In a move that could reshape Plantation Corporate Center, a developer has proposed constructing an apartment complex within the existing office park.
The city’s Planning & Zoning Board is set to deliberate on the proposed land use amendment for “Water’s Edge” on October 3. This transformative project is earmarked for the 22.4-acre site situated at 1600 S.W. 80th Terrace, a location presently hosting office buildings measuring 125,000 and 123,000 square feet.
Plans for Water’s Edge call for a housing complex boasting 395 apartments and an extensive parking facility, encompassing a total of 1,556 parking spaces. Among these, 626 spaces will be allocated within a parking garage, offering both convenience and practicality to residents. Moreover, the complex is poised to feature a well-appointed pool area, elevating its desirability.
As part of this development, prospective residents can expect a diverse range of living spaces, including 188 one-bedroom units, 171 two-bedroom units, and 36 three-bedroom units. The variety of housing options aims to cater to a wide demographic and their varying needs.
The developer is also collaborating with established firms, including Miami-based MSA Architects, Apopka-based Finfrock for the pre-cast concrete parking garage, and the local planning expertise of Leigh Robinson Kerr & Associates.
This initiative reflects a growing trend in South Florida, where developers are increasingly replacing surface parking lots with structured parking while incorporating residential components.
