WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US

As someone who grew up calling Boca Raton home, I could not be more optimistic or supportive of the development of The Center for Arts & Innovation. The successful development of the Center represents an opportunity to not only advance our city, but the entire economy of the Gold Coast region.

KENNETH C. GRIFFIN • FOUNDER & CEO, CITADEL

I believe it is time for our community to bring a shiny new object to Boca Raton’s downtown to demonstrate our continued relevance as a player in the world of first class living, business, and play.

RICHARD L. SCHMIDT • SCHMIDT FAMILY FOUNDATION

This Center does much for many: It presents a shovel-ready project that will catalyze the local economy, provides meaningful foot traffic to local businesses, creates a destination venue that retains residents and attracts cultural and business tourists, compels 9-figures of investment, introduces a state-of-the-art facility that would be one of the first in the region, and further positions Boca Raton as the place to live, work and play along the Gold Coast – an ever-important factor in the race to attract new residents and business travelers to our community from around the country.

CLARA BENNETT • EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, BOCA RATON AIRPORT AUTHORITY

Boca Raton can be reimagined as a major cultural destination that will attract visitors regionally, nationally, and internationally. Notably, The Center is set to add 2.1 M hotel room nights the first 5 years. This is a huge win for The Boca Raton and our tourism market as a whole.

DANIEL HOSTETTLER • PRESIDENT & CEO, THE BOCA RATON
