The most traveled gateway to the City of Lauderhill is about to get a major facelift thanks to new plans for an entertainment district. Initiatives including the Commercial Facade Grant Program (CFG) and the Business Improvement District are breathing new life into the city’s cultural, dining and shopping hub. As a result, civic pride and the strength of the local business community are on the rise.
At the forefront of their roster of projects is Lauderhill’s 38th Avenue Right-of-Way Improvement, a $4,000,000 undertaking. The project zone is located off SR7—the city’s main north-south thoroughfare—between 19th and 16th street. Once realized, it will become home to a number of dine-in restaurants, fashion boutiques, comedy clubs and more.
To complete the arts and entertainment district, and to create a fully immersive entertainment experience, Lauderhill plans to eventually connect this corridor to the Lauderhill Performing Arts Center (LPAC) and the Central Broward Regional Park, home of the only International Cricket Council (ICC) Stadium in North America.
With construction scheduled for completion in early 2021, the city has been actively showcasing the new developments coming to the area. Their goal is to attract prospective business owners, new residents and visitors. They also hope to enrich the sense of belonging and camaraderie in the corridor, presenting a consistent series of events for the community to enjoy.
A 320 unit apartment complex on 38th Avenue is already in development. With a full array of luxury amenities, these beautiful residential buildings called LePARC will complement the district, becoming home to working professionals and providing a pedestrian-friendly area where residents can enjoy the perks of the live/work lifestyle.
