Pompano Beach CRA Offers New Opportunity for Brokers to Find Master Developer

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- The City of Pompano Beach and Pompano Beach CRA have opened a new opportunity for all real estate brokers in the municipality's pursuit of a master developer for the City's Downtown and Innovation District. A 2% commission is in play for the transformative project, one of the last of its kind in the South Florida market. Currently, a Request for Letters of Interest (RLI) for a Master Developer has been issued, with a deadline of July 10, 2019.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for any broker who is well-connected with the nation's top developers," said Nguyen Tran, CRA Director. "We are seeking developers who understand our goals for the area, offer experience in prior projects of this scope and have the financial capability to undertake this project. By reaching out to the national real estate broker community, we hope to expand our list of potential applicants."

Over the past 20 years, the Northwest CRA has assembled over 30 acres of land within the almost 70-acre Innovation District. Most developable parcels are generally located along the busy I-95 corridor and Atlantic Boulevard, making this one of the last prime development opportunities of its kind in South Florida.

Based on a previous market analysis, the following can guide the master plan for a mix of desirable uses:
* Office/ Flex space 750,000 sq. ft.
* Retail 165,000 sq. ft.
* Residential 1,500 units
* Hotel/ Hospitality up to 420 rooms (multiple building)
* New City Hall/ Government Offices P3 opportunity
* Restaurant 35,000 sq. ft.
* Education open opportunities

In addition, as part of the marketing and branding strategy for downtown, the CRA envisions a creative and unique drainage system, possibly using linear waterway systems that create a visible and desirable asset for development parcels, much like the waterways in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and San Antonio, Texas (from a visual perspective). A stormwater conceptual master license has already received county approval and a drainage district will need to be formed. Design and construction of a creative and aesthetically pleasing drainage option can occur simultaneously with the vertical development.

The City has also invested heavily in cultural assets in the downtown area. The Pompano Beach Cultural Center, Bailey Contemporary Arts and Historic Ali Cultural Arts are spread out over three distinct geographic areas in the Downtown providing opportunities for pedestrian movement between them. Highlighting these facilities and using them as anchors in the master plan will provide a ready-made set of assets to build upon for future redevelopment.

Brokers can direct developers to the City's eBid system to view the complete solicitation document, which can be downloaded for free as a PDF at: https://pompanobeachfl.ionwave.net/CurrentSourcingEvents.aspx.

Developers will verify in their response that they are represented by a licensed brokerage firm. The Letters of Interest must be submitted electronically through the City's eBid System on or before July 10, 2019. Developers must be registered on the City's eBid System in order to view the solicitation documents and respond to this solicitation.

Pompano Beach CRA Announces ‘Groundbreaking’ of Atlantic Boulevard Bridge

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- The Pompano Beach CRA (www.pompanobeachcra.com) is proud to announce the "groundbreaking" ceremony for the new Atlantic Boulevard Bridge. The marine-themed event will eschew the typical shovel in the ground for something "reel" fun. The new look for the bridge has been designed by Currie Sowards Aguila Architects and will be built by Burkhardt Construction. The public is invited to attend the ceremony which will feature speeches by company officials and local dignitaries.

The festivities begin at 10:30 am on Monday, December 11, 2017 at The Foundry restaurant.

"This new bridge will become a tremendous asset to the City," said Horacio Danovich, City of Pompano Beach CIP Manager. "In addition to the practical function, this bridge is a symbolic 'welcome' to all who visit our beachfront. In the past couple of years, the beachfront has undergone a magnificent transformation. From a once blighted area, it is now emerging as a popular site attracting restaurants, businesses and a hotel."

Currie Sowards Aguila Architects (www.csa-architects.com), who designed the instantly iconic Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage, has been tapped to design the new bridge. The Atlantic Boulevard Bridge will display a playful design concept which incorporates sail-like components and a marine-themed mural at the bridge tender house base.

"When people see the bridge, they will probably assume we were influenced by the sail-like components and art work of our garage design, however, we actually designed the bridge first," explained architect Jess Sowards. "We knew these two structures needed to have a cohesive style, but we created each with its own personality. This area will truly be a gateway to the city, and we are thrilled that our designs will be welcoming residents and visitors alike for decades to come."
