Currie Park in West Palm Beach could be on the verge of a major make over. The project involves a floating plaza, where you can literally walk out onto the intracoastal to shop and eat. But first, planners want to hear your voice.

It was standing room only at the first ever community meeting on this floating plaza project, which developers say is unlike any other in the world. The Rio De Janeiro Olympics tried to build it but ran out of time.

The project is a public/private partnership between the Community Redevelopment Agency and billionaire developer Jeff Greene, who is building luxury condominiums across the street. In addition to the floating plaza across from Currie Park, the project also involves revitalizing the waterfront, rehabbing the park and constructing underground parking garages within man-made hills.
