All Aboard Florida Miami Central Under Construction
The cranes have arrived to start the construction for the new Miami station, “Miami Central” for the All Aboard Florida rail line to Orlando.
Miami Central station is expected to be complete in late 2016 and work has also recently begun on the Fort Lauderdale station.
The All Aboard Florida rail line currently has stops in Orlando, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. This station is expected to be the new transportation hub for the Miami area with connections to the metro rail, the metro mover and also have easy connection to the local freeway system.
The nine acre transportation hub is planned to include residential, commercial, office and retail space. The project is expected to contribute economically by bringing over 2,500 jobs and $1.3 billion between 2014 and 2021.
