West Palm Beach officials recommended a zoning change that would allow a mixed-use development at the former site of the Carefree Theater, owned by developer Charles Cohen.

A three-hour hearing of the West Palm Beach Planning Board resulted in a recommended approval of the rezoning with minor changes last week, according to The Palm Beach Post.

The proposal is for 58 housing units, 6,900 square feet of restaurant space, 9,000 square feet of retail space, a six-screen and a 600-seat movie theater, the Palm Beach Post reported

The proposal is a scaled down version of what Cohen originally intended.

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

His Cohen Brothers Realty Corp. also owns the Design Center of the Americas in Dania Beach and opened the Le Meridien Dania Beach hotel earlier this year.

Cohen is also a film producer.
