A Lucky’s Market grocery store and two Marriott hotels will occupy Dania Pointe, an $800 million, mixed-use development under construction in Dania Beach.
Kimco Realty Corp., the developer of Dania Pointe, told the Sun-Sentinel daily newspaper that the hotels and the grocery store will be part of the 102-acre development where a wooden roller coaster once operated.
The construction site is east of Interstate 95 and two miles south of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The roller coaster was razed in 2016.
Paul Puma, the southern regional president of Kimco, told the Sun-Sentinel that the company hopes to open some of the retail spaces at Dania Pointe in fall.
Construction of the first phase of the residential component of Dania Pointe is expected to start in September or October.
Lucky’s Market will occupy a 30,000-square-foot store at Dania Pointe, according to the website of Kimco Realty, a publicly held real estate investment trust with headquarters in New Hyde Park, New York.
Next year, Kimco expects to start development of a full-service hotel under the Marriott brand and another hotel under Marriott’s AC Hotel brand, which caters to young adults.
Previously announced tenants of Dania Pointe include Brandsmart USA, Hobby Lobby and TJ Maxx.
Tenants that will occupy the first phase of the development at Dania Pointe include eight restaurants: TooJay’s Deli, Starbucks, PDQ, Padrino’s Cuban Cafe, Outback Steakhouse, First Watch, Firehouse Subs and Burger King. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
