Your invitation from West Palm Beach Mayor, Keith James

Mayor Keith James
On behalf of the City of West Palm Beach, thank you for your interest in the Flagler Financial District. It is my hope that the District serves as a shining example of our City’s commitment to business and finance, and our dedication to progressing a city based upon the ideals that propel businesses just like yours.

What started as a home for a vibrant base of professionals, banks, and investment operations, has rapidly grown into a District that provides a convenient, concentrated urban hub of like businesses, financial institutions, and investment services. The Flagler Financial District mixes together business amenities, business culture, and community unlike anywhere else in South Florida. Standing strong right in the central downtown core of a city that perfectly balances business and life, the District is America’s most rewarding and fulfilling place to work and live.

If you’re considering the District, I want you to know you’re welcomed by city government that is pro-business, as demonstrated by our offers of tax abatement, incentives, fast-track permitting, and much more. Personally, before I was elected mayor of this fine city, I served as an attorney for companies of all sizes helping them reach their business goals. I was a part of the leadership of West Palm Beach during the depth of the recession, and helped build the city into the booming metropolis it is today. It is my privilege to lead this city and the District in helping take businesses like yours to new heights.

I know that where you locate your business is a big decision. But as all the businesses here before you now know, it’s a decision full of reward, and offering the opportunity of tremendous prosperity.

If there’s anything that our superb City staff or I can do to aid you in your search, expedite a process, or simply lend a hand, please let us know. We look forward to having you here, and helping you toward a very prosperous future.
