MiamiCentral Rerouting Downtown Streets For Two More Towers

All Aboard Florida is making big plans for the second phase of MiamiCentral.

Land previously reserved for single “supertower” has now been split into two separate tracts, according to documents filed with the county last month. The plans indicate that each tract will have a separate tower.

The two new developments will be located at the intersection of Northwest 1st Avenue and Northwest 2nd Street, adjacent to the current Miamicentral construction site. The new developments will include:

  • Tract F (1.376 acres) will include a tower with 750 hotel rooms and 50,000 square feet of retail space
  • Tract G (1.326 acres) will include a tower with 800,000 square feet of office space and an additional 50,000 square feet of retail

All Aboard Florida submitted a request to have the property replatted into the two separate tracts last month, and a county committee is recommending approval.

As part of the replatting, Northwest First Avenue will be straightened, with part of what is currently a roadway being added to the project site.

The proposed hotel would be bigger than any existing hotel within the city of Miami, while the office tower would be one of the biggest ever built in the city.

Interest in the first phase of the project has been strong, with most of the office and retail space already leased.
