All Aboard Florida announced its selection of Fort Lauderdale-based Moss & Associates as the general contractor for the Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations. Construction activities are expected to commence at the end of the first quarter.
“This announcement is another step forward as All Aboard Florida moves into the construction and implementation phase,” said P. Michael Reininger, President of All Aboard Florida. “Moss & Associates has a world-class reputation and is the right firm to help us deliver our Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach stations.”
“As a South Florida-based company, with offices in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach, among others, we are very excited to be a part of the All Aboard Florida team and proud to be building two stations in the region,” said Bob Moss, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Moss & Associates. “The Moss team has great expertise in building public venues and we look forward to bringing that experience to this innovative transportation project. Upon completion, All Aboard Florida will provide a unique solution to South Florida’s transportation challenges as the region continues to grow.”
As part of the urban infrastructure in both counties, the stations are expected to generate significant economic impact to the State. According to a recent economic impact study, All Aboard Florida is expected to create $6.4 billion in direct economic impact to Florida’s economy over the next eight years; $653 million in federal, state, and local government tax revenue through 2021; more than 10,000 jobs on average per year through rail line construction; and more than 5,000 jobs on average per year after rail line construction is completed through 2021. More specifically, in Broward and Palm Beach County, the project will create more than 1,400 rail-line construction jobs, generating $161.8 million in labor income.
The 60,000 square foot Fort Lauderdale station and platform will include a modern, multi-story lobby spanning an elevated passenger lounge area for travelers, and parking facilities. It will also stimulate a currently underutilized area, driving new visitors into downtown and the surrounding cultural, economic and shopping destinations. The station’s location provides convenient connections to the Sun Trolley, Broward County Transit system, future Wave Streetcar and planned Tri-Rail station.
The West Palm Beach station, equal in size to its counterpart in Fort Lauderdale, will be located on Quadrille Boulevard, between Datura and Evernia Streets. The station’s proximity to the thriving CityPlace mixed-use development, shops and restaurants of Clematis Street, and several art institutions will make it a staple to the growing and vibrant landscape of downtown West Palm Beach.
Site work on the Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach station sites will begin in the next few weeks with vertical construction starting at the end of the first quarter.
