INTRODUCTION Perspective. Station area development requires stations With each new rail iransit system constructed in the United States, station area development appears to becoming a more important aspect of rail transit investment. In order to apply in Florida what has emerged as a successful strategy i n other communities, it is essential to know what the potential for its application is in this state A logical place to begin is to review our assets. Although Florida is probably not perceived as a rail transit state, either by its residents or outsiders, rail transit (in its various dimensions) is a component of public transportat io n in southeast Florida, in Jacksonville, and soon will become a part of the transit mix in Tampa In late 1999, rail transit served 44 stations in the metropolitan M iami area another 14 in Broward and Palm Beach counties and 6 stations in Jacksonville. Two additional stations will open in JackSonville in March, 2000. Tampa has begun construction on a streetcar line t hat will have 1 2 stations when service is inaugurated in 2001. By late 2001, there will be nearly 80 rail transit stations in the state. Miami has plans for further expans ion of its Metrorail system. If all of these p lan s were implemented the rail system in Miami Dade County would double in size, and add over 30 new stations Plans are being developed for a rail system in the greater Tampa area of Hillsborough County. This system contains 30 stations. Orlando recently scrapped plans for a light rail system that would have 17 stations in its first phase. The possibility exists that Orlando will revisit light rail on a different corridor, or in an attenuated version. Jacksonville is studying rail transit in three corridors. Pinellas County (St. Petersburg and Clearwater) is studying a major guideway project in the lJ .S. 19 Corridor. A plan by the Tampa/Orlando 2012 Olympics Committee calls for an intercity rail link to connect those two cit ies and also serve intermediate points While it is beyond the scope of this study to investigate the total range of planned rail transit projects, it is essential to inventory existing co n ditions. T his is what this technical memorandum is all about. It establishes the "state of the station" for rail transit in F lorida today. Approach. Constructing an inventory of rail transit station area development in Florida has required several steps. The research team first identi fied those communities with rail transit. Rail transit was defined broadly to include widely recognized light rail, heavy rail and commuter rail techn ology. Since light rail has evolved out of traditional streetcar technology it seemed only appropriate to include planned, and now under construction in Tampa, streetcar development. Another technological variation that is grouped in with rail transit is the automated guideway technology This does not operate on traditional railroad tracks, although it has many of the characteristics of rail transit in that the wheels of the vehicle are guided by the supporting structure upon which they rest. Florida has two examples of this technology in transit service today: Miami and Jacksonville. Heavy rail transit, or rapid transit, is exemplified by Miami' s Metrorail system. Heavy rail operates on a grade separated right-of-way. In Florida, this is an elevated structure. Another traditional rail transit Enabling Station Area Development 1 Tech Memo Number 2

technology, that does not yet exist in Florida, is light rail. Light rail evolved in post World Warll Europe as cities adapted former streetcar systems to new environments by putting portions of lines on private right of way outside of city centers, mixed in with running in the streets downtown. Or sometimes reversing the situation with street running in the suburbs and in subway tunnels, or on e le vated structures, downtown. Orlando's now defunct plan included a key light rail component. Tampa is considering a regional rail system that would incorpora te three lines and use a diesel version of light rail transit. The last example of rail transittechnology to b e used in Florida is commuter rail. Commuter rail operates in a traditional railroad environment, usually sharing tracks with freig h t trains or intercity passenger trains. Tri Rail inaugurated F l orida's first commuter rail service in 1989 between West Palm Beach, Ft. La ude rdale, and Miami. In order to understand existing and future. roles of station area development, it was necessary to conduct a survey of each of the transit systems with rail service. Research carried o ut by the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) at the University of South Florida was useful in identifying characteristics of station area development. This research had surveyed numerous rail transit systems across the country as part of a project for the Federal Transit Administration (FT A) to identify factors that contribute to the success ofi.nvesuncnt i n rail transit. As part of this research some information was obtained on the systems in Miami and south Florida T o s u pplement this information an extensive set of field visits to rail and guideway transit systems in Florida was made. Documents were collected from each system that identified station locations and general characteristics. Maps and aerial photographs were examined before going into the field to look at each station. Several field visits were made to each station on systems operated by Metro Dade Transit Agency (Mctrorail and Metromover); Tri County