The Real Deal Miami

New developer on way for long-planned West Palm Beach hotel

The Palm Beach County Commission is due to select a developer for a new hotel project after previous proposals dating back to 2007 failed to get off the ground. Ocean Properties was to construct a hotel beside the city’s convention center, but it was never built after a series of problems, including a federal investigation into alleged corruption in the deal. The Related Companies, which developed West Palm Beach’s large CityPlace site, was suggested by a county selection committee as the new developer. [Sun-Sentinel]
