New Affordable Housing Community Opens At City Of West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach, FL (January 19, 2018) – More than 50 community leaders, partners and residents joined the West Palm Beach Housing Authority (WPBHA) in the celebration of the grand opening of the Silver Palm Place Apartments on Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 838 Adams Street, West Palm Beach, FL. 

Silver Palm Place Apartments, a modern and high architectural style housing, is one of the newest communities to form part of the Dunbar Village’s 17-acre portfolio in Coleman Park.  This development was made possible by the continuous partnership with Landmark Development Corporation and the WPBHA.

“It was kind to do Dunbar Village and we see it has served its purpose. We made this petition and this is the fruit of all the hard work”, expressed Laurel Robinson, executive director of the West Palm Beach Housing Authority. “Thought the obstacles we never gave up and we continue our public housing development plans, to include Royal Palm Place, a 125-unit senior housing with a preference for Veterans.”

Attendees took a first-look at the one, two, and three-bedroom apartments, which features Energy Star efficiency appliances, washer, dryer, garbage disposal, ceiling fans, and more. Included in the community are a state-of-the-art fitness center and an outdoor pool. 

“Dunbar Village is the heart of Coleman Park and it is beating harder and faster than ever”, said Armando Fana, director of Housing and Community and Development of the City of West Palm Beach. “This is a magnificent example of creating a project that anybody in the community and city can be proud of.”

The WPBHA was incorporated by the City of West Palm Beach in 1938 to provide residents with access to safe and decent housing. “The Housing Center of the Palm Beaches” will continue with the commitment to provide programs leading to a transition to grater financial security and expand the WPBHA’s mission throughout the city and county.
