Broward County buys Ft. Lauderdale medical center

Broward Co. Acquires Healthcare Facility

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 a 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.

The Jacksonville Business Journal reported in 2023 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 at 2000 W. Commercial Blvd. 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.
