The 8th Street Metromover Station Is Officially Renamed “Brickell City Centre Station”
The Miami Metromover’s 8th Street Station was formally renamed the “Brickell City Centre Station” this morning in a ribbon cutting celebration with Mayor Gimenez.
During the construction phase of the $1.05 billion mega project, Swire also upgraded the city-owned transit stop and integrated it directly into the third level of the shopping mall, allowing shoppers and residents the ability to come and go from the development without being exposed to the summer showers that Miami is famous for.
For those who are new to the area, the Miami Metromover is a 4.4 mile electrically powered train system that shuttles people around the Greater Downtown area for free. It is automated and air-conditioned, and can drop people in the Brickell Financial District, Miami-Dade College, Bayfront Park, The Frost Museum and PAMM, Omni Mall and now Brickell City Centre.
There are also transfer stations in Downtown and Brickell that allows people to transfer to the Metrorail, accessing the University of Miami, the Jackson Medical Center hospital district, the Miami International Airport and more. “The Mover,” as it is commonly called, is extremely convenient to people in the Downtown area, and even more now that we can access Brickell City Centre directly.
