County zoners reject application to put industrial warehouses at raceway

The Palm Beach County Zoning Commission on Thursday, April 7 voted unanimously not to approve an application that would replace the Palm Beach International Raceway with 2.1 million square feet of warehouse space.

Joni Brinkman with Urban Design Studio, representing Portman Industrial, said the applicant has purchased about 174 acres of the 186-acre site formerly known as the Moroso Motorsports Park on the north side of the Beeline Highway west of Jupiter Farms and north of The Acreage.

Brinkman said that the area is near other areas with industrial uses, including the Park of Commerce, which she said is rapidly running out of developable space. Also nearby is the North County Airport. She pointed out that the land under discussion is already zoned for industrial development.
