As West Palm Beach prepares to sell its old city hall building, the city has received four proposals to turn the waterfront property into a downtown hotel, the Palm Beach Post reported. Three of the four proposals are for buildings 12-stories or higher. The sale will also include a city-owned parcel next to the hall — the former site of the Helen Wilkes hotel.

Navarro Lowrey Properties of West Palm Beach, with Hyatt Hotels and Concord Hospitality, a North Carolina-based hotel management company are proposing a $3.1 million, five-story, 205-room Hyatt hotel. Kolter Group, a condominium developer is proposing a $12 million, 15-story building with at least 120 hotel rooms, 260 residential units and ground floor retail. Song + Associates, with Crocker Group and the Carlton Fields law firm are pitching a $5 million, 12-story building with 200 rooms and lobby retail space. And finally Hisham Ashkouri Architects/Developers of Newton, Mass are proposing a $10 million, 15-story building and two smaller buildings with hotel and gallery space.
