Through an innovative and unique public-private partnership, this Museum and Public Library project has become a groundbreaking example of the immense benefits of an integrated, sustainable design process. This publicly funded project is the result of a rare partnership and forward-thinking, client-led initiative which will serve children and families today and for generations to come. Through the joint development of this facility and its many cooperative programs, it serves as a model for other museums and libraries throughout the country.
Constructed on 11.7 acres of publicly owned land, this 56,500 square foot facility will serve an estimated 300,000 children and adults annually and touch an additional 200,000 community members through a robust outreach program. After being open to the public less than three months, the new cultural epicenter already has seen more than 50,000 visitors! Easily accessible to Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade’s 4 million residents, this project is in close proximity to several major expressways and has been designed as a recognizable icon for long-time patrons and first-time visitors alike.
