The Broward County commission will consider six major development projects for the first time at its Aug. 11 meeting.
Duke Realty is currently building a 143,535squarefoot office building near the Shops at Pembroke Gardens on speculation and it’s already laying the entitlements for the next phase. The developer (NYSE: DRE) applied for another 299,999 square feet of office space on an 18.7 acre tract there. It’s on east side of Interstate 75 along Southwest 145th Avenue and just south of Pines Boulevard.
While Duke may not break ground there soon, making sure the land is entitled for offices is a sign that the developer has a long range plan to build office space there, as opposed to switching to the residential or retail markets that are hot right now.
