Overview / Comments


This gorgeous mixed-use development site is situated in the heart of Palmetto, Florida, just steps from the Manatee River. It is minutes from pristine white-sand beaches, cultural destinations, entertainment and shopping. The property is located directly adjacent to ItWorks! corporate headquarters with over 200 employees and across the street from Regatta Pointe Marina, restaurants and shops.

This 3.4+/- acre development site is prime for development that could include a boutique hotel, multifamily, office space or residential condominiums with ground floor or adjacent retail and restaurants, all with water views.

Due to the site's proximity to the public boat ramp, the CRA is requiring that a developer design and construct boat trailer parking on a portion of the site to accommodate approximately 20-30 boat trailer spaces.

The net developable area will end up being approximately 2 to 3 acres. Due to the current split zoning on the property, the Expectation is that a rezone to Planned Development Multi-Use (PD-MU) will be required. Residential density on the site can potentially be increased to 153 units through a Comprehensive Plan Amendment to change the Future Land Use (FLU) to Planned Community (PC). Existing Downtown Commercial Core (DCOMC) FLU permits up to 119 units.

The City of Palmetto and the Palmetto Community Redevelopment Agency are encouraging development in the Downtown Core by incentivizing projects that bring more activity to the area and accentuate this tremendous waterfront location. Development Incentives may amount to 8-12% of the total development cost paid back to the Developer (City Commission has ultimate discretion on Incentives).
