A new skyline is in the works in West Palm Beach. 

When the Bristol opened in 2019, it was the coastal city’s first new condominium in a decade. Five years and one transformative pandemic later, developers have two dozen residential projects in the works, with a pipeline of nearly 6,600 units, according to an analysis by The Real Deal.

Projects run the gamut from small townhouse developments to highly amenitized luxury towers with eight-figure penthouses. Developers forming the West Palm Beach of the future are a familiar crowd: Steve Ross’ Related Companies, Jorge Pérez’s Related Group, David Martin’s Terra, and Al Adelson, who is back for more after building the Bristol. 

The residential development boom is in part a response to Covid. A gush of buyers migrating to the region sent home prices to new heights, and they haven’t come down. Neither has demand. Between continued inbound migration and a wave of West Palm Beach office projects set to open in the next few years, developers anticipate plenty of new arrivals to fill the condos, apartments and townhouses they are building. 

This map shows what is planned:

1717 North Flagler Drive | Ritz-Carlton Residences, West Palm Beach | Related Group, BH Group

The Pérez family’s Related Group is partnering with Isaac and Liat Toledano’s BH Group on a number of projects across South Florida, including their planned Ritz-Carlton Residences, West Palm Beach. The developers launched sales for the waterfront condo project at 1717 North Flagler Drive this spring, with Douglas Elliman leading sales. It is estimated to be completed in 2027. Unit prices for the 144-unit, 28-story project start at $2.5 million, and sizes range from 1,400 square feet to 3,000 square feet. 

150 Clearwater Drive | Transit Village | Related Group, BH Group 

Related Group and BH are also partnering on the planned Transit Village, a 1.3 million-square-foot mixed-use project that would include more than 986 residential units, including 42 workforce-priced rentals and 165 micro-units. The project, at 150 Clearwater Drive, will have four 25-story buildings. In addition to the residential units, it will have 180,000 square feet of offices, 49,000 square feet of retail and a 108-key hotel. Planning for Transit Village has dragged on for more than a decade, and the developers recently filed a lawsuit against Palm Beach County, alleging the municipality is pressuring them to pay 10 times the agreed upon price for the site. 

4906 North Flagler Drive | Apogee | Related Group

Related Group’s third project planned for West Palm Beach is a 25-story, 46-unit, Apogee-branded tower at 4906 North Flagler Drive.

It is currently reworking the plans.
