How likely is it that these pictures are going to match the finished product? From what I have read these have been made/drawn to attract donors. I am going to take a wait and see approach until the actual plans are released.

Actually, Mizner Park was named after Addison Mizner. The Architect that basically created the Spanish Revival architecture that Boca Raton is know for (and Palm Beach of course). So it would make perfect sense if this effort took on some design DNA from Mizner (and the unique affluent area FAU is a part of). There, history lesson over…back to sleep. ;D

I love the sign…it shows progress!

I'd love for these pictures to match the final product and considering that we live in Boca and the construction documents clearly state that they want to "establish a new urban venacular" it may very well end up this way. However, the two images on residential housing are so different… one actually looks like the current FAU buildings and one looks like Mizner. I guess time will tell. What I'd like to know what that small structure is – the one that looks like a lighthouse south of the west Innovation Village (IV) apartments….

I have my doubts...but if it brings in willing cash supporters, they can show whatever pictures they want!

The overall picture does not match the residential picture. I hope they do use the Mizner style. It would set FAU apart.
