3 MiamiCentral Begins Vertical Construction In Overtown

All Aboard Florida’s 3 MiamiCentral has officially commenced the vertical phase of construction after the first columns were poured last week.

Foundation work began in September.

3 MiamiCentral will include 130,157 square feet of retail, office and commercial space on a 1.89-acre lot located at 160 NW 7th Street. It will also include 1,114 parking spaces that will serve the MiamiCentral mixed-use project and the Lyric Theater.

The project is being built on land that the company acquired from the Southeast Overtown/Park West Overtown Community Redevelopment Agency in August for $5.4 million.

Just blocks away, the remainder of the MiamiCentral project, including a Brightline train terminal, is also near the vertical phase of construction.

That is supposed to be a condo development called Krystal Towers, but no real work has been done on that site for a few years. I tried calling their sales office a few times, but the phone just rings.

That’s pretty sad now with all the development going on around it, it will just be an eyesore

Krystal Towers was just a little ahead of its time. The next cycle with catch this site for sure, especially once Miami Central, Miami World Center, and Beckham’s Stadium are completed.

I wish you would stop mentioning Beckhams stadium as being within walking distance to these projects. They are not. Last week you mentioned that Latitude was within walking distance to the stadium. You are confusing people who don’t live here or are from out of town. I don’t care if you came in first ahead of that dude from Kenya in the Boston Marathon, you would be nuts to walk from Latitude to Beckhams new stadium. Get a grip.

Ok Sherlock, how am I exaggerating when I actually clocked it? My business partner lives at Latitude, 0.9 miles exactly! If you think that is not within walking distance you are probably one of the many people who has to drive everywhere. The Boston marathon is 26.2 miles, that is 13 games back and forth, just because you can’t walk it doesn’t me no one else can.

I wish you knew what you were talking about before personally calling out others.

In the second set of photos – in the “photos below” section – look at the FIRST picture! You can see I-95 just ONE BLOCK to the west. Beckham’s stadium site is just THREE BLOCKS west of I-95. It is just .4 miles from this location to the stadium, a 10-minute walk.

I’ve personally walked from nearly the center of the proposed stadium site to the Post Office (also seen in the picture I mentioned – the flat building diagonal from the 3MC site and in front of the Police building). I’ve also walked from the stadium site to the Wilkie D Ferguson Metromover station that’s 2 blocks further southeast from the 3MC site (.7 miles per Google Maps).

I mean, shoot, the walk from American Airlines Arena to the Beckham site is only 1-mile (24 minutes per Google Maps).

Thumbs down? Sorry you folks feel it’s “unwalkable” even though it’s only FOUR blocks.

And I clearly must’ve missed something. I thought this site with the grocer and everything, was supposed to be developed by a group of black/Overtown developers. Did that change? Do I have the wrong site?

Could you be thinking of the adjacent site, one block North?

I’m thinking of this. But maybe the grocer wasn’t their proposal.

i’ve always wondered what are those weird balcony-less matching buildings in the background of the GROCER picture?

I can imagine it’s difficult to build in Miami with all the rain. All i see is pools of water!

A lot of that water is ground water rising to the surface through the pilings from the aquifer.
