Hudson at Waterway East Has Closed and Is Up for Sale

Here's more change headed for downtown Delray Beach's dining scene: Intracoastal waterfront restaurant Hudson at Waterway East has permanently closed its doors, and the space is available for a new operator to take its place.

In a space formerly occupied by the historic Old Calypso restaurant, a longtime Delray Beach seafood establishment that closed in 2013, industry veterans and business partners Joe McCullough and Rita Wilson teamed up for Hudson, which opened in December 2014

Today, the 7,000-square-foot building located at 900 E. Atlantic Ave. is listed for sale or lease with Boca Raton-based restaurant brokerage firm Prakas & Co., Hudson's exclusive real estate broker.

According to Prakas & Co. founder and broker Athan "Tom" Prakas, although the company is negotiating a deal with an undisclosed party, it is willing to "entertain offers" from other interested parties. The property is listed for sale at $7.9 million or leasable at $450,000 per year.


"We have huge interest from multiple operators," says Prakas.
