The Zona Village mixed-use project would bring apartments, retail, restaurants and office space near the South Florida Education Center multi-campus hub in Davie.
Broward Collage, Florida Atlantic University, Nova Southeastern University, University of Florida and McFatter Technical College all have campuses in the area, so it’s a prime location to serve students, faculty and college staff. Zona Village’s design, by architecture firm FSMY, reflects the western style of the town’s downtown district.
Davie’s original name was Zona when it was founded in 1909. It was renamed after founder R.P. Davie in 1916.
The town’s Planning & Zoning Board will consider plans for Zona Village on Sept. 14. the project could go before the town council on Oct. 5.
Zona Village would be located on 3 acres at 3884, 3890 and 3940 S.W. Davie Road/64th Ave. The site is mostly vacant, except for a small restaurant building. Aventura-based 4th Ave Land Holdings LLC, an affiliate of residential developer Ceiba Group, acquired it in two transactions for a combined $2.76 million in 2015.
The project would total 359,594 square feet, or 214,318 square feet when the 390-space parking garage is excluded. The four-story building would have 209 apartments, 31,000 square feet of commercial space and 10,000 square feet of office space. The commercial space would include two bays for restaurants.
Its residential units would comprise 113 studio apartments averaging 544 square feet, 74 one-bedroom apartments averaging 760 square feet, and 22 two-bedroom apartments averaging 1,023 square feet.
Zona Village is planning to include a one-acre amenity deck featuring a pool, a gym, and other features that will cater to residents.
While it is expected that Zona Village will draw many patrons and residents from the colleges, the location is also great for commuters because of its proximity to major highways.
Troy Townsend of Pillar Consultants is the developer’s planning firm.
The project comes at the time when the Davie Community Redevelopment Agency is working on a plan to redevelop much of its downtown, potentially through a public-private partnership.
