They say, whatever goes up has to come down. The Dania Beach Florida Hurricane Roller Coaster in southern Broward County has been a landmark for residents and tourists since year 2000. Just this past week the demolition of the monstrous wooden structure has begun and it created a buzz through the south Florida community. The ride itself closed five years ago and hasn’t been operated since. Some are happy to see it go but some are sad and believe it or not, I rode when it reopened in 2000, lots of memories from my childhood on a wooden roller coaster!

Kimco Realty Group of New York is developing a 850,000-square-foot center in a joint venture with Master Development and Salzman Real Estate Advisors, Who have projects already through the Tri-County area of South Florida. This project will bring in about 17,000 construction jobs and 13,000 permanent jobs once its fully developed.

No leases of any retailers have been signed yet, But the 35-acre first phase, which will incorporate “big box” stores and discount retailers, is planned to open in the fall of 2017.

The second phase, which will include more retailers, restaurants, 1,000 residential units and two hotels, will follow in the fall of 2018. By that time, construction will be initiated on some of the 500,000 square feet of commercial office space.

Dania Pointe of Dania beach located just north of Hollywood Florida, will be one of the largest shopping centers in Broward County Florida. Dania Pointe will attract many visitors all the way from Southern Miami-Dade County up to The Northern parts of Palm Beach County because of Dania Beaches central location in South Florida. Over half a million cars pass by the location northbound on I95 per day! This development is sure to be a success and a great new addition to the city and South Florida.

South Florida Real Estate Market Recovery Ranked Best in the Nation

South Florida real estate salesThe South Florida real estate market is experiencing a larger bounce back than most housing markets around the nation.

Evidently, Palm Beach County, Broward County and Miami-Dade County are all seeing major jumps in their median sales price – making them some of the fastest improving markets in the country!

This is obviously great news for luxury South Florida home sellers who are hoping to get a respectable price for their South Florida property!

South Florida Home Sales

Here’s a breakdown of recent South Florida real estate market activity:

  • Broward County’s median price was $127,000, up 21 percent from the year before.
  • During that previous year, the median sales price in Broward County was $105,000.
  • That jump in Broward County was the highest jump of any housing market in the nation!
  • In Miami Dade County, the median sales price was $165,000, up 20 percent from the year before.
  • During that previous year, the median price in Miami-Dade was $138,000.

Although a lot of South Florida homes lost nearly half their value during the housing crisis, experts are now saying that the market is bouncing back from that drop.

Helping the situation is a lot of demand from investors as well as a shrinking supply of available South Florida homes for sale.

Rising rental prices are also driving more home buyers to the market.
