All Aboard Florida Selects Construction Manager For Downtown Rail Station

Suffolk Construction has been selected as the construction manager for All Aboard Florida’s planned terminal in downtown Miami.

The clock is already ticking for AAF, which is paying 12% interest on a $405 million bond offering. A mortgage on the nine-acre property Miami property tied to the bond issue was recently recorded (see below).

AAF also recently completed the process of re-platting of the site, and signed a $2 million deal with the county to bring utilities to the site.

County commissioners approved plans for the station last week, with final details up for administrative approval before a planned September groundbreaking.
