Atlantic Park (Approved)

Between this, a potential arena, Something in the Water, and the recent reality show about the gospel choir, I love what Pharrell and his people are doing to put the area further on the map. So far, he’s living up to the ambitious promises he told Gayle King about after SITW wrapped up in 2019  

Keep it going, and inspire others locally!

Do we know who the construction company for the project is yet?  I wouldn't be surprised if it's Armada Hoffler as they've been partnering with Venture on a couple projects as of late (including the Military Circle proposal) and Armada Hoffler's current project at the oceanfront (27th street apartments) is set to wrap up in the third quarter of the year.  That lines up nicely with the proposed starting date of this project, but we'll see.

 

Here's the link to the marketing flyer that Venture put out with the site plan at the bottom: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BKabq2qoAGsqakekAH6X7MAhM5t2gA_8/view?usp=sharing

I know the presentation itself is from 2020, but I wonder how old this particular rendering is, to still have the proposed arena? That fell through in what, 2017? I'm guessing the film and sound studio is through Pharrell.

I think this represents a mishmash of projects which like Atlantic Park which are currently in development, the Sports Center and Vibe District which already exist, and the New Pier, and Arena, which have been proposed in the past but have yet to happen. The arena was originally proposed for the site where the Sports Center was built.

Project has gone back before the planning department, for what exactly I don’t know. There is a note that it has been deferred for 30 days at the request of the developer so that they can complete a parking and traffic study.

I'm thinking this is why.... Neighbors demanded parking plan/study.

Several items associated with Atlantic Park are on the June 9th docket. Things mentioned are nightclubs, restaurants, breweries, surf park, and mixed use development. Should be renderings coming up within the next week.

Groundbreaking first quarter of 2022. Good to finally have a firm date, but wish they were breaking ground this year. I'm ecstatic though that it looks like we'll finally get one of these proposals across the finish line.

There is an office building in the pre-design stage that will be added to the Atlantic Park development. I believe this was mentioned as a *possibility earlier but this is now officially a thing. Do not expect the office building to be built until a later phase.

This week, the developer is supposed toadvance to the next phase: finalizing construction plans.

That’s not going to happen on time, says City Manager Patrick Duhaney, who blamed rising material costs in a letter to the City Council on Friday.

Because of the delays, the City Council will vote on extending the development agreement next month. It may include allowing the developer with more time to secure financing, according to Duhaney’s letter.

I swear if this falls through AGAIN at the last minute… I’m sorry, but other areas don’t have anywhere near the trouble getting projects financed as we do in HR. It’s just dumbfounding to me, this project is basically a home run. It’ll practically print money if they can get the thing out of the ground. Starting to question that start of 2022 groundbreaking.,,

Completely unrelated. I'm sad about SITW too, but it has no bearing on the completion of this project. He's a backer and an investor, but Venture Realty is the lead. He couldn't pull it if he wanted to, and I'm certain that whatever funds he has already contributed are contractually obligated.
