With a groundbreaking ceremony held Monday, May 13, the phase II of the Clematis Streetscape project got underway to improve public spaces in the 100 and 200 blocks of Clematis Street, the most iconic street in West Palm Beach.
Improvements to the two blocks of Clematis will add a curbeless street design with narrower traffic lanes but wider sidewalks and more shade trees. Phase II of the Clematis Streetscape project follows last year’s significant revamp of the 300 block in a much needed transformation to West Palm Beach’s most popular street.
Hopefully, this project will translate into an economic improvement that brings more business to current merchants, more jobs for residents, and a more vibrant downtown.
Here’s a look at the 100 200 block once the Clematis Streetscape project is complete:
