Coconut Creek Real Estate

 

 

Coconut Creek has an area of 12 square miles (31 km2), with approximately 50,000 residents and 1,400 businesses. Housing is primarily single-family homes, condominiums, and townhouses within professionally landscaped communities.

The city took its name from the coconut trees that were planted in the area by early developers. Robert E. Bateman, one of the developers, named Coconut Creek after combining the names of Miami-Dade County‘s village of Indian Creek and the Miami neighborhood of Coconut Grove.

According to the 2010 United States Census, the city had a population of 52,909. Coconut Creek is part of the Miami–Fort Lauderdale–Pompano Beach Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was home to 5,564,635 people at the 2010 census.

The city is a well-planned community with a unique environmental consciousness touting an abundance of trees, waterways, attractive landscaped roads, beautiful parks, and butterfly gardens throughout the neighborhoods. This is due to the city’s progressive planning approach to creating a unique life-style for residents and businesses. Coconut Creek is the first in the state of Florida and eleventh in the country to be certified as a “Community Wildlife Habitat”.

In 2010, Money Magazine named the City of Coconut Creek, the 48th best small town to live in the United States.
