All Aboard Florida preparing major development around Fort Lauderdale station

July 20, 2015

All Aboard Florida hasn’t moved as quickly to develop the land around its Fort Lauderdale station as it has in Miami and West Palm Beach, but plans are being crafted to complement the key transit hub with several million square feet of development.

Construction crews are currently working to complete the $2.5 billion passenger rail line between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. The South Florida leg is slated to open in early 2017, so both track work and station work is underway.

A big part of the strategy of All Aboard Florida, part of Florida East Coast Industries, is to capitalize on the pedestrian traffic created by the stations to build dense mixed-use districts.
