The Pelican Club is starting to take shape on the Jupiter Inlet.

The spot, formerly the Rustic Inn crab house, is expected to open in March 2019 as an upscale venue for weddings and other events.

Yellow dumpsters are outside and a 6-foot-tall fence is around the building next to Jetty’s Waterfront restaurant. A building alteration permit has been submitted to the town, according to Jupiter records.

“It will be spectacular,” assures Michael Lessing, chief executive officer of The Lessing’s Hospitality Group, the Great River, New York-based company that is leasing the building from developer Charles Modica.

“Guests will have a beautiful view of the waterway, the Jupiter Lighthouse and boats passing by. The traditional Florida design will have light colors, wood floors and lots of windows,” he said.

The company, started in 1890 by the Lessing family, operates 14 wedding and catering venues, nine full-service restaurants and a historic hotel built in 1751 in the northeast United States. The company caters about 1,000 weddings a year, said Lessing.

The main reception will fit about 450 people for weddings and other events. There will not be a restaurant, said Lessing.

A wedding for about 150 guests on a Saturday night at The Pelican Club would start at about $25,000 for the venue, catering and beverage service. Other services — food, entertainment, flowers — are additional.

The Pelican Club is expected to employ about 25 full time and about 50 part-time employees, Lessing said.

The Lessing’s company has signed a lease for the former Rustic Inn with Charles Modica, who owns the former Rustic Inn building on the four-acre parcel. Modica bought the property for $8.3 million in 2016.

The property is just north of Modica’s 4-acre parcel on Love Street. There, Modica has won approval to build a $30 million outdoor marketplace featuring restaurants, offices and shops. Construction is expected to start this summer.

Modica also owns the 10-acre parcel that was formerly the Suni Sands Mobile Home park. The land on the Jupiter Inlet has been cleared. Building plans have not been submitted.

While major changes are planned for the inside of the former Rustic Inn building, the footprint of the 22,000-square-foot structure will remain the same. The building will be remodeled, not demolished, said Lessing.

Rustic Inn, famous for its garlic crabs, opened in early 2015. It closed last May.

Before that, the building was a Bubba Gump Shrimp Company restaurant. With indoor and outdoor seating for about 460 and a striking view of the inlet, the movie-themed restaurant drew strong crowds when it first opened in April 2012.

But the crowds dropped off quickly. The restaurant owned by Houston-based Landry Inc. closed in July, 2014.
