816-Unit Parkline MiamiCentral Will Have A Robotic Parking Garage

Parkline MiamiCentral is being built with a robotic parking garage that makes use of car elevators, accessible only by valet, according to the architect.

The projects includes 816 rental apartment units in twin towers, with 30 and 33 floors above the MiamiCentral project.

Residents will have live directly above 180,000 square feet of retail space, including a food hall. Publix will be located less than a block away at 3 MiamiCentral.

To commute to work, residents will be able to take Metromover, Metrorail, Tri-Rail or Brightline trains – all of which are inside or attached to the complex. The first phase of the project also includes 300,000 square feet of office, so some residents will be able to live and work without leaving MiamiCentral.

PARKLINE AT MIAMICENTRAL
(Overbuild OB2 AND OB3)
Miami, Florida

30 and 33 story residential towers
816 residential units
1,065,000 sf combined
parking garage

Developer: Lincoln Property Company & Brightline
Architect of Record: NBWW
Design Architect: SOM

Developed by Lincoln Property Company & Brightline, ParkLine (Overbuild OB2 and OB3) are two residential high rise buildings designed to be atop of MiamiCentral Brightline passenger train station. With an approximate area of 1,065,000 square feet, the combined number of dwelling units between OB2 with 30 stories, and OB3 with 33 stories, is 816 dwelling units. The amenities deck, a podium shared by the two towers, is equipped with two pools, a running track, outdoor and indoor exercise areas, grill areas, pet park, yoga lawn, landscape areas and other miscellaneous uses. The towers are independently accessed from ground level lobbies. Passenger elevators bypass the train station and stop at all upper floors and the amenities deck. Parking is exclusively valet-only through the use of car elevators and a car-stackable mechanical system.

Don’t forget commuters can also use Tri-Rail to work.

Here we go again with the robotic garages.

Eliminating ramps allows for garages to be renovated into different uses in the future more easily. Just because Brickell house messed up, does not mean these guys will.

Excellent example of urban Mixed-use development.. residential, commercial, cultural, institutional, and transportation!

Yeah…but how many Miamians will be able to afford to live in these towers?

Just an estimate…
816 rental units, with 5% vacancy when stabalized… call it 775 with an average of 1.5 ppl per unit, that’s about +/- 1,162.

If I had to use my car every day this would be a deal-breaker. However, since there are so many transit options I hope most residents do not need a car daily and this can reduce the size of the parking garage due to lack of ramps.

Good point.. I do think most downtown residents only use their cars sparingly and on weekends.

Why parking garages at all? Smh

Whoever decides to live in that particular project, probably doesn’t have a car in mind…

I’m curious to see how they manage the noise from the tracks below. I live on the 47 floor at the Mint and can still hear the metro rail loud and clear every fifteen minutes. I guess it comes with the territory and convenience of living there.

Oh yeah, well try dealing with the Metrorail, Jet airplanes, and expressway noise where I live.

I live next to the tracks at the Ivy and it can be noisy, but you get used to it (at least I did).

Worse than the noise will be the diesel (“diesel-electric”) locomotives, I think.

Great, and it’s painted like a striped bowling shirt and has holes poked in it like Swiss cheese. Let me guess, that was Zycovich’s input because it looks horrendously cheap between SOM’s work on the base and towers.

The towers were designed by NBWW, not Zyscovich.

Go figure, another architect to add to the clutter. What a shame, because I liked NBWWs earlier work, like from the 2000s building boom, and the good stuff still commissioned never sees the light of day (Island Gardens and 18 at 8th Street).

The Miami Central project also has a robotic parking garage in the office building located at the north end of the structure. The office space appears to be leased and the steel structure is nearly complete.

Hope that this robotic garage doesn’t break down or is plagued with issues like the others.

Brickell House has a robotic garage too. Good luck.
