Broward County has been looking far and wide for a building to redevelop its Forensic Science Center.
It appears they’ve found one at 2000 W. Commercial Blvd. It acquired the Fort Lauderdale health care facility for $18.5 million to redevelop it for county uses. County officials previously had a different site in mind for this facility in Golden Heights, but they reconsidered after pushback from residents.
Broward County intends to redevelop this site into a 177,000-square-foot Forensic Science Center. It budgeted $262 million for this project.
Allied Health Education sold the 133,295-square-foot medical office facility to the county. The price equated to $139 per square foot.
The property last traded for $15.7 million in 2021. It was developed on the 8.7-acre site in 1971.
