Your Guru was able to attend the Central Beach Alliance (CBA) membership meeting on Thursday, October 2nd, where we were given some preliminary information on the massive redevelopment of the site where the Galleria Mall is located.
An ambitious plan is in preliminary planning stages featuring the construction of several buildings including 1,645 residential units, a 150 room hotel, a senior residential facility, and a renovation of the mall itself. The plans seem quite comprehensive but are still open for community comment and nothing has been approved for construction at this time. A more final plan should be presented to the CBA in January, 2015, with that version to be submitted to the City of Fort Lauderdale for eventual approval.
Over the years, the site has evolved from what once was the Sunrise Mall, a modest strip mall, built in 1954.
In 1981 the mall was enclosed and developed into the indoor mall we see today, and re-named the Galleria Mall in 1980. In 2004, the new front entrance and the section of the mall that contains all the restaurants was constructed.
The main feature of the redevelopment plan will be right along the IntraCoastal Waterway where a 45 story condominium is planned. Tentatively named 2600 at The Galleria, this building will be the tallest of the new buildings and the developer hopes to construct 379 residential units, 165 hotel rooms, and 32,000 square feet of additional retail space. This tower is planned to be 45 stories tall.
Other sites feature plans:
-> A 17 story senior residential community of 326 units
-> A 15 story residential building of 236 units
-> An 11 story residential building of 108 units
-> A 14 story residential building of 238 residential units
-> A 24 story residential building of 167 residential units
-> A 28 story residential building of 198 residential units
