Attracting Millennial Workers to Florida: Transit Could Help

By Nicole Martinez
March 16, 2017

A rendering of the West Palm Beach station for the Brightline, a privately funded rail line, with service projected to begin between Miami and West Palm Beach in mid-2017.

The Brightline, set to begin service this July, has prompted a unique opportunity within southeast Florida for transit-oriented development projects, as the privately funded rail service will connect Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. And with over $2.2 billion in development projects now underway in West Palm Beach—including residential development and two mixed-use cultural marketplaces—the city is poised for increased economic growth.

If you've driven through the intersection of Fern Street and Tamarind recently, you might have noticed the intersection has undergone a transformation into a vibrant public space. Dreyfoos School of the Arts students, volunteers and City staff spent last weekend turning the asphalt into an incredible work of art during an 'Intersection Repair' project! The project is designed to slow cars and improve street safety.

They painted a winning design titled "Walks of Life" that was initiailly created during a City-sponsored competition among students in the Visual Arts Department at Dreyfoos. The winning team includes Ania Johnson, Jessica Raise, Megan Tachev and Dani Walters.

BEST GUIDE: farm events, from suppers to hipster jams

Liz Balmaseda l Palm Beach Post

As the local harvest season nears its winter peak, a new organic crop has sprouted in Palm Beach County. It doesn’t grow from the soil, but from the collaborations between farmers, chefs and food enthusiasts.

There’s a bumper crop of farm-hosted and farm-inspired events this season. From multi-course, chef-created feasts to casual, catered brunches to farm tribute-like dinners to farm-hosted hipster music jams.

Prices range from free to splurge-worthy.

Currie Park waterfront idea stretches ‘floating plaza’ to Intracoastal

WEST PALM BEACH — A ‘floating plaza’ stretching into the Lake Worth Lagoon serves as the focal point for Currie Park’s redevelopment, under a master plan linking the public waterfront with adjacent parcels assembled by developer Jeff Greene.

This one-of-a-kind floating island in Palm Beach, Florida, uses the same technology employed in the construction of submarines to create a beautiful civic space in the middle of the lagoon. Carlo Ratti Associati designed the Currie Park waterfront to sit partly below sea level and include a pool, an auditorium, a water plaza and a restaurant with its own hydroponic cultivations.  Read More

The Warehouse District

  • foodie district

September 25, 2016  Palm Beach Post  

Coming Soon!

Foodie central: Village for indie vendors to rise in West Palm industrial zone.

Palm Beach County’s foodie city of the moment is about to get more tasty. West Palm Beach might soon be home to a new food and drink-centric district that’s in development along the city’s industrial zone.

The Warehouse District, a sprawling complex of vintage buildings, is shaping up to be an eclectic urban village of food and beverage creators and vendors, artists, fitness buffs and other indie entrepreneurs. Developers say they hope to open sometime in December or January.

The District’s 85,000-square-foot area includes about eight buildings that were constructed between the 1920s and the 1950s.

Beebe envisions a district akin to Miami’s hip, artistic Wynwood neighborhood, “with a heavy focus on local entrepreneurs, culture, art and food – but not food in the big business kind of way.” Opening Q1 2017.

Build it and they will come? Maybe.

Brand it and “it happens,” says activist artist and cultural warrior Rolando Chang Barrerro.

Earlier this month, Barrero opened his third Palm Beach County gallery and studio in the midst of five stagnant blocks east of I-95 on Belvedere Road and declared the mostly moribund retail strip “West Palm Beach’s Cultural Corridor.”

The christening party for what Barrerro and his partners hope will be Palm Beach County’s newest arts district starts Friday with three days of events behind the fresh white facade of Barrerro’s 4,000-square-foot Box Gallery.

Psst … Palm Beach County, Florida Is Actually Cool!

Trendy cork-heads hit Wine Scene in West Palm Beach.

Isn’t Palm Beach County, Fla., overrun with long-in-the-tooth, snooty socialites draped in Lily Pulitzer, desperately trying to catch just one more polo match before settling in for that eternal dirt nap?

You better believe it!

But — and this might very much be the most important “but” you heed all year — geezers and geezettes aside, there is a fresher, hipper underbelly to the 5-6-1.

Some 250 miles south of where Ponce de Leon was sniffing around in the 16th century, they’ve managed to tap a true fountain of youth: craft beer, concerts, tatted-up victualers, celebuchefs, pop art, eco-minded lagoons and boutique hotels (oofa: the area generates $7.3 billion annually in tourism bucks alone).

With so much drama in the PBC, it’s not that it’s not your grandmother’s Florida anymore — because it still very much is.

It’s just that it’s not hers alone. Here’s a few places to prove it. Read More
