Construction Updates and News
Atlantic Crossing is preparing to begin vertical construction of the first retail and office building at the northeast corner of Atlantic Avenue and NE 6th Ave. At the south end of the site, the initial underground parking garage is taking shape with the final concrete pours, which provide the post tension slabs for the buildings. At the north end of the site, further excavation for the underground garage will soon follow.
In preparation for utility work, a dozen mature Royal Palm trees were relocated, at Atlantic Crossing’s expense, from the eastern block (Atlantic Plaza) to city-owned properties. Construction activity continues to be staged to minimize inconvenience for neighbors and visitors. For pedestrian safety, covered walkways are in place along NE 6th Ave. and will continue along Atlantic Ave. between NE 6th and 7th Aves. The only street closure is NE 7th Ave. north of NE 1st. St., implemented at Palm Trail neighbors’ request, with bike and pedestrian access remaining open.
Beginning on January 6, 2020, the intersection of NE 1st St. and 7th Ave. will be closed until approximately February 7, 2020 to allow for the utility tie-in to the City’s existing facilities. This will impact vehicular traffic entering the north and west access points to Atlantic Plaza. (See map.)
During this period of time, access to and around the plaza will be as follows:
– Access from Atlantic Ave. will be from the south entrance to the Plaza, and vehicles can then proceed either east or west in the parking lot to gain access to the north parking areas.
– 7th Ave. will also have one lane open to accommodate vehicles heading north only from Atlantic Ave. and vehicles will be able to enter the northwest entrance from 7th Ave. Vehicles will NOT be able to exit at this northwest entrance.
– Vehicles will be able to exit the north entrance and proceed east along NE 1st St. to Veteran’s Park, then head south to gain access to Atlantic Ave.
– Vehicles needing access from the east of the plaza along NE 1st St. will turn south through Veteran’s Park to access Atlantic Ave.
Spanning two city blocks, the $300 million Atlantic Crossing mixed-use development is underway to revitalize the east end of Downtown Delray Beach’s nationally recognized Atlantic Avenue. Representing the largest private investment in the City’s history, this venture...
