A $30 million renovation of West Palm Beach’s waterfront has backers
and fans touting it as a national model for green space design in an
urban setting. The 4.5-acre project involved more than 25 architects,
engineers, landscape designers and other professionals over six years.
Besides boasting wide views of the
Intracoastal Waterway, the waterfront at Flagler Drive and Clematis
Street has been transformed into a welcoming public space with
tree-shaded walkways, a pavilion, a visitor center, piers and a beach
at the sea wall. An aquatic theme pervades the overall aesthetic, said
project manager Joan Goldberg, and enthusiasts have likened it to a
Central Park for an oceanfront community. [Palm Beach Post]
