The Related Companies has announced a proposal that would bring significant changes to the 17-year-old shopping and residential development.

Citing the recently opened RH West Palm in the center of Okeechobee Boulevard, the completion of the long-planned Hilton West Palm Beach and other recent success stories, the company unveiled plans for a variety of changes. 

Among them are the recently opened WPB Collective in the former Restoration Hardware space, which houses pop-up shops for local retailers. Coming soon to the hexagonal building in the entertainment plaza is The Shack, a walk-up restaurant with outdoor seating, run by Field of Greens.

Another coming attraction:Culture Lab in the former Macy's building. The experimental space will host events, exhibits, and other surprises.

Other art installations are planned, including new signs at the Okeechobee Boulevard and Rosemary Avenue entrances.

On the business end of things, the company plans a 250,000-square-foot office building near the new Brightline station.

Related Urban said they will be working with the city and county to refine these proposals for approval.

Other plans include:

  • A proposed 350-unit luxury residential building on the site of Macy's with retail and restaurants on the lower floors.
  • A 255,00-square-foot office building on the parking lot on Rosemary between Publix and Brightline, which could include an expanded Publix.
  • A redesign of the AMC 20 theater into an upscale theater with fewer screens and additional amenities.
  • Redesigning the architecture throughout CityPlace.
