The design review committee approved the site plan for Broadstone Oceanside at 1333 South Ocean Boulevard, which also includes a clubhouse, swimming pool and dog park, plus 27 boat slips and a six-story parking garage. The project owner is WH Pompano, LP. Alliance and Dev Motwani‘s Merrimac are the behind the project.

The limited partnership acquired the 5.8-acre site at 1333 and 1350 South Ocean Boulevard in June 2011 for $11.5 million, according to Broward County property records.

The design review committee also approved the site plan for Villas at Pompano Beach, a cluster of 20 three-story townhouses at South Riverside Drive and Southeast 8th Street. The project owner is IDP Development, LLC.

Gustavo Carbonell, an agent for the developers, told the committee the site plan for Villas at Pompano Beach will be adjusted to add a little more parking: “We have 12 parking spaces off-site,” but “we need two more on-site.”

Proposed developments approved by the design review committee advance to Pompano’s planning and zoning department for its review.

Pompano Beach is starting to feel the early stages of a new boom that is attracting luxury condo developers to redevelop the beachfront, while providing buyers with an affordable alternative to its southern coastal neighbors like Fort Lauderdale and Sunny Isles Beach.
