The City of Hollywood, Florida’s Department of Development Services Division of Planning and Urban Design has released a memorandum detailing a request by HFL Landings Owner LLC, a joint venture between the Zurich-based Credit Suisse Asset Management and Honolulu-based Trinity Real Estate Investments. The proposal seeks to modify Diplomat Landing’s Planned Development Master Plan, introducing 350 condo units and 500 hotel rooms, which aligns with the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

The proposed modifications pertain to a site encompassing around 19.1 acres on the east and west sides of A1A, north of Hallandale Beach Boulevard. The modifications HFL Landings Owner LLC requested aim to introduce 350 multi-family units and 500 hotel rooms on the west side of the Master Development Plan. This reimagined Plan introduces four distinct areas: 75,000 square feet of commercial/office spaces, 350 multi-family dwelling units, 1,500 hotel rooms, and 150,000 square feet of Convention Center space.

The memorandum on the modification request, released this March, offers an intriguing parallel with a recent proposal from the Related Group and BH Group. In partnership with Trinity and Credit Suisse, these real estate powerhouses, based in Miami and Aventura, submitted a site plan application in March for an ambitious project adjacent to the Diplomat Beach Resort.

The project encompasses the construction of two high-rises – a 37-story condominium with 350 units and a 43-story hotel with 500 units. The hotel would sit atop the plaza between two parking garages, while the condo tower would sit south of the southernmost parking garage, featuring ground-floor retail at 3451 – 3690 South Ocean Drive. Dubbed Diplomat Landing, CFE Architects is the architect of the towers alongside Witkin Hults + Partners as the landscape architect and  Kimley-Horn as the civil engineer.

The original 1992 vision for the land involved the development of a resort community concept, including renovating a 655-room hotel, creating 386 residential units, and constructing relevant commercial and recreational facilities. In 1998, the City Commission greenlit the Diplomat Landing Planned Development Master Plan for the Diplomat Resort and Country Club. This sprawling complex, comprising multifamily residential units, hotel rooms, a convention center, retail spaces, and associated parking facilities, has been operational for several years.

The Planning Administrator, Mawusi Khadija Watson, recommends that the requested modifications and the Master Plan be forwarded to the City Commission for approval. Further scrutiny will be necessary during the Site Plan approval process to ensure alignment with recommended conditions of approval, Zoning, and Land Development Regulations, and the City’s vision. HFL Landings Owner LLC anticipates these site plans being processed over the summer.

The proposed amendments align with the City’s Comprehensive Plan and the City-Wide Master Plan. They uphold the Land Use Element and various policies of the Comprehensive Plan, as well as adhering to the guiding principles and procedures of the City-Wide Master Plan. The request is scheduled for review on June 13.
