The Academical Village's central location will offer unparalleled transportation access. The geographic center of Broward County (population 1.76 million), Davie is convenient to three international airports (Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, and Miami), as well as major interstates and highways (I-595, I-95, I-75, and The Florida Turnpike). The development is set directly on University Drive, a major north/south traffic corridor for Broward County, the 16th most populous in the United States. With Palm Beach County to the north and Miami-Dade County to the south, the three make up the South Florida metropolitan area. Because its western 800 miles are environmentally sensitive wetlands, Broward County is a barrier market with very few large tracts of land available for development.
