MIAMI – (January 31, 2018) – Florida East Coast Industries is pleased to announce the completion of 3 MiamiCentral, its first mixed-use tower at MiamiCentral and to welcome its first office tenant, Brightline. Brightline, the nation’s only privately funded inter-city, express passenger rail service, officially moved its corporate headquarters to 3 MiamiCentral, and HNTB, a nationally recognized infrastructure solutions firm, recently signed a lease for its Miami office. 3 MiamiCentral boasts panoramic views of Miami and features Class A offices, retail and parking.
Other major tenants joining MiamiCentral include Cisneros, Ernst & Young, Moss & Associates, Spaces and Florida East Coast Industries.
“MiamiCentral is set to raise the bar for future office environments and 3 MiamiCentral is the first new standard,” said Daniel Quintana, vice president of development for Florida East Coast Industries. “From the variety of integrated transit options to the desired lifestyle offerings just one elevator ride from the offices, the built-in amenities that come with working at MiamiCentral are truly immeasurable.”
Within the design of 3 MiamiCentral, architect AECOM integrated a series of grand scale art installations by Robert McKnight, a celebrated South Florida-based artist with an extensive portfolio of public work. McKnight’s installations can be seen on the south, west and north exteriors of the building and include two friezes and three murals. The art itself is a vibrant collage of images including the notes from an old blues guitarist that turn into butterflies, antique African masks, and representation of Lena Horne, a famous actress, singer and activist among other cultural references. Collectively, the artwork pays homage to the surrounding Historic Overtown community, bringing to life a beautiful representation of culture and history to the mixed-use development.
3 MiamiCentral was completed in December 2017 and is located at 161 NW 6TH Street Miami, FL 33136.
