Groundbreaking nears for mixed-use development in Tamarac
Tamarac Village would encompass 401 rental apartments, a two-story clubhouse for the tenants, and three commercial buildings
Construction of a downtown-style, mixed-use development in Tamarac may start soon.
Elise Boston, a spokeswoman for the City of Tamarac, told the Sun-Sentinel that construction is expected to start within the next few months and to conclude in late 2019.
The $30 million development, called Tamarac Village, would encompass a four-story complex of 13 buildings with 401 rental apartments, a two-story clubhouse for the tenants, and three commercial buildings with more than 44,000 square feet.
Part of the development site at the northeastern corner of Commercial Boulevard and Northwest 94 Avenue in Tamarac would be reserved for a city park.
The developer is Boca Raton-based JKM Developers. John K. Markey, the firm’s managing principal, declined to comment on Tamarac Village.
The City of Tamarac assembled the site of the development between 2006 and 2013.
The city government spent $16.6 million to acquire 17 properties including a bank building, a synagogue and vacant land. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
