feet of retail space and 456 Class-A luxury apartments. It’s located at 20940 Uptown Ave., Boca Raton on the corner of Glades Road and 95th Avenue South, east of State Road 7. To learn more, click here.

Drew Limsky



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. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
