Central Florida Commuter Rail

What's There Now - A Look At Planned Station Locations

Poinciana Station

Poinciana, the last station on the southern end of the commuter rail line is probably also the station with the least development surrounding it.  It will be located east of Poinciana Blvd. on the north side of the CSX tracks which are a short distance north of Hwy 17-92.  The site once was improved since is has old sections of asphalt paving on it.  This station is part of Phase II which is scheduled to open in 2013.

South of the site across the tracks a new Home Depot store has been built within the last year or so.  Across Poinciana Blvd. there is a Pepsico plant.  And at the corner of Poinciana and 17-92 is a gas and convenience store.  South of 17-92 is a well populated industrial park with trucks going in and out on a regular basis.

North of the station, there is very sparse development for a couple of miles and then there are several large housing developments on the east side of Poinciana.

East on 17-92 development is intermittent, but to the west there is only Intercession City, a housing development, and not much else.

All the ingredients for future transit oriented development are there:  Industry and jobs, housing, and lots of vacant land.  It's just that development hasn't reached this area in a substantial way.  Time will tell if Commuter Rail will have a significant impact on development here.
