The Broward County Commission this week will consider for the first time three major residential building proposals with a total of almost 1,000 units.

Proposed are a 345-unit apartment development in Dania Beach called Florida Park, a 297-unit residential development in Hallandale Beach called Gulfstream Point, and the Nine Hundred building, a Marriott-branded condo-hotel on Hallandale Beach that would have 320 rental units.

The county commission will consider the proposed developments at a meeting set for Tuesday.

The site of the Florida Park project in Dania Beach is near a nature preserve. The county would require mitigation if the developer were to remove mangroves and wetlands from the site.

Florida East Coast Realty is proposing to build 297 residential units and 4,000 square feet of commercial space on the 0.9-acre site of the Gulfstream Point, located on the west side of Federal Highway across from the Gulfstream Park racetrack and retail center.

Hallandale Office Towers has proposed 320 rental units and 160 hotel rooms plus 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space for the Nine Hundred Building, which would rise 23 stories at 900 South Federal Highway in Hallandale Beach, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

The county commission also will consider a proposal to convert the former car-dealership location to a 40,000-square-root furniture store.

The owner of the 3.6-acre site 1413 North Federal Highway is a  joint venture of Stiles Corp. and the company that runs the Rooms to Go furniture retailing business. [South Florida Business Journal]  – Mike Seemuth
