Developer reveals final phases of PGA Station in Palm Beach Gardens

PGA Station

BBX Capital Real Estate has revealed its plans for final phases of PGA Station, renamed from the PGA Professional & Design Center in Palm Beach Gardens, with an emphasis on public transit and walkability.

BBX president Seth Wise said the project is designed to accommodate a Tri-Rail station on the neighboring railway. The passenger line plans to extend service to Jupiter in a few years. This could potentially link this site to public transit stops from West Palm Beach down to Miami.

“What we are looking to do with this project is create a village environment with lots of streetscapes, trees and a pedestrian environment,” Wise was quoted as saying in the South Florida Business Journal.

The first part of BBX’s plan would include a five-storey, 111-room hotel, a four-storey, a 60,000 sq. ft. office building, and a 9,100 sq. ft. medical office building. Wise said BBX already has a buyer for the proposed hotel.

After that, BBX would build two office buildings, each four-storeys and 64,000 sq. ft. near the proposed Tri-Rail station. In between those buildings would be a five-level, 649-space parking garage that would serve both the office buildings and Tri-Rail. There could also be retail in the ground floor of the office buildings for the transit riders.

“We think the market is ripe now for a high-quality mixed-use office park to come to the market and a hotel is fantastic timing,” Wise said.

BBX is working with GliddenSpina, MSA Architects and Cotleur & Hearing on its plans for PGA Station.

This is just one of the real estate projects BBX is currently working on. Others include:

  • The Bonterra Communities home development in Hialeah in partnership with CC Homes and Altman Cos.
  • The Altis at Kendall Square apartments in partnership with Altmas Cos.
  • The 30-home Village at Victoria Park in Fort Lauderdale in partnership with New Urban Communities.
  • A joint venture investment in an office building and service station at Sunrise Bvd. and Bayview Dr. in Fort Lauderdale.
  • 89 townhouses at Centra in Pembroke Pines as part of a joint venture.
  • A joint venture to acquire a home development site in Miramar.
  • The Gardens on Millenia retail and apartment project in Orlando, also with several partners.
