It contains a variety of office, commercial and religious uses. Its retail offerings include restaurants, coffee houses, bars, specialty shops and clothing stores. The Neighborhood Commercial District Plan will establish a vision for the area and identify specific improvements that will position the Palma Ceia commercial district as a vibrant, mixed used neighborhood commercial center.
