A total of 372 trees had to be removed from the convention center site as part of the construction of the new Port Everglades Terminal 4 Parking Garage. As part of the Convention Center’s LEED certification and on-going commitment to the environment, we were able to find new homes for a total of 208 trees in surrounding locations within Broward County:
· Bonnet House, Ft. Lauderdale: 10
· Plantation Heritage Park: 84
· T.Y. Park, Hollywood: 37
· Riverland Park, Ft. Lauderdale: 20
· Hagen Park, Wilton Manors: 19
· United Way, New Veterans Home, Ft. Lauderdale: 38
“This is such a great achievement for the Convention Center and Port Everglades. It is our duty and responsibility to make sure that with the progress of construction, we do what we can to preserve our trees and enhance our community’s environment.” Said Julia Johnson, Sustainability Manager
Due to construction, attendees can expect heavy delays entering and exiting the garage as well as Eisenhower Blvd.
