“Making Places better for people to come, live, work, play and go!”
After over 20 years of effort and planning, in August 2012, Palm Beach County executed a contract with Transit Village, LLC permitting a mixed use transit oriented development of approximately 1,300,000 livable, usable and exciting square feet in downtown West Palm Beach. While significantly promoting mass transit use, Transit Village’s blend of urban design and development economics will incorporate all modes of transportation, being just one traffic signal from I-95, less than 3 miles from Palm Beach International Airport and directly above and surrounding the recently completed West Palm Beach Intermodal Transit Center.
In addition to capitalizing on these transit modes, Transit Village is just a very short walk to:

Connecting to Create a Sense of Place and Innovation

Connecting Palm Tran’s 18 bus bay Hub to Tri-Rail, Amtrak, Greyhound, and the West Palm Beach Downtown Trolley, Transit Village is positioned to be the preeminent transportation, multi-modal hub and mixed use focal point in South Florida. Transit Village’s innovative development will create a livable, walkable urban environment providing an innovative destination of choice and distinction, contributing to the vibrancy of Palm Beach County and the Southeast Florida Region.

Invigorating and Sustainable Strategies to be implemented in West Palm Beach

Transit Village will embrace sustainable strategies (having already been selected for its efforts as one of seven projects in the nation in 2014 by the American Architectural Foundation and Sustainable Cities Design Academy) and best practices to generate economic growth, encourage livable communities and preserve environmental resources, including remediating a contaminated Brownfield site (having already been approved by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for partnering with them under a State Brownfield Remediation Agreement). Transit Village’s components are planned to encourage and support job creation and include the provision of affordable/workforce housing, commercial office and neighborhood and transit supportive retail space, as well as civic and community activities, all of which will be supported by mass transportation and pedestrian systems that will create and complete a desirable urban environment in downtown West Palm Beach.

Promote Walkability and Create a Park-Once Innovative Urban Environment Centre

Transit Village completes the western edge of the city’s historic downtown and reinforces existing street axes and views, strengthening the urban fabric, and creating a vibrant and connected neighborhood. The transit strategies, including minimizing downtown traffic by the creation of a “park-once” environment and the mixed uses planned for the Transit Village, will further stimulate growth and with ease, facilitate bringing new and returning visitors to the Downtown during the work week as well as weekends and holidays enabling Transit Village to truly be a place where people of all walks of life – adults and seniors, families, schoolchildren and students — can “come * Live / Work / Play / Learn * go.” The plan presents a balanced, yet distinguished development that will catalyze additional growth and inspire innovation. As the center for a livable, walkable urban environment, Transit Village will be not just a destination, but a distinguished destination of choice.

Join Other Transit Village Supporters

Transit Village’s efforts have been supported by many government agencies, including the Florida Department of Transportation, South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, Palm Beach Metropolitan Planning Organization, Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council, City of West Palm Beach, WPB Downtown Development Authority, and Urban Land Institute as well as numerous other civic and private supporters. The Transit Village TOD meets or exceeds the objective and subjective criteria necessary to qualify for New Market Tax Credits, Brownfield Tax Credits, housing tax credits, EB-5 Programs, as well as numerous other federal, state, county and city programs.
