Both Holness and Swindell discussed how the real estate and construction industries are impacting Broward County.

 Swindell discussed the construction and growth at Port Everglades, the 4,000 residential units to be built in downtown Fort Lauderdale and American Express’ plans for a new $200 million, 400,000-square-foot space in the City of Sunrise.

From Broward County’s perspective Holness discussed plans for the convention center headquarters hotel, the new Broward County Courthouse in downtown Fort Lauderdale and also touched upon the construction at Port Everglades.

Founded in 2004 by Commissioner Holness, the March 7 meeting was the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce’s 123 monthly breakfast meeting.

“The Lauderhill Chamber is near and dear to me, for many reasons, anytime I have an opportunity to assist them, I will,” Holness said.  “One of the many reasons I started the chamber was to establish a source for small businesses to learn how to grow their businesses and achieve economic growth and development.”
