Label & Co. Developments is looking to get approval on a 46-townhome project in West Palm Beach on the site of a project that was once planned to be nearly twice as large, the Palm Beach Post reported. Label, which has also developed Boca’s Centra residential complex, has unveiled a smaller version of what had been an 82-condo and townhome project with 14,000 square feet of retail space. The project is dubbed Villas on Antique Row. “The housing market has been picking up steadily for the past two years, both locally and nationally,” said Label & Co. President Harry Posin. “This is an extremely, extremely popular area near the Intracoastal and downtown.” [Palm Beach Post]
