Mayor: Project Fulfills Need for More Class-A Office Space, Making WPB More Attractive to Business
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (April 18, 2019) –
West Palm Beach Mayor Keith James joined developer Jeff Greene and other dignitaries in breaking ground for One West Palm, the first Class-A office tower to be built in the City of West Palm Beach in more than a decade. Located at 550 Quadrille, the project is expected to bring to our City 200,000 sq. ft. of Class-A office space, 200 hotel suites, 325 luxury apartments, 25,000 square feet of meeting space, 15,000 square feet of retail space, a spa, theater and indoor tennis courts. The project team includes locally-based contractor KAST Construction and award-winning Arquitectonica Architects.
“With more Class-A office space now under development, this project will help transform downtown into a desirable office destination for leading companies throughout the U.S.,” said Mayor James. “One West Palm helps ensure our City’s future, its ongoing vibrancy, and future opportunities for our residents, visitors, and businesses.”
The City of West Palm Beach is one of the South Florida region’s most dynamic and ever-growing metropolitan areas. West Palm Beach was named by INC Magazine as one of the top 25 cities in America in which to do business.
“I do believe this represents an opportunity for the future,” said Mayor James. “At West Palm Beach, we are creating a community of opportunity for all, and this project opens up a world of possibilities for our residents, especially in job creation.”
“The word is out about West Palm Beach. There are a lot of businesses wanting to do business here, and that vibrancy is going to continue to grow,” said City of West Palm Beach Economic Development Director Christopher Roog. “This project fulfills a need for more Class-A office space, which is needed for our city to be competitive with other cities in the region.”
