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.

Palm Springs Margaritaville opens in former Riviera hotel

Last SlideNext Slide

The new Margaritaville hotel in Palm Springs is welcoming guests after a months-long renovation of the former Riviera property in uptown Palm Springs, marking the transformation of a historic Rat Pack-era property into a Jimmy Buffet-inspired getaway.

The opening comes amid a new, limited stay-at-home order in California with a 10 p.m. curfew, and as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urges people to stay home and not travel for the Thanksgiving holiday due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The 398-room hotel initially will open with about 60 to 75 rooms, Margaritaville’s chief operations officer Brad Schwaeble said. That will allow for maximum social distancing, and meet the tepid-but-present demand for leisure travel. 

“Obviously with health and safety being the primary concern, we don’t want to open the property at capacity. It wouldn’t make sense,” Schwaeble said. “Nor do I think the demand is there right now. This allows us to do it intelligently and as safely as you can currently.”

The Margaritaville brand, inspired by singer’s Jimmy Buffett laid-back and beachy ethos, has more than 20 properties including locations in the U.S. and Mexico. 

The property is the first Margaritaville on the West Coast, with two properties under development in San Diego that are slated to open next year.

It’s the first new brand for the Riviera property since it opened in the late 1950s; the brand change was done after Davidson Hotels & Resorts that took over as operators of the property earlier this year. 

The hotel will be staffed with more than 100 former Riviera employees, Schwaeble said.

A pandemic-era hotel opening

Schwaeble said the local management team is paying attention to local and state protocols to ensure that the hotel is operating in line with coronavirus guidelines.

Safety protocols at the hotel include: 

  • Required face coverings in all public indoor spaces of the hotel, 
  • Cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing using COVID-19 approved products,
  • Wellness checks for staff members.

Beyond the hotel’s own policies, California has a face mask mandate requiring people to wear face coverings when not at home unless they’re outdoors and maintaining at least 6 feet of social distance from others not in their household.

The company is not “tone-deaf” to what’s going on, Schwaeble said, and though demand for travel has been a roller coaster in recent months, he anticipates there will be guests looking for fun and safe getaways.

He said hotels are seeing people book their trips a few days out, indicating an appetite for last-minute travel. 

“We’re excited to be opening a property and on the other side of it, we want to continue, we want to keep hospitality going,” he said.

“As a brand, we take all of this very seriously,” Schwaeble said.

Several amenities will not be available at first, including

Les Cactus Is The Most Instagramable New Hotel In Palm Springs

Les Cactus, a hotel that opened just prior to the pandemic is raising the bar for design in the chic-as-it-is hot city of Palm Springs California. Located in the Warm Sands neighborhood, just minutes from famed Palm Canyon Drive— it is unofficially the most Instagramable hotel in town.

Named after the 60’s French rock ‘n roll hit by Jacques Dutronc, the property was built in two different phases between the 1930s and 1940s. After going through different owners and a variety of iterations over the years, the most current is likely the last. 

Owner and designer Matthew Kurtz came up with the concept to fill a gap he discovered in the marketplace during this own travels. “Living in Los Angeles, my wife Solène and I would often look to visit Palm Springs for a quick weekend getaway. Unfortunately, the well-designed boutique hotels we wanted to visit: Sparrows Lodge, Korkia Pensione, the Colony Palms, were routinely charging well over $400 per night, which was out of our reach.”

In addition to being less expensive than most hotels in the area, Les Cactus is also an adults-only experience. Due to the intimate size of the property, Kurtz wanted the hotel to be as quiet and relaxing as possible.

A Stylish Experience 

With just 27 guest rooms, the single-story hotel has a very exclusive feel. There are three different room types: Cozy (250-300 square feet), Comfortable (300-350 square feet), and Suites (350-400 square feet), all of which are unique in terms of size and design. 

Although the property isn’t large, the six-month-long renovation was quite labor-intensive. “Our main challenge revolved around staying in budget,” Kurtz tells me. “With our goal of delivering great design while charging guests less per night than our competition, it was imperative to keep our spending in check. We were very fortunate not to hit any roadblocks or find skeletons in the closet during this process.”

