Vehicle Maintenance and Storage Facility
The Wave Streetcar’s Vehicle Maintenance and Storage Facility (VMSF) will be built on two acres of land at SW 18th Street and SW 1st Avenue. The VMSF will not only house the streetcars and the maintenance bays, but also the system’s Operation Center. The facility will be designed to accommodate five cars, and will be expanded as future system extensions are added.
The Operations Center will be constructed following the South Florida Building Code to withstand hurricanes. The site is also being raised 2 feet to protect it and the streetcars from flooding. The VMSF will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified.
