If all goes according to plan, FPL’s proposed corporate campus in Palm Beach Gardens will be built to withstand “the big storm.”

Florida Power & Light Co. just submitted plans for a 250,000-square-foot facility designed to withstand Category 5 hurricanes and 500-year flood risks. The building at 11500 RCA Center Drive would hold about 1,000 employees and feature solar panels, according to the Palm Beach Post.

FPL will keep its headquarters in Juno Beach. Property records show the utility company paid $4.9 million for a portion of the 86-acre site in March, but has been assembling the land since 2011.

The company has been busy buying and selling South Florida real estate. Over the summer it purchased nearly 1,300 acres near Royal Palm Beach for $19.3 million. It also recently listed a 69-acre waterfront property in Palmetto Bay, which could fetch about $50 million.  [Palm Beach Post] – Amanda Rabines
