“This project will not only answer the growing need for housing around Downtown West Palm Beach but will also help solidify the Warehouse District as the city’s next hub of urban activity,” said Jack Weir, founder and managing principal of Eastwind Development. “We see great things ahead for both Palm Beach County and the City of West Palm Beach.”

Designed by MSA Architects, with Verdex Construction as the general contractor, The District Flats is located south of the trendy Grandview Public Market food hall and other nearby retail and entertainment outlets like Steel Tie Distillery, Steam Horse Brewing Company, and Surfing Florida Museum.
