BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) (News App readers click here for full report) — A high profile Boca Raton office building closed all bathrooms for at least a day, requiring attorneys, financial consultants and other tenants to go outside when they had to go.

Tenants contacting say it’s the latest problem in an ongoing renovation that is frustrating those tied to multi-year, high cost leases.

One Boca Place is managed by Crocker Partners. The building is promoted on the Crocker website as “prestigious” with “a recently completed multi-million dollar renovation.” The website adds, “it is one of the largest and most recognizable buildings in Palm Beach County.”

The building’s assistant manager, Leslie Williams, told the issue was “nothing,” wouldn’t further comment, and tersely ended a phone call with earlier Tuesday.

We obtained the email she sent to tenants:

Dear Tenants –

The team is still working on the plumbing issue at One Boca Place.

Please be advised that we have Portable restrooms have been set-up in the North parking lot and ready for use

The management office will send updates to keep you informed.

Once again we apologies for the inconvenience.

After we published our article, Crocker’s marketing director, Gianna Pacinelli, called to say the company would be pleased to comment. She said the shutdown of all bathrooms in the building was the result of a blocked pipe under the building.

“We were trying to be proactive,” said Pacinelli, who also said the porta-potties were actually air-conditioned trailers. “They were sanitized,” she aid.

With a street address of 2255 Glades Road, One Boca Place sits near I-95 and Glades Road. Tenants say the renovation, ongoing for years, has led to bathroom issues, access issue, breathing issues, air conditioning issues, elevator issues, noise issues and more.

As companies realizing that working remotely will be viable long term for many professionals, Crocker is actively working to lease space in the building. It’s promoting “800 to 20,000” square foot opportunities. Among the amenities promoted by Crocker, “elegant lobby with soaring 4-story windows overlooking tropical landscaping and fountain” (not to mention Glades Road), “mostly column-free spaces in varying sizes, offering abundant natural light,” “efficient layouts with floor-to-ceiling windows,” and “building and monument signage may be available.”

Many of the region’s top law firms currently have offices in the building.
