Open airy living space with views is a dream in Florida. Combine that with a historic property and contemporary artistic flair and you have the unique building that houses the new Alexander Lofts on Fern Street. This six-story brick building that embodies historic modern living was constructed in 1926 in the old Southern Bell Telephone regional headquarters. The Alexander Lofts – named after inventor Alexander Graham Bell – has been turning heads for months with the massive 6 story mural by Tristan Eaton designed around Bell and his life’s work and legacy.
Alexander Lofts bring unique living to downtown West Palm Beach. They put dwellers in the heart of what happening in the new district 2 blocks from the swanky new Wine Scene, Beer Garden, summer Green Market and Nicole Henry Gallery, a short walk to the new City Center and West Palm’s Public Library, the Courthouse, City Place, the Norton Museum (gearing up for a major new expansion), the fast developing high-end arts district, and for students or teachers Palm Beach Atlantic University.
The Alexander Lofts unique floor plans are inspired by the building’s history and there are studios, one and two-bedroom layouts to choose from. All the Alexander Lofts apartments feature open-concept floor plans, some with unusual curved walls, really high ceilings, columns and large windows, brick accents, and ample closet space. This is true loft living, something you only find in such artcentric cities as Manhattan. There will be an art garden on the west end, and a new apartment building is planned for across the street that will have a pool and gym accessible to residents of The Alexander. The building in the heart of West Palm Beach is ready to welcome its first residents move in by mid-June and already half of the 80-plus units are rented.
The most striking feature is the east-facing mural by internationally-known urban street artist and designer Tristan Eaton who transformed the formerly blank 7,000-square-foot wall into a tribute to the father of telecommunications, Alexander Graham Bell.
The mural “The Spirit of Communication” celebrates a big piece of American history, and adds a totally unique pictorial for the public to enjoy. The mural contains one little quirk – a small celebration of modern technology that wouldn’t be possible without Alexander Graham Bell’s huge leap in technology.
