The company behind the planned Brightline rail service unveiled an outdoor mural at the site of its West Palm Beach station under construction on the 500 block of Clematis Street.

The 24-foot-long mural depicts a woman riding a Brightline train and looking out the window at a man awaiting her arrival. West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and several city commissioners attended the mural unveiling ceremony.

The artist who created the mural is a West Palm Beach resident known as Smog, who is known for his photo-realistic style and use of illusions and 3-D characters.

Julie Edwards, Brightline’s chief marketing officer, said in  a press lease that “while our station is under construction, we are … pleased to bring this incredible new visually appealing addition to downtown.”

Foundation work has started at the site of Brightline’s West Palm Beach station, and at another site about one mile north, construction of a Brightline train maintenance facility went vertical last week as crews began pouring concrete.

The site of the maintenance facility is a 12-acre parcel that includes a vintage set of industrial buildings that will be renovated by All Aboard Florida, the Coral Gables-based company developing the intercity Brightline rail service.

The  Brightline rail service between West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Orlando is expected to begin in mid-2017.
