New Luxury Apartments Coming to Abandoned Shopping Center 

Cocoa City Council approved in February a development agreement with the Framework Group to build high-end apartments at the location of the old Winn-Dixie Shopping center on SR 524 in Cocoa. This project is much needed for the Cocoa community in many ways. First, this center has been sitting empty for over 15 years. The new apartments will bring life to this area which is centrally located near SR 524, US 1 and SR 528. Second, this will be the first high-end apartment complex in our community offering studios up to 3 bedroom units.

The 280 unit multi-family complex will feature courtyards with pools, grilling areas, outdoor gathering spaces, a four story clubhouse, rooftop lounge, a dog park, walking trails and a rocket viewing area. The property will be constructed in two phases with the first being the apartment complex and the second phase consisting of commercial development. Construction is set to begin in May 2021.

“With a large influx of space industry employees to our area and the addition of the Amazon facility, these apartments will offer another variety of housing options in the Cocoa area that we haven’t had in the past,” said Mayor Michael Blake.
