BBT Center in Sunrise

Broward County hired CallisonRTKL to design the phased, mixed-use master plan for the redevelopment of the county’s 140-acre BB&T Center property in Sunrise.

The Coral Gables office of CallisonRTKL will design office, residential and hotel properties, plus entertainment venues and a limited amount of retail space.

“The result is expected to be a live-work-play anchor community in western Broward County, just as Fort Lauderdale is an anchor community for eastern Broward County,” according to a county press release.

The redevelopment would replace much of the surface-parking space around the BB&T Center, a popular destination for large-scale entertainment events and the home of the National Hockey League’s Florida Panthers.

After the master plan is completed, Broward County plans to enter into a public-private partnership to redevelop the BB&T Center property.

In spring, the county plans to issue a request for proposals from companies that want to serve as the arena property’s master real estate developer.

CallisonRTKL has designed such shopping and entertainment destinations as LA Live in Los Angeles and the O2 district in London.

The Baltmore-based architecture, planning and design firm created the look of the Mandarin Oriental Miami hotel and Brickell World Plaza at 600 Brickell Avenue, the first high-rise office building in Florida with a LEED Platinum certification.

CallisonRTKL’s South Florida projects include two under construction, Plaza Coral Gables and Hilton Miami/Dadeland, and the renovation of Corporate Center at 110 East Broward Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale. – Mike Seemuth
