Developers Are Getting Creative In South Florida, And Turning Niche Parcels In To Big Draws
From Dania Beach to Downtown Fort Lauderdale, new developments are popping up
It’s 102 acres and it’s only a short ride from Fort Lauderdale International Airport. It’s called Dania Pointe, and it’s going to be a massive $800 million mixed-use complex that will have 800,000 square feet of retail, restaurant space, Class A offices, Marriott-flagged hotels, 400 luxury apartments and a public event space. Phase 1 opens soon.
Development in South Florida isn’t new – but the inventiveness of the transformations is. Dania Pointe is being raised where a amusement park once stood.
At other locations in Broward, a development group is embarking on what it calls “opportunistic” projects transforming golf courses industrial, corporate and warehouse parks millions of square feet at a time.
