Notice Of Commencement Filed At Brightline’s MiamiCentral Supertowers Site

Brightline’s parent company filed a Notice Of Commencement stating that construction was beginning at their Supertower property in downtown Miami.

According to the filing, the following work is now getting underway:

Re-alignment of NW 1st Avenue from NW 1st to 2nd Street, and all associated work, such as demolition, water/sewer/paving/drainage, civil (grading, site improvements, hardscape, etc.)

The document was recorded on November 3.

By rerouting NW 1st Avenue, the developer will create a squared off site for the southern Supertower.

However, it will make driving in the area more difficult by breaking up the grid. A small park is also being demolished.

Two 83-story towers are planned with a combined 2,007 residential units, 49,634 square feet of retail, and 2,136 parking spaces.

Another developer may ultimately build the towers. A broker marketing the property previously showed the property as being in contract.

 

The photos below were taken on September 26, and also show construction at the courthouse site:

Extend the platform into the 2 towers so you can fit Amtrak trains in downtown Miami

Or better yet, hyperloop platforms. Amtrak is old and out of date and will eventually be replaced across the country with cheaper private companies like Brightline

Amtrak will always be necesary to service unprofitable routes that private companies will never touch. Unless we start treating rail like the airlines and subsidize private companies to run these routes ig

That’s why we have regional jets.

You mean by throwing more money at it so they can build more stations where trains don’t fit? Yeah right. Besides, Pete Buttplug would rather see monies rebuild “racist” bridges.

It’s nothing cheap or affordable about Brightline.

If Amtrak is old and out of date (true), What should we call Tri Rail?

This is where our thinking should be on the next revolutionary transit technology, but that too much to ask

Two 83-story towers would have everything to be the most iconic complex in the city, but the renderings already presented show that they will be towers with absolutely no artistic and architectural appeal. It is a pity. Another missed opportunity.

You’re not wrong.. One of the worst aesthetic designs I’ve seen for buildings of that magnitude. Oh well!

The castle looking structure that is the library and history of Miami museum needs to be torn down there’s and opened up to pedestrians on street level it looks like it belongs in medieval times!

This is going to be an awesome boon to that area of Downtown.

I agree that these two large towers will bring great movement to Downtown. There are only two types of architectural projects, the ugly and the beautiful. Why not make a prettier building? These two towers are too ugly. If they were beautiful, they would be a great contribution to the city’s skyline as well.

Re-alignment by dis-aligning a curved street, which could have made the “supertower(s)” an interesting shape. SAD!

This is gonna bring so much activity west I’m excited to see how this area shapes up and connects with MWC. After this development let’s put the twin tower situation to rest tho. Miami’s really starting to look like a CITY.

That is an insane amount of parking for a building near so many transit options.
