AAF Goes Station Shopping

Executing on their commitment to build a passenger train line through South Florida and up to Orlando, the Florida East Coast Railway 'All Aboard Florida' project has purchased land for a station in West Palm Beach, and is in negotiations for a Fort Lauderdale plot. The Palm Beach site is their preferred site the old Sewell Hardware Warehouse on Evernia Street, west of Quadrille Boulevard. We don't know which of the two alternative Fort Lauderdale locations they're negotiating for, but the owners of Las Olas Riverfront have admitted to talks with them, which they might not have done if those talks were still going on. No big loss. The FEC prefers the other option anyways, a few blocks to the north and on the other side of Broward Boulevard. [Palm Beach Post; SFBJ]
