John Knox Village to Host Grand Opening of Pavilion and Groundbreaking of Westlake Neighborhood

The new additions will cost over $150 million

John Knox Village of Florida (JKV) in Pompano Beach will celebrate the opening of its $35 million Pavilion and the groundbreaking of the over $120 million Westlake Neighborhood featuring two luxury apartment towers at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 9.

The Pavilion will feature a 380-seat Cultural Arts Center, two restaurants and a bar. It will open to the public for selected events starting in the fall of this year. The JKV Life Enrichment team, led by former Cultural Venues Programming Manager for Pompano Beach, Jody Leshinsky, is securing world-class entertainers for cultural arts performances. The ceremony will also celebrate the groundbreaking of Westlake, a two-tower, $120 million expansion.

“Over the past five years, a master site plan has been developed to guide the capital improvements of our 70-acre campus and the opening of our Pavilion and, in 2024, Westlake are the next steps to accomplishing our ambitious goals,” Gerry Stryker says, CEO and president of JKV.

The Westlake development will add 146 state-of-the-art designer-finished lakefront apartments ranging from 1,277 to 2,346 square feet. The two towers are named The Vue and The Terrace. A significant component of the project is to enlarge and enhance JKV’s water views. The first-floor common area lobby of the towers will feature new amenities, including a projection theater, technology hub, business center, art studio, spiritual space, club room, library and two dining venues.

The project team includes John Knox Village residents and staff, its board of directors, Gallo Herbert Architects, Moss Construction, Keith & Associates Engineers, EDSA Landscape Architects, Love & Co. Marketing, Weitz Construction, BSSW Architects, Perkins Eastman Architects and Clifton Larson Allen Financial.

“John Knox Village is embarking on this tremendous project to provide and enrich the lifestyles of its current and future residents,” Stryker says. “A Master Vision and Site Plan of this magnitude and complexity has taken a team of innovative professionals, guided by our residents, management team and Board of Directors to reach this point in our journey.”
