The Pompano Beach Pier Development encompasses approximately 6-acres and constitutes a major redevelopment initiative in the East CRA District. In 2010, a methodical and comprehensive process began that was focused on facilitating redevelopment of the Pier area, including the large municipal parking lot on the west side of the street from the Pier. The CRA assembled a technical team including CRA and City staff and outside consultants to determine the appropriate mix of uses by conducting market absorption, massing, parking and traffic analyses. The City needed a partner from the private sector to implement this redevelopment and in 2011 a Request for Qualifications was issued. The City received two responses and after evaluation recommended Pompano Pier Associates, LLC as the number one ranked firm. In 2013, the Development Agreement outlining the terms for 48,500 SF commercial development was approved that met the expectations of the public and the City Commission. A groundbreaking ceremony for the first parcel was celebrated on January 27, 2017, and construction for the new development will continue through 2020. This redevelopment project will transform the Pompano Beach waterfront, creating a world-class destination.
Pompano Pier Associates, LLC, is excited to bring this new development, which is called Pompano Beach Fishing Village, to the community. Two restaurants have been announced, Oceanic and Pompano Beach House. The two restaurants will be located directly north of the pier. Pompano Beach House is a casual upscale restaurant featuring steaks, chops, hamburgers, and salads in a stylish setting, complete with a rooftop bar. Pompano Beach House, operated by the same group that operates Grille 401 on Las Olas, is already under construction and anticipates opening towards the end of 2017. Oceanic is a seafood themed restaurant, owned by Raleigh, NC based LM Restaurants, which operates 32 restaurants throughout the United States. Three other credit tenants and a nationally known hotel brand plan on opening locations in the Pompano Beach Fishing Village as well.
