As with any great project, a large diverse team of professionals contributed to the final result. Studio Sprout collaborated with a world class artist, Michael Singer Studios, local landscape architects Sanchez and Maddux, a local developer, city officials, and urban planners to create the new waterfront for West Palm Beach City.
“This visionary collaboration has resulted in the design of an incomparable environmentally sensitive waterfront and public gathering place that will become our “City Commons” (and)…. has provided us with an active and vibrant downtown waterfront that will distinguish our city as a world class destination.” Mayor of West Palm Beach – Lois Frankel
