CityPlace (West Palm Beach) is an upscale lifestyle center in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida along South Rosemary Avenue. Besides shops and restaurants, the center also includes rental apartments, condos, and offices.
AMC Parisian 20 and IMAX, LA Fitness and Publix are the center's anchors. The fourth anchor was Macy's which closed in 2017. Hotspots include Panera Bread, Cheesecake Factory, Brio Tuscan Grille, Sloan's Ice Cream, and Starbucks. In December 2013, Revolutions, a bowling alley, opened a location in CityPlace. Apart from shopping, dining, and cinema, the center is now at the forefront of West Palm Beach's entertainment complementing establishments located on nearby Clematis Street.
The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts and Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. School of the Arts are located within walking distance to CityPlace, as is the Palm Beach County Convention Center. An early-century trolleybus circles downtown between CityPlace and Clematis.
The shopping center is the epitome of a New Urbanist mixed-use development. Most of its architecture is West European-inspired, with mainly Mediterranean and Venetian elements. However the CityPlace Tower constructed in 2007, and associated with the original property, is postmodern. This tower has been downtown West Palm Beach's first office development in over twenty years. Later phases of CityPlace, including Montecito Palm Beach (formerly called The Mark at CityPlace) and CityPlace South Tower, retain loyalty to the original development's architecture. Excluding these more recent additions, CityPlace proper contains 600 private residences.
The Harriet Himmel Theater, a former Methodist church, is located at the center of CityPlace. Built in 1926 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, it has undergone a six million dollar restoration, and serves today as a cultural center. Surrounding squares, arcades, and promenades feature 2,000-square-foot (190 m2) water fountains and lush landscaping.