Kurtz intentionally decorated the space without any of the commercial-grade furniture typically found at most hotels. Items were purchased from a variety of well-known vendors including CB2, One King’s Lane, Rejuvenation, Hay, and Selamat. “In addition to placing importance on the design of the hotel, during our planning process, we also wanted to make sure our hotel and guest rooms were extremely comfortable and felt familiar,” he explains. “We hoped that by sourcing furniture from well-known sources, our guests would feel as if they were staying at a good friend’s home versus an unfamiliar or sterile place.”

The only design element repeated in each room is a framed square of floral Gucci wallpaper as well as a piece of spin art.

Select rooms also feature custom wood headboards, nightstands, console tables, shelving, and desks.

Palm Beach board OKs architecture for Palm House hotel renovation


The Architectural Commission approved the architecture but wants to restudy the landscaping plan for the long-stagnant Palm House hotel property in Palm Beach.

Darrell Hofheinz
 
| Palm Beach Daily News

The Palm Beach Architectural Commission voted 6-1 last week to approve revisions to the architecture of the Palm House hotel renovation project, which has remained unfinished for years.

But the board wants to take another look at the light peach color the building at 160 Royal Palm Way will be painted.

Commissioners, however, deferred the hotel’s landscaping plan to its Nov. 20 meeting for a restudy. The landscaping was extensively discussed at the board’s meeting Wednesday by attorneys representing neighbors on Brazilian Avenue, whose properties back up to the hotel’s southern boundary.

The board first reviewed the renovation project in September and requested multiple revisions. 

The project was designed by a team led by architect Sean McLendon of Cooper Carry in Atlanta for the hotel’s latest owner, a company affiliated with London + Regional Properties. The hotel property changed hands for about $40 million in May 2018 via a private sale approved by a bankruptcy court. No construction work has been carried out at the shuttered building for six years.

Commissioners last week said they want more information about where plant buffers on the southern perimeter will be installed and how the landscaping there will be affected by the constraints of building setbacks and a 5-foot-wide easement shared by the hotel and neighboring homes.

“If you were living behind this (hotel), what would you want to see done?” asked attorney John Eubanks, who represented two of the neighboring property owners.

Commissioners also asked the design team to restudy the landscaping on the east side of the hotel, opposite a commercial building, and consider adding a service gate there at the driveway leading from Royal Palm Way.

Like Eubanks, attorney Don Lunny, representing another neighbor, said his client was concerned about the impact of three items recently added to plans that were approved by the town years ago.  Those include a prep kitchen for the hotel’s banquet room; a bar and restroom area in the pool courtyard; and a fountain feature at the south end of the pool.

In a separate vote, the commission endorsed 11 code variances for the project, which are expected to be considered for approval Nov. 13 by the Town Council, said Palm House attorney Maura Ziska.

Commissioners learned from the design team that the trash-collection area at the southeast corner of the building will be removed. That had been a concern of one of the neighbors directly behind the garbage area.

Instead, the hotel will now keep its garbage in the hotel’s basement in cold storage until it is picked up, Ziska said. Commissioner Jeffrey Smith had suggested that option at the September meeting.

Commissioner Alexander Ives cast the lone vote against approving the architecture, saying it needed refinements to unify the scale of different parts of the building.

But he acknowledged that the designers are

Palm Springs should ban vacation rentals

What’s good news for other desert cities has become bad news for Palm Springs.

Video: Coachella Valley vacation rentals popular destinations during the pandemic.

UP NEXT

Palm Springs is seeing three to five new applications per day for vacation rental permits, even as Palm Desert, La Quinta, Cathedral City and now Rancho Mirage are moving to ban or restrict short-term rentals (STRs).

Palm Springs should join those cities in banning these mini-motels, which have disrupted our peaceful neighborhoods for too long.

Complaints to the Vacation Rental Hotline went from 16 last December to 199 in June, and they stayed high all summer. About 25% resulted in fines.

Mayor Geoff Kors told me: “The biggest beefs I’m hearing are outdoor noise complaints and the second is some vacation rentals are having gatherings that neighbors believe are more than just the people staying there.”

While noise decibels are regulated and amplified music is banned, it’s legal (and common) to have backyards filled with screaming children, shouting dads and moms, drunken millennials, barking dogs and pot smoke wafting over the walls.  

