Atlantic Crossing’s first phase is well along, transforming the stretch of Atlantic Ave. between Federal Hwy. and NE 7th Ave. with the well-received Brez luxury apartments, new-to-the market restaurants, initial shops, corporate offices and the pedestrian promenade. Completion of this phase is projected in January, 2024, with work now underway on the final component – the second Brez apartment building.

Phase 2 demolition is set to begin shortly, clearing Atlantic Crossing’s eastern block of the Atlantic Plaza and Merrill Lynch buildings to make way for the final mixed-use retail/office building and park-side condominiums. This phase’s three buildings and two garages are projected for completion in 2027.

As Phase 2 demolition begins, access to the City’s Veterans Park from Atlantic Plaza will be permanently closed. Park access from the existing NE 1st St. entrance will remain open.
