Over the last few decades, EDSA has partnered with the City of Fort Lauderdale on several significant public projects to help redefine the visitor experience. These design initiatives have generated over $1 billion in private sector investment, stimulated 40 redevelopment projects, and improved beach access for residents and visitors. Revitalized in the 1990s, by EDSA, the city’s coastal corridor features a beach-front promenade with fiber optic wave wall and pedestrian portals.

Currently underway, the Las Olas Boulevard Corridor Improvements project consolidates parking for increased public green space, creates an arrival court, and reinforces walkable connections. The functional design includes streetscape enhancements, multi-modal transportation alternatives, and the incorporation of natural and man-made patterns to form a connection between ecological systems and the urban grid.

EDSA led public consensus building workshops, prepared a master plan, and provided detailed design and construction related services for the original revitalization. Currently, EDSA is providing project management and design services for the realignment of Las Olas Boulevard as well as redevelopment of Oceanside Park, the Intra-coastal Promenade, and Channel Square Canal.
