According to the Boca Tribune, as a proposal from FCI Residential is currently undergoing the final stages of review by the City of Boca Raton, the downtown area could soon be getting a couple of new apartment buildings.
“Camino Square is really the first true redevelopment of a blighted and under-utilized property in Downtown Boca Raton, which is consistent with what the CRA was originally formed to do,” FCI Residential Managing Director Juan Porro said.
Camino Square’s architect, Beatriz Hernandez of MSA Architects, also designed the Camden Boca Raton apartments. She believes that the designs for the proposed buildings will fit perfectly into the city’s atmosphere.
“Camino Square is a modern interpretation of Addison Mizner’s architectural style,” she said. “It offers distinctive features of traditional classical architecture in terms of its articulation and the flexibility and openness of its spaces. It has been designed to blend in nicely and complement the city skyline.”
“The proposed apartments will generate less evening traffic than if the shopping center was reactivated in its current setup,” Camino Square’s traffic engineer John Donaldson said.
Apartment buildings could mean more traffic for the area, however, those involved with the project stress that the added vehicles to the roads should not be too much of an issue.
