Location is Everything

The City of Plantation is located in the geographic center of Broward County and southeast Florida. Plantation residents and businesses have direct access to the interstate highway system, I-595, as well as Florida’s Turnpike, both providing ready access to Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties.  Plantation is only 15 minutes from Downtown Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, I-95, and Port Everglades.   

If you are considering relocating your business to southeast Florida, please consider Plantation first.  Plantation abuts interstate I-595, the only east/west expressway in Broward County, currently undergoing billion-dollar reconstruction to improve access to Plantation.  At the same time, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is adding a second major runway, doubling the airport’s capacity to accommodate domestic and international travel.

Plantation is a planned community combining quality-shopping districts, over three million  sq. ft. of quality office space, and a variety of  places to live, from large lot single-family homes on tree lined streets to sophisticated apartments located within  new mixed-use developments in the Plantation Midtown District.  

Plantation provides an extensive network of golf courses, parks, recreation centers, greenways and open spaces as well recreation programs designed for every age and interest.  Plantation is located within 10 minutes of the South Florida Educational Complex, including Nova Southeastern University, Florida Atlantic University, and Broward College.

In terms of a business location and accessibility, Plantation is the center of it all, but even more important, Plantation is a great place to live, work, and play.   Please contact the Economic Development Division at 954-797-2225 or pdokuchitz@plantation.org if you are considering locating your business to Plantation or have any questions about our town.    

Thank you for considering Plantation first.

Sincerely,
