Open since 1958, the City Hall was the last public building to be razed to make way for the Town Square redevelopment project. On the first day of its demolition, the city held a watch party Nov. 15 at the historic Schoolhouse Children’s Museum. Town Square, a public-private partnership, will create a downtown for Boynton Beach with new civic buildings: combination library and City Hall in a 4-story building, Fire Station No. 1, amphitheater and parking garages. The estimated completion dates are in late 2019. The historic high school, which sits next to the Children’s Museum, is undergoing renovation that will enable it to host events on the top floor that can seat up to 500 and recreation classes on the bottom floor. The city’s share of Town Square will cost about $118 million. Demolition began in September when the Civic Center was bulldozed. Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star
