The Pier Lot is a prime redevelopment parcel prominently located as a landmark site between A1A and the ocean, and between Atlantic Blvd. and NE 5th Street including the pier surface parking lots. The site is intended to provide a combination of restaurants and eateries, beach and pier oriented retail, consolidation of the present surface parking in a parking structure within the Pier Lot or other surface configuration, passive open space, plazas, and potentially a water feature or some other amenity to attract families and visitors.
East CRA Pier Redevelopment Master Plan
The objective for the redevelopment of the site is to provide a development scheme that reinvigorates and revitalizes the beach area into an attractive, quality place for people to enjoy the natural environment of the beach, and while there, to dine, shop, stroll and enjoy the beauty of the beach area. The beach and the desired supporting uses are intended to be used by residents, visitors and the community in general. As part of the redevelopment project the City of Pompano Beach will undertake a Comprehensive Beach Restoration Plan to reinstate the dune system on the beach and provide for erosion protection and increased turtle nesting safety.
In addition to the pier redevelopment initiative, the CRA issued a $10 million bond to provide major streetscape improvements to Atlantic Blvd from US1 to A1A. The CRA’s goal is to create a grand promenade leading to the beach area with new lighting, landscaping and narrowed lanes to slow traffic and create a more pedestrian environment. The entire beach area including streetscape improvements to Pompano Beach Blvd, dune restoration and the creation of an active vibrant beach area are also underway.
