Help Design The Next Chapter of West Palm Beach’s Southend Neighborhood

SouthDixieProperty

In 2012, after rumors began circulating that Wal-Mart had eyes on developing 8111 South Dixie Highway (the site of the old IHOP), the City purchased the 7-acre piece of property for $2.9 million. City leaders wanted to focus on a more innovative project that would help continue revitalizing the Southend. And, as the Southern most piece of property in West Palm Beach, leaders view it as as the gateway to the City for those coming from the South.

The site was cleared in October of last year and now the City of West Palm Beach is looking for help with the redevelopment of 8111.  From the 18th till the 21st of May, the City will be hosting Design Charrettes.

The Design Charrette Kickoff meeting is tonight, May 18th at the South Olive Community Center, 345 Summa St, @ 6:30PM.

Come visit the Design Charrette Sessions, which will be held in the Hibiscus Room at Mandel Public Library

Tuesday, May 19 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Wednesday, May 20 – Open to Public 6PM to 8PM
Thursday, May 21– Open to Public 10AM to 12PM

The designers will be working each of the 3 days from 9:30AM to 8:00PM.

The public session will be available for the public to come view what the designers are working on and give their feedback and ideas as the designs are developed.
