Maltz Theatre Expansion

Plans for a $25 million expansion to double the size of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre so it can “launch Broadway and national tours” have been submitted to the Town of Jupiter. The expansion comes two years after the former Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre on the northwest corner of State Road A1A and Indiantown Road underwent $2.5 million in renovations. The expansion added 62 extra-wide seats in a second-floor lounge, expanded the lobby, built executive offices on the second floor, installed 10-foot-high windows on the east side and boosted the size of the restrooms.

 

Preliminary plans for the latest expansion call for doubling the size of the theater facilities and boosting the size of the acting school on the 5-acre property. Town zoning requirements limit the height of the Maltz three-story addition to 50 feet. The Maltz employs 26 full-time employees, 11 part-time employees and about 100 actors, designers and other people called visiting artists.

 

Annual attendance at the Maltz doubled to about 100,000 this past year from about 10 years ago. Subscriptions, where customers buy tickets to about five shows a year, increased from about 2,300 to about 7,600 during that same time.

Jupiter Inlet Village (Love Street Project)

LoveStreetDevl.jpg
Love Street Development

After about three years of controversy, on June 7 the Jupiter Town Council voted 3 to 2 in favor of building a $30 million outdoor marketplace on the Jupiter Inlet, a project known as the Love Street Outdoor Project. According to developer Charles Modica this project, together with a possible second development on the nearby 10-acre Sunni Sands property, will create an ecotourism destination, a place where visitors can kayak, walk, bicycle and go to restaurants and other places without using their cars. The two Town Council members who voted against the project felt that developing the 4- acre love Street project will bring traffic and parking problems that the Inlet Village section of State Road A1A will not be able to handle. The concern is that Love Street will have the same impact as Harbourside Place.

LoveStreet.jpg

The love Street plan calls for 50,000 ft.² of retail/restaurant/office. A boardwalk, two waterfront restaurants and a small café with outdoor seating would overlook the Jupiter Inlet. A 30-foot wide roadway called the Lighthouse Promenade would start at A1A for vehicles. The Promenade would narrow as it approaches the Jupiter Inlet, where it would turn into a narrower, pedestrian-only walkway leading to a view of the 1860-built Jupiter Lighthouse. A Love Street connection to the Riverwalk, the town’s 2 ½ mile waterfront bicycle/pedestrian lane that runs from Ocean Way to the Jupiter Inlet, is planned.

The town is also considering improvement plans for Indiantown Road. Bicycle lanes, landscaping, crosswalks, medians and dropping the speed limit are being considered for the half-mile stretch from U.S. 1 east to A1A.

Parking & Traffic Issues

With new restaurants at Harbourside Place, including The Woods Restaurant and Calaveras Cantina, and the Cinepolis movie theater across the street in the Promenade Shoppes of Jupiter, traffic at the intersection of US #1 and Indiantown Road is expected to increase. However, the County is projecting that anticipated big crowds will not overwhelm the roads. Both roads are expected to be well under the approximately 4,900 vehicles per hour capacity.

Then there’s the parking issues, especially when there are major events at Harbourside Place. Mr. Mastroianni, the Harbourside developer, feels that a multilevel 600-vehicle parking garage is needed on the vacant Piatt Place property on the east side of U.S. 1 just south of Burt Reynolds Park. Also there’s going to be a parking problem on A1A when the Suni Sands mobile home park is developed and more businesses move into the town’s funky fishing village.

Did we anticipate when we bought our Jupiter Bay condominium in the lazy town of Jupiter that we’d someday wind up in the middle of a major city, with traffic congestion, multilevel parking garages and dozens of new restaurants?

Jupiter Inlet Boathouse

Plans for a historic boathouse on the Jupiter Inlet adjacent to the Suni Sands mobile home park have been approved by the Jupiter Town council.  They call for keeping with the historical design of the 6,000-square-foot building. The bottom floor will be a boathouse, which will require dredging. The second floor will be a recreation room. The third floor will be an observation deck. The second and third floors will be available for rent.

Hobe Sound resident Charles Modica, who bought the 10-acre 200 resident mobile home park in 2013 for about $17 million, plans to demolish the 1906-built boathouse and construct a new $3 million one. Modica plans to replace Suni Sands with a non-gated community with about a dozen cottages, a 200-room inn, retail shops and public docks.

 

Plans call for an April start to the demolition project and start of construction for the new boathouse. The work should take about 10 months.

Jupiter Inlet Village Construction

Work on an $8 million 18-month project to overhaul the three-quarter mile stretch of state road A1A from U.S. 1 south to Jupiter Beach Road began on November 12, 2014 and was completed in May, 2016.

The first phase of the project, costing about $3.7 million, took about seven months and included:

  • Burying above-ground power lines,
  • Installing new piping for drinking water and drainage, and
  • Improving underground utilities.

The second phase, which cost about $4.4 million, included:

  • New sidewalks;
  • Landscaped medians in staggered areas;
  • Turn lanes;
  • On-street parking along both sides of A1A near Parkway and Saturn streets;
  • Decorative crosswalks at Jupiter Beach Road, Parkway Street, Guanabanas restaurant, Saturn and Love streets;
  • 4 and 5-foot-wide bicycle paths and 6-foot-wide sidewalks on both sides of A1A; and
  • Decorative pedestrian streetlights 15 feet high (regular street lights are about 30 feet high.)
