Our South Florida traffic attorneys have learned that the site of the old Coca-Cola bottling plant on South Andrews Avenue may be turned into a 1,000-space parking garage for the new courthouse. A Broward County committee unanimously recommended the site, which will then go before the Broward County Commission for approval.
A Fort Lauderdale-based project developer competed against two other bids and won the committee’s recommendation. It has vowed to stay within the county’s $29.5 million budget and create a covered walkway leading to the courthouse. The developer also estimates that the garage could be completed in 18 months after permits are approved.
The parking garage contract bidding war had pitted several of Fort Lauder’s bigwigs against each other.
