Foundations are being set for All Aboard Florida’s station in downtown Miami, and the company recently released a video update on construction progress for the project.

JC Freyre, the company’s vice president of construction, said workers are setting the augercast piles that will support the two-acre, mixed-use station when it’s completed.

MiamiCentral will stretch five blocks along Northwest First Avenue and house five rail tracks. The tracks will be suspended 50 feet in the air, with retail and restaurants filling the space below. Above the tracks, All Aboard will build two apartment buildings — with a combined 850 units — and a 200,000-square-foot office building.

The Miami to West Palm Beach leg of the rail service will begin operating in 2017, with trips between Miami and Orlando offered later that year.

“Getting all that to dance together is challenging,” Freyre said in the video. “But it’s actually a lot of fun.”
