Vista Center

Often referred to as the “Spider” for its complexity, this building was designed for Palm Beach County’s Planning and Zoning Department.

Despite the fact that nearly 28 panels were lost during the 2004 hurricane season, the project was still completed in record time. The panels used were also unique as each one was comprised of three different thicknesses from top to bottom; the panels measure 11.25-inches on the bottom, move upward 30 feet to 9.25-inches, and are 7.25-inches at the top.

The building’s mansard roofs display Spanish “S” tiles, and there are two radius panels at the front entry. EIFS trim created raised profiles and aluminum filigree defined entries and special accent features.

In addition, the project required a parking garage be connected to the main building at four different levels.
