The phenomenal development of western Broward County during the 1970s usurped commercial centers in the county's eastern environs. As a result, POMPANO FASHION SQUARE was in decline by the early 1980s. An interior renovation was done between March and November 1985, with the shopping hub renamed POMPANO SQUARE.
