The Dania Beach Design and Marine Center (DBDMC), a 306,000 Square Foot office/showroom/warehouse complex and the Stirling Design Center (SDC), a 21000 Square Foot Retail Center were built in the late 70's and redeveloped into state of the art facilities by the current ownership and management team in 2005-2008 and 2011 respectively. The primary purpose for redevelopment of the properties (other then age) was to brand and create theme properties. Due to the Design Center of the America's which is 1/2 mile from the property, the surrounding nearby area became a magnet for companies and individuals involved in trades which are selling, distributing, fabricating, and manufacturing home goods. The properties are also zoned to allow marine uses as the marine industry is well known in Dania. Therefore, the owners and managers decided to include marine in their name and theme to attract Marine related uses. The properties are now made up of state of the art units with underground telecom and hurricane impact doors and windows ranging in size from 725 SF to 15,000 SF with flexibility to combine one or more units. The City of Dania was and has been very supportive of the redevelopment efforts set forth by the owners and managers of DBDMC and SDC and after many years of discussion, the City Planner, Director of Community Development and the Community Redevelopment Director offered their support to help create the Dania Beach Design District east of 95 on Stirling Rd. anchored by DBDMC and SDC. The Dania Beach Design District overlay has been made public and has been officially approved by the City Commissioners on March 23, 2011. The Tenant profile has gradually evolved from a warehouse Tenant base to an upscale design center with beautiful showrooms and will continue to attract high end users as the Design District further enhances the area and the property image.
