First Crane Installed At 3 MiamiCentral

All Aboard Florida’s 3 MiamiCentral had a tower crane installed last week.

When completed, the project will bring 130,157 square feet of retail and office space to Overtown. It will also include 1,114 parking spaces that will serve Brightline passengers.

A short distance away, Brightline’s main terminal, MiamiCentral, is also being prepared for vertical construction.

To answer the question from anonymous with regard to world-class cities without transit; as he probably knows, his wait will be a long one, there are none. In addition I might add, the powers that be, may review other methods of transportation for Miami, they may waste time and money, but in the long run, they will reach the same conclusion other world-class have reached. Only a system of trains will solve Miami’s mass transportation system. Lets get on with it and start planning for this type of system.

Wow! An intelligent comment on this site? I agree CEC, but alas, it all falls on deaf ears. Maybe after all our elected goof balls retire to pasture there might be some real progress in that area. I’ll be dead by then.

I hate how these developers build the tallest at the end. If they get to that point.

Met 3 is an example. Would’ve been better to first build met 3

You need to create density before you can build the most dense component. With regards to MetMiami, the final product will have the same density as the originally planned development. While Met 3 is shorter and less dense, MetSquare did not have a tower component. Basically, they just cut the top off of the old Met3 project and put it on top of MetSquare – great success nonetheless.

I work in one of the buildings in the background with the rainbow colored trim. We were told by our building manager that a Publix is going in here.

Yes, that is the Overtown Transit Village. There are County and State offices there.

I also work in those bldgs and thats been the rumor. However, nothing official has been released to suggest that it is indeed going to be a Publix. When you look at the surrounding area, that site may not be viable to support a supermarket of that size. Im of the opinion that something much smaller will end up there.

There are over 2,000 units planned or under construction within two blocks of this project (does not include worldcenter). Not to mention that it’s tied to the Metrorail, TriRail and Brightline station. The demand already exists… try going to the Publix on Biscayne and 17th on a weekend.

For people driving from the suburbs to park and then ride the train to orlando duh.

Is all of this really necessary? I mean who is actually going to take the train? Plus, we are spending all of this public money to put Tri-Rail in there too! If we knew what was good for us, instead of rail, we would use all of this land to build big buildings, collect the tax receipts, and fix all of our roads to make traffic flow better. It’s time we got realistic and quit trying to pretend like a train station will make us “world class”.

Building more roads causes induced demand which makes traffic worse. It’s a never ending process and the best way to make traffic flow better is to remove as many cars from the streets as we can.

You pointed out induced demand. That also works for the cars that transit removes from the road; more cars follow. However, the real key is presenting more options. Those options allow for people, who might otherwise be deterred by the premise of traffic, to actually go places, leading to an improved economy and city vibrancy.

It will not make us a world class city but it is one step closer. By the way, get out of your car and breath some fresh air….you need it!!!
