Macy’s former location at CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach

New York-based Related Companies won city approval to build a 21-story apartment building on the site of a five-story building in downtown West Palm Beach that Macy’s formerly occupied.

Macy’s vacated the five-story building at Related’s mixed-use CityPlace property in January 2017. The former Macy’s location is now used as a space for art exhibitions.

City commissioners approved a resolution allowing a taller structure on the site of the former Macy’s department store in exchange for Related’s agreement to charge below-market rents for 15 percent of the apartments.

Related has not submitted a site plan or a construction schedule for the planned apartment building, which is expected to have approximately 300 to 400 apartments.

Under its agreement with the city, Related would charge below-market rents for 15 percent of the planned apartments for 10 years. The maximum monthly rents for these apartments would range from $1,443 to $2,021.

Related’s agreement with the city also allows the company to lease a building just north of the former Macy’s store as office space rather than retail space if a bowling alley that now occupies the building moves out. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
