Landmark Development Corp. wants to build 120 apartments in West Palm Beach as part of the redevelopment of the Dunbar Village public housing facility.
Developed in 1940 at 1624 Douglass Ave., Dunbar Village originally had 246 units but federal regulators approved the demolition of 13 buildings in 2008, leaving part of the land vacant. Part of it is slated for a senior housing community. Landmark Development Corp. wants to build the 120-unit Silver Palm Place in two buildings on the additional 4.6 acres.
The site would be leased from the West Palm Beach Housing Authority.
“The redevelopment of this portion of Dunbar Village presents an opportunity to bring a modern housing product with community amenities, high-end architectural styling while keeping within the prescribed density, a redevelopment project which seeks to bring new life to Dunbar Village,” Landmark Development said in its application, which will go before the city’s planning board on Feb. 18.
The developer hired Jon E. Schmidt Associates as its land planner and and Corwil Architects as its lead architect for Silver Palm Place.
