Greystar Cocomar, an Industrial Venture, Slated for Lyons Road and West Atlantic Boulevard, Coconut Creek, Florida

Developers hope to move forward with an industrial development in Coconut Creek, Florida. Dubbed “Greystar Cocomar,” the venture would primarily comprise industrial space but in the future, could allow for retail and office space.

The South Florida Business Journal reports that the project will require more than 400,000 square feet of new construction and comprise three buildings measuring 32 stories above grade. The venture will sit on a 36-acre build site, which is presently unoccupied.

The venture’s located in Coconut Creek, Florida.

Plans also call for 308 parking spots. The venture’s located in a wetlands-heavy area––just north of the Fern Forest Nature Center. Yet, part of the project’s approval requires developers to preserve some of the region’s native areas. Upon completion, Greystar Cocomar could create more than 850 jobs and will cost $34 million to complete.

Corwil Architects Inc. is the architect. HSQ Group inc. is the civil engineer, and Lennar Corporation LLC is the general contractor. Sitework could start later this fall if everything goes according to plan. Right now, the venture’s presently seeking various approvals from the City of Coconut Creek.

The venture requires preserving more than seven acres of the area’s native wetlands.

Greystar Cocomar’s address is Lyons Road and West Atlantic Boulevard, Coconut Creek, Florida, 33066, in Broward County. The development is directly south of Coconut Creek High School.

  1. 32 stories in height? Perhaps 32′ in height.

    I am against this project,
    we need to leave some of the beautiful wetlands, vegetation and parks alone
    for the residents of Florida to enjoy.
    Not every corner needs to have concrete buildings

  3. At this time i do not beleive this will be beneficial for surrounding areas.
    Between traffic, vegeitation loss, and disturbance of peace for the adjacent communites, we firmly are not in favor for this project… which is echoed by many.

  4. Honestly, there is a health issues in the forested area with people living there in unsanitary conditions. That said, the city should convert this area into a park connected to Windmill Park, through a bridge and a pathway that connects to Lyons, and restore some of the wetlands. The current canopy, although it has various invasive species, helps keep temperatures down by avoiding more concrete and asphalt alleviating city heat island effects .
