FT. LAUDERDALE AIRPORT’S $2.3 BILLION DOLLAR MAKEOVER
This is very exciting news to me. Growing up in New York City, I was used to the bland, dirty airports at LaGuardia and JFK that didn’t offer much in the way of restaurants or anything else. So when I moved here I thought that both the Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale airports were much better since they had some decent restaurant choices. Now we are going to be leading the way for airports with this new $2.3 billion dollar makeover which will take 3 years. Passengers will have great options to eat, shop and relax when it is completed. The 80 new restaurants even feature some of our local successful eateries such as Rocco’s Tacos, Canyon Tapas & Bar and Casavana Restaurant. This airport improvement comes at an exciting time, with all sorts of growth taking place in South Florida. I just posted yesterday about plans for two 93 story tower buildings that will be built in Downtown Miami. They will be the tallest buildings South of Manhattan and reflect the change that is taking place in South Florida now. We are finally becoming a major destination for business as well as tourism, more like a New York, Chicago, etc. We have plenty of room for improvement but are well on our way and now we will have an airport that we can all be proud of. It seems like everything is getting bought, cleaned up, redeveloped and sold these days so why should the airport be any different? Will this put some pressure on Palm Beach Int’l Airport to follow suit to be competitive? Regardless, it is all good and I think you will be impressed with the new terminal plan. Check it out. As always thanks for reading and have a great day.
A flier's delight: Lauderdale airport to offer 80 new eateries, shops
