The first renderings of Jeff Greene’s planned two-tower project in West Palm Beach have been released, revealing an ultra-modern style with large swaths of green space.
The 30-story towers, designed by Arquitectonica, would sit on a large retail podium at 550 North Quadrille Boulevard in downtown West Palm. The newly released renderings also come with an official name: One West Palm. Until now, the project had been named 550 Quadrille, after its address.
Together, the towers would house roughly 829,000 square feet, of which 410,000 square feet would be dedicated to offices. The rest would be occupied by a 200-room hotel, 76 residences with access to hotel amenities, and a variety of other features like restaurants, a conference center and ballroom, and a fitness center and spa.
Renderings show the towers would have a segmented design, with sections of several stories sitting catty-corner on top of each other. The rooftops are draped with greenery, as is the podium’s exterior.
Greene, a billionaire investor and resident of Palm Beach, filed plans for the project with city officials earlier this year. Several real estate professionals in that area raised concerns over Greene’s plans, including claims that its density isn’t a match for the neigborhood, and that the downtown office market can’t absorb another 410,000 square feet of space. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
