Business Planned X fr on v Lx p J 4nfq 3 " j n I MMMC Mrs sctnn- i pm 1 tw aim (unto- I 2 MiHWM5((6LS,fcTt, i 1 1 MlNiilMi (njfllS.HC I X -3 1 I j I j I By PATRICIA PRESTON Stall Writer A canoe-shaped lakefront tract Is heavily penciled In the minds of West Palm Beach city officials as a booster for the downtown area. The$20-million development envisioned for the site of the city marina, from Flagler Memorial Bridge south to First Street, is to be an uncommon venture. First, the name of Edward Durrell Stone Sr., internationally-known architect from New York, will be put up as collateral. Second, the land itself is well-recognized as the prime property in the city's core. The younger Stone, the second half of the father-and-son team and a landscape architect from Fort Lauderdale, said "We would like to propose a landmark, a visible and vertical symbol of West Palm Beach that Is above the city skyline." He was talking the City Commission's language. Now, after one year of untangling details, a contract which is acceptable to both city and developer Is almost ready for signatures. The city certainly did not get the lean end of the bargain. It will receive $52,000 rent annually, property taxes which can only go up, and a minimum guarantee of $10 million in completed construction within 10 years. The Stone group, on the other hand, has only the raw resource of land which offers the most dazzling view of the lake, plus, what city officials confidently sense as true, a determination bound by the Stone name to make the proposal an article of achievement. Why did this city attract them in the first place? Said Stone Jr., "West Palm Beach is beginning to reach Its potential and we would like to have something to do with it. Fort Lauderdale simply does not have any prime land available." The developers will not be assaulted on all sides by similar projects. They have the advantage of being unique In the city. The project is intended to preserve the marina function. One of the buildings proposed for the site is a marina-services complex and the developers are bound to retain 80 per cent of the marina facilities. Also tentatively proposed are two land fills flanking the present docks on the north and south. On the fills will be built high-rise apartments and condominiums, hotels and town-houses. Along the outside rim of the "canoe" a small, landscaped commercial complex Is planned. The first phase will be landscaping the entire tract to fulfill the promise of unity made to the city. The piecemeal attitude, although acting as Insurance to some developers, has been strictly ruled out In the over-all goal of making the project a complete package. George Caldwell, one of the developers and head of Caldwell-Scott Construction Co. In Fort Lauderdale, also proposed as part of the contract that the development will draw on West Palm Beach for all the products and personnel needed. The Stone group has emphasized that West Palm Beach will become Its home base for the project. By January, City Manager William H. Tyre said, the contract will be signed and the project ready to go. j i I LAtt WW sum ciMfUi Sketch Shows Location Of Proposed Apartments, Condominiums At Marina Complex 1-14 Personals f ---- .. , :-,.-f,f 1 0"; --ifi I ' y - - - v -7Jjr J tv , Tin Can becomes Aquatic Toy For Scott Fluet, RightTAnd Brother Richard Seemann 4 v If' Beach Romp The beach, pi i enniiil playground for young and old alike. What better place to spend a balmy Florida aller-noon? While their parents caught a tew relaxing moments, six-year-old Richard Fluet and his brother, Scott, 4, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Fluet, of M2 1 2 .Tdth St. spread their wings and wet their imaginations. In the watery fantasyland, Scott turned a tin can into a chugging tug boat, until it tilled wilh water and sank from his grasp. Richard, a budding tadpole, practiced a new stroke, until a nose-full of water ended his aquatics. Of course, a bit of unorganized, brotherly horsepla is the perleel ending to a romp in the surf. 2-Business Services 2 05 Bookkeeping BOOKKEEPING Taxes, Secty. Svc. Keasonaoie, J.
