Back in 2017, a company tied to Coral Gables-based S&K Worldwide Realty loaned $48.8 million, property records show. 

Anchored by a Publix supermarket, the retail development will include a 22,747 square-foot Crunch Fitness gym and a 25,000 square-foot Burlington department store. The 117,583-square-foot retail project, located at 16000 Pines Boulevard, sits in the heart of the suburb’s shopping district. A Whole Foods and Costco are less than a mile away. 

“Terra’s continued investment in Pembroke Pines reflects the City’s growing residential population,” said Terra CEO David Martin in prepared remarks. 

Across Pembroke Pines, Terra is developing another retail project, Pines City Center, which is also in its second phase of construction.  

Coconut Grove-based Terra is one of the most prolific developers in South Florida. According to the company, its portfolio holds 10 million square feet of residential, commercial and mixed-use developments valued at more than $8 billion.

In March, the company scored a massive $340 million loan to build Five Park, a residential tower in Miami Beach. Just last week, the company purchased a parcel on Bay Harbor Islands for $31.5 million, as CO first reported
