An outdated indoor mall was demolished to make way for both a new outlet and power center in West Palm Beach, Florida known as Tanger Outlets Palm Beach.

Located at the intersection of Interstate 95 and Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard in the City of West Palm Beach, the original Palm Beach Mall was developed in 1967 as the first fully enclosed climate controlled mall in the State of Florida. New England Development of Boston, Massachusetts, and Eastern Real Estate of Woburn, Massachusetts, purchased the 86-acre property with visions to redevelop it into a vibrant, rebranded, outdoor shopping destination known as Palm Beach Outlets. Preliminary design concepts for Palm Beach Outlets evolved into a comprehensive development package that included an overall Master Development Plan, a two-phased Site Plan, Design Guidelines, Signage Program and Landscape Plan.

Project Key Facts



Urban Design Studios


Cuhaci Peterson was responsible for providing design services for the Power Center piece; supporting both the intricate demolition of the existing mall and the construction of the new Power Center element. Cuhaci Peterson collaborated with Urban Design Studios in the master planning and directional approvals for the project. Cuhaci Peterson phased the new construction to accommodate an existing retailer that eventually closed so that the Power Center could be built all at once. Despite the schedule being fast tracked, Cuhaci Peterson maintained multiple CD sets for accommodation of various changes that occurred throughout the construction process.
