The owner of the Carefree Theatre in West Palm Beach has added another piece to his assemblage of land. Charles Cohen of Cohen Brothers Realty in New York said Thursday that he bought the 0.6-acre site at 2100 S. Dixie Highway.
The seller, Palm Beach Justice Center, paid $1.65 million in 2006 for the site. A deed for the latest sale has yet to be recorded, and Cohen didn’t disclose the price.
Cohen, a part-time Palm Beach resident, plans to raze the long-vacant Carefree Theatre and build a new theater on the site. He paid $3 million for the Carefree and surrounding sites last year.
