Charles Modica, local developer, is self-confident that town administrators and the public will see that his proposal, to turn four acres on Love Street into an open-air marketplace, as the “best use for the land”. The Town of Jupiter planning and zoning commission agrees. The commission voted 6-1, on Nov. 10, 2015, to recommend that the $30 million plan be approved.
Contingent on how the $30 million Jupiter Inlet Funky Fishing Village plan is received, as an enhancement or as an atrocity; the proposal is up for a vote on December 15, 2015. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday evening, at 7 p.m, Jupiter Town Hall, before the town council.
Many people agree with the proposed development and more than 3,000 Jupiter residents do not agree with the proposed development. Many locals feel Jupiter has had enough development. These residents have signed an online petition ... one even commented, "Jupiter needs more development like it needs another lighthouse”.
Mr. Modica stated, “We are going to turn this area into an attractive, walkable development”. There will be a linking to The Riverwalk and a water taxi location, which will provide public access. The development fits in with the town’s inlet village concept and meets zoning and height requirements. The new businesses will create occupations.

Retail Space: 30,207 square feet
Office Space: 27,327 square feet
