The City of Lake Worth Beach is located on the southeast coast of Florida, in Palm Beach County, just south of West Palm Beach and north of Delray Beach, FL. Although development in Lake Worth has been sporadic for the last 50 years, development pressure from both the north and south have made the City a focal point for new investment. The City is determined to attract new residents, businesses and activities while still remaining quaint, distinctive and authentic. Lake Worth Beach is known as the place where art is created due to the many artists who call Lake Worth Beach home. It is home to such cultural institutions as the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, the historic Lake Worth Playhouse, Benzaiten Center for the Creative Arts and hosts the Street Painting Festival, Pride Fest and Dia de los Muertos. It is also well known for its inclusive environment and its diverse ethnic make-up
The available sites are located on North Dixie Highway, in an area undergoing significant redevelopment. On the block to the south, a new mixed-use development was recently approved by the City Commission. That project, by Affiliated Development, will include 230 apartments and just under 10,000 square feet of commercial space. Also, just west of Dixie Highway and off of 19th Avenue North, 59 new single family homes are under construction by Meritage Homes. Values in this area have been steadily rising in recent years as more residents move to the area for its close proximity to everything Lake Worth, including the arts district, recreational activities, live entertainment and the beach, which is just over a mile away.
