The Royal Poinciana Plaza
Palm Beach, Florida
An institution in this glitzy, upscale town since it opened in the late ’50s, the plaza was designed in the mid-century glamour style by Austrian architect John L. Volk, whose residential clients included the Vanderbilts, DuPonts, and Fords. Its lush tropical landscape and shaded arcades with their black-and-white terrazzo tile have defined the ideal of Palm Beach living for generations of families.
In the past few years, under the auspices of WS Development (one of the largest retail developers in the world), Royal Poinciana has embraced its legacy while catapulting into the present with new retailers and community engagement. Fourth-generation Palm Beacher and granddaughter of local maven Lilly Pulitzer, Lilly Leas Ferreira has taken the helm as general manager.
