Boynton Beach, Fla. -- Jacksonville, Fla.-based Regency Centers announced the addition of Publix Super Market as the new anchor of Boynton Lakes Plaza, a 117,000-sq.-ft. neighborhood center in Boynton Beach, Fla.
Publix is relocating from an undersized 39,000-sq.-ft. store in a nearby center to open a new prototype of 45,600 sq. ft. in late summer 2012.
The store will occupy a former Winn-Dixie site that was closed along with 29 other locations in July 2010.
In addition, the center will undergo a redevelopment including the reconfiguration of the former 56,000-sq.-ft. Winn-Dixie site into anchor and side-shop space, new exterior facade, upgraded architectural components and parking lot improvements. All retailers will remain open during the redevelopment which is scheduled for completion in late summer 2012.
As part of Regency’s greengenuity program for sustainable green building and development practices, the construction will incorporate basic sustainable elements such as recycling building materials, installing heat reflective roof material and employing environmentally friendly plumbing fixtures, paint and coatings.
