One of Florida's newest cities, Palm Coast is a Florida paradise, situated on 70 miles of saltwater and freshwater canals and the Intracoastal Waterway, and just minutes from pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches. Palm Coast was named by the Census Bureau as the fastest growing city in the country in percentage terms.
Today, Palm Coast has over 77,000 residents. Vibrant lifestyle and the natural environment go hand-in-hand, with 13 beautiful parks, 125+ miles of connecting trails and paths for walking/bicycling, abundant fishing and boating, a year-round Running Series, and world-class tennis and golf. The community offers excellent schools, a business assistance center that promotes local businesses, and extensive City services that make Palm Coast a great place to live, work and play.
Lined with historic oaks, towering pines and indigenous vegetation, Palm Coast's parks and trails showcase the splendid elegance of the native Florida landscape. Bird-watching is popular at St. Joe Walkway and Linear Park, which are designated as Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trails, and residents and visitors alike can spot dolphins and seabirds as they stroll along the Intracoastal at Waterfront Park.
Palm Coast consists of roads beginning with a common letter of the alphabet. We often refer to an area based on that letter, i.e. the “P” section or the “R” section. The “F” section is built around a network of salt water canals with access to the Intracoastal Waterway. Palm Coast Parkway, the commercial corridor, is an east/west divided highway which allows more development frontage than a non-divided road. Residential roads in each section access feeder roads, which, in turn, access major traffic highways. This design limits the traffic in residential neighborhoods. In 2002, the Florida Hospital-Flagler opened near the SR-100 and I-95 interchange. When Palm Coast’s population reached 50,000, retailers became interested. Palm Coast is served by three major grocery chains, a Super Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe's, Target, Kohl's, and Belk's. An ambitious 20 year project named Town Center broke ground in 2005. Town Center consists of over 1500 acres of mix use development, including residential, business parks, service, retail, restaurants, and entertainment. A SuperTarget Store opened in 2009. Other development includes European Village, Cobblestone Village at Palm Coast, City Walk, and Palm Coast Park. Cobblestone Village is anchored by a Belks department store and Lowe's, both of which opened in 2007.
A Town Center, providing office, retail, institutional and commercial space, opened in August 2008 and is now nearing its 425,000 sf buildout, Town Center at Palm Coast is a 1,557 acre mixed-use development which provides a downtown for Palm Coast. Town Center is located near the Florida Hospital Flagler, Flagler County Airport and Flagler/Palm Coast High School. Town Center development sites have already been purchased by residential, business office, medical office and retail commercial developers, including a joint venture between Weingarten Realty Investors and Developers Realty Corporation that developed a Super Target store anchored power center.
