Developer Charles Cohen proposed a downsized redevelopment of the Carefree Theatre site on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach.

Cohen proposed the development of 58 apartments, down from 90, and a complex of movie theaters with 600 seats, down from 800.

His proposal calls for construction of two four-story apartment buildings, one with 32 units and the other with 26.

Unchanged from his previously proposed project is a plan to build restaurant space and underground parking.

Cohen, a New York developer and a part-time resident of Palm Beach, bought the Carefree Theatre property at 2000 and 2100 South Dixie Highway three years ago for $3 million.

Since then, he has proposed several versions of a redevelopment project that city officials rejected.
