Crews are demolishing the old Pembroke Pines city hall
Pembroke Pines, Florida – For nearly five years, the building at the intersection of Pines Boulevard and Palm Avenue has been vacant, since the opening of the new city hall at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in 2017.
On Tuesday, crews were seen demolishing the old building.
The old property has been sold. He said the sale was good for the residents of Pembroke Pines for many reasons, according to a comment on Facebook made by Pembroke Pines Commissioner Angelo Castillo.
“The building is obsolete and is being torn down. It will become a medical office building with an assisted living facility building nearby. The sale of the old city hall property offset the cost of adding two stories on top of the voter approved civic center, which today houses city hall staff. It was a good business deal for residents who now have a state-of-the-art city hall complex at a vastly reduced cost, and that valuable corner where old city hall stood will go back on the tax rolls,” said Castillo.
The new complex, at 601 City Center Way, was named in honor of the longtime Pembroke Pines City Manager Charles F. Dodge.
The complex includes apartments, office, and retail space, restaurants, and serves as the new City Hall. The center also houses “The Frank” named after Pembroke Pines Mayor Frank Ortis.
