Seven major development proposals, including offices, residential, warehouses and a hotel, are pending in Miramar and could go before the city council early this year.
The southwest Broward County City’s Development Review Committee reviewed these applications at its November and December meetings. They need city council approval to move forward.
Space Coast Credit Union plans to build a 50,753-square-foot, three-story office building at the southeast corner of Miramar Parkway and Red Road. The 19.7-acre site is owned by Miami-based Sunbeam Development Corp., though the credit union probably wouldn’t need all of that land for its building.
The office would serve as a regional headquarters for Melbourne-based SCCU, which has 25 offices in South Florida.
Big developers would build single-family homes
A partnership between Lennar Corp. and CC Development Co. plan to build 537 single-family homes if they can secure a density increase.
The site is a former Univision facility at the southwest corner of Bass Creek Road and Southwest 172nd Ave. Coral Gables-based HBC Florida currently owns the 117.7-acre site, which is zoned for utilities.
Miami-based Lennar NYSE: LEN) is South Florida’s largest homebuilder and CC Development is led by Armando Codina and James Carr.
Plans for 280 apartments
A developer wants to build the 280-unit Boardwalk Apartments on the west side of Flamingo Road at Southwest 50th Street.
Southern Homes of Homestead, managed by Hector Garcia, acquired the six-acre site in 2002 for $1.1 million. It would be an expansion of a neighboring 72-unit community.
Hotel proposed in commerce park
A Springhill Suites Hotel is proposed in the Miramar Park of Commerce.
The five-story hotel would total 81,010 square feet with 124 rooms. It would be located next to the Hampton Inn, which is at 10990 Marks Way, just off Red Road. The land is owned by Sunbeam Development but the application was filed by Miramar Hotels, a Fort Lauderdale company managed by Sanjakumar Patel and Sadhanaben Patel.
Insurance company plans regional HQ
A regional headquarters building for Progressive Insurance would total 39,540 square feet.
The project is planned on the east side of Southwest 145th Avenue, in front of a government office building at 2650 Southwest 145th Ave. The 8.4-acre site is owned by West Miramar I LLC, managed by Michael Ibe in San Diego, California.
Warehouse renovation and expansion
A 165,000-square-foot expansion is proposed at a warehouse complex, which would be renovated.
The warehouse/distribution facility would total 267,325 square feet once completed. The addition would be mostly warehouse, with some office and storage space.
It’s planned at 7451 Riviera Blvd. The site is owned by Broward College, which has an automotive training center in part of the facility.
More growth for Miramar Park of Commerce
Sunbeam Development is seeking approval for one of the final warehouse distribution buildings at the Miramar Park of Commerce.
The company has already built more than 5 million square feet in this business park over the past 30 years and it’s almost out of industrial-zoned land. The new warehouse/distribution building would total 71,000 square feet at the northwest corner of Miramar Parkway and Executive Way. The site measures 8.1 acres.
