Jupiter’s new Cinquez dog park earns rave reviews from visitors

Visitors praise Cinquez dog park, which opened Saturday in Jupiter.

JUPITER — Andrea LaMack and Ken Normoyle say they know a perfect dog park when they see one, and Cinquez Park fits the bill.

The Jupiter couple took their Goldendoodles, Layla and Jessie, to the newly opened park Tuesday morning to let them run around.

“This is an amazing dog park,” LaMack said of Cinquez, which features three fenced-in areas — for small dogs, large dogs and an ‘at rest’ area — and other amenities. “It’s sizable, it’s got the palm trees, the walking paths, showers.

“They have small and big (parks), and they have a third area so you’re always going to be able to rest one of the three areas so you keep the grass growing. That’s the biggest issue with the dog parks. They get puddles, and the dogs get dirty.”

Eileen Donohue’s 6-year-old rescue dog, Cody, joined Layla and Jessie at Cinquez Park on Tuesday to play. She drove in from Jupiter Farms to visit, and plans to take Cody there regularly.

“There’s nothing like this anywhere,” said Donohue, who usually walks with Cody in their neighborhood. “There’s one off Marcinski (Road), but it’s nothing like this. It doesn’t have all the facilities, all the different types of things for the dogs to do. It’s a gift.”

The dog park opened Saturday after weather delayed its completion by about three months.

The 13-acre, $3 million project at 2183 W. Indiantown Road includes the three dog parks as well as nearby walking paths, picnic tables, fishing, a dog-washing station, picnic areas and restrooms.

Courtney Lemasney of Tequesta stopped by for the first time Tuesday with Hunter, her 1-year-old Cockapoo.

Lemasney said she heard about the new dog park from a Facebook friend who raved about it, and decided to check it out.

“I have a friend who has a lot of dogs and said it was awesome,” she said. “So I said OK. I thought we’d try it out. It’s great. This is good for him, for the socialization. It’s nicely done.”

Joe Phelps, a Jupiter resident who was with his Maltipoo, Grace, said the facility was a big improvement over other dog parks he’s visited.

“It’s much better, much bigger,” he said. “It’s not as muddy. There’s grass everywhere.”

Jupiter A1A Ribbon Cutting

by Jessica Lovett

2GHO is pleased to be part the successful Town of Jupiter A1A redevelopment as a Complete Street serving all forms of transportation. The firm, in collaboration with the Town and design team, pushed for colored pervious pavement to aide in stormwater management and provide a beachside aesthetic. Several varieties of native beach perennial plants are integrated into a tropical palette of trees and palms to evoke old Florida. The project faced challenges from the many old underground utilities. The overhead lines were undergrounded but the above ground utilities have not yet transferred off the poles at the completion of the rest of the project. It was difficult to plant tall trees under live wires which were slated to be gone. The project brings a village feel and a comfortable level of safety and interconnectivity  for pedestrian and cyclists.

Harbourside Place Wins ULI's Regional Project of the Year

by Jessica Lovett

Experts judge Harbourside Place. Did they love it or hate it?

Bill DiPaolo

August 27, 2015

Harbourside Place, the $150 million entertainment center that has brought both praise and ridicule to Jupiter, was honored Wednesday night by South Florida urban planners.

The Jupiter complex won the national private project of the year in southeast Florida and the Caribbean.

“See?  I told you. Harbourside Place is a true urban project that brings substantial public benefit to the community,” said Nick Mastroianni, the president of Allied Capital & Development, the Jupiter-basedcompany that built the project on 10 acres on the northwest corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1

The Urban Land Institute is a nonprofit research and education organization with offices in Washington, D.C., Hong Kong, and London. Its stated mission is “to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide”.

Harbourside Place was selected over the four other finalists. They were: Frost Music Studio, University of Miami, Coral Gables; New River Yacht Club, Fort Lauderdale; Royal Caribbean Production Studio, Miami; and Vagabond Hotel, Miami.

Harbourside’s design as a destination set it apart from the other finalists, said George Gentile, senior partner at Gentile, Glas Holloway O’Mahoney & Associates, Inc. The company was the site planner and landscape architect on the project on the former site of the Burt Reynolds & Friends Museum.

“Harbourside has everything for the community to enjoy. Entertainment, food, hotel, music. Now you have Tiger Woods in there. And the Riverwalk provides public access,” said Gentile, who was one of the 650 people who attended the awards ceremony at the Marriott Marquis in Miami.

Critics have complained about increased traffic, noise and parking since Harbourside Place opened in December.

Proponents argue Harbourside Place provides waterfront access and brings jobs and tax revenue to the town.

Mastroianni said the award is vindication that the project is the right fit for Jupiter.

“The public and private connectivity is what makes the project work. This type of project was needed in Jupiter,” said Mastroianni.

Tiger Woods's New Restaurant in Harbourside Now Open

FIRST LOOK: What it’s like at Tiger Woods’ new Harbourside Place restaurant

Golfer Tiger Woods has got game — in the restaurant business.

More than 70 people streamed in the moment the velvet ropes were lifted from the door to his new restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, at Harbourside Place in Jupiter on Monday.

The 5,900 square-foot restaurant — a sleek and modern upscale sports bar with touches such as illuminated quartz bar and a U-shaped bar that is the restaurant’s focal point — was immediately buzzing with an eager crowd.

