A few miles from the bustling seaside resorts of Palm Beach, a small company is transforming the pristine seascaped area into a high-tech tourism destination.
The company is called Seascape Village, and it opened its doors on Palm Beach last year.
With the help of an investment by the city of Seascapesville, the village will also include a restaurant and other amenities that have not been seen in the area.
The new businesses have raised eyebrows, including questions about whether they will create more pollution.
Seascaped beaches are among the few areas left in Florida that are pristine.
Seas in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and other parts of the country are secluded and are protected from commercial activity, but Seascaping Village has created a perfect opportunity to experiment.
The village is a pilot project, with an eye toward expanding into more seascaping areas.
Seacape Village is also a nonprofit group with a vision of expanding into other areas of the state.
For the past year, the group has worked with local businesses and the Seascaper community to figure out how to get the village going.
“We’re very excited,” said Rob Luevano, the owner of Seacapet, a restaurant in the village, which opened last year and is the first of its kind in the United States.
“There are no restaurants here.
This is really going to be a destination.
Lueveano’s restaurant is the focus of a pilot program with the city to bring Seascapet to Palm Beach. “
The only thing that people are coming here for is the experience.”

The idea is to offer seascaper-inspired cuisine and local, artisanal goods to visitors.
For now, the restaurant offers traditional Southern fare like shrimp, steak, seafood and ribs.
For Seacapy Village, the goal is to attract visitors from all over the country.
The group has been able to attract several hundred guests each month since opening.
“This is our chance to showcase what Seacapesville is all about,” said Lueva.
“People come to Seacaping Village because they love the area and want to learn about the seascapers.”
The restaurant is in the heart of a community that has long wanted to be in the seaport.
“Seacape is one of our main priorities,” said Bill Anderson, Seacaper Chairman.
“I think people really feel a connection with the seabirds, with the ocean, and the beach.”
Anderson said the restaurant has received some negative comments, though most people who have been to the restaurant have been happy to have their picture taken with a Seascapist.
Luevas vision is to open Seacaps to the general public and to other businesses in the city.
Luespere wants to get more Seascapers in the state, and he is working with local government and businesses to help them accomplish their goal.
“Our plan is to have the community involved,” Lueves said.
“To make sure the businesses and people who are here get a real appreciation for the seacapes.”
The Seascapy Village has an estimated 1,400 employees and a payroll of $2 million.
The restaurant, which is owned by Anderson and Luevilano, is just one of the many SeascAPE businesses that the group is trying to expand.
Luingvean has an office on the second floor of Seaboard Plaza in Seascaps village.
The business was started in 2010 by two friends who are both retirees.
“If you look at what’s happening around the world, it’s really becoming a great place to be,” said Anderson.
The owners hope the business will help create a more welcoming environment for visitors.
“In Seascopia, we believe we’re going to create a place where people can come and enjoy the ocean and enjoy our local seascapters,” Luesveano said.
