West Palm Point, a 24-story office tower, is expected to break ground in February 2024

New York-based Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation is advancing plans for a 24-story Class A office tower in downtown West Palm Beach, having recently submitted building permit applications to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Located at 801 South Dixie Highway on a 2.4-acre site owned by the West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency, the proposed tower aims to become a landmark gateway to the downtown area. The project, known as West Palm Point, is set to replace the existing Okeechobee "Tent Site" Parking Lot.

The application documents indicate that the planned structure will stand at a height of 338 feet above ground, which is an increase from the initially stated 308 feet. This would make it one of the tallest buildings in the city. Subsequently, permits for three tower cranes, each with a projected height of 460 feet above ground, were submitted on October 11, signaling steady progress on the development front.

Designed by acclaimed firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, with support from Nichols Architects, the tower's design incorporates sleek features to complement the city skyline. Its transparent glass facade, adorned with vertical mullions and fins, is intended to interact dynamically with sunlight. The building's open lobbies on the east and west sides will further integrate it into the surrounding urban environment.

The tower will offer 447,484 square feet of office and ground-floor retail space. Additionally, a 10-story parking garage will accommodate approximately 1,200 cars and 120 bicycles and will feature amenities like a rooftop café and green zones. This parking structure had initially faced public scrutiny for its visibility, prompting design revisions that included the addition of glass panels and mesh screens to better align it with the main tower.

West Palm Point aims to be more than just an office space. It will feature a pedestrian-friendly Paseo filled with retail stores and outdoor seating areas. A highlight is its 30-foot high ground floor lobby, envisioned as a grand entrance to the Paseo. Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation secured the lease for the entire block back in 2020 and anticipates tenant occupancy by Q3 2026. With the FAA permits under review, the project is expected to break ground soon, aligning with its construction timeline stretching from February 2024 to January 2026.