“We love going where the food’s good and the atmosphere is good, and this place has both,” said Karen Bush, who drove nearly 40 miles north from Delray Beach with her friend Nancy Braun to be among the restaurant’s first guests.

Woods was not at the opening for the general public, but several staff members said he hosted several VIP parties at the restaurant over the weekend before flying to the PGA Championship, which starts this week at Whistling Straits Golf Course in Kohler, Wis..

Staff members said he has been a regular sight at the restaurant over the last several weeks, looking over the final design details. He had told several people he would have delayed the restaurant’s opening had he won the tournament last week because he wanted to be in town when the first dishes went out.

Woods, who lives on a nearby Jupiter Island estate, also plans to make his worldwide headquarters next door to the restaurant, above Bravo! Cucina Italiana restaurant, according to sources at Harbourside Place, which has public and private docking space for boats. A spokeswoman says Woods may attend an official grand opening some time during the start of football season.

The restaurant, which focuses on New American cuisine, hopes to be a family-friendly place with a “sophisticated dining experience” at the water’s edge, according to the official release. It also hopes to be a happy hour hangout with a special happy hour menu, cocktails, and local craft beer offerings from breweries such as Boynton Beach’s Due South Brewing and Tequesta Brewing Company.

The menu reflected that ethos, with items ranging from a lobster and crab cake with a whole lobster claw, tuna “crudo” over arugula and fresh grape tomatoes and a cheese and charcuterie plate.

The main menu included items such as a rib eye steak sandwich with wine-marinated cheese and caramelized balsamic onions, rack of lamb and hog snapper.

“We can see ourselves eating here a couple times a week,” said Pam Gentner of Jupiter

Some foodie and golf fans came out in hopes of catching a glimpse of Woods, but stayed to be among the restaurant’s first guests regardless.

“I can’t wait to put it on Facebook so my sister and all my friends can see it,” said Claire Crews, 84, of Jupiter. “I just had to be here for the grand opening.”

Eat: dinner at Too Bizaare restaurant doesn’t reflect its name and that’s a good thing.

The menu fuses modern Asian favorites with small plates, so you could order pad thai lobster and your dining partner might opt for pizza, sushi or seafood pasta in a spot whose lagoon-style decor reflects the mangrove habitat at the edge of Harbourside Place.

After a stroll on Riverwalk, indulge in a cup of iced java at Coffee Culture Cafe or a fro yo from Johnny Swirls.

Harbourside update from the Palm Beach Post

Parking garages, hotels and retail stores going up at Harbourside in Jupiter

by Bill DiPaolo

Completion for Harbourside is scheduled next summer.

Allied Capital & Development is using the EB-5 program to help finance the $150 million Harbourside project in Jupiter on nine acres on the northwest corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1.

North Palm Beach-based Allied won federal approval three years ago from the Department of Homeland Security to develop Harbourside through an EB-5 regional center. Created in 1990 to attract foreign investment, EB-5 allows foreigners to contribute $500,000 apiece to U.S. businesses in return for them and their families to get visas, apply for green cards and become permanent U.S. residents.

The 360,000-square-foot development could generate about $750,000 annually in property tax revenue, according to town records.


  • Two, five-story waterfront hotels, 178 rooms with outdoor pool on third floor. Enclosed overhead walkway between buildings.
  • Two, five-story parking garages with 929 total spaces. Parking will be validated/paid, the same as City Place. Retail stores on bottom floors of parking garages.
  • About 66,000 square feet of retail, about 55,000 square feet of office and about 33,000 square feet of restaurant space with a total of 360,000 square feet.
  • Restaurants with outdoor seating.
  • Public amphitheater.
  • 15-foot-wide sidewalk connection to Riverwalk, 2.5-mile pathway from Jupiter Inlet to Ocean Way.
  • Marina with 22 private slips and 271 feet for public boat docking.
  • Water taxi stand and trolley stop
  • Harbourside has no residential development.

Exclusive Details Of Jupiter's Harbourside Place

by Dylan Roden

JUPITER, Fla. -- It's the $144,000,000 commercial development re-shaping the waterfront in Jupiter and only CBS 12 News is given exclusive access to the construction site.  Construction is halfway done on Harbourside Place and should be completed in exactly one year.  This is all happening on the northwest corner of Indiantown Road and US 1 in Jupiter.

"We get dozens of calls everyday, people wondering what's going on," said developer Nick Mastroianni.


Story by Peter Schaller / CBS12 News

The developer saves a major announcement about the project for CBS 12 News.  They've just confirmed the biggest leaser here is going to be a 4 star Wyndham Grand.  The popular Jupiter wine bar and restaurant Too Bizarre will also move in here, into a much bigger space.

Mastroianni said, "This is our home, Jupiter is home to our development company just about everyone who works for this company."

There will be many more restaurants with some outdoor seating, shops, and a marina with public and private slips.  The developer says the project is creating an estimated 2,000 jobs.

There have been some critics of the project, mainly concerned that it was taking too long to complete.  But the town council approved it 4 to 1 back in 2008.  Now, 5 years later, here it is.  It's a developer's dream fueled by international financing and its meeting the right economic forecast to make it actually happen.
