neighborhoods,” said Tere Blanca, president and CEO of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “With an easily-accessible location just off I-595 and ample tenant amenities, Royal Palm is a natural fit for Fortune 500 companies, multinational corporations and strong entrepreneurial firms.”

A complete renovation of Royal Palm Office Park is currently in progress, with upgrades being made to the complex’s lobbies, as well as select restrooms and corridors. New amenities in development include the addition of a luxurious executive conference center/lounge as a complement to its existing classroom-style conference center, and a new state-of-the-art fitness center. The lushly landscaped lakefront property also offers panoramic views and an ample 4/1000 parking ratio in two structured parking garages and adjacent surface parking areas.

The upgrades are coming online as Plantation emerges as an urban submarket home to new multifamily and retail development and desirable quality of life components.
“We’re seeing a surge of demand for Class A space in Broward County, and properties like Royal Palm are benefitting,” said Danet Linares, vice chairman of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “Tenants see value in being located between Miami and Palm Beach, minutes from Fort Lauderdale International Airport.”
