PALM BEACH COUNTY SHOPPING HAPPENINGS
If you have headed north from Okeechobee recently, you have seen large cleared areas in the Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard region, right side of I-95.
A 900,000 sq ft development is under construction at this $200MM project. The area covers 80-acres. Palm Beach Outlets in West Palm Beach, scheduled to open on Valentine’s Day, will have more than 100 retail stores, including DKNY Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th and Kenneth Cole Outlet. These renderings will give you an idea of how nice it will look... and lure you to come and shop here once it opens.
This was the site of the former Palm Beach Mall. An adjacent retail center whose opening is planned for next fall will include Whole Foods Market and a Nordstrom Rack. Dining venues will be included.
The City of West Palm Beach anticipates about $1MM annually in property taxes from this development. About 1500 full-time and part-time jobs will be created. Stay tuned at Facebook.com/Palm Beach Outlet.
