Del Mar, The Spot Barbershop, more | downtown West Palm Beach 

Developers of the mixed-use Nora District in downtown West Palm Beach scored four tenants. 

Cameron Mitchell Restaurants’ Del Mar, which offers Mediterranean cuisine, leased nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor space and a 2,000-square-foot patio; and Sana Skin Studio leased 1,800 square feet, according to the developers’ spokesperson. Women’s clothing and accessories store Mint leased 1,800 square feet, and The Spot Barbershop leased 1,300 square feet. 

Francis X. Scire Jr., who heads Nora District leasing, represented the developers. Keith Rogers of Restaurant Development Advisors represented Del Mar, and Daniel Pou of Horizon Properties represented The Spot Barbershop. Dillon Ross and Jon Paul Pirraglia of Ripco Real Estate represented Mint. 

The tenants will open at Nora’s first phase, said Ned Grace, co-founder of NDT Development, a Nora co-developer. Construction of phase one, a retrofit of warehouses along North Railroad Avenue, is expected to be completed early next year, and the tenants will move in shortly thereafter. 

West Palm Beach-based NDT and Miami-based Place Projects, led by Joe Furst, are developing the 40-acre Nora District in northern downtown West Palm Beach. It spans between Palm Beach Lakes and Quadrille boulevards, and between Dixie Highway and the Florida East Coast Railway tracks. Greenwich, Connecticut-based Wheelock Street Capital is a partner in Nora. 

The first phase will consist of 150,000 square feet of commercial space, 55,000 square feet of offices and a linear park. Subsequent development phases would include new towers on the north and south portions of Nora, including a 175-key hotel. New York hotelier Richard Born is an investor in the hotel. 

The developers plan to preserve single-family homes and townhouses at the center of the district.
