Cocoa CRA ProjectsThe Cocoa CRA requested proposals for the purchase and redevelopment of a 0.87 acre property situated at 603 Brevard Avenue, site of the former Cocoa City Hall. The property is designated for redevelopment as it will serve as a catalyst for a new mixed use development in Cocoa Village, accompanied by a shared use public parking facility that will serve the demands for public parking, through a private public partnership with the Cocoa CRA, the Developer, and the City of Cocoa. The project will include ancillary commercial uses, serve as a focal point of connectivity bringing together the North and South areas of the Village, and provide additional public parking for Cocoa Village visitors.
