PALM COAST, FL – September 25, 2016 – The resurgence of a robust residential real estate market has spawned several commercial projects in Flagler County. Here’s an update on recent activity representing millions of dollars in construction value, permitting and impact fees, as well as future property tax revenue for both Palm Coast and Flagler County.

Thai by Thai: Applied for an Interior Alteration permit for the space in Island Walk formerly occupied by Salsa’s restaurant. The contractor stated construction value for this project is $231,279.

Racetrac: Construction is moving along nicely at the new Racetrac gas station and convenience store on the southwest corner of SR 100 and Seminole Woods Pkwy.

The Brass Tap: Applied for an Interior Alteration permit for Unit #201 in Island Walk. The contractor stated value is $150,000.

Sara’s at European Village: This lifestyle boutique and skincare business has been issued an Interior Alteration permit for Unit #B-115 in European Village. The contractor stated value of this improvement is $45,000.

Protea/Sabal Palms Senior Living: A Commercial Construction permit has been issued for construction of an Adult Living Facility at 65 Fernmill Ln. (The entrance will be from Palm Harbor Pkwy.) The stated value for the project is $11,455,000. A total of $155,719 was paid for permitting and impact fees.

7-Eleven: A Commercial Construction permit has been issued for a Convenience Store and gas pump Canopy for 2560 SR 100. This is an out-parcel of Beach Village at Palm Coast. The stated value is $275,000. A total of $61,192 was paid for permitting and impact fees. A separate Commercial Site Development permit was issued with a stated value of $200,000.

Lighthouse Harbor Marina: A county Land Development permit has been issued for earthwork and pond excavation at the former Lehigh Cement plant site.

Harborview Marina: This project is on the county Technical Review Committee agenda for a September 28 special meeting to consider a Planned Unit Development (PUD) amendment. The original PUD combined a salt water marina with a system that would lift boats from the salt water to a fresh water canal system interior to the project. The fresh water canal was a clever adaptation desguising retension ponds required for a storm water management system. The PUD amendment substitutes stacked dry storage and traditional retention ponds for the lift and canal system. This project is south of Palm Coast Plantation and adjacent to the planned Lighthouse Harbor Marina.

Petco: A Certificate of Occupancy has been issued for Unit #608 in Island Walk. The next step will be the installation of store fixtures.

Tuesday Morning: A Certificate of Occupancy has been issued for Unit #603 in Island Walk. The next step will be the installation of store fixtures.

Tractor Supply Co: Construction continues on this new store in The Shoppes at Palm Coast at the southeast corner of SR 100 and Belle Terre. An Aldi supermarket, gas station/convenience store are also planned. Additional outparcels will likely attract restaurants and banks.

    Is there any truth to the rumor of Chipotle going over by Panera on 100? I was told they bought the lot where Discount Tire began construction then left. Thanks!

    Town center

    Do you known if there is an plans for and new business in the town center? It’s a shame that all that area is being unused. I think a family reaturant and a gas station would really help to get more traffic flow there.

    Commercial development in Town Center (i.e. restaurants) will be driven by residential rooftops. ICI’s purchase of property for residential development will help. I doubt that gas stations will find their way into Town Center. Three gas station/convenience stores are already planned or underway along SR 100.

    The Fallacy of calling this Commercial Development

    As a Commercial Real Estate Broker, I find calling growth in retail franchises in Palm Coast as “commercial development”. Retail company growth is just a result of increased rooftops or Companies finally thinking that this area can support their goods or services. True commercial development would include the other major categories of commercial real estate, namely, office, industrial and multi-family. We need to have companies that produce things and hire for better paying jobs for this area to truly grow. Until that happens, this area will be looked at as. Retirement community with no real economic development!!

    The article was does not mention “commercial development” per say. It is about commercial construction and is only a snapshot of projects either making visible headway or moving along the permitting process. There are, of course, other projects that would satisfy your definition of commercial development in the mill that have been mentioned in previous updates. Among them are the new FP&L building at the corner of SR 100 and Town Center Blvd and the National Guard building near the Flagler County Executive Airport. Not to mention the $millions in the pipeline for upgrades and new construction at the airport itself.

    Also, don’t forget about Designs for Health. They were an Economic Development recruit that prospered and outgrew their facility. So they purchased nearly 42,000 SF at 6 Commerce Blvd for $1,995,000.

    What is the true story regarding Aldi’s?

    I have been waiting for Aldi’s and was originally told that they were planning to open before Christmas of 2016. Today I heard that they have pushed back their opening until 2017 and maybe never because of difficulties with Palm Coast. I haven’t bought a tractor since I moved here 14 years ago but have travelled to Daytona Beach and St. Augustine to shop at Aldi’s many times. If Palm Coast is at fault I am very upset or if this is some political issue I am mad.

    Palm Coasts’ Industrial Development


    We continue now at a relaxing pace through the middle of a boomtown. One sure sign of a solid future is the arrival of new businesses today. And signs of these progressive times are everywhere: Wal Mart, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Lil’ Champ stores, all coming soon; Shell Food Mart and Sun Bank, now open; proposed expansion at the library, post office and animal shelter; professional and medical services; a new shopping center, west of I-95, now under construction ; new companies at three Industrial Parks. With all this activity come jobs, a more diverse and balanced economy, more services close to home, a strong foundation for future growth, and perhaps nicest of all…the advantages of a boomtown minus the headaches. Namely, long lines of traffic; huge trucks on neighborhood streets; split-session schools. You won’t find these in palm Coast. As the community grown, gaining momentum with each passing year, the wisdom and foresight of long-range planning become apparent. Local residents and business leaders are committed to wise growth management and high community standards. The future hold promise instead of problems. Now ever boomtown can say that.

    The Palm Coaster, Spring 1987

    ( The above is a small part of ‘ Garfields ‘ Bicycle Tour of Palm Coast. Garfield was the SpokesCat and Mascot for ‘ The Palm Coast Project ‘.
    PAWS, Inc. was kind enough to put together disc/ narrative of ‘ Garfields’ Bicycle Tour of Palm Coast ‘. They forwarded this to the Levitt Palm Coast Collection at ‘ The Smithsonian ‘ with a CC to me ).

    Our little group, comprised of the Palm Coast’ Levitt & I.T.T. first Neighborhood Group, provides these compare and contrasts to give a ‘ ..sense of Place…’ for the newer Palm Coasters. Palm Coast is extremely Heritage and History rich.
    I recently discovered four documents which I’m Steward of – they are about Melissa Hollands ‘ Mayor -Elect Family Park. Prior documents unknown but now un-earthed missing links. This will help with the required documents needed for an Official State of Florida Heritage MARKER Application for her family park should she choose to pursue this as an eternal Legacy for ‘ The Holland Family ‘ and a ‘sense of being and place for us ‘.
    Thank You very much.
