Boca’s Economic Development Report

By: Jessica Del Vecchio Economic Development Manager Special to the Boca and Delray newspapers

Your success is our success  

The Office of Economic Development recently launched a new initiative called the “Success Tour.” For our first tour we selected two companies from our corporate community to be recognized and congratulated for their valuable contributions to our city. For our first stops we selected Phoenix Tower International and Nature’s Bounty. The Phoenix Tower team opened their doors and shared their incredible story of growth, teamwork and giving back. And the Nature’s Bounty team gave us a tour of their impressive manufacturing facility. Our team, along with the Mayor and Council members presented the CEO’s of both companies with plaques of appreciation.

The Park at Broken Sound

Home to a majority of Boca’s corporate headquarters (and now, residential) – the Park at Broken Sound hosted their official ribbon cutting last month. The new signage is a perfect example of how beautiful this 700-acre planned mobility district really is. In addition to this event, Altis of Boca Raton, the newly constructed rental complex also located within the Park at Broken Sound celebrated their official grand opening.

Business Briefs

Boca Raton Airport is getting ready to open their newly constructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Facility. This facility will allow our city to become a gateway to international travelers visiting Boca Raton for both business and pleasure.

The recent opening of the new I-95 interchange was celebrated with an official ribbon cutting. With 28,000 students and faculty members traveling to and from their campuses at any given time, both for Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College, this new interchange will benefit the residents, corporate community, and universities by improving traffic flow to and from this area – as well as help to alleviate the congestion on Glades Road.
