MIAMI—Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe & Associates (NBWW) has topped off its latest project, the Hilton West Palm Beach.
The property, which is connected to the existing Palm Beach County Convention Center, will offer 400 guestrooms and suites and more than 24,000 sq. ft. of contemporary meeting space.
The firm sought to create an urbane, tightly knit neighborhood experience. Instead of designing a front garden with a grand arrival sequence, typical of other convention hotels, NBWW pushed the building toward the site’s edge to create an impactful street presence, according to the company. This approach to the positioning of the property enabled the firm to design added amenity-rich elements inclusive of a recreation deck along the back of the building, adjacent to the ballroom facilities. The 12-story building features a three-story accent overlooking Okeechobee Blvd.
The aesthetics of the building were inspired by the convention center. The hotel’s massing is accentuated with deep cantilevering trellises on the buildings parapets. This visual continuity between the two buildings was intended by NBWW to ease the exchange of users that both properties will come to rely on.
The Hilton West Palm Beach will offer a pool deck with cabanas and chaise lounges; a full-service restaurant, lounge and pool-side bar; and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The property offers direct access to the Palm Beach County Convention Center via a covered walkway and is located one mile from Palm Beach International Airport.
