The Miami-Dade County Commissioners yesterday approved All Aboard Florida's land use plan to construct a nine-acre multi-modal station and transit-oriented development in downtown Miami.The transportation hub will include a mixed-use development with residential, office and commercial uses, and a retail concourse, and will serve as a connector between All Aboard Florida’s passengers and Miami’s existing public transport systems, All Aboard Florida officials said in a press release.The company selected Boston-based Suffolk Construction for pre-construction and construction management services for the station, which will be located in the downtown's western area. Construction is anticipated to begin in late fall.The passenger-rail system will be elevated 50 feet to align with existing public transportation systems and with retail spaces located beneath the track. The design will allow through-streets to remain open to traffic and create an atmosphere of walkability, All Aboard Florida officials said."This is definitely a project we want to see happen in the core of downtown. We are optimistic that the project will take us to the next level of urban living," said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Bruno Barreiro.All Aboard Florida is a Miami-to-Orlando passenger-rail project being developed by Florida East Coast Industries Inc.
