Brightline Parent Company Continues Planning For Miami Supertowers A & B At MiamiCentral

The parent company of Brightline has split in two the entities that will develop two Supertowers at MiamiCentral.

Two companies were created to manage the properties: Miami Supertower A LLC and Miami Supertower B LLC.

The two entities filed a plat extension request with Miami Dade County over the summer, which was scheduled for review in July.

The plat documents state that there will be two separate developments on the two plots just south of the existing MiamiCentral facility.

The north supertower closest to the existing Brightline hub will have 800,000 square feet of office space and 50,000 square feet of retail.

A south supertower next to the Miami-Dade civil courthouse will have 750 hotel rooms and 50,000 square feet of retail.

Previous filings with the FAA have listed tower heights of 991 feet above ground, or 1,000 feet above sea level.

Executives from Brightline parent company Florida East Coast Industries are listed as the managers of the new entities. Each LLC appears to be have been formed  in Delaware in late 2018 and registered with Florida’s Division of Corporations in 2019.

FECI sold two completed office buildings at the complex, 2 MiamiCentral & 3 MiamiCentral, for $159 million in 2019.

We need a destination resort world high end casino in that area. That would go towards securing the viability of the Brightline train concept. The 1000s of Orlando/West Palm tourists would do a day at that casino as part of their holidays.

We don’t need casinos, we need more museums, theaters, and a state of the art public transportation that isn’t buses. Plus we need less cars and more bike lanes. That’s where the future’s at.

More bike lanes? So we can go to the grocery store with our bike and carry back bags of groceries on our bike in 95 degree temperatures under the hot sun in July and get caught in the rain.

Yep.. and Miami also need “a state of the art public transportation” system so the people of MiamiDade can get to their museums in air-conditioned comfort.

Boy.. if this city keeps listening to stale people living in it, it’ll continue to be stuck in boredom.

We need more entertainment in the downtown region. Besides clubs and bars… Miami needs a six flags or something!!!! Disney too far and expensive. Don’t even have a Dave and Busters type of attraction. Skyrise was the only hope. Museums are cool but what about the adventurous folks

…..do you even know the history of I-95? It literally ripped Overtown apart. The whole point of the Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956 was to tear apart Black communities throughout the US under the masquerade of “Urban Renewal.” Try driving around Miami or maybe even just educating yourself before you throw some snarky comments.

I keep seeing people talk about a casino on every post but when Genting proposed one yall were against it! I’ll say this once and for all if you could build a new casino in Miami it would be done! The casinos that exist in or around Miami are grandfathered in. New casinos have to have a license that you can’t just get, those licenses have only been given to companies like the Seminole tribe. Seminole has had the license for years now and if a multibillion dollar company like Genting who has lobbied millions to get one still haven’t been able to! We might as well forget about the idea of Miami seeing another casino ever!

Ridiculous argument. So let’s give up in perpetuity and allow the Seminole tribe to have an exclusive monopoly in perpetuity when our state population is growing by 1000 people per day.

The people of Florida passed an amendment blocking any new licenses. The only way I see Genting building their casino is if they manage to buy an existing license or partner with an existing casino in Miami. I really hope they do something soon with that property though.

Glad to see more office space. Not all of us are retired so jobs are welcome, and if Rs win Senate then fiscal recovery help for cities and states is unlikely, so taking opportunities to expand property tax revenues makes sense.

Why would they even elaborate on the brightline towers, only to disappoint by informing that the property has been sold. So in fact, there really is no plan for these towers. How about waiting to see if the lot will even be sold, and if so, what will be built.
