On Feb. 11, the Dania Beach City Commission will consider plat approval for Grifin Living in order to combine the five parcels at 2730-2750 Griffin Road and 4850 S.W. 28th Ave. into a single parcel of 2.3 acres. The property is west of I-95. The maximum density would be 79 mid-rise residential units and 17,000 square feet of commercial space. The city will consider the developer’s site plan, with more details on building design, at a later date. On Feb. 19, the city’s Planning & Zoning Board will consider an amendment to the site’s development plan to allow multi- family and mixed-use.
The Broward County Commission would also have to approve the changes.
The property was acquired for $1.62 million in November 2019 by 2750 Griffin Holdings, an affliate of Boca Raton-based BSD Capital, which is led by Guy Levintin, Sharon Sharaby, and Adie Vaknin. It currently has a small restaurant building constructed in 1956 and a mini apartment complex built in 1951. They would both be demolished.
Attorney Rod A. Feiner, who represents the applicant, couldn’t be reached for comment.
The oldest city in Broward County, Dania Beach has recently seen an influx in development. The Dania Pointe project just east of Interstate 95 and south of Grifin Road has introduced new shops and restaurants to the area, with apartments, a hotel, and the new headquarters of Spirit Airlines on the way. The city’s location along Interstate 95 and near both the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades has made it attractive for both residential and hospitality development.
The Griffn Living site is also a short trip from a Tri-Rail station. The passenger rail line connects to major employment centers like Miami International Airport, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. Tri-Rail will stop in downtown Miami once rail system improvements are completed.