Commuter Rail Authority (fri Rail); Jackson ville Transportation Authority (JTA); Orlando-Seminole-Orange County T ransit A u thority (Lynx); Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART); and to local government planning offices in several counties and cities where stations exist. Appropriate staff were int e rviewed at these agencies. In the field, n otes were taken on each station site. Photographs (35 rom slides, and dig i tal images) were taken of stations and the area around them. This ipformation was then brought together and ana l yzed to obtain the best possible understanding of what exists at each site; what is p l anned (where plans exist), and what opporllmities are available. Vacant land and older buildings were considered the most like l y potential development sites. What follows is an inventory of existing stations on Florida's rail and guideway transit systems. One new system under construction, the HART TampaYbor City streetca,r, is included. Although data was collected, and is available, for the proposed light rail system i n Orlando, and the diesel light rail system in Tampa, these arc not included. A September 1999 vote by county commissioners has derailed the planned Lynx light rail project. The proposed Tampa Early Action Rail Project for 28 miles o f light rail and 30 stations was not included in the December 1999 recommendations of the Enabling Station Area Development 2 Tech Memo Number 2

Hillsborough County Commilte\l of 99 established by the County Commission to prioritize transportation in vestments, an action that will make moving the project ahead more difficult. Presentation: A section on each of Florida's rail trans it systems follows this introduction. The systems are listed in alphabetical order by transit agency, from HART to Tri Rail. For agency systems (MDTA has two: Metrorail and Metromover) the stations are listed in sequential order from north to south. A brief introductory section and a system map is provided at the beginning of each system. A standardized format has been used to present the information The following items are included in the inventory of each of the stations : A schematic system route d iagram showing the location of each station in the system with the one featured highlighted. An aerial photograph of the station area (these vary in size and scale depending upon availability) A description of the station characteristics. Location on the street network, or an address. Political jurisdiction (city or county). Transportation providers (who provides public transportation). Transi t services (agency, routes, hours and frequency of service). Parking availability. Station area activities, a summary of the key activities that take place in the station area. Generalized land use a subjective characterization of the overall land use in the area within 1/4 mile of the station Station area property values (a breakout ofland and building values around each station).** Development opportunities, a general assessment of what appears to be available for development or redevelopment (not detailed as to number or size of parcels ) Vacant land that appears to be the most obvious development opportunity. Specia l notes that reflect a unique character of condition th at coul d impact development. The inventory should not be taken as a detailed real estate portfolio. It applies to geneml conditions and situations Photographs are included with each of the stations to provide a visual impression of conditions, key elements, or of the general character oftbe area. Vertical aerial photographs were used where available. 01\ly oblique aerial photographs were available for Tri Rail sta(ions Adequate aerial photos were not available for one JacksonviUe station area. This data was collected from a variety of primary and secondary sources tbat bad been extracted from the latest available property appraisal information The area of coverage around stations varies from about two or three blocks for Skyway in Jacksonville; l 000 feet for HART in TamP" and forTri Rail in the south Florida corridor; . Miami Metro rail coverage includes a 112 mile radius around each station; and, Miami Metromover extends from about 200 yards to one half mile. Enabling Station Area Development 3 Tech Memo Number 2

HILLSBOROUGH AREA REGIONAL TRANSIT (HART) TAMPA-YBOR CITY STREETCAR System Description. Hillsborough Area Regional Transit and the City of Tampa are building a 2.5 mile streetcar line connecting the Conven t ion Center and historic Ybor City. Construction began i n September, 1999. Completion of the $23 million projec t is anticipated to be in late 2001. Eight replica streetcars are being fabricated by Gomaco Inc. oflda Grove, Iowa, with delivery of the first car scheduled for March, 2000. These cars are designed to resemble the Birney cars that operated on Tampa's former streetcar system until its abandorunent in 1946. One of the original Birney cars is being restored through the volunteer efforts of the Tampa & Ybor City Street Railway Society. This car will be made available for excursion and special event service. Regular service on the line will be maintained by the flee t of replica cars. The Tarnpa-Ybor City Streetcar will be largely a single-track operat ion with passing sidings. Track will be laid in city streets, or on separate right-o f-way parallel to the street. Twelve stations will be builL The stations will have track-level platforms, shelters with seating, and a speciall2 foot long streetcar floor-level block for hand