Pompano Beach McNab House and Botanical Gardens
August 21, 2023
The City of Pompano Beach selected BA to provide Design Services for the McNab House and Botanical Gardens. As the original concept planners for this project, BA is intimately familiar with its history, vision, and incredible potential. The opportunity to transform the historic McNab House into a vibrant commercial venue and to create a world class botanical garden that will serve as a sanctuary for the community is a task we approach with great enthusiasm and dedication.
The Botanical Gardens, along with the preservation and adaptive reuse of the historic McNab House into a restaurant, will create a one-of-a-kind venue, not only for the City of Pompano Beach, but in all South Florida. The vision for the entire park is to convert the historic McNab House into a unique and outstanding commercial venue, together with a commercial kitchen annex building to serve the historic home-turned-restaurant clientele; create a state-of-the-art botanical garden with Floridian, tropical landscaping, plants, and water features throughout the site; include an open-air event lawn; and construct a separate event facility/building for indoor and/or covered weddings and private events. The redeveloped McNab House and Botanical Gardens will accommodate not only casual and fine dining, but also art exhibits, educational seminars, small music concerts, and much more. A children’s garden and a potential book or gift shop may also be part of the project. While the concept calls for private operators for the restaurant, café, and potential wine bar in the basement, the Botanical Garden itself will remain open to the public during business hours and operated by a professional park operator in cooperation with the Master Operator.
