Construction on One West Palm, a 30-story, mixed-use complex located at 550 Quadrille Boulevard, has resumed after months of halted progress due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Palm Beach Post, the $250 million twin-tower project is slated to feature 328 apartments in one tower plus 200,000 square feet of office space and a 201-room hotel in the second tower. Jeff Greene, a Palm Beach real estate developer responsible for the complex, is seeking city approval for design tweaks he said will improve the project.
Harvey Oyer, a Real Estate partner in the West Palm Beach office of Shutts & Bowen LLP, represents Greene. Harvey is optimistic the city and Greene can come to an agreement on the office space use, possibly through an ordinance providing for the workforce cash compromise. According to Harvey, everyone in the city gains by having a finished building on the city’s tax rolls and filled with people and businesses spending money.
The project “is a much needed economic boost to the downtown merchants, who continue to suffer during the pandemic,” Harvey said. “It’s also a welcome addition to the north end of the downtown, where redevelopment and property values have lagged behind other parts of the downtown.”
