Katz & Associates, representing Lotis Wellington, a new mixed-use project on State Road 7, has secured a lease with Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a full-service sit-down restaurant, wine bar and Napa-style tasting room totaling 10,628 square feet.
The new Cooper’s Hawk will be situated on an outparcel at the main entrance to Lotis Wellington. Katz’s David Emihovich represented Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, and Roxanne Register represented Lotis Wellington LLC in the transaction. Lotis Wellington is slated to open in the fourth quarter of 2022.
“As there is a great need for upscale eating establishments in this area of Palm Beach County, we are pleased to have Cooper’s Hawk at Lotis Wellington, which will greatly enhance our continued leasing efforts,” said Roxanne Register, vice president of Katz & Associates. “Bringing the upscale restaurant and winery to this well-designed and high-end, mixed-use project is a winning combination.”
Lotis Wellington is set on a 64-acre site and services a trade area of more than 300,000 people. Featuring more than 450 residences, 118,000 square feet of commercial space and situated next to Wellington Regional Medical Center, Lotis Wellington will have built-in clientele, as well as attract residents from all over the area. In addition to Cooper’s Hawk, Register is negotiating five additional leases at this time. The project has eight restaurant/quick serve spaces and retail.
This is Emihovich’s seventh deal for Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant since he started working with them in October 2011.
