Illustrated Properties in the Paramount Building in Palm Beach
139 N. Country Road, Ste 15, Palm Beach

 

June 1, 2019.  After five years at IPRE in Manalapan at the Southern end of the Palm Beach island, the time has come for me to move North, to the Palm Beach office.  I am so excited to invite you to stop by this iconic place: the PARAMOUNT. 

A step back in history: the building was designed by architect Joseph URBAN, in the Moorish Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival styles in 1926.  Stroll in the hallways of the former movie theater watching plastered news articles, covers, lobby cards and banners of the movie-going heyday (approx. 1920 through 1970). You can see who attended numerous "opening nights" - both visiting celebrities (like Marlon Brando, Duke of Windsor) and the local gentry (like the Kennedys).  Music of the era. 

The area around the what's left of the building is nicely kept, dotted with live orchid, patios with places to sit and enjoy the look and maybe have a glass of mineral water. 

 

Here for my French readers: 

Après cinq années sur la pointe Sud de l’ile de Palm Beach (Manalapan), le temps était venu de « bouger » et je serai heureuse de vous rencontrer dorénavant au PARAMOUNT de Palm Beach.  Un coin très français, à côté du restaurant CHEZ JEAN PIERRE, de la pâtisserie PATRICK LEZE et du marchand de vins THE FRENCH WINE MERCHANT.   Le PARAMOUNT est aussi un clin d’œil a mon enfance et l’intérêt que j’avais toute jeune pour les films américains de PARAMOUNT PICTURES.  Qui se souvient de la musique ?
