Back To The Basics: Creating A Downtown In Coral Springs
" 'This is the first major development to take place in Coral Springs in 40 years,' said Coral Springs resident John Ruffin, chairman of the city's CRA. 'When they developed the new cities in Florida, they didn't develop downtowns, they focused on the malls. Now we're going back to the basics of urban planning.'
The project, with 96,000 square feet of commercial and retail space, is the first of a series aimed at transforming the bleak intersection into a pedestrian-oriented downtown."
