Boca Raton’s City Council has a meeting scheduled for tonight where they will make a final decision on a deal with Virgin Trains, formerly known as Brightline.
Construction will begin by the end of 2021 at the latest, with completion by the end of 2023. Virgin will pay for construction costs of the station, but not of a parking garage.
The design was prepared by Boca’s RLC Architects, according to Boca Magazine.
A 458-space parking garage would have a $14 million construction cost, of which $1.9 million would be contributed by Virgin. The city would pay for the rest.
Virgin will cover the cost of construction for the station. It would pay $1 per month rent for the city-owned land, in a lease deal that could run until 2108 if extensions are exercised.
