There is an article discussing an exciting new development taking place in central Florida. “Fortress Investment Group’s Brightline Receives $1.75 Billion in Funding” is a piece located on positivethefacts.com discussing the great new opportunity for the region. People all over the region are excited about plans to expand a Brightline commuter route from the Miami and West Palm Beach area to Orlando. The $1.75 billion in funding will help get this project started off on the right foot. Currently, work on this expansion has already begun and received positive results from travelers.
One of the biggest reasons that this new train route will be so good for the region is that it is poised to resolve some congestion in these metro areas. With the project slated to be completed by 2021, there are many people who are ready to jump on board and help make it a reality. In fact, this construction project offers exciting new opportunities for workers throughout the region. Creating more than 6000 jobs, Brightline will become a major employer in central Florida. Additionally, more than $400 million worth of construction-related costs will flood into local economies. These factors could be major contributors to a boost in the Florida economy and catalyze the development of more businesses.
The train system is of exceptional quality. Travelers will enjoy spacious leather seating and power outlets that allow them to remain charged. There are even USB ports that enable individuals to partake in the complimentary Internet provided to them. The Miami Central station is also well-known for its beautiful restaurants, businesses, and accommodations. Such wonderful amenities will spread to the Orlando community and create a dedicated customer base in their area. It is one of the reasons why many people have shown extreme interest in this new branch of growth for the Brightline.
Brightline may be earning a lot of attention for this growth, but they are an affiliate of a much larger company called Fortress Investment Group. Fortress Investment Group is well known in New York but in Florida, they may not have the same reputation. They are experts in their field of finance and investing. Fortress Investment Group opens their doors in 1998 after putting together a dedicated staff of veteran investors. The work that they have done throughout the 20 years that they have conducted business is astounding. They have earned a substantial amount of money but they have earned their trusting clients more. With Brightline the company seems to be expanding their portfolio to include a foray into infrastructure.
