City of Pembroke Pines Breaks Ground on $60 Million Civic Center

Mayor Frank C. Ortis, City Officials, & Design/Build team of Cartaya & Associates/Stiles Construction “Dig” into the Future on May 4, 2015


On Monday, May 4, 2015 City of Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank C. Ortis, Vice Mayor Iris A. Siple, City Commissioners Angelo Castillo, Jay Schwartz, Carl Shechter, and City Manager Charles F. Dodge will break ground on the future site of the Pembroke Pines Civic Center, a 60 million dollar complex located in the city’s mid-town district.

As the second-largest city in Broward County, Pembroke Pines has invested in the planning and development of the complex for more than a decade to infuse the city with an urban energy. The multi-purpose complex will include commercial, cultural, and residential components that will serve as the centerpiece for City Center. The expansive center will feature entertainment venues, apartments, office/ retail space, restaurants, and a hotel on the 80 acre site near the intersection of Pines Boulevard and Palm Avenue.

Civic Center design plans include a new city hall, a 3,500-seat state-of-the art performance/ conference space, a stand-alone Commission Chambers, and the Frank C. Ortis Art Gallery and Exhibit Hall at City Center. The 11,000 square-foot, two story art gallery was named after Mayor Ortis in honor of his commitment to the cultural arts.

Pembroke Pines was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” grant for $50,000, and a $462,000 Tourist Development Tax Grant to develop and implement the inaugural event and building of the public plaza at Civic Center. The outdoor space which connects the facility with the surrounding communities will be used for multi-disciplinary performances and community engagement events.

“We are overjoyed that we can start building the future of Pembroke Pines,” said Mayor Ortis, who has served as mayor since 2004. “This is a great city to live and work in. The Civic Center will not only provide city services to our residents, but will also introduce exciting cultural and entertainment opportunities to the community-at-large.”
