The Real Deal Miami

Modern rejected in West Palm

August 12, 2008 11:17AM

The West Palm Beach City Commission rejected plans for the luxurious, 325-foot-tall Modern, a condominium complex planned for South Flagler Drive. The 3-2 vote was based on fears that it would usher in a slew of gigantic towers along the thoroughfare. New York-based Trinity Development sought to replace the hurricane-damaged 1515 Tower with a project nearly three times the existing building’s size. Its luxury units were to be about 7,000 square feet, with prices starting at $3 million.
