The Okeechobee Boulevard Corridor is the major east-west thoroughfare and gateway into downtown West Palm Beach. One of the earliest Downtown CRA public/private partnerships, CityPlace, with its trendy mix of eclectic and upscale stores as well as restaurants and nightclubs, calls a portion of the Okeechobee Corridor its home. A mix of hotels, offices, residential condominiums and the Palm Beach County Convention Center can be found along the Okeechobee Corridor. The Kravis Center hosts several cultural amenities adding to the quality of life for residents and visitors.
The Okeechobee corridor is also the site of several pote
ntially significant parcels of real estate, destined for redevelopment. Related’s “triangle site” is being redeveloped with a 50,000 square foot Restoration Hardware. The CRA owns the "tent site" at Okeechobee and Quadrille, a square block of prime land. A third parcel, the "opera site" is a northern adjacency to the tent site and is available for development proposals.
In 2014, the CRA co-sponsored (with the City and DDA) a Jeff Speck walkability study to begin work on connectivity across the corridor.
