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.
