BIZ RECRUITER: BIG MONEY WANTS TO LIVE AND WORK IN WEST PALM BEACH

Published Wednesday, April 27, 2016

The promise of an ultra-luxury condo known as The Bristol, combined with a planned ultra-luxury office tower by Related Cos., has some rich business and finance leaders from the Northeast eyeing the county seat for a relocation.

“I had people just come to me from Greenwich (Conn.),” said Kelly Smallridge, president of the Business Development Board, Palm Beach County’s business recruitment arm. “Exactly the picture we’ve all painted is what they wanted. They wanted to buy at The Bristol and have office space across the street at the Related office building. They wanted water views.”

It makes sense, said Harvey Oyer, Related’s West Palm Beach lawyer. “A buyer in The Bristol is also a likely tenant in Related’s proposed building, and vice versa,” he said.

The recent inquiry isn’t an anomaly, Smallridge added.
