Related Breaks Ground On Twin Icon Apartment Towers In West Palm Beach, Designed By Arquitectonica

Two towers designed by Miami’s Arquitectonica and developed by Miami’s Related Group just broke ground in West Palm Beach.

Icon Marina Village will include a total of 399 apartments, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Pricing for the rental units will be around $3 per square foot.

Each tower at Icon Marina Village will rise 24 stories. There will also be a six-story parking garage with space for 600 cars.

The project will feature top of the line amenities, including a beach area. Penthouse units will have their own pools.

A $95 million construction loan from Santander Bank is financing the two new towers. The project is also in an opportunity zone meant for disadvantaged areas.

Completion is expected in December 2022. Balfour Beatty is the contractor.

Construction of the two towers was delayed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which took time to approve the docks and waterfront area of the development, Related said.

An additional four towers with 640 more apartments is approved next door, owned by Rybovich.

Related said that it plans to break ground on a total of 6,700 units this year alone, valued at $2 billion.

Artificial beaches could be a game-changer in South Florida.

We need to build barriers between land and sea to fight back rising sea levels. Rather than taking the Army Corps recommendation of building concrete walls that block access to the water, South Florida could build linear parks with gradually sloping berms leading to artificial beaches. They would be great for quality of life, property values, and could even help filter nutrient run-off into the water. Everyone wins.

Natural sand may be limited but there is no reason why we could not engineer high-quality artificial sand using the abundant oolite limestone resources in Florida.

Arquitectonica needs to find a better way to deal with their designs. They need to move away from the same symmetric double towers with ugly parking podiums for good.

The towers are at least symmetric, unlike the ugly splattered openings on the parking garage right at the street.

Way better than the horrible faux Mediterranean architecture with bulky ornate pillars painted terracotta all over West Palm Beach. I’m excited to elevate the area with this structure.

Nice to see TNM report on growth in WPB. With 360 Rosemary finishing up, One West Palm topped off, and with 575 Rosemary and One Flagler expected to break ground in the coming months, WPB has a lot coming

It’s nice to see something happening in WPB’s north end.

Water front property in WPB in a tax-advantaged opportunity zone brought to you by Graft.

It has been vacant long enough showing something ain’t right, so it doesn’t surprise me. Meanwhile, Mr. Perez who constantly screeched about Trump is taking advantage of his incentive programs. Also, if this was a slum, you would be the first to screech about gentrification.

Wow, that parking podium is really something. It looks like the datacenter in downtown with the spheres on top, uninspiring…

Too far of a commute.
Wouldn’t do it if they paid me.

“Too far of a commute” in TNM-speak is more then one block from free Metromover.

Why is free public transit so trivial to you? Metromover is an amazing & underutilized community asset; something that should be appreciated. For a 4-mi system, it’s incomparable.

Cities across the US have spent billions over the last decade+ to build streetcars with half of Metromover’s ridership. And they’re at-grade, with idiot drivers crashing into them all the time.
