I'm not sure why they didn't. The only thing I can think of is that, at least at the time, there might have been a lack of developable land in Ft Lauderdale itself. It was built in the late 90s when a lot of commercial real estate was already in use. Things are pretty crowded down there. I actually used to spend every Christmas break within sight of the arena in Sunrise when I was at my grandparent's place in Lauderhill.
