All Aboard Florida Breaks Ground On 3 MiamiCentral In Overtown

All Aboard Florida began construction on the 12-story 3 MiamiCentral office and parking complex in Overtown this week.

The company filed a Notice of Commencement yesterday that site demolition, mobilization, excavation and foundation work was underway. Construction crews were seen moving dirt in the site earlier this week.

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 late last month for $5.4 million.

A short walk from the construction site, foundation work on the main portion of the MiamiCentral mixed-use project is nearly complete. Hundreds of residential units, along with over 100,000 square feet of retail is planned there.

Miami commissioners were also scheduled to vote today on a plan to turn over air rights to All Aboard Florida that will allow the project to be built above city streets.

Suffolk Construction is the contractor for MiamiCentral, while Facchina Construction is the contractor for 3 MiamiCentral.

The 4th picture shows the proximity of this project to Miami World Center and the new twin towers proposed at the site of the Grand Central bar. This is very exciting to see, it is the actual creation of a bigger vibrant Downtown Miami.

Any word on if they’re actually going to have a ‘GROCER’ as shown in the renderings, and what grocer that might be? Downtown Publix No. 5? Whole Foods No. 2? Presidente??? Sedanos??? LOL – Please not the latter two.

Even if it just a Publix, it will be a hit. Supermarkets in downtown are always packed. I just hope that if they end up opening a Publix, they open a store that is more modern and hip with a type of market vibe; sonething like Eataly.

I work in this area and the developer informed our building manager that a Publix is going in this building along with other restaurant\retail and parking.

If it is a Publix then that will be a mighty small one at only 29,000 sq feet. Heck the new Whole Foods downtown is over 40,000 feet.

The city is making a mistake with closing streets and building over them downtown. These projects are not making a pedestrian friendly environment.

You really do need to travel and visit other cities to get some kind of concept for different variations to build in a downtown.
