Brightline service to West Palm Beach is expected to begin mid-year 2017
MiamiCentral, the development planning to connect downtown Miami to Orlando via a high-speed rail service, just received its first train beam.
The massive concrete beam is one of 247 — averaging 73 feet long a piece — that will be placed along MiamiCentral’s rail lines within the next two months.
Developer All Aboard Florida had the beams trucked from their production site in Tampa to Miami, where they will rest on top of 50-foot rail columns, each with its own set of “vibration isolators” to prevent any shaking while the trains are running.
Plans for the downtown Miami portion show All Aboard is building three mixed-use towers that will sit above the project’s elevated rail tracks.
The first, Two Miami Central, is a Class A office tower with 190,000 square feet of space. It’s already seen significant preleasing from tenants like Ernst & Young, a major accounting firm. The other two buildings (designed by NBWW) will have more than 800 rental apartments combined. At its base, the project will have 180,000 square feet of retail space, which already boasts a roster of local eateries. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
