Jupiter Town Council members and Charles Modica (Love Street project developer) came to a mutually agreeable decision last week. Both parties agreed that the Love Street Development needed to be scaled back. The Council has rescheduled decision making until at least April 2016.
The project originally included a restaurant/fish market overlooking the Jupiter Inlet plus a 45-foot tall observation tower. The initial plan included 20 two-story buildings featuring retail, office and restaurants. Above the offices, shops and restaurants on the second level were to be small vacation rental apartments. Additionally, the plan included a parking garage to accommodate 200 cars.
Modica is quoted as saying “We’ll come back with a better project (for Love Street). Smaller can be better.”
The Jupiter Town Council has verbalized that they would like to see less density and more green space encouraging a pedestrian friendly atmosphere. Discussion also included preserving beach area and Modica was agreeable.
