Staff report

Delray Plaza will soon have a Whole Foods Market 365, First Watch and Zoes Kitchen.

The new additions are part of Georgia-based commercial real estate development firm, S.J. Collins Enterprises redevelopment plans for the 85,000-square-foot shopping center located at 600 W. Linton Blvd.

“The redevelopment of the underutilized Linton International Plaza provides a much-needed and convenient location for new and healthier grocery and retail shopping options west of Federal Highway,” Mayor Cary Glickstein said. “We appreciate this development team retaining local businesses into what will be a vibrant, neighborhood shopping destination for locals and visitors alike.”

The Whole Foods Market 365 is a more affordable version of Whole Foods. The store will occupy a space formerly utilized as a Palm Beach Gym.

The developer is assisting with the relocation efforts for some of the center’s existing tenants.

Pet Supplies Plus, Pollo Tropical and Subway as well as several other shops and offices will remain at Delray Plaza.

“We are excited to launch the revitalization efforts at Delray Plaza and truly appreciate the engagement from local officials in the process of the redevelopment of this location,” said Jeff Garrison, partner at S.J. Collins Enterprises. “Whole Foods Market 365, which will provide a new grocery shopping experience centered on making healthy living easy, is a great addition to the neighborhood development, and several other first-to-market tenants will be announced in the future.”

Construction is scheduled to begin in November. Portions of the site will remain open throughout the renovations and construction. The new shopping plaza is anticipated to open in the first quarter of 2019.
