Moore's Creek/Avenue D Redevelopment
The Lincoln Park neighborhood is one of the oldest communities in Fort Pierce. As the city expanded beyond the original Fort established in 1800s, a settlement called Edgartown emerged and overtime, the community developed a bustling commercial district. During its heyday in the 1950s and the 1960s, Avenue D was the main corridor in the Village of Lincoln Park – it was St. Lucie County’s bustling center for African American-owned shops, restaurants, businesses, and a theater.
Today,the area is experiencing revitalization, celebrating it rich cultural history, and making progress to again become the center of pride for the community. The neighborhood is adjacent to historic Fort Pierce’s downtown and waterfront. The project site is located approx. a third of a mile from Downtown Fort Pierce and the waterfront and is adjacent to Moore’s Creek. Downtown Fort Pierce is experiencing significant growth with the construction of King’s Landing, a development poised to connect downtown Fort Pierce to Edgartown. With a focus on structures and design that enhance and complement the existing pedestrian‐friendly atmosphere of Fort Pierce, King’s Landing features easily accessible walk‐up restaurant and retail space, as well as unique residences and a low profile, boutique‐style hotel.
A portion of the project site is also located within a Qualified Opportunity Zones by the U.S. Department of Treasury.
