West Palm Beach CRA Acts to Improve Near Northwest Area

Dan Weil – The Real Deal.com

The West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency is taking a number of steps to fix up the city’s beleaguered near northwest neighborhood. The city has reached an agreement to buy the storied Sunset Lounge, a legendary largely African-American jazz club that hosted icons such as Count Basie and Duke Ellington. The $2.4 million deal will likely close early next year, Jon Ward, CRA Executive Director/RMA Sr. Redevelopment Administrator, told The Real Deal.
