Nice article. Heard Ft. Pierce is really improving a lot, did it get a bad rap in the 80s or 90s? I've read they have turned it around big time and are being viewed in lots of positive light.

Except during the hurricane season... :thumbsup:

Fort Pierce will probably become a second-tier city with the building boom. It will be like a Fort Myers type of city when the boom comes into effect. It seems most of Florida is in a building boom though.

Fort Pierce, Port St Lucie, Stuart, and Vero Beach all are booming but it will be interesting to see who will come out the big winner on the Treasure Coast (assuming you include Vero in that). Port St Lucie has been the big winner thus far as it was traditionally insignificant and is now as big as Stuart and Fort Pierce together. Still, it lacks a downtown and doesn't have the courthouses, etc as it is was not the traditional center of St Lucie County, Fort Pierce was.

With Huizenga investing big bucks in Port St Lucie, though, ultimately I think it will become the dominant city on the Treasure Coast. All of this residential will have to pay off soon enough with some big commercial development.

Port St. Lucie decides it wants to create a new downtown. Possible designer: the same developer who built the new urbanist Abacoa community in Palm Beach County. Potential projects include a hotel, restaurant, and retail shops. The city also wishes to relocate its city hall and other government offices there.

A new project for the Treasure Coast:

St. Lucie County has approved Coconut Cove, a project that includes 110 single-family homes and 200 townhouses as well as 20 eight-story buildings containing 640 units. Units from $250k-450k.
