Tribune’s “Quarterly” hits the stands with lots of downtown Boca news
BOCA RATON – We hope everyone has had a chance to peruse the Downtown Boca Quarterly News, the special 16-page paper that the Boca Raton Tribune published to focus just on downtown places, faces and activities.
It can be found in newsstands all over the downtown. This quarter’s edition told about the fabulous “Meet Me on the Promenade” event, with stories from Mayor Susan Whelchel and Community Redevelopment Chairwoman Constance Scott. Also on the pages were articles about the Tastemaker event at Mizner Park, dining in the downtown, the Historical Society’s tour of the Addison Restaurant and noted artist Yaacov Heller, whose Gallery 22 is located in Royal Palm Place.
The Tribune has heard that we didn’t present enough news about Royal Palm Place in the Quarterly. Well, you’ll find lots more in the next Quarterly set to publish in January.
Here’s just a hint of what we’ll be talking about.
Royal Palm Place is one of South Florida’ hottest destinations, evolving from a charming neighborhood shopping center into a vibrant 14-acre mixed-use development, while still keeping much of the old-world charm that has been its signature throughout the years.
With so many food options, Royal Palm Place has become a “culinary destination” made up of a variety of international cuisines. Notable restaurants have established themselves within Royal Palm Place, creating what is referred to as “Restaurant Row”.
If food is the backbone of Royal Palm Place, then shopping is the heart. At Royal Palm Place you can find something for everyone, as it boasts a fabulous variety of boutiques, art galleries, jewelers, salons, spas, and an array of specialties and services. You can shop amid flowering gardens, Mediterranean fountains and tranquil piazzas.
In addition to an incredible shopping and dining experience, Royal Palm Place is home to 185 luxury rental residences, “Class A” offices, and prime retail space.
At the southwest corner of Royal Palm Place is a 65 foot high monument bearing a statue of famed architect Addison Mizner. The monument serves as a cultural center in downtown Boca Raton, offering a venue for events as well as being the home of the Boca Raton Historical Society’s “Walk of Recognition” honoring local philanthropists.
Affectionately called “The Monument Piazza”, live entertainment and special events are held throughout the year, including the “Boca Raton Fine Art Show” held in January and the “British Car Show” held each February, and is also home to the “Boca Raton Green Market”, which is held every Saturday morning from October to May.
