Palm Beach apartment and piece of history

Visitors to Palm Beach famous Via Mizner off Worth Avenue might not realize its namesake — noted society architect Addison Mizner — designed an office building to house his architectural studio and related businesses.

Nor might they realize that the building today, No. 2 Via Mizner, is home to a three-bedroom apartment, which recently entered the marketplace at just under $10 million.

 

In 1923, the three-story office-studio building was the first of the complex to be completed on Worth Avenue, four years after the Mizner-designed Everglades Club opened across the street.

On the office building’s first floor was a space with a street-front display for his antique and pottery businesses. His office and studio were on the second floor, and a studio for architects and draftsmen — as well as a small apartment — were on the third floor.