icapped access. Ramps will lead from the sidewalk t o the ADA (Americans with Disabil i ties Act) accessib le block. A folddown plate at the door of the streetcar will bridge the gap to the block. The single-track nature of the system requires a station platform on one side of the track o nly. The streetcars will have folding doors and steps at both ends, and on both sides. The cars will double ended, allowing for operation in either direction. Electric power for traction motors will be obtained from an overhead catenary system. Each car will be equipped with two trolley poles, and operators will have to switch poles a t the terminal ends of the line before making return trips Streetcar service will be provided 7 days a week, beginnin g in time for morning journey-to-work trips on weekdays. Service will start later on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Operations will continue until late evening on weekdays, and until midnight on weekends. Service frequency will range from 7 J/2 minutes during peak periods to 15 minutes at lower demand times. The streetcar service is expected to benefit travelers to and from a variety of major destinations that will be in place at the time of the opening of the system. These include, in addition to the Co nvention Center: new hotels on Garrison Channel and in Ybor City; the Ice Palace; Florida Aquarium; two new entertainment complexes; the Tampa Port Authority headquarters; Hillsborough Community College; and several new apartment and/or condominium developments. In late 1999 over $600 million in new development was under construction along the streetcar route. HART and the City of Tampa are pursning active development and redevelopment Stfategies along the streetcar corridor. HART has commissioned a study to identify development opportunities near the 12 stations. A one quarter mile wide corridor along the streetcar alignment has been targeted as the potential development area. Enabling Station Area Deve l opment 4 Tech Memo Number 2

JACKSONVILLE TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY (JTA) SKYWAY System Description: In 1989, th e Jacksonville Transportation Authority ope n ed a 0 6 mile automa ted guid e w a y d emon stra tion p ro ject. This automated guideway connected the former Jacksonville U n i o n T enninal railroad station, which had been redev eloped as the Convention Center, with a downtown station This initia l segment was operated with two small automated cars of the VAL technology deve loped in France. The automate d vehicles were equi ppe d with mbbe r tir es and ra n on a channeled guideway wit h e lectrical power an d control data supplied from a contact ra i l un de rneath the center o f the cars. Early plans were to tes t reactio n to the system, and then expan d it. Maintenance problems an d teclurical difficulties led to a decis ion in 1995 t o re trofi t the syste m with ano th er techno logy before pl anned extensions were made The initial three station, 0.6 mile system was shut down in 1997. Construction proceeded on two extensions to produce a longer y shaped, two route system, that would reach 2.5 miles in length, inco rporate 8 stations, an d extend across th e St. John's River to t he South Bank are a wh ic h has been emerging as a cluster of new hot els and office buildings The ex i sting short Une and the extensions are equ i ppe d with a center b ea m monorail system An extension further into the heart of downtown Jacksonville and the firs t two stations south of the ri,veropened in l ate 1 998. Th e fina l 0.5 mile segment on the South Bank will open in March 2000. The Skyway monorail system is s i milar to that operated at Disney World near Orlando. However single, articulated cars, rather than five car trains, are operated. The ears are guided b y a central beam which also provides vehic le support and contains electrica l power and control rails for supplying the cars. The entire system is a cars operate in one direc tion on each of th e parallel guideways A s wi tching system moves the track at the tenninal ends to allow the proper trac k to be used when the car reverses. The entire syste m is built on eleva ted structures large ly above city streets, although some priva te right-of-w a y is used. Each of the 9 vehicles is do uble-end ed air-conditioned, an d can carry as many as 56 persons. No operator is on board; o perati on is computer controlled from a central facility. The 8 stations all have ce nter pla tforms b etween the paralle l gu id ew ays. The pl a tforms are at car floor level. The elevated stations are accessible fro m ground l evel by stair s esca lators and elevators. Sky\vay operates six days a week, with service beginning a t 7:00 a.m. on weekdays and continuing into th e ear l y evening h ours. On w ee kends sen-ice starts and ends late r Saturdays N o Sun da y se rvice is offered Cars operate on minimum three minute headways during peak periods. Th e system functions as two ro utes: one running from the downto wn tenn inal near the community college north t o t he Convent ion Center, the other extends from the same downtown te rmina l to the South B a nk area. Ele ctron ic signs a t the stations inf orm passengers which route the car is taking. Fares are paid at entry turnstiles at the ground le vel at each station. The three end point stations arc intcrmodal facilities which contain parking sites, an d serve as transf er points for bus and/or park-and-ride p a trons Jacksonville doe s not have a policy for station are a d e v e lopment.

