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

Joseph’s Classic Italian Market is slated to move their market to the beautiful Town Center at Boca Raton in spring of 2020. The new location will begin construction this summer and will span14,700-square-feet. The market will occupy the former Pinon Grill and Blue Martini locations.

We recently met with one of the most vibrant and energetic companies in Boca Raton. In 4 short years, SA Company has gone from a home-based business idea, to a successful e-commerce company occupying 60,000 square-feet of space. With a team that has already grown to over 200 local employees, they’re just getting started. Their CEO and Founder, Thomas DeSernia, recently earned a top spot on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. Keep an eye on them – big things coming!

The Modernizing Medicine team hosted the official ribbon cutting of its new corporate headquarters at the Boca Raton Innovation Campus. In 9 short years, their team has grown to 800 employees and they’ve committed to hiring 838 more.

We recently toured The Flamingo House. This cool and creative co-working space is in the warehouse district by Prosperity Brewers. If you haven’t checked it out – you should.  They also host an incredible (and free) art walk every third Friday called Art Walk ROC Urban.

Founded in 2013, Phoenix Tower International continues to grow at an incredible pace. Their recent acquisition of Syscom Telecom adds over 80,000 marketable small cell wireless communication sites in the U.S.

Boca based, Orangetheory Fitness opened a pop up gym at the beautiful Boca Raton Resort and Club. Through April, the Resort will offer the unique boutique fitness experience to guests.

We recently joined the 327 Royal Palm team for their official ribbon cutting and open house.  This luxury residential development in downtown Boca is impeccable. The 24 units range from 3,177 to 6,771 square-feet and range in price from $1.65 million to over $5 million.
