Panel OKs house for Palm Beach property sold by Warhol star Jane Holzer

A proposed Mediterranean-style house designed by one of the newest members of the Architectural Commission won the board’s unanimous approval at its most recent meeting.

The house’s architect, Commissioner Thomas Kirchhoff, recused himself from the discussion of the project at 147 Dunbar Road, citing a conflict of interest. He also didn’t participate in the votes to approve the architecture and recommend that the Town Council approve two code variances needed to build the North End house. 

The house will be built on property that for many years was  home to Palm Beach businesswoman, art collector and Worth Avenue landlord Jane Holzer. Holzer — a former model who acquired the nickname “Baby Jane” Holzer when she starred in avant-garde films made in the 1960s by the late Andy Warhol — has moved across town to an oceanview house in the Estate Section.
