Tri-Rail is Coming to Downtown Miami Station but a ‘Super Tower’ Might Not Be
Miami’s future railroad, All Aboard Florida/The Brightline has submitted street re-routings for the south end of the Downtown Miami station site, causing The Next Miami to speculate that the project’s planned ‘supertower’ may have been canceled and replaced with two smaller towers (update: according to a Brightline spokesperson, they are not downsizing the super tower). Meanwhile, yes, it’s official says Miami Today: after some close calls, Tri-Rail will be joining the party. “The South Florida Regional Transportation Authority’s governing board has voted to accept an agreement among local agencies that will allow Tri-Rail trains to roll into the new MiamiCentral station by the end of next year.” From recent construction shots, dated May 24th, over at The Brightline’s snazzy AF website, it looks like station construction, to accommodate both Brightline and Tri-Rail trains, is going just swimmingly.
