Dick’s Sporting Goods and BJ’s Warehouse have plans to open new stores in Coral Springs sometime next year. On April 17, the City Commission approved a request from Woolbright Coral Springs II, LLC to proceed with a $35 million project located at the northwest corner of Riverside Drive at Atlantic Boulevard. The company expects demolition of the existing structure should begin soon. BJ’s Wholesale Club plans an 86,678 square foot building and Dick’s Sporting Goods will be 54,000 square feet.
“These projects are a welcome addition to the City of Coral Springs. Retailers recognize that Coral Springs is an excellent place to do business and this project adjacent to the Coral Square Mall will offer shoppers more variety to better meet their needs,” said Paul Cawley, Director of the Coral Springs Economic Development Foundation.
Coral Springs Mayor Vince Boccard remarked that “over the past two years, the City has attracted many national retailers such as, Aldi, Allpets Emporium, Kohl’s, Marshalls, Sports Authority, and other others. This is a testament to Coral Springs as a thriving business community, committed to working hard to attract businesses and helping them succeed.”
“This additional retail project, along with new residential development at Daniela Springs and the former Broken Woods golf course, new industrial projects and downtown redevelopment, show that Coral Springs continues to be a destination of choice for families and businesses, plus demonstrates our commitment to invest in our community,” City Manager Erdal Donmez added.
