Rappelling to End Homelessness



Save the Date!  Saturday, February 2, 2019




Rappelling to End Homelessness is a new event for The Lord’s Place.  Staffed by the experienced and professional team at Over the Edge(overtheedgeglobal.com), this event will be sure to bring a new daring crowd, and bring The Lord’s Place name and mission to new heights!  On February 2, join us at the Comeau Building in downtown West Palm Beach. Two rappelling stations will be set up throughout the day, during which there will be regular downtown foot-traffic and the well-attended Greenmarket.  Join us as a sponsor, dare to rappel yourself, or “Toss the Boss” where a group can fundraise and the boss is challenged to rappel!  Whatever your risk level, there is an opportunity for everyone to be involved!

Who Can Go Over the Edge?

Anyone who has the guts and can raise a minimum of $1,000 can rappel. Participants must weigh between 110 and 300 pounds. There is no age limit to participate.  It costs $1,000 because this is what it is going to take to help each of our clients end their cycle of homelessness in Palm Beach County!

Join the Committee!

This event is gaining height and speed!  Join this fun committee today to help spread the word and increase awareness for the clients of The Lord’s Place.  Click here for more details.

Too scared to go yourself, how about “Tossing the Boss”?

By raising $2,500 or more, employees will have the ability to “Toss the Boss.”  Watch out though, companies can set it up with a twist!  If employees don’t fund raise the $2,500, the boss can choose who goes Over the Edge.  OR, if the $2,500 is met, the boss can match the donation and send an employee!  Click here for more details.

100 percent of the funds raised from Rappelling to End Homelessness will go directly to benefit the mission of The Lord’s Place.

Registration will open in November 2018, and will be limited to 90 rappellers.

Comeau Building featured in District Newsletter in Downtown West Palm Beach!

One of our stunning historic properties, The Comeau Building was featured in The District Newsletter, a local publication in Downtown West Palm Beach! What a great feature, complete with historic images of this stunning historic building!




Handsome Comeau-ver

The jammed-to-the-rafters Wine Dive popped its last cork in its huge, 7,000-sq. ft. space on the ground floor of the historic Comeau Building more than a year ago.  The high-profile space is now getting a major makeover, courtesy of building owner, David Associates. Expect to see new tenants by November in smaller spaces within the footprint, with retailers facing Clematis and office space inside.

Heralded as a “skyscraper” by the Palm Beach Post-Times in 1926, the 10-story, $1.5 million Comeau Building won a heated, head-to-head race to completion with the Harvey Building, just around the corner on Olive, by a few days.  Known for its massive, ornamental columns and dramatic, wrought iron lanterns that still hang from the ceiling in the two-story arcade, its developer was the distinguished, 1920s financier and business figure, Alfred J. Comeau.

Designed by architect Henry Stephen Harvey, West Palm’s mayor from 1924 – 1925 (he also designed Palm Beach’s very pretty Town Hall, the Guaranty Building, the Holy Trinity Church on Flagler… and the Harvey Building), the 100,000-sq.ft. Comeau boasted the latest in construction techniques – reinforced concrete – and was called “fireproof.” But, ahem, a fire broke out in a law office in 1986 and three floors suffered damage… because there were no sprinklers. Modern features back then included an attractive glass mail chute connecting every floor, ice water pumped to drinking fountains on each floor, and high- speed elevators for the time.

The grande dame of Clematis St. stood strong through the infamous hurricane of 1928 that reduced much of downtown’s construction to matchsticks. DISTRICT publisher Carey O’Donnell handled PR for the building (where she launched her agency) in 1996, helping to get it added to the National Register of Historic Places. Early retail tenants included swanky shops from NY’s Fifth Avenue, but the tumultuous economy of the time led it to being sold under bankruptcy on the courthouse steps in 1932 for just $130,000.

“The Comeau is an extraordinary building that presents the area’s rich history to the community every day, while serving as a vital, 21st century office environment,” said David Associates Marketing Manager, Brooke Murphy. “We have also owned the Harvey Building for several years, and fully understand the hard work it takes to maintain these historic gems. It all pays off with very happy tenants and a great relationship with both the city and its residents.”