Full-time neighbors tend to be quieter and more respectful, some residents say.  

What’s more, STRs don’t usually follow the same COVID-19 standards as hotels like electrostatic spraying, ozone cleaning and the use of hospital-grade air filters.

Asked about the rise in complaints, Kors told The Desert Sun for a recent story that the city made changes to the way it operates its complaint hotline. But beyond administrative adjustments for existing enforcement policies, Kors said there are no proposed changes at this time to the existing short-term rental ordinance, or steps to ban them as other cities have taken.

Palm Springs has 2,019 active vacation rental homes. Two years ago that number was 1,787. 

Some people are urging the city to do more.

Former City Councilman J.R. Roberts, who co-authored the current Vacation Rental Ordinance with Kors, told me that he been “volunteering” his time with the city to help draft new rules.

Former Palm Springs City Councilmember J.R. Roberts said he has been “volunteering” his time with the city to help draft new rules on short-term vacation rentals.

“I see a proliferation of permits,” Roberts told me. “My biggest concern is over-saturation, an imbalance in certain neighborhoods. One of the things we’re working on to send to City Council is creating a percentage cap for each neighborhood, which would ultimately create a cap for total permits.”

Palm Springs’ architecture, adventure are just a click away

Yellow striped umbrellas shade the poolside chaises, the sky above a technicolor blue and — wait a sec. Let’s try the purple ridges of Mount San Jacinto against a tangerine sunset sky and — hmm. Would the vintage black and white party scene be better?

If we can’t be in Palm Springs for real, we’re going to thoroughly pretend we are, using 21st century tech to immerse ourselves in that mid-century modernist vibe. But choosing a Zoom backdrop for a mod happy hour is proving more challenging than expected.

It’s opening night of Palm Springs’ Modernism Week Preview — and like so many other things in this world, the celebration has gone virtual, starting with a “Live from the Zoom Zoom Room” happy hour, complete with snappy repartee and a DJ spinning discs from the ’60s. As it turns out, our backdrop doesn’t matter. All we need to pair with those Rat Pack-era tunes is the syncopation of a martini-filled cocktail shaker and a little time travel.

For the last 15 years, Palm Springs’ Modernism Week has celebrated this mecca of mid-century style, and the distinctive cityscape designed by Albert Frey, Donald Wexler, Richard Neutra and other architectural icons, with house tours, film screenings, panel discussions and parties. And the newer fall Modernism Week Preview has become a celebration of its own with four days of splashy events. Normally, that is.

This year’s preview is not only virtual, it runs through November and offers half a dozen streaming architecture tours — including “Palms Springsland” — and special events you can enjoy from home. The only live event, the online Zoom Zoom Room frolic, was in mid-October, but it included enough fun elements to start any party, from the vintage tunes and martinis to an architect-inspired drinking game. Take a sip when you hear the name Frey, host Kellee McQuinn told modernism fans during the Zoom party, and the chat screen erupted with delighted shouts: Frey! Sip! Frey!! Sip!!

Streaming “Palms Springsland” ($35) the next evening, we realize why. Frey gets a shout out every two minutes on the whirlwind tour led by midcentury pop culture expert Charles Phoenix. So do his colleagues Neutra and Wexler, because their work is everywhere. Phoenix leads some of the most popular architecture tours during real-life Modernism Week, offering exuberant commentary atop a double-decker bus. In the virtual version, he takes viewers on a 40-minute joyride through Palm Springs, peppering his narration with historical tidbits, architectural context and delighted exclamations, including his catch phrase, “I know!”

Eager for more architectural fun on our virtual Palm Springs getaway, we queue up the more sedate “Modernism Week Signature Home Tour” ($35) next for a streaming look inside five homes, including the Edris House designed in 1954 by E. Stewart Williams. Williams was Frank Sinatra’s architect, too, for his Twin Palms Estate.

A post-screening email from the Modernism Week organizers brings a bonus: A link to virtual tours of all five, so you can “walk” through each room,

Luxury housing market inspires ‘total frenzy’ in vacation-home boom towns like Aspen, Palm Beach and Lake Tahoe

In the third quarter, luxury home sales jumped 41.5%, the biggest year-over-year shift since 2013, according to Redfin. And while real estate agents repping luxury homes aren’t seeing as many bidding wars as they did this summer, the message across the company was the same: their respective markets are crazy right now.

