Plans for West Palm Beach baseball stadium delayed

Commissioners will give another developer three months for new site proposal

West Palm Beach commissioners voted to give Boca Raton developer Parkside Commons the exclusive rights to develop a proposal for a site where the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals want to build a spring training complex.

For the next three months, Parkside Commons will develop a detailed proposal for a mixed-use project on a 160-acre site south of 45th Street between Haverhill Road and Military Trail.

In other words, the commission’s vote essentially delays any chance the teams have at getting permission to build the stadium by February, when the next spring training begins, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“We’ve got to work as hard as we can to keep baseball in South Florida. This is an obstacle to that. It’s a shame,’’ said Palm Beach County Commissioner Hal Valeche. [Palm Beach Post] – Christopher Cameron
