Publix Is Coming To Overtown’s 3 MiamiCentral

It’s official: Publix has signed a deal with All Aboard Florida to open at the 3 MiamiCentral project in Overtown.

The grocery chain will occupy the ground floor of the project, with just 26,671 square feet of space.

Publix has recently been opening smaller-format stores with a “hipster vibe” geared towards millennials, but it hasn’t yet announced plans for the Overtown store.

A Memorandum of Lease also appears to show one level of parking for Publix customers, with 93 spaces.

The lease will run for an initial term of 20 years, with options to extend it for another 40 years.

Publix has been granted the right of first refusal in the event of a sale, and also has the sole right to operate a grocery anywhere at MiamiCentral, including the adjacent station.

Finally, a Publix downtown!

You know there’s one nine blocks north?

Seriously? There are 3 publixs with a mile radius of one another. One of which is basically downtown. Complete overkill. I love Publix, but Jesus do we need a 4th?

you need one for the poor people. considering this new one is closer to Overtown, they are more likely to use it instead of going deeper towards the rich people one.

Pioneer

What??? Rich and poor??? As if you don’t find all kind of people at Publix at Brickell…you don’t know what you are talking about!!! And in case you don’t know they are building 2,000 units for rich people as you call it jut 3 blocks from this Publix

The “rich people one?”

With such an example of poor grammar like that, I guess you’ll be using the Overtown Publix.

Such a profoundly weird comment.

One of which IS DOWNTOWN.

There’s are two 500 foot residential towers rising above the train station along with the others being built at MWC and more than that if you include Vice and the proposed super tall on biscayne. Bottom line, there’s never too many affordable supermarkets. When you have that many people in the urban core.

Nobody wants another Publix. They should have gone with Trader Joe’s.

Yes, we do need another one, they are very full during Rush hour and if you walk, 9 blocks is a lot to carry your groceries.

That’s why it would be more sensible to say, “finally a Publix serving CBD!” But if we don’t get a better sense of our downtown fabric and start connecting the threads, it will continue to be a disconnected mess.

But the comment isn’t ANOTHER Public downtown! It’s FINALLY a Publix downtown. The Edgewater Publix is in the DDA region and, thus, is a PUBLIX DOWNTOWN. Call me pedantic, but I just find stuff like this frustrating.

Perfect for this area. Totally okay with this.

I was hoping for Trader Joe’s

Nice project

Yohan Perez

So there are 199 grocery stores but none open 24 hours. The only exception is the sorry & stale Price choice at 18th and NE 2nd Ave. Why is no one open 24 hours in this city? At least the Edgewater Publix should be open 24×7.

How about a Trader’s Joe. At least they are opening one in Miami Beach.

news flash: Millenials shop at Trader Joe’s not Publix.

Wish It could have been something else but the people in this area need something affordable. It’s just that Publix is so boring and common I hope they at least design the interior different from any other Publix.

I have absolutely no interest in shopping at a Publix. I drive past 3-4 of them to shop at Trader Joe’s. So disappointed in All Aboard/Miami Central.

That’s a nice wall they are building in Overtown.

Anonymous

is it me or is the parking garage of this building larger that the actual building lol!.

marc

That’s because it will help service the train station as well as its residents and people that will work in the office tower above the station.

Easy marc…you gave him a little too much to think about right there.

This will help increase the wall ability score for the area. A very good thing.

Oh boy another Publix! They are a great chain and all but how about some other options for the area.

There is a Winn Dixie a mile and a quarter west of here.

In addition to a Top Value Supermarket which is closer than the Winn Dixie.

What a disappointment!
The most boring, mundane supermarket I’ve ever been to

We don’t need a Whole Foods every block.

It’s progress and we need more of that.

another Publix is NOT progress.

This is the coup-de-grace in the gentrification of Overtown… New stores and restaurants, new rental buildings, community swimming pool and football field, two steps from the new Brightline rail line and Tri-Rail… and now a Publix, the cherry on the top of all Florida gentrified communities.

And what’s wrong with gentrifying over town? That place is drug and gang ridden, no one would every step a foot outside day or night–even their own people. Look how fantastic wynwood had became and heck, look how more walkable all of downtown had became in 10 years time. Gentrification is a good thing, especially if you’re the same person who birches and moan about wanting Miami to be a “world class city”.

Marc305

Overtown is sandwiched between Brickell, Downtown, and Wynwood. There is no way it is not going to be gentrified, it is just a matter of time. People can be for it or against it, but it is what it is, by 2040 these 4 areas will just be a big concrete jungle, if not sooner.

It is called progress

Publix is not progress. The processed foodstuff they sell is disgusting.
