The Waterfront and City Commons area are embarking on a major transformation. The waterfront district will convert from disconnected patches of mini parks to an attractive, family-friendly destination. A shade covered promenade, three new public docks, water gardens, arcades, a floating walkway, piers, a lake pavilion, an amphitheater and a beach will be designed to create a harmonious experience for residents and visitors to the Downtown Core.
The new City Center includes a state-of-the-art library, City Hall, Photographic Centre and plenty of on-site parking. With the completion of these projects, the City will truly live up to its reputation as “The Capital City of the Palm Beaches.” Dining and nightlife options add to the downtown experience making Clematis Street an exciting destination. Commercial and residential development will allow the private sector to capitalize on the synergy of activity currently under way. Retailers looking to capitalize on the affluent market of downtown residents should consider relocating to downtown.
