Downtown West Palm Beach is experiencing a tremendous amount of new growth. Just west of Palm Beach Island, it is a popular, vibrant city and a cultural hub for the surrounding areas. Many of its residences are high rise buildings along Flagler Drive’s waterfront, offering unobstructed intracoastal-, and ocean views. It offers the best of big-city amenities coupled with friendly, small-town appeal. It is renowned for strong schools, top-notch healthcare and business-friendly government. Startups to multi-national businesses all thrive here. West Palm Beach is minutes from PBI, Palm Beach International Airport, and the Port of Palm Beach.
The El Cid neighborhood is located just south of the booming revitalized downtown West Palm Beach and is in close proximity to the intracoastal waterway and Flagler Drive. A wide walkway along the lake offers a place to bike, stroll, rollerblade, fish or socialize with neighbors. El Cid was developed largely in the early part of the last century as a neighborhood for many of West Palm Beach’s prominent families and earliest settlers. El Cid real estate reflects that heritage with Mediterranean and early Florida vernacular architectural influences. Wide front porches, charming loggias, broad lawns and a true family neighborhood atmosphere attract year-round and seasonal residents alike.
Originally one of West Palm Beach’s finest neighborhoods, it is rapidly being rediscovered as an area where one can find real estate with all variations of price points. From the outdated home needing restoration to the already perfectly remodeled home, Northwood real estate appeals to those who are looking for an affordable home close to downtown West Palm Beach. It is in close proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway and a short and easy drive to the beach just across the bridge.
