The long-term success of Florida East Coast Industries’ high-speed Virgin Trains USA remains in question, but one thing is certain — office tenants are flocking to properties nearby. As a result, the company was able to sell the office portion of its MiamiCentral station for $159.4 million in the largest office sale of 2019 in South Florida.
