The City of Hollywood, Florida, received an unsolicited proposal submitted under the provisions of Section 255.065, Florida Statutes, Public-Private Partnerships, for “University Station” to finance, develop, construct and manage an urban, mixed-use project on approximately 2.5 acres of City-owned real estate in Downtown Hollywood. The City-owned site is located along a major north/south corridor known as the Dixie Highway/Florida East Coast Railway Corridor, between Fillmore, Taylor, and Polk Streets, and adjacent to N. 21st Avenue (“Site”).

No final decision has been made relative to selecting any proposal for this site.
