Plans for tallest building in world revived in Palm Beach

The idea for building one of the world’s tallest towers in the middle of downtown is still alive, after city commissioners decided to negotiate with that development group and two others on Tuesday.

Except that the idea has gone from lofty to loftiest – it’s now proposed to be the tallest building in the world.

The building would stand higher than the record-holding 1,800-foot-tall Canadian National Tower in Toronto. And the project doesn’t look like the Seattle Space Needle anymore.

Fort Lauderdale-based High Point Group president Luis D’Agostino brought a model for his presentation that showed a totally different building – this one a 1,957-foot-tall giant with straighter edges and not the tapered look of the former proposal.
