Soppes at Coconut PointThe Shoppes at Coconut Point presented their plans to the Planning & Zoning Board on April 16.

The applicant was requesting an amendment to the Coconut Point MPD/DRI to allow conversion of 6,000-square feet of retail to allow for rental of the 6,000-square feet for medical office space. This existing 25,000-square foot building is located at 8350 Hospital Drive, on the corner of Pelican Colony Boulevard and US 41.

The applicant stated that the conversion from retail to medical will not generate more traffic and there is adequate parking for these uses. There will be no changes to the exterior of the building, landscaping or signage needed to accommodate this change. (Presentation)
