The Cordish Companies and Caesars Entertainment have stated that ‘The Pomp’ Pompano Beach development will feature a Live! dining and entertainment district.

Located 35 miles north of Miami and utilising the Live! brand, the 223-acre project’s goal is to create a “world-class destination” by bringing together entertainment, dining, hotel, retail, residential, office and lifestyle amenities alongside Harrah’s Pompano Beach casino. 

“It’s incredibly exciting for The Cordish Companies to continue advancing this game-changing project with our partners at Caesars Entertainment,” noted Blake Cordish, Principal of The Cordish Companies. 

“The Pomp represents one of the most dynamic opportunities for placemaking in the United States. There is no comparable development in South Florida that combines casino gaming with best-in-class entertainment, retail, dining, hotel, residential, office and lifestyle amenities into one dynamic destination.

“With Live! as an anchor, we are creating a high-energy dining and entertainment hub that will attract millions of new visitors from across the region and beyond.”

Live! at The Pomp is built on the site of the former Pompano Park racetrack. The space will be broken down into “1.3 million square feet of retail and entertainment space, 4,000 luxury residential units, two hotels and 1.35 million square feet of Class A office space”.

Anthony Carano, President and COO of Caesars Entertainment, added: “We are completely reimagining what this area of South Florida looks like for residents and visitors to Pompano Beach with The Pomp and Live! through our partnership with The Cordish Companies. 

“Building off the success of our newly remodelled and rebranded Harrah’s Pompano Beach casino, we are committed to delivering a one-of-a-kind entertainment and lifestyle destination, unlike anything in South Florida, that will provide the best in gaming, world-class amenities and attract new visitors to the dynamic area.”

Live! at The Pomp will have more than 25,000 square feet of food and beverage venues, including a Sports & Social and PBR Cowboy Bar.

These venues will open onto a central plaza featuring “live music and entertainment, family-friendly events, cultural celebrations, festivals, new-to-market special events, social activities and experiences, additional dining options, and more”.

The development will also have a Topgolf location, a venue for “point-scoring golf games in an energetic and fun environment” which is expected to open in late 2023.

“The City of Pompano Beach is delighted to have Caesars and Cordish partner on this incredible project,” stated Pompano Beach Mayor Rex Hardin.

“Caesars is known for their energetic gaming destinations, and Cordish has a successful track record of developing and operating dynamic mixed-use properties that spur community revitalization. 

“The Pomp and Live! will not only attract millions of visitors to our city annually, it will also create thousands of jobs for Pompano Beach and South Florida residents, leaving a lasting positive impact on our city and region.”

Elsewhere in the state of Florida, Cordish was the original development partner of the Seminole Tribe of Florida for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa.
