City of Riviera Beach TAP Report
September 19, 2016
In 2016, ULI Southeast Florida/Caribbean provided recommendations to the City of Riviera Beach on relocating or rebuilding city hall, the city’s public safety operations, the public works department, and a branch library.
In the summer of 2016, the City of Riviera Beach asked the ULI Southeast Florida/Caribbean District Council to convene a TAP to develop a set of observations and recommendations related to relocating or rebuilding city hall, the city’s public safety operations, the public works department, and a branch library.
Recommendations for the City of Riviera Beach’s publicly-owned sites:
- Sites A and B, the Blue Heron Boulevard parcels, should be thought of as the
centerpiece of the new Riviera Beach civic campus, relocating city hall to Site
B, along with the new library. Remaining public uses should be retained on Site A,
rebuilding some facilities such as a new police headquarters and training facility.
Wells Center and recreational facilities on Site B to be rebuilt, as well
- Site E on Avenue L, a new Public Works Department building, should be
constructed within the property at its present location
- Site D, the 15th Street parcel, and Site C, the Broadway property, would best be utilized
in creative ways to generate more economic and job opportunities in partnership with
private developers and businesses
