The Palm Beach Town Council approved a request by luxury goods retailer Hermès of Paris to occupy a new two-story building more than double the size of its current location.

Hermès is planning to relocate to Royal Poinciana Plaza from 240 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, where the retailer has operated since 1977. Hermès opened its 3,444-square-foot store on Worth Avenue before opening its flagship store in Manhattan.

The two-story Hermès building at Royal Poinciana Plaza will span 8,108 square feet. The plaza is in the late stages of a major renovation scheduled for completion in fall.

Cena Jackson, a spokeswoman for Hermès, told the Palm Beach Daily News the retailer is moving to Royal Poinciana Plaza to occupy a contemporary space with adequate floor space.

Gail Coniglio, the mayor of Palm Beach, said Hermès will become a “significant anchor” at Royal Poinciana Plaza that will draw shoppers to the retail property. [Palm Beach Daily News] — Mike Seemuth
