City officials gave the final OK on Tuesday to pay about $118 million to redevelop 16 acres off Boynton Beach Boulevard into a pedestrian-friendly, town center to live, work and play.
The Town Square project calls for the historic high school to become a cultural center with a 500-seat auditorium and restaurant space, a fire station, library and City Hall in a four-story building, an amphitheater, parking garages, apartments, retail space, a hotel and a police headquarters off site.
The Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center will remain. Also, a district energy plant will provide cold water for air conditioning for the entire project through a central chilled water plant.
