Brightline’s apartment towers have arrived at Virgin MiamiCentral.

Park-Line Miami, at 100 Northwest Sixth Street in Overtown, is part of the mixed-use development that is home to MiamiCentral. The project adds two 30-story towers with a combined 816 luxury apartments to the project, and the Greater Downtown Miami multifamily market overall.

Leasing begins this month with rents starting at $1,900 a month, according to a press release. The Bozzuto Group’s Bozzuto Management Company, led by president Stephanie Williams, will manage the rentals. The buildings have studio apartments, and one-, two- and three-bedroom units.

The towers sit on top of Brightline’s rail platform at MiamiCentral. Amenities include a 2-acre amenity deck, pool and Jacuzzi, cabanas and day beds, a lap pool, an outdoor movie theater, a 3,500-square-foot gym, and a running track. The buildings also have outdoor dining areas with grills, a dog park and a pet spa, a business center, club room and bike storage.

Late last year, after Suffolk Construction Co. and others reached a multimillion-dollar settlement over construction issues at MiamiCentral, Suffolk filed a lawsuit against two subsidiaries of FECI, alleging the development group failed to give Suffolk an extension and increase the construction budget for the apartment towers, despite weather delays.

Brightline, which is expected to rebrand as Virgin Trains USA later this year, began operating its train service between Miami and West Palm Beach in 2018, when it opened three mixed-use stations in Miami, downtown Fort Lauderdale and West Palm. Brightline’s parent, Florida East Coast Industries, is backed by the private equity firm Fortress Investment Group. The rail service is expected to expand to Orlando, as well as make additional stops in Aventura and Boca Raton.

Last year, FECI sold the office portion of MiamiCentral for $159.4 million to Shorenstein. The deal included the ground-floor retail space, two office buildings and parking at the project.

MiamiCentral also includes the Central Fare food hall.
