Best approach to transition from a FRDM-K64F board to a custom board?

I'm currently developing a prototype application on a FRDM-K64F board that I'll need to port to a custom board using the MK24FN1M0VLL12 processor. I'm using Kinetis Design Studio (Version 3.0.0) and KSDK (Version 1.2.0). My project uses MQX RTOS and PE for Kinetis. Our initial approach to migrate to custom hardware is to stack add-on modules (boards) on top of the FRDM-K64F board and get the components/drivers working for it. For example, the first add-on board is a power board with a user comport and an interface for an altimeter. My question is, when I create the base Kinetis Project using the Processor Expert which derivative makes more sense for a starting point, using the board or the processor (FRDM-K64F or MK64FN1M0xxx12)? Obviously, after we get all the components working and create the final custom board, I'll transition to the MK24FN1M0xxx12 derivative. Does it matter? Or does one make more sense than the other for a starting point?

Much thanks for any opinions,
