UPDATED, Jan. 9, 4:28 p.m.: A construction worker was injured in an accident at developer Jeff Greene’s One West Palm project.
West Palm Beach Assistant Fire Chief Brent Bloomfield told The Real Deal the patient was in stable condition and was transported down via crane on Thursday afternoon to be transported to a trauma hospital. The Palm Beach Post first reported the news.
Bloomfield said a rebar wall that was being built fell on the worker on the 13th floor of the construction project at 550 North Quadrille Boulevard.
The mixed-use development is slated to have two 30-story towers with hotel rooms, residential units, retail and office space. Construction had reached the 13th floor, Bloomfield said.
Records show the developer, Greene’s 550 Quadrille LLC, filed a notice of commencement for the project in October 2018. Kast Construction is the general contractor.
Greene’s LLC paid $15 million for the site in March 2014.
