Chapel-to-condo vote postponed until Jan. 21

West Palm Beach commissioners have delayed tonight’s scheduled vote on the controversial proposed condo project at the waterfront Chapel-by-the-Lake site until later this month.

In a move that should make the city’s college football fans happy, the commission tabled the vote on the potential development until Jan. 21, the Palm Beach Post reported. The developers, led by Al Adelson, had requested the delay. The group submitted revised project plans last month.

Adelson and his partners removed three floors from one of the two proposed condo towers and cut the number of units from 96 to 76. First Baptist Church has a pending deal to sell the 3.2-acre site to Adelson for $23 million. Condo prices would start at $5 million under the current development plan.

The delay allows Florida State fans who planned to attend tonight’s commission meeting for the Chapel-by-the-Lake vote to instead watch their Seminoles take on Auburn in tonight’s college football national championship game. [Palm Beach Post]Eric Kalis
