Two plans are on the table for the redevelopment of the beach area around Las Olas Boulevard and A1A.

Fort Lauderdale commissioners reviewed the two proposals Monday from design firm EDSA, an $82 million plan with two parking garages straddling Las Olas Boulevard and a cheaper one at $72 million with one tall parking garage on the north side of the roadway, overlooking the Intracoastal, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

The lower-cost option was favored by commissioners and members of the Beach Redevelopment Advisory Board. Plans also call for an oceanfront plaza with green space, valet parking and a playground with water features. The report said the meeting ran late and further discussion was postponed until Nov. 10.

“Fort Lauderdale needs to distinguish itself from other cities up and down the coast. And I think we can do that by being greener and more family friendly,” Commissioner Dean Trantalis, who represents the beach area, told the newspaper. [Sun-Sentinel]  – Jennifer White Karp
