Landmarks commission praises Royal Poinciana plan

February 19, 2009 05:59PM

Members of Palm Beach’s Landmarks Preservation Commission today praised Sterling Palm Beach’s proposal for the redevelopment of the Royal Poinciana Plaza. Sterling had planned to turn the 12-acre area into a waterfront park, but the landmarking of the Royal Poinciana Playhouse complicated the proposal. The developer is now proposing a three-acre public park, which commissioners supported. But several commissioners criticized the height of two five-story condominiums proposed for the property.
