Why Invest in Coral Springs?

If you’re interested in multi-family properties, we recommend you invest in Coral Springs. 

Of course, the city has a wide range of great multi-family options. That includes upscale apartment complexes and homey condos as well as duplexes and triplexes that perfectly blend within attractive single-family neighborhoods. 

But more importantly, Coral Springs is a desirable city for growing families. 

Tucked along the Everglades, the city offers an easy commute to Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and even Miami. Coming home to Coral Springs means leaving the traffic congestion and crowds of tourists that affect some of the more popular cities in South Florida.

Coral Springs neighborhoods boast manicured lawns, clean streets and homes that look well cared for. The city government has a commitment to making Coral Springs a desirable place to live for its residents. Recently, the city has attracted exciting economic development projects that will bring valuable businesses to a growing downtown.

Join us on a tour of one of our favorite cities in South Florida! We know you’ll want to invest in Coral Springs.

Coral Springs City Hall

City Hall is a $38 million building that opened in 2018 as an anchor for the new downtown development. 

The five-story building, at 9500 W. Sample Road, includes the commission chambers, the Coral Springs Chamber of Commerce as well as conference rooms available for the public to rent. A four-story parking garage on the property was included in the project to allow for more crowds in the growing downtown area. 

The Walk

The Walk at University, within walking distance of City Hall, has become a vital hub for shopping, eating out and gathering in Coral Springs. The Walk is family-friendly during the day and a trendy hot spot at night. 

The Walk spans two blocks along University Drive and includes restaurant like 4 Rivers Smokehouse, The Cheese Course, Hellenic Republic, La Fontana, Phat Boy Sushi and TwoJay’s Deli. Drinks and desserts can be found at Kilwin’s Chocolates, Starbucks, Jamba Juice and Crocante Cafe. 

For shopping destinations, The Walk includes Barnes & Noble, Trader Joe’s, A Nose for Clothes, the Vegan Cosmetics Store and a sizable list of professional services.

Downtown development projects

Cornerstone Plaza is one of two major economic development projects in the works in Coral Springs. Located at University Drive and Sample Road, the project will add luxury apartments and a boutique hotel to the downtown area. Restaurants, bars, an organic grocery store, fitness centers, offices and a cinema will complement the stylish living spaces to create a downtown experience in what the developers call “hometown suburbia.”

Cornerstone Plaza, pictured left, is currently under construction.

Just across the street, the city sold the land that once housed the former City Hall to a develop company. City Village promises to bring residents even more options for restaurants, shops, grocery and entertainment. 

The new developments will make the city a more desirable place to live and create opportunity to invest in Coral Springs.

A plethora of parks

The 51 parks that the city of Coral Springs maintains means that there are always new places to explore. Here is short list of our favorites:

Mullins Park, not far from the Coral Springs Center for the Arts, is a paradise for local recreation teams and pickup games. The 62 acres house basketball courts (pictured below right), a pool, artificial turf football fields and fields to play soccer, baseball, volleyball.

To say that the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex is a lovely place to swim completely undermines its worldwide impact. After all, it’s where Olympic gold medalist Dara Torres began training for her record-breaking comeback. 

Cypress Park has all the best ways to exercise: a fitness track around its 46 acres, baseball and soccer fields, a playground and, yes, a trendy pickleball court.

Don’t forget the city’s nature preserves like the 68 acres of Tall Cypress Natural Area and Sandy Ridge Sanctuary, which gives a home to gopher tortoises, among other native species.

Betti Stradling Park on Wiles Road, pictured top right, is one of the many parks that caters to children. It also includes a skate park and paved walking trails.

Arts & Culture

The city of Coral Springs actively fosters the growth of the arts. The Center for the Arts hosts everything from touring Broadway musicals and nationally known artists to influential speakers and local tribute bands. The Coral Springs Museum of Art, housed in the same building, boasts exhibits that both have local meaning and national impact. 

Coral Springs’ artistic expression can be found throughout city limits, through permanent art sculptures, the ArtWalk and temporary art displays. In fact, the city requires any new construction or redevelopment projects over a certain size to contribute to the city’s Public Art Program, either through a donation to the fund or by installing an art piece on their property.
