Local towns look to Palm Beach for business district inspiration

The communities that surround Palm Beach look to the town as an
inspiration when they look for strategies aimed at redevelopment or the
enhancement of business districts, architect Rick Gonzalez said at a
presentation last week. Gonzalez, who is the principal of REG
Architects, said towns are looking outside the box when they try to move
their business areas forward. According to Gonzalez, nearby projects
like the Northwood District in West Palm Beach, which is seeing an
ongoing revival, along with the Clematis Street revamping are models for
what Palm Beach itself can do — in looking to reinvigorate the area. [Palm
