The Grand Staircase is the architectural centerpiece of the Esplanade Shopping Area in Palm Beach’s world renowned Worth Avenue shopping district. The existing escalator was under daily attack from the weather and salt water in the air and needed constant repairs. So Palm Beach County based commercial builder Rapp Construction Company was commissioned to turn the architects vision into a reality.
This was no easy feat as it had to be crafted to demanding standards while the surrounding businesses remained open. But Rapp Construction prevailed and The Grand Staircase is the perfect addition to Worth Avenue.
