The city recently built a new convention center. A new downtown library and city hall funded by bonds are currently being built. This is all apart of a City Center, that will also include a waterfront park, photographic & arts center, and new shops.
CityPlace, is an upscale mixed-use shopping mall complex, including apartments and offices, located in downtown West Palm Beach, Florida along South Rosemary Avenue. The development of this property, constituting several city blocks in downtown West Palm Beach, is largely credited for the city's urban renaissance in early 2000. The area where CityPlace now stands was formerly a run-down residential inner city neighborhood.
Macy's and the Muvico 20 movie theatre are among the anchors. Besides shopping and movies, CityPlace is now at the forefront of West Palm Beach nightlife, in conjunction with the establishments located on nearby Clematis Street. The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts  and the Dreyfoos School of the Arts are located within walking distance of CityPlace, as is the newly-built Palm Beach County Convention Center. A trolley-bus circles downtown between CityPlace and Clematis Street. CityPlace also consists of The Harriet Himmel Theater (a renovated Methodist church). Built in 1926 and reminiscent of Spanish Colonial Revival Structures, 6 million dollars have gone towards restoring it and it serves as a cultural arts center.
