Long night expected Monday as West Palm commissioners vote on... |

Last night, we happened to bump into someone who lives in the high-rise Portofino condominium, just north of Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach. He was up-in-arms about this project, saying that it is a grab by the church to start satellite congregations with the money they get from the sale of this land. He also thought that even with the reduced height and two, not one, tower, the project was still too big for all of downtown - which it technically isn't a part of - and would dwarf everything around it, including the Trianon building - the high-rise to the south. By the way, this qualifies as a high-rise building anyway you look at it as it clearly is above 6 stories. Click title for link to Elliot Kleinberg article.
