Brownfield Redevelopment Designation
The Pinnacle Property designation will be discussed at the June 7th Regular City Commission Meeting at City Hall, 2600 Hollywood Boulevard, Room 219. The meeting begins at 1:00 p.m. It is Item #20 on the Agenda. The Regional Activity Center (RAC) designation IS NOT on the June 7th Agenda, as previously advertised in a local newspaper. We regret any confusion the inaccurate advertisement may have caused.
What are Brownfields?
Hearing the term Brownfield can be unsettling, as most people associate it with properties that are contaminated or polluted and in need of cleanup. While some Brownfield sites are contaminated, many are not and contamination is not required to designate an area or property as a Brownfield.
A Brownfield designation is a common tool used in redevelopment because it creates access to additional funding resources. The designation includes any property where expansion, redevelopment or reuse is complicated by actual or perceived contamination and is generally considered helpful for the redevelopment of areas.
In Hollywood, the designation was most recently used when the City and CRA designated the Adams Street parcels in downtown as such.
- Is there a timeframe to opt out of the designation?
- Can I decide later to opt in? If so, how?
- How will the value of my property be impacted if it is within a designated Brownfield?
- How will the value of my property be impacted if the property next to or around me is designated and mine is not?
- Will this designation be reflected with the Broward County Property Appraiser?
- As a home owner how will this benefit me?
- As a business owner how will this benefit me? For example: property taxes, business taxes, loans, etc.
Is a Brownfield Designation Allowed?
The State of Florida has provided in the Brownfields Redevelopment Act, cited as Florida Statutes Section 376.77 - 376.85, for the designation, by resolution of a municipal governing body, of one or more parcels as a "brownfield area," and for the corresponding provision of environmental remediation, rehabilitation and economic development. The Act was enacted to reduce public health and environmental hazards on existing commercial and industrial sites by offering incentives to encourage responsible persons to voluntary develop and implement cleanup plans.
Broward County has been delegated the authority to administer the Florida Brownfields Program on behalf of the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Why Designate an Area as a Brownfield?
Cleaning up or investing in Brownfields properties facilitates job growth, utilizes existing infrastructure, increases local tax bases, removes development pressures on undeveloped open land, and helps to improve and protect the environment.
Other benefits include:
- Creates jobs
- Prevents the premature development of greenspace
- Encourages the highest and best use of blighted properties
- Minimizes or eliminates the need for environmental enforcement or state-funded cleanup
- Encourages community revitalization
- Voluntary Cleanup State Tax Credits
- Additional State Grants, and Revolving Loan Eligibility

Pinnacle at State Road 7 Proposed Brownfield Area
Pinnacle 441 LLC. and Pinnacle 441 Phase 2 LLC. (Pinnacle) owns the property generally located at the southwest corner of Johnson Street and State Road 7; 820-890 N State Road 7 and 6028 Johnson Street – Folio Nos. 5141-13-04-0110 and 5141-13-04-0080 (Property). The Property is slated to be a mixed-use development. Phase I is under construction (113 residential units and 8,300 sq. ft. commercial space) and the Phase II Site Plan will be considered by the Planning and Development Board in the upcoming months (100 residential units including live-work space).
Regional Activity Center Proposed Brownfield Area
The Regional Activity Center (RAC) Land Use area of the city is approximately 1,480 acres of land. This area is located within proximity to major regional highways, railways Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, a Tri-rail station, residential uses, and includes Downtown Hollywood. The City anticipates that the continued redevelopment of Downtown Hollywood and several other redevelopment projects under construction or planned along U.S. 1, will be a catalyst for furthering the redevelopment of this area in the future consistent with the development pattern already in-place for this area.
The intent of the RAC is to encourage redevelopment and create a vibrant, high-intensity, high-density multi-use area. Accordingly, the designation of the RAC as a Brownfield Area provides property owners with regulatory and financial incentives to aid with redevelopment.. These incentives are available only if a local government adopts a Resolution that complies with the applicable procedural and substantive criteria. These incentives for private parties come at no cost to the City.
