Related Companies today broke ground on One Flagler, a new 25-story, 275,00-square-foot Class A office building that will extend the Flagler waterfront greenbelt with 1.25 acres of green space, and commemorated the completion of 360 Rosemary, a 20-story 300,000-square-foot Class A office building at the heart of the central business district. Together, these state-of-the-art office towers continue catapulting downtown West Palm Beach into a world-class financial hub, attracting industry leading global corporations to the city.
One Flagler, designed by renowned architect David Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, is set to redefine the workplace through its novel design, cutting-edge infrastructure, thoughtfully considered amenities and services. Infusing the city’s world-class architecture with its public spaces, Related will preserve the adjacent First Church of Christ Scientist in perpetuity, designed by African-American architect Julian Abele in 1928, and considered one of the most architecturally significant buildings in all of Palm Beach County. Honoring Abele’s legacy, Related will name its nearly one-acre, publicly-accessible park after the supremely talented architect.
When completed in 2023, One Flagler will anchor West Palm Beach’s Okeechobee Business District and the Flagler Financial District, a revolutionary public private partnership led by West Palm Beach City to pave the way for the city’s exponential growth.
“The City of West Palm Beach is experiencing unprecedented growth, investment and interest. We are gratified by the momentum that the city and our financial district are gaining among the world’s financial elite and proud that Related is using this moment to honor the renowned African American Julian Abele, who left an enduring architectural legacy in our community,” said Mayor Keith James. “Through the continued collaboration between our public and private sectors, we will achieve ever-greater economic and cultural milestones benefiting all who live, work and visit West Palm Beach.”
“Downtown West Palm Beach has emerged as the center of commerce in the Southeast and a national model for inclusive growth, drawing world-class firms to its unparalleled year-round lifestyle,” said Stephen Ross. “We are proud to have been part of this transformation—and look forward to helping write the continued growth story of this incredible city.”
“Downtown West Palm Beach has become a cultural and commercial crosswords of the world’s elite workforce, leading consumer brands, renowned chefs and iconic expressions of public art,” said Ken Himmel, CEO of Related Urban. “We’re designing the next generation of office buildings to not only be exceptional places to work, but pillars of this dynamic urban center with great public spaces and restaurants that energize the entire community.”
The best-in-class development will be home to celebrated chef Costas Spiliadis’ Greek seafood dining experience, Estiatorio Milos. Costas Spiliadis, chef and owner, has been the champion of Greek cuisine and culture around the world for the past 40 years. Standing on pillars of uncompromising standards of quality and hospitality, the exquisite dining experience coming to One Flagler in 2023 features fish and seafood flown fresh directly from the Greek islands each day.
Milos’ West Palm location is a contemporary interpretation of the Greek landscape, with indoor and outdoor flowing spaces that will be built on principles of simplicity, elegance and harmony, while integrating an abundance of lush landscaping, natural light and a balanced use of stone, wood, Pentelikon marble and Dinesen heart-oak planks.
“I’m delighted to bring Milos to a beautiful new home in West Palm at One Flagler,” said Costas Spiliadis. “Here, we will build on the relationships that we have established with our Miami restaurant over the past 10 years. Milos and Related have a partnership that will be further strengthened with this amazing new property.”
