All Aboard Florida Unveils Design Plans for Fort Lauderdale Station
Earlier today, Broward and Fort Lauderdale officials, All Aboard Florida reps and architects spoke about the upcoming passenger rail service. The original All Aboard plan called for service from Miami to Orlando, but the trains will stop only in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach beginning in 2016.
“As we initiate this new service in South Florida,” says Mike Reininger, the president and CEO of All Aboard Florida. “Fort Lauderdale quite literally stands in the center of all of it.”
Fort Lauderdale is the second station for which the company has released design plans — they released Miami’s in May. The renderings unveiled today show a modern-looking, $30 million station. Besides having having a glass structure and a waiting area located over the tracks, Reininger promised expediency and availability to multiple coveted Lauderdale locations.
“Our Fort Lauderdale station will serve as a gateway to the city and will be an iconic destination with ready access to places to shop, dine, live and to connect,” he said. “We chose this site — here between NW 2nd street and Broward Blvd. — because it provides convenient connections to the sun trolley, to the Broward County transit system, to the coming Wave street car, a planned tri-rail station, as well as walkable access to the government center, to major businesses and offices, Las Olas Blvd. and Las Olas Riverfront and other points of interest including museums, historic districts and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.”
