As flashy, glass towers pull Downtown Miami ever skyward, SOM has unveiled plans for a transit hub that floats 50 feet above terre ferme. The 1,000-foot-long Miami Station sits atop reinforced concrete trusses and is set to become a cornerstone in Florida’s long-awaited, inter-city, express rail. The station—which has retail and restaurants—is just one third of a 3-million-square-foot development site that includes new residential and commercial towers, which will be phased-in after the station is completed.
