Brelford/Providencia Park (Downtown CRA
Located just north of the downtown area, the Brelsford / Providencia Park area is a mix of residential and commercial property. Also known as The Industrial Chic District, the area located adjacent to the FEC railroad line and originally developed for industrial uses, is currently incompatible with bordering areas. However, the existing structures provide an opportunity for an avant-garde neighborhood that promotes less conventional housing types such as live-work units and lofts. Comparable to a warehouse district, this area will appeal to emerging artists, individuals seeking atypical housing choices and small start-up businesses.
The CRA also envisions the area as a target for a medical village concept, taking its development cues from Good Samaritan Hospital at Dixie and Palm Beach Lakes. In 2014, construction on a major apartment complex commenced at Quadrille and Dixie.
