Coconut Creek is embarking on an ambitious journey to create a new downtown with the 'MainStreet' project, a massive mixed-use development that promises to redefine the city's urban landscape. After two decades of planning, the City Commission has made a pivotal move by approving the first of two necessary land rezoning votes, setting the stage for MainStreet's realization. This innovative project is strategically situated between Lyons Road and State Road 7, and between Wiles Road and Sample Road, with completion anticipated by the end of 2024.

MainStreet is set to become a vibrant hub, offering more than 2,000 new homes, parks, and a variety of shopping and dining options. The development will encompass 16 new blocks, featuring a diverse range of residential options including townhomes, villas, and condos, alongside rental apartments that could soar up to eight stories. The plan also includes a picturesque lakefront park, bicycle lanes, and a public recreation center, enhancing the community's lifestyle offerings.

Commercially, MainStreet is expected to provide up to 225,000 square feet of space, set to become home to restaurants, retail shops, and a grocer, with a focus on Lyons Road. The project also pays homage to the area's agricultural roots with the inclusion of Johns Park, named after the Johns family who historically owned the land.

The development team, led by GSR RE Partners LLC and including 13th Floor Acquisitions LLC, Rosemurgy Properties LLC, Schmier Property Group Inc., and Giles Capital Group LLC, is gearing up for a transformative journey. Each of the 16 blocks will undergo individual site-plan approvals, with initial work focusing on foundational aspects like lake excavation and road construction.

Mayor Josh Rydell expressed his enthusiasm for the project, envisioning MainStreet as a chance to bring a modern, amenity-rich downtown area to Coconut Creek. "This is going to be a development piece the city has envisioned for a long time," he remarked, highlighting the project's potential to invigorate Coconut Creek with a fresh, dynamic downtown experience.
