The 1301 South Ocean Dr. Building and the new and enhanced public facilities represent an 18-month collaborative effort between the City of Hollywood and The Related Group to dramatically improve a beloved public beachfront destination. Once completed, the project will be a focal point and place of pride for the community.
Beachfront Preserved Forever
First and foremost, the pristine beachfront will remain unchanged and untouched. It will always be a public beach that is separated from the 1301 South Ocean Dr. parcel and by Surf Road.
Beachfront Access + Public Amenities Dramatically Improved
The project will be transformative — vastly improving the experience for all visitors and beachgoers now and for decades to come. A new, larger state-of-the-art community center will replace the existing facility and include meeting rooms, a fitness center, and a restaurant. The proposed development improves public access to the beach while protecting the integrity of the dunes. New restrooms and public showers will be developed in addition to increasing the green space, plazas, and parking spaces for the public and community at large.
Financial Benefits for the City and Community
All of these improvements are being made without a single cost to the taxpayer. In fact, the economic benefits from this project consist of an estimated $16 to $35 million closing rent payment generated from the proceeds of the condominium with expectations that the rent will approach $50 million. These funds will help the city fund capital improvements throughout the city without a single cost to the taxpayer.
This project will generate revenues of (estimated) $3.5 million for the city. These funds help ensure our city can provide improved services to the community.
An additional (estimated) $3.9 million of annual tax revenue will be generated from this project for Broward County, Broward County Public Schools, South Florida water districts, and South Broward hospitals.
