On October 5, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) received applications for building permits at 801 South Dixie Highway in downtown West Palm Beach. This pivotal step brings the Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation closer to actualizing its vision for the city’s office market. The New York-based developer envisions a 24-story Class A office building on a 2.4-acre site owned by the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. This structure is intended to “serve as the iconic gateway into Downtown West Palm Beach” and is slated to replace the Okeechobee “Tent Site” Parking Lot.
The Federal Aviation Administration has issued permits for a new condominium tower that is set to become the next tallest building in Pompano Beach. The upcoming building is the already announced 32-story oceanfront Beach Tower, planned for 1380 South Ocean Boulevard, as part of the Ritz Carlton Residences Pompano Beach. This development is a joint venture partnership between Fortune International Group and Oak Capital. With approval to rise 353 feet, it will surpass the current tallest structures, the 334-foot-tall Pompano Beach Club towers, which have held this title since their completion in 1975. The Beach Tower, facing the Atlantic Ocean, will be joined by a smaller 14-story, 88-unit Marina Tower across the street along the Intracoastal Waterway, designed by Arquitectonica.