“What we’re seeing here in Palm Beach is a total frenzy,” Dana Koch, a sales associate with Corcoran Group, the Koch Team in Palm Beach, told HousingWire. “I’ve had many conversations with clients of mine from late April through early July, the margin was total pandemonium. And, since early July to now, it’s just getting very busy.”

A recent report from Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel revealed that the average home price in Q3 in Palm Beach was $7 million. Contracts during this time also skyrocketed 62%.

While the Palm Beach market has not seen a lot of bidding wars, Koch said that a lot of the inventory has been absorbed and properties are getting multiple offers.

Since it’s a summer destination, Palm Beach’s busy season for home-buying starts on Nov. 1, and runs through May 1. Koch said that since this summer — typically the home-buying off-season — was busy for buyers, he thinks it will only get crazier.

“We normally average roughly like $200 plus million on an annual basis, and during the first three quarters, we’ve sold $350 million worth of real estate,” Koch said. “So it’s been a crazy year. It’s been a very profitable year.”


NAMB leads brokers in advocating for consumer data privacy

Over where the weather is colder, Steven Shane, a Compass real estate agent in Aspen, Colorado, said that buyers are coming from all over Texas, Florida, New York and California.

Shane said that schools in Aspen have increased their enrollment, as families are putting their roots down where they can have more space.

“I think that there’s a lot of people who rented, put their kids into school, and now, interest rates are so low, if you think about it, it makes a heck of a lot more sense to buy something than to pay rent,” Shane said. “So a lot of the people who came here initially may have rented just to get a place and now are looking to buy a home.”

From hiking to skiing and fishing, Shane said that people want to be able to get out and be able to stretch their legs if they’re working from home, and they can do that in Aspen.

“People learned that they can work from anywhere,” Shane said. “For the most part, people can work remotely, and their children might be attending school remotely. So why not be in Aspen, Greenwich, Connecticut, or the Hamptons?”

Speaking of the Hamptons, as

Palm Springs sees spike in vacation rental complaints. No plans to change ordinance

On a steamy Sunday afternoon in early August, a Palm Springs code enforcement officer arrived at a luxurious vacation rental property to inquire about a noise complaint that came into the city’s hotline.

The officer could hear “Brickhouse” by The Commodores playing from the side of the street, according to a city hotline log. Ultimately, the officer issued a citation, one of 159  issued to Palm Springs vacation rental properties in June, July and August.

That figure represents a 150% increase in the number of citations issued to Palm Springs vacation rentals compared to the same months last year. The majority of citations stemmed from loud music, which comes with a $500 fine to the guest. Others were issued over parking, operating without a license, or other violations.

Palm Springs cracked down on vacation rentals because of neighbor complaints, this fall they are updating the ordinance. Locked key boxes used by vacation renters are photographed at the Biarritz condos in Palm Springs, Calif., on November 12, 2019.

The spike was coupled with an unanticipated influx of visitors venturing to the desert in the summer heat for longer-than-usual stays to break from sheltering in place.

Bruce Hoban, the co-founder of the Vacation Renter Owners and Neighbors of Palm Springs said the increased number of bookings this summer stemmed from pent-up demand amid the coronavirus pandemic, where “everything was shut down for three months and then all of the sudden you can go get a vacation rental.”

These stays were also longer; while travelers normally stay for two nights for a desert summer getaway, this year saw more frequent stays of four days or longer, Hoban said.

“We got this very not normal crowd coming into the city to rent vacation rentals who just didn’t want to follow the rules,” Hoban said.

Palm Springs’ vacation rental ordinance has been held up as a model for strict enforcement. The city has a “three strikes” policy that can cause an owner to lose their ability to operate for two years. An individual can only have one vacation rental license, which is limited to 32 guest stays a year plus an extra four bookings during July, August and September. 

On Wednesday, Councilmember Lisa Middleton presented along with former code enforcement officer Boris Stark, who now works for Acme Vacation Rentals, at a California League of Cities meeting to talk about “best practices” for short-term rentals.
