A Coconut Grove-based developer proposed replacing a shopping center in Tamarac with 212 apartments.

Eden Multifamily LLC, led by its president Jay Jacobson, wants to build the apartments on the site of the shopping center at the northeast corner of West McNab Road and North Pine Island Road.

The Sun-Sentinel also reported that the owner of the Tamarac shopping center, called Colony West Shopping Plaza, demolished much of the property in 2016 instead of resolving building-code violations by repairing it.

Eden Multifamily proposed building a pair of four-story apartment buildings on the six-acre site.

The apartment development would be called Eden West and would have 31 studio units, 65 one-bedroom units, 86 two-bedroom units and 30 three-bedroom units.

The apartments would range in size from 586 square feet to 1,388 square feet.

Kathleen Gunn, assistant city manager of Tamarac, told the Sun-Sentinel that Eden Multifamily plans to meet with owners of nearby homes on Nov. 27 before presenting the proposed apartment project to the city’s Development Review Committee.

The Colony West Shopping Plaza is well known as the former location of Tamarac’s first public library, which opened in 1977 at 8601 West McNab Road.

Broward County closed the popular library in 2004, and without the crowds it attracted, business conditions at the shopping center declined. [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
