The Borland Center is designed to reflect the culture South Florida: modern Mizner-style architecture that is upscale, yet casual and relaxed. The Borland Center Facilities are located on a pedestrian “main street” with sidewalk cafes, shops and residences. The interior lobby and courtyard has both indoor and outdoor areas where people in the community can gather. The Borland Center is named in honor of golf course designer, Bruce Borland, who lost his life tragically in a 1999 plane accident along with professional golfer Payne Stewart. He was a loving and caring man of genuine character who dedicated his life to his family, to his God and to the community he so dearly loved. He was an active member and chairman of the Elder Board of Palm Beach Community Church and was passionate about how the church could reach out to the help its community in a larger way. Along with the founding pastor of PBCC, Dr. Ray Underwood, Bruce Borland championed the vision of creating a community-gathering place where the church facilities could be shared with the surrounding community for cultural, arts and educational family programs and events.
