ABOUT: The City of West Palm Beach and Related Urban will host a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony for Georgian Gardens Apartments, an affordable housing project for seniors.
Related Urban is developing a $21.5M, 87-unit, housing project located at 4330 Community Drive in the City of West Palm Beach. The City, through its HCD Department, has contributed $607,500 in federal program funds toward its development. The four-story building located on 2.73-acres is expected to be completed in December 2019. The project was designed by Modis Architects. This new development is one way that the City is partnering with the community to address the issue of affordable housing in the City. The project will feature rental apartments for seniors.
Georgian Gardens was originally developed as two phases of senior apartments in the mid-1990s. However, the first phase of Georgian Gardens was destroyed after being hit by hurricanes in 2004 and 2005.

The City of West Palm Beach partners with our communities to preserve and enhance quality of life through an extraordinary focus on service. West Palm Beach is a vibrant, resilient, inclusive and safe world-class city.
