The Broward County Commission will consider four major development proposals for the first time at its May 10 meeting, including what would be the tallest tower in Fort Lauderdale.

Four Major Projects On Broward Agenda 2Kolter Group’s 100 Las Olas tower would rise 46 stories, or 465 feet. It would be the centerpiece of an amendment to the New River Center site plan.The tower at 100 East Las Olas Blvd. would have 238 hotel rooms, 120 condos, ground-floor restaurant space, a parking garage and a pool deck. It was designed by SB Architects.

An affiliate of West Palm Beach Kolter Group acquired the 38,325-square-foot site in 2015 for $17.25 million.

New River Center already has approval for up to 400 hotel rooms, so the site plan amendment would primarily be for the additional residential units and retail space. The site would have 647,105 square feet of office space available to build, but Kolter Group said it doesn’t plan to build offices at New River Center.

Hotel Proposed In Coconut Creek

A 105-room hotel could be built near State Road 7 and the Sawgrass Expressway in Coconut Creek. The 1.76-acre vacant site at 5730 State Road 7 is currently zoned for 16,000 square feet of commercial space, but it would be rezoned for a hotel. It’s owned by Davie residents Alfred D. Griffin Jr. and Kim Griffin of Davie. They’re represented by attorney Scott Backman.

Village At Gulfstream Park Could Get Movie Theater

A Cinemex dine-in movie theater could come to the Village at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach. Gulfstream Park owner Stronach Group plans to build a 700-seat theater there, although the zoning approval would allow up to 2,500 seats. It would be built behind Frankey’s Sports Bar. It should open in 2017. Cinemex is an upscale Mexican theater chain. Its first U.S. location will be in Brickell City Centre. With retail, restaurants, and office space near its racetrack and casino, Gulfstream Park still has entitlements to build hotels and condos.

Industrial Project Proposed In Coconut Creek

Elite Aluminum Corp. wants to expand its business by building a warehouse and distribution facility in Coconut Creek. The company wants to rezone a vacant site on the north side of Johnson Road just west of Northwest 51st Terrace from commercial to industrial so it can construct an 88,863-square-foot facility. It acquired the 3.4-acre site for $2.25 million in 2008. Elite Aluminum manufactures insulated sandwich panels and enclosure systems for the commercial and residential construction industries. It’s based at 4650 Lyons Technology Parkway in Coconut Creek. Attorney Richard Coker Jr. represents the company in the application.
