Dunkin’ Donuts to demolish historic West Palm Beach home

A historic 83-year-old home near West Palm Beach’s antique row shopping district is facing  demolition to make way for a Dunkin’ Donuts parking lot.

If a special permit is approved, the Spanish-style house, located at 412 Avenida Alegre, will be razed so that a neighboring Dunkin’ Donuts can expand its 11-space parking lot.

However, because of the tight space, which often forces Dunkin’ customers to use residential driveways to turn around, many locals are in favor of the demolition, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“From 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., it’s a treacherous situation,” Avenida Alegre homeowner Eddie Wood said. “I think a parking lot will make a big improvement as far as safety on the street goes.”

Dunkin’ Donut’s request will be heard during at a July 10 zoning board of appeals meeting. [PBP] Christopher Cameron
