Virgin Trains USA — South Florida’s new express-train service, a collab between Brightline and Richard Branson’s Virgin Group — is reshaping development in Miami. A slew of new towers are popping up around those high-speed stations, allowing residents to dash to Palm Beach (and eventually Orlando) in a luxurious wink.
“There was a lot of conversation about connectivity and public transportation as we were planning this project,” says Dan Kodsi, CEO of Paramount Ventures, which is developing Paramount Miami Worldcenter, the signature tower of the 27-acre mixed-use megaproject just three blocks from the Miami Central station. “With the amount of office space, hotel rooms, shops, restaurants and residences we are building, it’s like a little city. Everything is walkable. It’s pretty incredible.”
