> All Aboard Florida has revealed plans for a 3-million square foot mixed-use station downtown, including an 80-story tower.
The transportation hub will include mixed-use development with residential, office, commercial, and a retail concourse, while serving as a connector between All Aboard Florida’s passengers and Miami’s existing public transport systems.
The Overtown site will also be a mixed-use development with retail, commercial and parking to support and enhance the transportation hub.
Three towers ranging in height from 15 to 28 stories will sit atop the station, along with the 80-story tower south of the station. The station itself will be elevated 50-feet, allowing for streets to pass through underneath.
Construction on the rail line is expected to begin within the next few months.
John Guitar, Senior Vice President, Business Development with All Aboard Florida, will be discussing plans at the Commercial Industrial Association of South Florida‘s (CIASF) next monthly meeting, scheduled for Friday, June 13.
Guitar is responsible for the development and leasing activities for the stations and transit oriented development in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
