Real estate developer and investor Christopher Partridge, along with his father’s Pompano Beach-based Partridge Equity Group, just filed plans with the city to rezone an 8.4-acre site in Deerfield Beach.

The zoning would allow for 326 mid-rise units on land just west of North Dixie Highway and north of Northeast Eller Street, according to the South Florida Business Journal. The property currently houses a 55-year-old marina, some vacant lots and a mix of single-family homes and small apartment buildings.

Partridge’s Deerfield Development Resources owns two of the 12 parcels, according to the publication. Earlier this year the company paid $3 million for 40,789 square feet of vacant land at 414 and 430 Northeast First Avenue.

The rest of the parcels are owned by a mix of companies and investors, with a majority managed by the Pennell family, who own Pennell’s Marine. In the Partridge’s site plan, several storage buildings that are part of the marina would be torn down.

The application is on the city’s planning & zoning board agenda for March. It would need Broward County Commission approval to pass.

Meanwhile in Virginia Key, plans to redevelop two city-owned marinas are still underway after months of multimillion-dollar bidding wars between developers vying for the property. [SFBJ] – Amanda Rabines
