Palm Beach Riverstone is scheduled to open in West Palm Beach by the second quarter of 2022, just east of I-95 at 45th Street.

WEST PALM BEACH — Developer American Group is fast-tracking its Palm Beach Riverstone apartments, a 374-unit complex slated for 45th Street, beside the Interstate-95 northbound off-ramp in West Palm Beach.

President and CEO Gregory Horton said Tuesday his Los Angeles-based firm hopes to complete the project by the second quarter of 2022.

The project also includes a tract for a 150-room hotel, if the pandemic-squeezed market revives. The apartment and hotel sites are next to a Wawa market and gas station under construction. The property formerly housed an IHOP and a Days Inn.

The city commission voted unanimously Monday to approve land-use changes to accommodate the project. The firm plans to apply for building permits this month and to start construction in January, Horton said.

The apartments will lease for moderate rents, some low enough for workforce housing, as required by the city, he said. “It’s not a luxury development but it’s certainly going to look like one.”

The eight-story project will include a roughly 500,000-square-foot, pengaton-shaped complex with a 36,000-square-foot atrium courtyard, he said. A two-story lobby will lead to the courtyard.

The apartments will be distanced from the interstate by a six-story, 700-space garage.

The firm plans to employ tunnel form construction, an accelerated building method in which panels for floors and walls are cast on the site and stacked, rather than using columns.

American Group is a family firm with most of its properties in California, but there are others in Washington State and Thailand.

With construction getting more difficult in California, the firm chose to expand elsewhere, Horton said. “We did our homework and decided where the population and demographics are best is Florida, Texas, Arizona and Utah.”

Riverstone is the company’s first project in West Palm Beach.

As the hotel market struggles, the firm is considering other options for the tract between the apartments and Wawa. Medical offices or a surgical center are possible, he said, as the site is just south of JFK Medical Center’s north campus.

If a hotel is built, it might contain a ground-floor restaurant, possibly something similar to the IHOP that used to be there, Horton said.

Nonprofit turns hotel into winter shelter, studio apartments

Roof Above has purchased an 88-room hotel in southwest Charlotte, with plans to convert the building into affordable housing for people who are chronically homeless.

The nonprofit recently finalized the purchase of a former Quality Inn hotel on Clanton Road near Interstate 77. The rooms immediately will be used for winter shelter and next year renovated into studio apartments.

“We believe so firmly that housing is the solution to homelessness,” said Liz Clasen-Kelly, CEO of Roof Above, the name for the merged Men’s Shelter of Charlotte and Urban Ministry Center.

The units will be for people who have been homeless for more than a year and who have physical or mental health conditions or substance use disorders, which are barriers to staying housed.

“There really is a need, not just for the affordable housing but for the support services to go with that housing,” Clasen-Kelly said. Residents will have access to a case manager, nurse and other resources on site.

The project will replicate the model from Moore Place, which opened in 2012.

Next year Roof Above plans to add kitchens in each room and convert the units into studio apartments. The budget for the purchase, renovation and initial operating costs is $12 million, officials said.

This is the second Roof Above venture this year to expand permanent supportive housing. In September, the nonprofit announced it had bought the 341-unit HillRock Estates apartments in east Charlotte, where 75 units will be used for permanent supportive housing.

‘An opportunity’

Officials had initially planned to expand supportive housing through new construction. But as the pandemic grew and leaders sought more hotel rooms to decrease shelter crowding, they learned the hotel’s former owners were looking to sell.

Renovating an existing facility is faster and more cost-efficient, Clasen-Kelly said.

“The pandemic has created, clearly, such hardship and suffering, but there are opportunities that the pandemic has created as well,” she said. “This is one of the silver linings is the potential you shift in some hotels and motels into affordable housing throughout the country.”

Hotels have been a potential solution for affordable housing advocates around the United States. And as the tourism industry struggles amid the pandemic, more buildings may become available.

Locally, nonprofit Heal Charlotte announced a $10 million capital campaign this fall to buy and renovate a hotel into affordable housing.

Winter shelter

Before the renovations at the Clanton Road site begin the hotel will immediately be used for winter shelter for women and children who are clients of the Salvation Army Center of Hope.

Emergency shelter has been challenging during the pandemic, with typical congregate living and dining systems more risky for spreading COVID-19.

Shelters like Roof Above and others have lowered capacities and moved some residents into hotel rooms to practice social distancing. Other programs like the Room in the Inn, where local congregations and other groups housed small groups of people during the winter, have been canceled this year because of concerns around managing them safely.

Clasen-Kelly said adjustments,

Developers behind Church + State unveil plans for hotel, new apartments in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Developers submitted plans this week that show the apartment building and hotel they want to build right off the Veterans Memorial Bridge in an increasingly crowded area of Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood.

The designs submitted Monday to the city’s planning department show that developers Graham Veysey, his wife Marika Shioiri-Clark and Michael Panzica want to add 167 apartments in a two-acre property off West 25th Street near Detroit Avenue between the bridge and the Superior Viaduct.

The planned 233,000 square-foot project, which the developers have dubbed “Bridgeworks,” will be 11 stories tall and include a 160-room hotel, as well as a coffee and commons bar and a patio. The paperwork also details plans to add 180 parking spaces in a garage both above and underground and 30 spaces along the street.

Veysey, Shioiri-Clark and Panzica have been behind other projects in the Hingetown enclave of Ohio City, including the Church + State building a bit west on Detroit Avenue. Veysey said in a text that he was letting the submission to the planning department speak for itself.

“The project will energize a corner of W. 25th Street and Detroit Avenue that is void of activity and used for light industrial purposes, a use that no longer first (sic) the bourgeoning residential and retail area,” the developers wrote as part of the paperwork submitted to the city. It says the building will help connect the West Bank of the Flats and the north end of Irishtown Bend up to Ohio City.

The county in September 2019 agreed to sell the property, which includes buildings used as a garage and test lab for the public works department, to the developers for $4.15 million. It is one of four the county sold as part of a public works consolidation plan that will centralize operations a garage in Newburgh Heights previously used by the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority.

County records show the sale has not yet gone through. A county spokesman said he could not immediately answer an inquiry from cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer.

The plans the Bridgeworks developers submitted indicate that they don’t plan to demolish the buildings on-site to make way for their projects. The buildings, including a ticket booth for the streetcars that stopped running in the city in 1954, will be renovated for “non-public functions” of the hotel and will include commercial and public space, according to the plans.

Part of the facility was built in 1941 and another portion in 1964. The ticket booth predates both and is believed to have been built around 1917.

The project will represent yet another addition of apartments to the West Side area that has seen a lot of new construction in recent years. Buildings such as The Quarter on Detroit Avenue went up in recent years while others such as The Viaduct in the West Bank of The Flats are also planned.

It will also be built near St. Malachi Parish, a Catholic church known for its

Historic Downtown Beaumont building could become hotel, apartments

A long-time property owner of historic buildings in Downtown Beaumont is asking the city for approval to transform his property into a new hotel and apartment complex.

Richard Gilbert, principal of GP Realty and owner of the antique mall building on the corner of Orleans and Forsyth streets, will present a request Tuesday at the Beaumont City Council meeting for a specific use permit to zone the buildings for multi-family dwellings and hotel lodging.

Gilbert, a real estate developer in Houston, said he decided to make the move because he has long felt Beaumont’s downtown has missed out from a lack of housing opportunities.

“The demand is there, just no one has developed it for whatever reason,” he said. “I’ve been having this idea to redevelop this property to a residential facility, but kept them commercial because there was still demand for the space.”

The pandemic’s impact on brick-and-mortar businesses combined with low interest rates and widely available capital created the perfect environment to start the transformation to a residential property, Gilbert said.

The former antique mall on Orleans Street currently is zoned commercial — which allows for use as a storefront, office or hotel — but will have to be zoned multi-family in order to house apartments.

The building itself was built in 1938 and is about 12,800 square feet. The entire property, which includes about a quarter-acre of land, was last appraised by the Jefferson County Appraisal District at around $216,000.

If approved by the council, the project would join a smattering of existing condos spread through the city’s central business district.

Chris Boone, director of planning and development for the City of Beaumont, said there currently were just 60 units downtown, mostly concentrated in two developments completed about a decade ago.

“The majority of those (units) were brought on the market about 10 years ago when Landmark Realty out of North Carolina developed the old Antioch Church and the old Neches Electric into apartments, and the Cathedral Square development came online about the same time,” Boone said in an email to the Enterprise.
