Cityplace is a $550 million dollar development that opened in 2000. It features a 20 screen Muvico theatre, Barnes and Noble, Macy's, shopping, dining, and nightclubs, multi-purpose theatre venue, Publix, and residences. An office tower is under construction. Unlike some other new urbanist developments, Cityplace does a good job of connecting to the rest of the downtown grid. It has attracted developers to build in the vicinity. Here's some pics:

Cityplace reminds me of the Venice in Las Vegas. It looks mediterranean.

^Mediterranean-Revival is the most prevalent architectural style in Palm Beach County, but West Palm is getting some towers that will break that mold. :)

I have yet to visit CityPlace. It looks gorgeous! The atmosphere reminds of old Manila, Philippines...very nostalgic.

There have been multiple armed robberies and car jackings in recent weeks. Sad but, stay away.. stay far far away.
