Construction Update: Kravis Center for the Performing Arts – West Palm Beach, FL
A dedicated valet parking structure is also being constructed along with a new ramp for the existing parking garage that leads directly to Okeechobee Blvd. These additions will improve vehicular circulation throughout the site and ease of access to patron parking and drop off area. The existing parking garage is also being upgraded with new electronic wayfinding and parking assistance.
The previously underutilized plaza on the southeast corner of Okeechobee Boulevard and Tamarind Avenue has been redesigned with a water feature, custom signage, including a new digital marquee sign, and public art. The landscape throughout the entire campus has been renovated and includes the relocation of several specimen palms and oak trees.
The Okeechobee Boulevard frontage was redesigned to improve the pedestrian experience with a wide sidewalk, protected cycle track, and mature tree canopy. These improvements provide a safe and pedestrian-friendly experience for visitors walking or biking from Rosemary Square (formally City Place), the Palm Beach County Convention Center, and neighboring hotels.
The newly completed facility will be open in November 2019, just in time for the start of the 2019-2020 performance season.

This recognition is bestowed upon projects demonstrating the inspired use of landscape architectural practices in an imaginative and well-resolved combination.
The tropical wetland garden is a collaboration between installation artists, landscape architects, and a botanical garden’s fulfillment of its master plan.
The project, dubbed Kravis 2020: The Future is Now, will increase the size of the lobby, create a pedestrian-friendly plaza opening onto Okeechobee Boulevard, build a new valet parking garage, add an access ramp to the existing garage and improve traffic flow.
The 853,500-square-foot facility already hosts more than 500,000 patrons a year to its performances, but it wants a more modern and efficient layout.
