Brightline has moved its headquarters to a new office building next to its Miami station.

The 12-story office building, located in downtown Miami, is part of the massive MiamiCentral mixed-use complex being built to house Brightline’s southernmost station. The complex, which spans six city blocks, will also include more than 800 rental apartments, a food hall and a eventually a Tri-Rail stop.

Brightline is the first tenant to move into the 3 MiamiCentral building.

“We are excited to have recently relocated Brightline’s new headquarters to 3 MiamiCentral, which is an important component of MiamiCentral and strategically located in Historic Overtown,” said Patrick Goddard, Brightline’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Downtown Miami continues to transform into a vibrant community, and the addition of this new urban development and passenger rail system will be critical as the city continues to develop.”

The private rail service began shuttling passengers between its stations in West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale last month. The company has said its Miami station is expected to open in the “coming months.” Eventually, the company plans to extend service north to Orlando.
