Eight months since our last update, and progress at the site of the SOM-designed MiamiCentral mixed-use development has been moving along well. One of the two Parkline Towers has now topped off, leaving its sibling to ascend its last few floors, while down below, the station and office tower have already begun to transform the downtown skyline.
Part of the All Aboard Florida Brightline system, which has now begun to deliver high speed rail service between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and eventually Orlando, MiamiCentral forms an integral link for all of South Florida. The station also connects several different bus routes in addition to many different rail lines and commuter services.
The nearly complete Parkline Towers will consist of two high-rise residential buildings at 33 and 30 storeys apiece. Combined, the towers will soon be home to 816 units, with future residents to enjoy a large range of amenities including a two-acre deck, outdoor dining area, and pool.
The station itself entered into service back in May, its 50,000 square-foot CentralFare food hall, and 180,000 square-foot retail mall, now a bustling hive of activity. Once fully complete, MiamiCentral will be a major boon to the downtown core, bringing together a mix of users and daily travelers, in conjunction with the more than 1,200 new residents who will soon call the development home.
