A notice of commencement has been filed by Florida East Coast Industries (FECI), the parent company of Brightline, indicating construction is set to begin at the site where two 83-story mixed-use towers are being planned. The scope of work involves the restructuring of the streetscape, re-aligning Northwest 1st Avenue directly south to Northwest 1st Street, demolishing the existing small park that breaks up the grid, and some sewer and plumbing work. Upon completing the realignment of the street, a new rectangular interior lot will be formed at 195 Northwest 2nd Street to make way for the 848-foot-tall south tower.
On August 10, 2021, ride-hailing technology company Uber announced the signing of a new lease for office spaces at 3 MiamiCentral, a 130,157-square-foot transit-oriented 12-story mixed-use building located in the Overtown district of Downtown Miami. The company will occupy 13,000 square feet of the 95,000 square feet that the Class A office component has to offer. Officially addressed as 161 Northwest 6th Street, the structure is designed by AECOM with Design2form as an architectural consultant and currently owned by EQ Office, a real estate investment company managed by New York City-based Blackstone.
A new batch of detailed-massing and aerial renderings have been revealed for two new towers at the MiamiCentral complex, a 3-million-square-foot mixed-use railroad station development located primarily addressed as 600 Northwest 1st Avenue in the western perimeters of Downtown Miami. The renderings reveal in more detail two nearly identical 848-foot-tall primarily residential skyscrapers spanning 83-stories each, potentially addressed and referred to as One MiamiCentral, featuring designs by Borges + Associates Architects and developed by prominent developer Florida East Coast Industries, the parent company of Brightline.
New massing diagrams have been revealed for Florida East Coast Industries’ (FECI) 220 Northwest 1st Avenue and 195 Northwest 2nd Street. The developer is the powerhouse behind the MiamiCentral development, a massive 3 million square-foot mixed-use transportation hub located on a lengthy 9-acre site in Miami’s Historic Overtown District, designed by Skidmore Owings & Merril with Zyscovich Architects as the architect of record. The diagrams are derived from an application filed to the Miami-Dade County Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, which was filed on May 10, 2021.