METRO DADE TRANSIT AGENCY (MDTA) METRO RAIL Systent Description. MDTA opened Metrorail, a 21 mile rapid transit system in the City ofiV!iami and other portions of Miami Dade County, in 1984. A heavy ra il system, Metrora i l is b uilt on an eleva ted structure above or along s i de of roadways using precast concTCte be ams mounted on heavy steel and concrete piers. The ini tial line was planned to serve key traffic congest i o n corridors south of downtown Miami along U.S. I (South Dixie Highway), and to aid in the economic deve l opment of t he area to the northwest of the cicy. Twcncy stations were in cluded in the first phase of the system. A new station was opened in 1990 to connect with Tri Rail commuter trains which terminate northwes t of the city. This transfer stat io n permitted rail transit travel in a 75 mile corridor extending from West Palm Beach through Palm Beach and Broward counties to downtown Miami. MDTA i s constructing a short extension of Metrorail from Okeechobee s ta tion west to a new statio n to be lo cated west of the Palmetto Expressway. Long range plans include construction of an east.wes t corridor linking the Florida Internat i onal University campus. Miami International Airport, downtown Miami and the cruise ship term i na l on Biscayne Bay Other planned extensions would continue north along N. W. 21"' Avenue to the Broward County l ine, and wesrward from the south l ine to the Kendall area. Trains, composed of married pairs of rapid transit cars consist of two four or six cars. Trains operate in an automatic train operation (ATO) mode, but w i th a driver on board. The fleet is composed o f 136 cars. Cars are air conditioned and have an operator's cab at the outer ends of each married pair. A mixture of transverse and longitudinal seating and standee space allows for 130 passengers per car. The entire system is double tracked. All stations arc elevated structures and have car floor level platforms. Passengers enter through fare gates at street level. Sta i rs, escalators and elevators provi d e access to trackside platforms. Some stations have two outer platforms; others a single center platfonn. Telephones, system information, and security are ava ilable at all stations Parking facilities exist at most stations. Metrorail trains operate seven days a week, from 5:30 a.m. until midnight. Peak hour headways are 5 minutes off peak hours are 10 minutes on weekdays and 20 minutes in evenings and on weekends. Trains are maintained at a service facility and repair shop located west o f Okeechobee station. T ransfer s to Metrobus are availab l e at rail stations. Connections also exi st to llfe tromover and Tri Rail commuter trains. Station area development has been a goal of MDT A from the ear l iest planning ofMetrorail. A series of sta tion concept plans was developed in 1982 for each of the 20 stations. The city of Miami passed a t ransit development ordinance. Since the mid l9 90s MDTA has undertaken a much more aggressive station area development progJ3111. The best examples o f successful development are at Civic Center Government Cen ter Dadcland North and Dade l and South. MDTA i s currently pw:suing new development p lans for several other stations Station area development is inco rporated as an integral part o f the planning for the east west corrido r, should funding be secured for this system expansion.

Vacant Land: The re is very limited vacant land in this area for new development. Ac::cess Issues: The major access issue is the Dixie Highway crossing for pedestrians This is particularly critical in view of the opening of Sunset P laza mall.

