ABOUT US


Hollywood is the 3rd largest city in Broward County and is strategically located on the South Florida coast between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Hollywood is adjacent to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and is the primary home to Port Everglades. In addition to its proximity to I-95 and the Florida Turnpike, Hollywood is home to two Commerce/ Industrial Parks and has a growing niche in Professional Services and Health Care. There is over $1.65 billion in real estate development planned or under construction throughout the city with key commercial corridors offering additional redevelopment opportunities. Downtown Hollywood is easily accessible to South Florida’s major cities and will offer new convenient connections through the planned Tri- Rail Coastal Link commuter rail service creating an ideal environment for mixed-use, transit-oriented projects that provide the urban lifestyle many are seeking.

Hollywood attracts visitors from around the world who come to stay along its historic oceanfront Broadwalk. This 2.5-mile pedestrian walkway is just steps from the Atlantic and is lined with shops, restaurants and accommodations to fit every taste and budget. The city boasts a high quality of life with more than 60 parks, including three municipal golf courses and a wide variety of recreational amenities including a nearly 10-acre urban park and the Arts Park at Young Circle in the heart of its Downtown, which hosts outdoor concerts, special events, and a burgeoning arts scene.
