What is Downtown Boca?
Downtown Boca is comprised of 344 acres of walkable, pedestrian-friendly shops, businesses, restaurants and living spaces. It was here that famed 1920's architect Addison Mizner established his signature Spanish-Mediterranean style, which went on to become the hallmark of our buildings. Many of them have been meticulously restored to their former glory, and new construction here imitates the unmistakable Mizner style. The magnificent Mizner Park, one of the earliest successful mixed-use developments in the United States, was named after the famous architect, known for traveling between Boca and Palm Beach with his mischievous pet monkey, Jonnie Brown.

The Future of Downtown Boca Raton
The next decade would see significant residential and office growth in the downtown. Demolition of existing buildings made way for new projects which were inspired by urban design characteristics and would follow the design guidelines carefully defined in Ordinance No. 4035, thereby, keeping in line with the spirit and intentions of the CRA vision. Through the early part of the millennium and through the years of the recession, additional amendments to the DDO were adopted by the City and incorporated in response to market demands as the downtown came alive. After two decades of development in the downtown, leaders decided it was time for a review of the redevelopment area. On September 9, 2008 the City Council approved an agreement with Urban Design Associates (UDA), a firm that specialized in the revitalization and expansion of cities worldwide. UDA’s purpose was to build community consensus through design by hosting workshops, developing common goals and finding ways to coordinate the design of individual buildings with public spaces, neighborhoods and regional culture. These goals were to be realized through the development of revised design guidelines for downtown buildings. Work on these revised guidelines ultimately resulted in the Interim Design Guidelines (IDG) which were adopted on November 12, 2008. The IDG would improve the design of downtown development projects by creating a continuous, interconnected network of congenial, pedestrian-oriented streets and public spaces through improved articulation, or varied building heights. In order to address the public concerns over large bulk and flat top buildings which lead to a loss of scale and character, the IDG outlined a method for determining building setbacks and height requirements based on street types. In allowable areas, and with certain criteria met, eligible buildings would be allowed additional height, based on greater setbacks and without an increase in building volume and floor area. These optional guidelines, if used by developers, would create articulated facades, a varied skyline and improved streetscapes. The first building project completed as a “test case” under the new Interim Design Guidelines was the 208 apartment complex, the Mark at Cityscape located at 11 South Plaza Real. While the IDG guidelines were implemented on the new project, the improved articulation and building design were met with mixed reaction at a subsequent CRA public workshop in April 2015. With professional and public input, the CRA and the City are continuing their efforts to move forward with the creation of a Pattern Book for enhanced downtown design that can be implemented to carry on the vision of the CRA.
