Real estate investment firm Crocker Partners has been chosen to lease the 164,000 square-foot Mizner Park Office Tower and the 103,000 square-foot Mizner Park Office Plaza, both located at Mizner Park in downtown Boca Raton, Fla.
A mixed-use center, Mizner Park encompasses 45 shops and restaurants, 272 residences, and entertainment and cultural facilities such as the Mizner Park Cinema, the Boca Raton Museum of Art and the Centre for Arts Count de Hoernle Ampitheater within a single city block.
It has been cited as an example of smart growth by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. “The mixed-use Mizner Park town center demonstrates how suburban communities can create vital downtowns by redeveloping abandoned shopping centers,” the EPA’s report reads. “Redeveloping the underused Boca Raton Mall into a community center removed a blighted property and helped revitalize the surrounding community.”
Mizner Park was completed in several phases throughout the 1990s with the help of city and bond financing.
Crocker Partners managing partner Thomas Crocker, who was the original developer of Mizner Park, asserted in a statement that the Mizner Park Office tower is “downtown Boca Raton’s premier building.”
“That’s why Crocker Partners located its headquarters here since the building opened in 1999,” he continued, “and why we are pleased to now take on leasing.”
