The company that is planning to build a 3-hour rail link between Miami and Orlando recently responded to an RFP by the Overtown CRA for a plot of land near a station that they are planning to build in downtown Miami.
All Aboard Florida proposes to build office, retail and residential uses, including a 24-story tower on the overtown parcels. It would be linked to a new Marriott at Miami Worldcenter proposed by MDM, as well as the All Aboard Florida station.
Regardless of the outcome of the Overtown bid, AAF still plans a mixed-use station on a large property that spans seven blocks in downtown Miami. The station will include retail, office space and residential. It will also act as a hub linking the Miami-Orlando rail service with metrorail, metrobus and metromover, with shops and restaurants inside the station.
