Mizner Park
Mizner Park is an upscale lifestyle center in downtown Boca Raton, Florida. Besides upscale shops, Mizner is also composed of rental apartments and offices. The Centre for the Arts at Mizner Park is a cultural center on the north end of the development, which is embodied by an amphitheater and the Boca Raton Museum of Art. The art museum, Robb & Stucky Interiors (formerly Jacobson's), and a Sunrise Cinema are the center's anchor stores. Cooper Carry designed the architecture of Mizner as a Mediterranean revival town center. Previously, the site of Mizner Park was a conventional enclosed shopping center called the Boca Raton Mall, which opened in 1974. Originally anchored by AMC Boca Mall 6, a Britt's Department Store and Jefferson Ward, the mall's viability had suffered from Town Center at Boca Raton's competition. The Boca Raton Community Redevelopment Agency established in 1980, played a significant role in conveying redevelopment of the site and to other regions of downtown. Crocker Partners, the developer of Mizner originally intended for a similar project, the McNulty Building, to be built on a more compressed site at Federal Highway and Palmetto Park Road. To this day, a parking lot occupies the space.
