There will soon be more places to live, shop and dine in West Boca Raton.

Uptown Boca recently celebrated a topping-off ceremony for the residential portion of the mixed use project, which recognized the hundreds of construction workers building the project.

The project is being developed by Schmier Property Group, Giles Capital Group and Rosemurgy Properties in partnership with Wheelock Street Capital.

“We are extremely excited to celebrate this milestone as we come one step closer to delivering Uptown Boca to the community,” said Alex Rosemurgy, CEO of Rosemurgy Properties. “We are looking forward to the community being able to experience a destination that will become one of Boca’s newest local hotspots.”

Located on 38 acres of land at Glades Road and 95th Avenue South, the project will feature seven residential buildings that are five stories housing 456 luxury rental apartment units. The units will vary in size from one bedroom to four bedrooms.

Apartments will feature granite counter tops, courtyard views, frameless glass showers and large walk-in closets. Amenities include a 24-hour indoor/outdoor fitness center, a resort-style pool area, a theater, a ride-sharing/co-working lounge, and outdoor CrossFit.

Rentals begin at $1,900s and pre-leasing is slated to begin this summer with move-in over fall.

“We look forward to celebrating the incredible work and dedication from Uptown Boca’s development and construction teams,” said Brian Schmier, CEO of Schmier Property Group. “This milestone means we are closer than ever to delivering the shop, dine, live experience to the community.

The project also includes 155,000-square-feet of retail and restaurants including: Recreational Equipment, INC. (REI), Naked Taco, Sloan’s Ice Cream, L’Eggspress, Tide Cleaners, Chick-fil-A, Bolay, F45 Training, Tipsy Salonbar, BurgerFi, The Joint, Sports Clips, Olive U Mediterranean Grill and Lynora’s Osteria. All shops and restaurants are walkable from the apartments.

A Silverspot Cinema will be located within the project. So will Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, a family owned concept focused creating the ambiance of a small mountain town and American food and drink that is opening its first Florida location. The theater and restaurant are free standing buildings located within the project.

It is still unclear what grocer will replace the space that was planned for Lucky’s Market, which has gone out of business.

“The Uptown Boca development team has worked exceedingly hard to create a quality mixed-use project that will add to the community,” said Rick Giles, President of Giles Capital Group. “The construction team has moved at a rapid pace to bring this project to fruition in a timely manner, and we can’t wait for residents to begin moving in. We’ve carefully curated our retail component of the project, and we are excited to offer our residents a walkable lifestyle close to a number of dining and entertainment options.”
