Two developers are vying for 5 acres of industrial land in West Palm Beach to build a mix of apartments and commercial space.

Peter and Julie F. Cummings are proposing to build a 173-unit residential building with 3,700 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a 290-space parking garage, according to the South Florida Business Journal. A West Palm committee will review their plans this week.

The industrial site at 1630, 1710, 1940 and 1980 Clare Avenue houses 55,520 square feet of industrial space. Murphy Construction Co. and Jamco Inc., which are both managed by John and Martin Murphy, Victor Martinelli, Lisa Lettenmaier and Joseph Mendia, own the property.

Peter Cummings is the founder of Palm Beach Gardens-based Ram Realty Services and executive chairman of the Platform.

Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects is the project architect.
