A shuttered veterinary hospital in Coconut Creek, Fla., could soon be turned into a mixed-use development that would include a self-storage facility and a pet lodge. Leder Hillsboro Co. filed an application with the city for the 7.62-acre property it owns at 4171 and 4181 W. Hillsboro Blvd. The planning and zoning board is scheduled to vote on the proposal today, according to the source.
Situated between Lyons Road and Florida’s Turnpike, the site includes a 10,000-square-foot building that once housed VCA Veterinary Hospital. Leder Hillsboro plans to demolish that structure as well as an existing kennel to build a 120,000-square-foot storage facility. The company will also construct a 15,000-square-foot pet lodge containing hundreds of large kennels. An existing 37,917-square-foot office on the property would remain but undergo renovations to the façade, the source reported.
Designed by Kenneth Carlson - Architect P. A., Gutierrez & Lozano Architects, and Keith & Associates Inc., the property will contain 170 parking spaces, two fountains and artificial turf fronting the street.
Leder Hillsboro is managed by Samuel Leder of Leder Corp. of Boca Raton, Fla.
