Two supertowers planned by Brightline’s parent company at their MiamiCentral complex have been redesigned, according to plans submitted to the county on August 6.
The two new towers are proposed to rise 83 stories, or 848 feet.
Instead of building the supertowers with office and hotel use, the towers will be residential.
Brightline decided to switch to residential after completing and leasing two other residential towers at MiamiCentral last year with 816 apartments
Under the new proposal, Supertower A and Supertower B at MiamiCentral are proposed to include a total of:
2,007 residential units (1,003 in the south tower, 1,004 in the north)
49,634 square feet of retail (25,250 square feet in the south tower, 24,384 in the north)
2,136 parking spaces (1,058 in the south tower, 1,078 in the north)
The developer says the design has also been updated to improve connectivity to the Metrorail, incorporate ridesharing, such as Uber and Lyft, and provide more open space and green space in order to create a higher quality development for residents and visitors to downtown.
The company recently obtained $200m in additional financing secured by the supertower properties, among others.
The new renderings included in the submittal are labeled as a massing study.