METRO DADE TRANSIT AGENCY (MDT A) METROMOVER System Description. Metromover is an automated guideway transit system built on elevated structures, that functions as a transit circulator in downtown Miami and adjacent areas to t he north and south. Electrically powered, rubber tired cars run on a steel surface laid on concrete beams above city streets and other wban p roperties. The first segment of what has grown to a 4.4 mile system opened in 1986 as a loop in the central business distr i ct of Miami. Two subsequent extensions opened in 1994. These extens i ons brought Metromover service south of the Miami River to the city s fast growing Brick ell fmancial district, and north along Biscayne Boulevard t o serve a growing area of office, retail, cultural and sports facility development. Unlike Mctrorail which has an on-board operator on each train, Metromover is fully automated. Tra i ns are controlled from a computerized operations center where commands are relayed to on-board systems which control speed, braking. door opening and closing, air conditioning, and public address announcements. Connections arc made with Mctrorail trains at t wo stations: Government Center and Brickell. Metromover trains are composed of one or two cars. Each of the 1 6 cars in the fleet is air-conditioned, has seating for 14 passengers, and standee room for crush loads of75. Power and control information is picked up from contact wires placed on a small beam in the middle of the track. Cars can operate in either direction, and have two sets of sliding doors on each s ide. Stations are aU equipped with car floor level platforms located in the center of the double guideway system. Each station has both visual and audio information about approaching tra ins. All stations are accessed from the ground floor through turnstiles for payment of fares. Stairs and eleva t ors provide access to the platfo rm leve l Metromover operates three separate routes All routes use the o r iginal downtown loop. A clockwi se route serves only those stations on the downtown l oop. Brickell Loop trains serve the area south of the Miami River, enter the downtown loop and traverse it on th e outer guidewy in a counter clockwise direction Omni Loop trains also serve the outer guideway in the counter clockwise path before heading north to stations a long Biscayne Boulevard. During peak hours each loop operates every five minutes. Off peak headways drop to I 0 minutes. Connections arc made with Meto:ordil at Government Center and Brickell stations and Vl'ith Metrobus at most stations. Station area development has been less of a conscious effort by MDTA on tlte Men:omover system than Metrorail. Development and redevelopment efforts have been largely the respons ib ility of the City of Miami and private d ev elopers since 1995 .tviDTA has taken a much more active role in coordinating efforts with other agencies and private investors. This has extended to prov i ding direct access from stations to adjacent building s and to assisting with the redev elopment of buildings where the agency has ownership resulting from required right -of-way acquisition. A great deal of developmen t potential exists on the two Metromover extensions. Public investment is bu i lding new cultural and sports facilities near stations on the Onmi Loop Enabling Station Area Development 92 Tecb Memo Number 2

TRI COUNTY COMMUTER RAIL AUTHORITY TRIRAIL System D esc rip tion: In the late 1 980s, faced wi t h a major rebuilding ofl-95, the Florida Department of Transporta tion in collaboration with Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties decided to create a commute r rail alternative in this 72 mile corridor for use during the seven year reconstruction period. A new agency, the Tri County Comm u ter Rail Authority, was establis hed to carry out this task. An existing mainline railroad segment was purchased from CSX, with the railroad retaining freight trackage rights, use by Amtrak, and dispatching functions. Tri Rail was the operat i onal name for new commuter train service to be operated over th is route. The first train s ran in 1989. Five existing rail road stations used by Amtrak also became stops on Tri Rail. Stops were added at nearly a dvith CSX fre ight trains and Amtrak interc ity passenger trains Tri Rail trains are composed of up to six hi-level commuter cars, and hauled by a d iese l locomotive. Ope r ating practice i s generally for the locomotiv e to pull southbound trains, and push northbound ones Passenger cars at the opposite end of t he train are equipped wit h a control cab for running in push mode All cars are of a bi-level design d e veloped in Canada and first used i n Toronto. Identical cars operate toda y in Los Angeles, San Diego, Vancouver, and by the end of 1999 in Seattle. Cars are air con d itioned with carpeting and comfortable, upholstered se ating Stations are track l evel platforms, loca ted on one side of what was originall y a single track railroad Tri Rail has moved ahead with a plan to double track the entire system to improve on-time performance and enable capac ity expansion. Double tracking requires a second station platform, and several stations have been expanded to mee t t his need. Tri Rail commuter trains operate seven days a week, from ear l y morning to late evening hours Twenty eight week day trains are currently operated. Eighteen trains run on Saturday; ten on Sunday. Tri Rail connects with Metrorail service at 79 .. Street in Miami to allow trave l ers from points to the north to access downtown Miami. Shuttle bus serv i ce i s provided at some Tri Rail stations, ei ther by the commuter rail ageney or with local transi t. Extension of the line has resulted in building of tw o new s tati ons One other h a s been added, and others have been r ebui l t in association with the double tracking projects. Station area d evelopment has on ly recently become a major concern ofTri Rail. The commuter rail authority has solicited plans for five stations and is proceeding with their first significant developme n t pro ject a t Cypress Creek. Several stations have ad jacent vacant land. Plans are to add two edditional stations in the Boca Raton area in the near future Both offer significant deve l opment opportunitie s. Enabling Station Area DevClopment 100 Tech Memo Number 2
