The main feature of the 400 block of Clematis St. is the City Center project, which was completed and fully occupied in mid-2009. The cloud that hung over the project during its initial construction phase was lifted in 2008 when the group that was suing the City over the project reached an agreement with the City. This great project has added considerable life to the 400 block of Clematis St. and all surrounding blocks. The City Center includes the new City Hall, the new city library (which moved from the 100 block of Clematis Street), and the Palm Beach Photographic Centre.

In February 2009, workers put in sidewalks and landscaping around the City Center, one of the last steps before completion. Large and small palm trees appeared all around the grand entrance to the new City Hall and library. The various city offices moved from their other locations dispersed throughout the city, into the new City Hall, in the third week of March. The library also began its move at that time, and the moves were completed by early April. Parking spots were allotted in the new parking garage in the 500 block of Clematis Street for all the new workers coming to City Center. This frees up more space in some of the other garages near the eastern blocks of Clematis Street for the general public.
