The Broward County Commission will consider 10 major development proposals at its Aug. 16 meeting, including big mixed-use projects in Fort Lauderdale and Hallandale Beach.

Chateau Square in Hallandale Beach would have 726 high-rise units in two towers, 36 live/work units, 152,792 square feet of office space, 336,902 square feet of commercial/retail space, and a 280-room hotel.

Chateau Square in Hallandale Beach would have 726 high-rise units in two towers, 36 live/work units, 152,792 square feet of office space, 336,902 square feet of commercial/retail space, and a 280-room hotel.

In the largest project on the agenda, the Chateau Group would bring a mix of uses to its massive Chateau Square project in Hallandale Beach. The 8.8-acre site at 600 East Hallandale Beach Blvd. could be approved for 726 high-rise units in two towers, 36 live/work units, 152,792 square feet of office space, 309,000 square feet of gross commercial/retail space and a 280-room hotel. The developer also was to create two openings onto Hallandale Beach Boulevard and one opening on Federal Highway.

The project was designed by UN Studio with BC Architects as the architect of record. The residential buildings would be 40 stories tall. The current zoning code allows for up to 15 stories in that area of the city.

UPDATE: Chateau Group VP Esteban Koffsman said the county item was deferred because the city most vote on the project before the county. The Hallandale Beach City Commission will vote on the Chateau Square site plan on Aug. 17 on first reading and, if that passes, on second reading in September. Then it could go to the county commission.

The city memo notes that only 137,384 square feet of the commercial space would be leasable. The live-work units would wrap around the parking garages. It would have 1,795 parking spaces, instead of the 3,161 normally required for the project of that size, because of a request for parking waivers. Two media screens would cover the buildings.

Koffsman said the residential units would be a mix of condos and apartments. Chateau Group affiliate 600 Hallandale LLC acquired the site for $24.5 million in 2007.

More Mixed-Use In Hallandale Beach

The Oasis would have 500 residential high-rise units, 200 hotel rooms, 26,489 square feet of retail, 7,340 square feet of restaurants, 57,048 square feet of office and 1,691 parking spaces.

The Oasis by Romagnole Investment Properties could also reshape Hallandale Beach. Located on the north side of Gulfstream Park at 1000 and 1100 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd., the Oasis would have 500 residential high-rise units, 200 hotel rooms, 26,489 square feet of retail, 7,340 square feet of restaurants, 57,048 square feet of office and 1,691 parking spaces.

The 10.1-acre site would contain two 26-story towers for the residential units. There would also be mixed-use towers of 20 and 10 stories, plus a one-story commercial building.

Romagnole Investment Properties is managed by Mireya de Iadisernia and Guiseppe Iadisernia in Miami Beach.

The Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six in Fort Lauderdale could get a high-rise condo and office space in a plan filed by owner LXR Resorts, an affiliate of the Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX).

The 22.7-acre property at 2301 S.E. 17 Street with access to the Intracoastal Waterway along the causeway currently has a 380-room hotel with a conference center, a 123-slip marina and some marine-related buildings. It has development rights for 42 condos. The development plan would permit 58 high-rise condos – with units of up to four bedrooms instead of three – and 29,000 square feet of office.

LXR would demolish the dockmaster building and build five structures: two 11-story condo towers, a four-story office/retail building, a three-story parking garage with some mixed uses and a two-story valet parking garage. The plan would add 234 parking spaces to the property. County staff recommended denial of this application because a school impact study wasn’t submitted.

Hotel Could Be Added To New Business Park

The new Hillsboro Technology Park in Deerfield Beach could include a hotel. The master developers, a joint venture between Coconut Creek-based Butters Construction & Development and San Francisco-based Bristol Group previously got the 74.4-acre former golf course approved for about 1 million square feet of office and industrial space. They want to add a 101-room hotel to the plan.

In July, the developers sold part of the site for $2.2 million to Hotels of Deerfield LLC, an affiliate of MHG Hotels in Indianapolis, Indiana. According to its website, the new hotel would be a Fairfield Inn & Suites. The property is north of Hillsboro Boulevard between Fairway Drive and Northwest 4th Avenue. Its first building recently broke ground and has already landed some significant tenants.

Optima Plaza North, 1010 S. Federal Highway

The 28-story Optima Office North tower in Hallandale Beach is seeking approval from the county after the city already signed off. The building would have 272,302 square feet of office space, 12,508 square feet of bank space, 1,767 square feet for a café, 47,650 square feet for garden and reflecting pool decks on the fifth and ninth floors and 851 parking spaces. The parking spaces would be in the basement and in an eight-story garage at the base of the building.

This would be the second phase of the neighboring Aventura Optima Plaza, located just across the county line. In fact, the buildings would be connected. Optima International North, managed by Ariel Bromberg and Jose Bromberg, acquired the 1.75-acre site at 1010 S. Federal Highway for $13 million in May.

Invesca Development Group affiliate Strata Group has plans for 147 townhouses in Plantation. The Strata project would be in 21 buildings on the 13.5-acre site at 4350 W. Sunrise Blvd. Amenities would include a club house, a pool, three parks, beach volleyball, fitness trails, a fitness center and billiards. Units will range from 1,700 to 2,200 square feet with prices starting in the mid-$200,000s. Pompano Beach-based Invesca is led by CEO Chris Longsworth.

Business Park In The Works

Carolisa Group wants to build the Andrews Premier Business Park in Pompano Beach. The 140,000-square-foot industrial project would be located at 1698 N. Andrews Ave. It’s a few blocks south of Copans Road.

Fort Lauderdale-based Carolisa Group is managed by Paul D. Sinacore, Carole J. Sinacore, David Hench and Lisa Hench. The 6.1-acre site was acquired for $1.9 million in 2004.

Senior Living Proposed In Margate

A developer wants to build 100 mid-rise senior living units in Margate. The 2.5-acre site at the northeast corner of North State Road 7 and Northwest 31st Street is owned by 777 Properties, managed by Michael Shooster and Stephen Shooster in Margate. In addition to allowing the age-restricted residential units, the plan would reduce the permissible commercial square footage on the site from 96,500 to 87,275.

The site is listed for sale at $2.75 million on 777 Properties’ website. The developer was represented by attorney Nectaria Chakas.

Industrial Planned In Pompano Beach

A 80,000-square-foot industrial building has been proposed at 1840 N.W. 16th Street in Pompano Beach. The 5.1-acre site is owned by 16th Street Pompano Beach LLC, managed by Robert Fox, the CFO and senior VP of Auburndale-based Comcar Industries. It’s a family-owned freight carrier and logistics company. This would be its first South Florida location. It’s just off Powerline Road.

Self-Storage Facility Could Rise In Davie

A three-story self-storage facility could be built in Davie to serve the growing population along University DriveBMS Partners, managed by Sam Nehme and Marc Osheroff in Davie, want to rezone a 4.2-acre vacant site from 50,000 square feet of office space to 120,000 square feet of self storage. It’s located on the west side of University Drive, just south of where the Related Group built the Town at University apartments at 5500 N. University Drive. A Super Target is just to the south.

Catherine Donn of Craven Thompson & Associates is representing the developer in the application. The application indicates the property is under contract to Miami City Self Storage and would be branded as a CubeSmart. The property was acquired for $2.2 million in 2004.
