Chapel-to-condo developer proposes double the towers

After city opposition over a luxe condo tower project, a West Palm Beach developer went back to the drawing board and is now proposing two towers instead of one.

Al Adelson of Palm Beach Gardens-based GAK filed new plans yesterday for the Chapel by the Lake site at 1112 South Flagler Drive. One building would be 25 stories with 49 units and the other would be 24 stories with 47 units. He also asked for a delay of the final vote, which is slated for next Tuesday.

First Baptist Church, which owns the 3.2-acre amphitheater there, sold the site for $23 million to Adelson there for what was initially pitched as a 29-story condo building. Opponents of the project called it a “monstrosity” and said it would block views of the water, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Last month, West Palm Beach commissioners signed off on a project there, but said they wanted something less tall. [Palm Beach Post]Mark Maurer
