Developer Jimmy Tate has submitted new plans for his Bahia Mar resort and marina, months after he withdrew his proposal due to increasing opposition. 

Tate’s revised plans call for a development with buildings up to 12 stories high, which is significantly lower than the 39-story towers featured in the original plan. The project, which would be built in four phases, also includes 651 residential units in seven buildings, a 250-room hotel, 151,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants, a boardwalk surrounding the marina and a pedestrian village on property owned by the city, architect Kobi Karp told the Sun Sentinel.

Karp said the developer hasn’t decided whether the residential units will be apartments or condos.

Tate withdrew his controversial proposal to upgrade the Bahia Mar hotel and marina, also home of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, in June. At the time, he said his investor group failed to negotiate a lease with the operator and the owner of the show that would have made Bahia Mar the long-term home of the annual event. The boat show’s lease ends in 2020, but Tate is expected to negotiate a longer-term lease, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Opponents of the withdrawn Bahia Mar project criticized plans to build condominium buildings and the project’s impact on traffic.

Tate’s group has a 46-year lease on the city-owned land where Bahia Mar is located at the southern end of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Here are new renderings of the latest proposal:
