The City Center complex opened in the Spring of 2009 and serves as a prominent civic landmark, encompassing the entire north side of the 400 block of Clematis St. between Quadrille Blvd. and Dixie Highway, and bordered to the north by Banyan Blvd. The complex totals 270,000 square feet and is destined to become an icon of the City skyline, defined by dramatic architecture and daily energy of its public components. It houses an efficient new, 150,000 sq.ft. City Hall, and incorporates the West Palm Beach Public Library, which relocated from Centennial Square in the 100 block of Clematis in April 2009, opening the entire street to the waterfront.

City Center is also home to the Palm Beach Photographic Centre, recognized around the country as one of the premier educational centers of its kind. Master photographers from around the world will offer personalized instruction and exhibit their work, attracting both amateur and professional photographers on a daily basis to the Centre. The annual FotoFusion festival will draw thousands of new visitors to the Clematis District each year.
