Tonight’s public hearing on a plan for three six-story residential buildings on Jupiter’s waterfront has been postponed at the request of the property owner.
No date has been set for a new hearing.
Denial of the plan is recommended by the town’s planning staff said.
“The proposed building mass, height and scale are not compatible with the surrounding buildings,” according to the planning staff’s report.
Fisherman’s Wharf planners counter the project will enhance the neighborhood on the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway just north of the Indiantown Road bridge, across from Harbourside Place.
“(Fisherman’s Wharf) will serve to better protect the adjacent residential property and provide additional interest and a stimulation to the adjacent commercial plaza and compliment the commercial base,” according to the proposal.
The buildings would be about as tall as Harbourside Place and about twice as high as the town code allows.
Each building would have 12 residential units, two per floor, on the five-acre vacant parcel.
No commercial space is planned.
