POMPANO BEACH APARTMENTS: Two new residential buildings, with a total of 355 units, are being planned for the parking lots behind the Bank of America and Chase Bank buildings on East Atlantic Boulevard. The two bank buildings sit on opposite sides of NE 24th Avenue, just west of Publix.
Grover Corlew, the real estate investment management group that owns the bank buildings and the associated parking lots, has submitted plans to the City that are currently under review.
The proposed development is called Pompano Station.
An 8-story building with 208 residential units is being proposed for the 1.6-acre lot behind the Bank of America building, which is located at 2335 E. Atlantic Blvd., on the west side of NE 24th Avenue.
An 8-story building with 147 residential units is being proposed for the 1.2-acre lot behind the Chase Bank building, located at 2401 E. Atlantic Blvd., on the east side of NE 24th Avenue.
According to the site plan for the Pompano Beach apartments, each building features one-, two- and three-bedroom units, as well as studios. The buildings are courtyard-style and each has its own interior multi-level parking garage. The proposed parking structures would also serve the adjacent existing commercial buildings fronting Atlantic Boulevard.
Amenities include a swimming pool, clubroom, gym and co-working space on the ground floor of the building behind the Bank of America building. Both residential buildings would have a dog spa. The Pompano Beach apartments are designed to withstand hurricane force winds of 150 mph.
The western portion of the site behind the Chase Bank building is currently occupied by a drive-through banking structure and a building that houses a tax preparation firm.
In addition to the proposed residential development, an application has been submitted to the City to build a 6,932-square-foot public pedestrian plaza in an area on the east side of the Bank of America building that is currently used for parking.
The plaza is intended to activate the streetscape and enhance the pedestrian environment of the proposed development and existing commercial buildings.
The developer has also submitted an application for an amendment to the City’s code that would allow for the courtyard-style design of the residential buildings. Currently, the zoning regulations for the area of the project site require buildings over six stories high to have a tower-type design.
Grover Corlew is a Florida-based firm that focuses on acquiring, developing and operating office, retail and multi-family properties across the Southeast United States. The principals of the firm are Anuj Grover and Mark Corlew. The firm acquired the Bank of America and Chase Bank buildings in 2015.
